Stop the crying

Considering all the crying by singers and gnashing of teeth by Ryan and some judges about tonight's eliminations, you'd think they were shocking. But while the two most deserving of booting didn't go tonight--Sanjaya and Antonella--it's not like Nick, Alaina and Leslie were all that surprising or undeserved. A.J. does have a beef--and he sang his song even better tonight--but let's face it, it's not like he had any chance to win the competition.

And after hearing two of the worst performances ever on American Idol the last two nights with Sanjaya and Antonella, tonight we saw the absolute worst sing-off ever. I can't remember ever seeing a contestant who found herself completely unable to sing most of the song. If Alaina was a profesional, I'd say that was unprofessional. Remember, when Alaina auditioned, she said Idol was her last chance at a show business career, and she was going to give it up if she didn't make it. I'm wondering if her crying was due to her having to leave Idol, or the fact that she may now realize she really does have to give up that dream of a show business career--because 19th place on American Idol really doesn't get you very far.

As for Kellie Pickler, during most of her appearance I wondered whether she had some work done, because her breasts look huge. Why, though, she came with that old-looking hairstyle and sang that slow, boring song--even if it was her next single--is beyond me. I heard her first single, called something like "My Red High Heels," and it was fun and not bad. But that song, while kind of pretty, is what Simon would call "exactly the wrong song for you." Interestingly, the judges didn't give Kellie much of an ovation--kind of rare considering they usually give a standing ovation to any Idol alum that comes back. I guess they were as unimpressed as I was.

So who sings next Thursday? With both Katharine and Taylor's albums tanking, I presume it will be one of them.

Kellie's breasts: I think that is what Ryan was referring to when he said "you send your money on anything special?" At least that's how I took it.
