Don't you just love live television?

Kady Malloy looking like she's totally ready to go home, Alaina Whitaker's name being called instead and an ensuing breakdown by Alaina--including her screaming "I can't sing!" How can you not love America Idol after a night like tonight? And then you had David Archuleta breaking down at the ouster of Alexandrea? What was going on there?

Quite an entertaining show tonight. Sure, I only got one out of four correct tonight, but I don't think we lost anyone that had any chance to actually win the competition. Sure, Simon decreed last night that Alaina was a "darkhorse" in the competition, but we all know what happens to most teenagers on this show (except I guess for Jordin Sparks)--they hit a wall after a few weeks of the finals. Jason Yeager was never very good, Alexandrea's voice wasn't that good--despite what Randy said--and Robbie was kind of boring. And I don't feel bad for him after seeing his very hot girlfriend.

The most nauseating moment of the night was Paula telling Alaina that this was only the start of what will be "her amazing career." I suppose it's possible, Paula, but you really have no idea about that. She finished 20th on American Idol, not second. I know she was trying to perk Alaina up, but she could have said something else--like "think about how much you accomplished" or "think of all the opportunities ahead now." That's why people like Simon--he doesn't tell people they're great and they're going to be a success just to be nice.

As for the rest of the show, I can't believe how bad that medley was tonight. Can they get worse? And I hope we're not going to have to watch highlights of "Idol Gives Back" on every results show until April.

I think she was screaming "I can't sing (my exit song like this)"...

Yeah, pretty sure that was "can't". Also, while we're editing your post (hehe), Simon said Alaina was the "dark horse". Not "darkhouse", that would be silly.

I'm really REALLY surprised to see Amanda make it another week. She must have a big fan contingent out there.

Thanks for the corrections. I found the clip on YouTube, and I think you guys are correct--and it makes much more sense in context. So I fixed that and that "darkhouse" typo.

Alaina Whitaker doesn't deserve any conversation. Her breakdown showed why she doesn't deserve to be the Idol. Voted off...sing. Act like a pro if you want to be one.

Elvira, oops Amanda has got to be the luckiest person in the world. She was awful on Wednesday, and she was worse during the group sing on Thursday. I am sure that even she was expecting to go home last night instead of Alexandrea. Granted Alexandrea was not going to wiin the whole thing, but she should be around longer than the Mistress of the Night.

Real cool with both Jason and Robbie being voted off. Neither one did anything at all for me. Now I just have to wait for other people to get tired of David Hernandez.

Is the David Hernandez rumor as joked about on Conan O'Brien true? If not, I really don't want to post it here.

It was a good show. I can't say that I was surprised that Dead Meat was voted off but thinking back on it, more than I should, Luke Menard was even worse than he or Robbie.
