AI results -- ie. how I did ....  
I'm sorry, but I'm patting myself on the back. I did GOOD!!!!! I wrote up 18 of the 24 finalists. !18 of 24!!! And I think that the only ones I didn't mention ... weren't shown before tonight. I am scary good at this.

Too bad it makes me no cold, hard cash.

Was it just me, or did they not show tons of people this year? For instance, not once did they show Jason Castro, other than in the crowd. He's known as being Cheyenne Kimball's boyfriend, and has a bit of a following... is that why?

What about the other people they never showed? It was quite weird this year in that respect.

Oh, no this is a regular pattern and drives me INSANE!!!! I understand wanting to not give it away, but they show sooooo many people in the endless rounds of auditions and by the time they edit these for air they KNOW who the final 24 are, so ALL of those 24 should be highlighted. Last year (or maybe the year before), a top 24 finalist who WASN'T highlighted actually commented on this ON THE SHOW, saying how she was trying to show America who she was, but it was hard when there were so many other contestants who'd already had that opportunity thanks to the show's editing. She wasn't bitchy or snotty about it, just matter-of-fact ... and yet the show STILL does this.

It REALLY gives an unfair advantage to those who did get screentime, as opposed to those who didn't. It's just wrong, wrong, wrong and you would think that after 6 seasons they would have figured it out. I mean, for goodness' sake, we saw Kelly interact WITH the judges (she switched places with Randy as a joke), but we never actually heard her sing until the semi-finals round and she won! That's just ridiculous. You'd think they would have learned after that ... in year one!!! But no dice.

I want to know what the hell happened to Samantha Musa (the Simon fangirl whose sister sat with the judges during her audition). She was my favorite out of all the auditioners and she wasn't even shown AT ALL during Hollywood week. That blows.

Brooke White FTW!

I know I liked her too. I wrote about her when she auditioned: Samantha Musa - AWESOME voice, I liked her personality too, really, really good voice. Presence, personality, vibrancy, soul and just fabulous. I like a lot!! She was a tad vibrato, but I think that was nerves. (She's so gonna have to fix that hair, though.).

Ah well.

Wow -- so, did you predict Josiah and Kyle wouldn't make it? Those two surprised me the most (especially Josiah...with all that airtime!!!)

I bow down to your superior Idol contestant predicting skillz. :D

No, I didn't predict who would make it, just which ones I thought had a shot or I liked. I totally expected Josiah to make it and I'm pissed he didn't, but oh well.
