American Commercial.

Man, the opening song always kills me, when they have to prance around and try to fit their voices together. It’s like a horrible high school musical. They can’t harmonize (what is up with that?!). And Simon always uses the “it sounds like a bad high school musical” line as a diss so it’s strange to me that they start the shows out like this, but I guess it’s not his show (as much as he would like to think it is). First of all, America, you got it dead wrong by putting Carly Smithson in the bottom three. But as you would know if you read my post last night, that was my favorite performance, so I guess I’m biased. But it would be hard to deny that woman’s talent. And to keep Ramiele in the top ten, above Miss Carly, that just goes to show that it is a popularity contest and based on cutsie looks. I was feeling for Michael Johns, when Ryan asked if he thought it was a good song choice (“A Day in the Life”) he replied, “Absolutely” and I really felt for him. He had mentioned that he sang the song as a dedication to a friend that had passed and you could see that it was sincere. Something about tonight’s show felt a little bit too much like an extended commercial. First the huge bit with the Ford Car commercial, then the whole answering peoples terrible questions on air. Come on people, come up with some better questions, atleast ones that will require more than a one word response. Though the Africa bit was commercial-ish I still found it to be heart warming and I even teared up a bit. Good job, you suceded with the tear-jerking.  Agh and then there was the whole Kelly Pickler mess. That girl is dumber than a stinkin’ door knob, seriously! Did anyone see her on “Are you Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?” She actually thought that Europe was a country!!!! Someone that dumb should not be allowed such great success, not to mention I just wasn’t a fan of her singing. And lastly, I’m just really sad to see Amanda Overmyer go. She made it further than I thought she would. Though I felt it wasn’t her worst song choice I wasn’t too surprised.  You had a good run lady, and I would definitely buy a ticket to one of your shows. I disagree with anyone who thinks she was being pompous by saying anything about playing shows because we all know that she will be selling them out for atleast the next year. Girl, you are a beautiful powerhouse and are much appreciated by this one.  Til next week, I’ll be dreaming of Idols in Ford Cars being asked annoying questions via satellite during an alien invasion.
