The people get it right tonight

Phil was very good Tuesday night on American Idol, but I think pretty much everyone would agree that he and Chris were certainly numbers 5 and 6 if you were ranking the American Idol singers on their overall performances throughout the competition. Which is why I was glad to see them go tonight and leave the final four of Jordin, Melinda, Blake and LaKisha--which considering all the inferior singing we've heard this winter and spring, is a pretty solid group that all conceivably have a chance to win if they really sing well over the next few weeks.

Other than that, wow, another big time waster tonight. Wow, I'm so glad we got to see "highlights" of "Idol Gives Back." It's been so long, a full week, since we saw that interminable Ben Stiller bit, and I couldn't wait to see it again and relive those memories. Having said that, it was nice to see that Ruben Stubbard is still alive and Idol was able to find him.

A couple other notes--Was Ryan's reference to Simon's "puppet" a reference to, um, "little Simon"? And I'm not sure why everyone was laughing so hard when Ryan said Simon's relationship with his girlfriend was "very serious," but if anyone knows, please enlighten me.

Robin Thicke? I don't get it. As for Bon Jovi, the song wasn't bad, but they had to sing a power ballad? Would it have killed them to have rocked a little bit? And was the trivia question tonight really about something that had happened ten minutes earlier (where the Idols went in the Ford commercial?) You mean the questions like "Who sang last on last year's Idol finale?" weren't easy enough?

You know, I'm not a Phil fan, but mildly like Chris. But they were the logical ones to go, you're right.

It was a dull dull dull show.

I agree that the show is so boring I'm surprised anyone takes the time to watch it. But they finally got it right.
