My American Idol Weekly Verdict

(If you are here to see our ultrasound pictures and find out the winner of the Monster Truck vs. Cutie Pie debate, click here)

I was a lousy commentator on American Idol last week, wasn't I? No bragging rights. : (

My DVR didn't record correctly, and I missed all of Idol Gives Back and the results show. I was so bummed! I was also shocked to learn through the grapevine that Michael Johns went home. I didn't predict he'd make it to the top, but I also did not expect to see him go home so soon.

So, on to last night's show. To be honest, I expected it to be a disaster because it was Mariah Carey week. I wondered how anyone would be able to pull off one of her songs without sounding like an imitation.
I especially worried about the guys singing her songs, but I didn't need to worry about them at all. The boys stole the show!
When it came to the girls, it pretty much was a disaster.
Painful to Watch:

I have been a Brooke fan all along so it pains me to say this, but I thought she was the worst of the night, and I'm afraid she's going home tonight. She needed something spectacular last night in order to stay in this, and it just didn't happen.

I've also been a Carly fan, but she is in trouble, too. Her performance was so forced. I predict these two will be the bottom two tonight.

Not too bad, but unimpressive:

I have to give "props" to Kristy, though. She is a scrapper! She's fought hard to stay in this so long.

The Stars of the Night:

When David Cook finished singing, I said, "Wow. I can't believe he just sang a Mariah Carey song." My husband said, "He didn't. He sang his OWN song."
That's what made the guys great last night. They took her songs and made them their own. My favorite was Jason. Wow!
I think I'm ready to make a prediction for who will be the final two. I think it will be the two Davids with Jason as the third. The girls don't stand a chance.
Have fun watching tonight!

Thanks for the reminder- I forgot it was on...I hope it just started! I missed Idol Gives Back last week too because I thought it came on an hour later than what it did. I enjoyed David C. last night too...I missed the first 2 singers last night. I was so disappointed to see Michael Johns go I was almost crying...well I cry at about anything these days!
