American Idol, it's the boys!  
Thank goodness for Casey James and Andrew Garcia! They saved an utterly awful night for me otherwise. I disagreed with the singers they complimented (especially Aaron Kelly -- who was DREADFUL!), thought that Tim Urban had a better voice than they said (bad song choice) and totally disagreed with their thoughts on Andrew. I was a little disappointed with Andrew at first, but by the mid-way point, I was grinning and clapping by the end.

So yeah, after tonight, Andrew and Casey remain my favorite boys!

And Jermaine? No, just no. THIS is how you perform "Get Here."

Or this ...

Or this ...

One non-cut thought: Ellen is doing fantastic!

Season one is really what it's all about.

And how dare Todrick even think of touching SUBG. That is a recipe for disaster.

What are you speaking of?! I heard no such monstrosity. If I had, surely it would have been completely blocked from my memory by now.

Season one is really what it's all about.

Although, I still can't agree with this, as much as I adore my Justin and Kelly. I like Diana (s3), Jordin (s6) and David (s7), and I LOVE Brooke (s7) and Kris S8).

I was disappointed in Jermaine's song choice, too -- and he did shriek it in the middle, yikes.

I now have a soft spot for Joe Munoz, because I haven't heard "You and I Both" in years, and I forgot how much I love it. :D

I wish Casey James would've gotten an actual critique rather than Kara's "look at me! look at me!" attention-getting antics overshadowing it, but oh well...

Oh, I don't think it was Kara (and I actually think that much of her so-called "fame-whoring" is stuff like this). The others all did that, the package on him built up the Kara stuff, the other judges pulled away from her and kept pimping it up. Kara was the one trying to be serious, and was the one who got the ball rolling on that. But it was the judges, Ryan and the producers who really pushed that train.

Poor Kara, I really do like her and I think she actually has some smart advice to offer, but she's just become the whipping dog. Even when it's not her fault.

When you say that, I can see how she was sort of in a no-win situation: if she pushes back (especially to Randy), she looks like a bitch, but if she goes with it, then she looks like she's mugging for attention.

I just felt bad for Casey James, because IMHO, it clearly made him uncomfortable, and then poor Kara mentioned her husband and I almost had to cover my eyes, because the second-and-third-hand embarrassment was just too much... :/

I think she mentioned her husband (and that she loved him), because she was TRYING to get out of it. The others were really putting her in a tough spot. She backs off from it, and it looks like she's insulting Casey, and not playing along thus a "bitch." She goes along with it and tries to back down a bit (as she did) and others accuse her of mugging. (You're not the only one.) I just feel bad for her in that there's a lot of unreasonable hate against her and a good portion of it actually isn't her fault.
