American Idol thoughts ...

I can see the point of Miley considering her ridiculous success (although, her mentoring made more sense when the theme was teen idols), but ... meh. She pretty much offered nothing.

Only commenting on a few performances

- Paige ... Way to take my favorite song and ruin it. Ugh.

- Tim ... I don't care, I love him. Period. He was easily my second favorite performance of the night. I. Don't. Care.

- Crystal ... And she would be first. No one comes close, even with half of her song not even being lyrics, she was still amazing. And it was obvious how she energized the heck outta that crowd. Also, I think she's adorable. Her thing to Kara about repeating what she said to Ellen was just so dang cute. And sitting on the pretty rug? Hah, she's adorable. LOVE HER. Even if that song was insanely predictable. I can not wait to see her out of her wheelhouse. I really do think she'll be amazing.

- Casey ... I love Ellen, but telling him he had the best vocals after Crystal had sung? Like that? Hell to the no. Still, I liked him. Lots. Still don't love his voice, but I like it well enough, and I love his attitude, hair and eyes.

- Didi ... She disappointed tonight. Ah well.

- Siobhan ... The judges were on crack, that was a DISASTER. Period.

I normally like Didi, but I can't even give her ok, other than that I completely agree.

(Love Troy and Britta!, not as much as Annie and Jeff, but they are still awesome.)

Why did practically all the contestants choose songs that other Idols had sung before (and in most cases, better) Crystal was a breath of fresh air, by comparison (I'm looking at you, Paige - that's my favorite song, too!! And what she did to it was just...cruel. :x )

I know you saw the potential in Jordin, and were one of the few I knew who predicted Melinda's demise, so I defer to your expertise: we're not seeing Melinda/Jordin 2.0 with Crystal/Katie, right? :/

Aww, AAO is your favorite song too? AWESOME!!!

Katie is NO Jordin. At all. Not even close. No way, no how, no. Just no. Paige, Andrew, possibly Tim (sniff, sniff), Lee and Didi will go before Katie, but I don't see her lasting beyond that. With regards to Crystal and Melinda, the difference is that Melinda was great, but kinda boring. Crystal is charismatic and energizing. I think she's gonna make it. I think so.

Hee, so by that logic, Katie is more like Paris Bennett in S5. :p I can live with that. :)

And I must qualify: AAO is my favorite, but ONLY the Phil Collins version. The angsty, emotive version. Not the overblown (IMHO) diva Mariah version. ;p

(I had that song played at my wedding -- weird choice, I know, but my husband and I both love the angst! :p )

Yup, Paris Bennett. (But Paris was better).

Huh? What is this travesty you speak of? Nope. Only one version of AAO and that would be Mr. Collins'.

I have to say, I've never watched AI regularly before--ever. But I'm tuning in to watch Crystal--love her style and her voice... The rest of the singers ranged from mediocre to disasters.

Pretty much, yeah. That sums up tonight.

Have to add--it's not that I don't like the show... I just get squeamish for the contestants that aren't that good--I hate watching people who really are trying their best get raked over the coals...

... of course, the irony is I think I just raked them over the coals! Just not in front of 60 billion people.
