Speaking of country, Carrie Underwood returned to the Idol stage to perform her new single, "Blown Away," which I guess is about the terrible Oklahoma weather or something. Perhaps it needed Lauren Alaina in the wings squeezing out fake tears for all the tornado victims, because it actually just came off as an ode to the wind machine that threatened to blow her dress away.
There wasn't much else to report from last night's results show, other than, YO, DAWG! IT WAS LIKE WE WERE AT A COLDPLAY CONCERT! Yeah, U2 Lite got special treatment and graced us with two songs that no one could tell apart. Neither of them were about tornadoes. At least I don't think so.
On to Top 4 Week, the theme of which will be "songs by California artists." No word on whether there will be a second or even third theme since there will be more time to kill and everyone might be performing three songs now. Well, the bassist from the Dave Matthews Band is from California, so if the other two themes are "songs by South African artists" and "songs by artists who have emptied a busload of shit-water on unsuspecting tourists," Phillips will have it made!
