We have a final 12

Not much to say about tonight's Idol. The only person we lost that we probably shouldn't have lost was Asia'h, since she had much more energy and personality and better vocal chops than Kristy Lee Cook. Although she could have been someone who developed enought to stick around for a while, I doubt she really had any chance to win--so it's not a huge loss. As for Kristy, I'd be shocked if she's still around by the beginning of April.

Oh, and Paula, really, your effusive praise of those kicked off and claims that they have some kind of huge career ahead of them after finishing 14th in American Idol--it's not doing them any favors and making you look even crazier, if that was possible.

The other three cuts--Danny, Luke and Kady--were expected, but after watching his farewell video, I realized I will miss Danny. His singing wasn't that great, but he was awfully entertaining. I'm not nearly as upset as Ramiele, though--I hope she can recover enough to sing next week.

There were two highlights of the show tonight other than the top 12 reveal. One, we didn't have to watch a horrible medley. And two, Blake Lewis was really good. I might have to check out that album.

So we've got a new set and Beatles songs next week for two hours of Idol fun on Tuesday. Here's how I see the competition at this point: Archuleta is the heavy favorite at about even odds. Let's make Carly as second choice at 3-1. Let's make Michael Johns the third choice at 7-2, Brooke White and David Cook at 10-1, Jason Castro at 12-1, Syesha at 20-1 and the rest of the field at 50-1.

Fingerhut out.

I agree that Blake was good and his song was catchy. I heard a different song by him on XM and it was good as well.

You know, I did think, while watching Asia'h sing, that America got it wrong. As you said, though, she and Kady both refused to take the constructive criticism, continued to do songs that didn't really work for them, and I guess that might have cost them.

Danny vs. Chikeze: I think that Danny had three less than great performances, while Chikeze had one great one and two mediocre ones. Maybe it's as simple as that.

Luke and Kady were both "writing on the wall" sort of things. Hot writing, in both cases, but boring writing.

As usual, you summation of last night was right on the money; down to your comments about Asia'h. Should have been Kristy Lee, but that will happen in the next few weeks. As far as I am concerned, yeah on Sanjaya, I mean Danny leaving. I just can't stomach him.

John, are you OK? I know you will miss Kady, but you have a week or two to ogle Kristy Lee.

Love the odds that you have here. For my money, Jason has a better chance than David Cook. I think people will get tired of him. He's boring. Other rhan that, dude you should send these picks to Vegas.

Have a great weekend!!!

Kson220: you know, I kind of thought that Asia'h was just as cute as Kristy and a better singer.
I could have lusted after her just as easily and my ears would have enjoyed it more.

Another thing: how young are all of these girls? I'm starting to feel uuggy.

Okay all of you, this is a singing competition, not Vistoria's secret fashion show. But, Michael Johns is HOT! (and he lives in Atlanta!)

Somewhat agree with some of your odds Eric but Archuleta was not that great this week and I need to see a little more out of him coupled with stepping out of his box a bit. We shall see. Fingerhut Jr out!
