Are you ready for some filler? How about some specious boxing analogies? Let’s roll!
Jena and Caleb promise to rock us
And the first stupid medley of the night is over. Duet medleys are less fun than group sings, especially if both singers are reasonably good and the songs reasonably appropriate to their abilities.
Summary of internet polls:
Votefair: 67/33 in favor of Jena
Rickey.org: 50.7/49.3 in favor of Caleb
MJsBigBlog: 61.88/38.12 in favor of Jena
IdolAnalytics: 55/45 in favor of Jena
AmericanIdolnet.com: 52/48 in favor of Caleb
Idolbloglive: 51.5/48.5 in favor of Caleb.
It’s true that the polls with Caleb winning are usually by a closer margin than the ones with Jena winning, but I wouldn’t read too much into it. This is still a coin flip to me.
Sam Woolf doing Phillip Phillips. Yaaaaaaaaaaaaawn.
Phillip Phillips doing Phillip Phillips. Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaawn.
What is a Jennifer Nettles? Some kind of country star?
Her pants are very fancy.
Uhhh and they brought her in to do a duet of Wrecking Ball with Jessica Meuse? Ok then.
Why is this necessary?
I ship Haley and Casey. Stefano can suck it.
Think of the adorable curly-haired babies they would make?
I like Randy’s jacket a LOT
This JLo performance gave us plenty of time to call up and order Italian delivery
Kiss’s shoes are big shoes
Someone make a gif of that Harry white-man dance right now.
I take it from Harry’s comments in the media that he will not be back.
I am old as hell. I do not know what an Aloe Blocc is either.
Aloe is a name?
I don’t get the whole Demi Lovato thing either. Pardon me while I fetch my cane to brandish at kids today.
The Paramore chick also has big shoes. And obviously she’s been doing plenty of sit-ups.
John Legend turns to and smiles at the audience in a way that makes me think he’s got something wrong upstairs.
I wonder if Malaya will turn into Somebody
Judging by the girls around Seacrest, neon is in
How many Idol also-rans actually had a career?
Tamyra, Jennifer Hudson, Chris Daughtry, Elliott Yamin
Can’t think of too many others. These people probably aren’t going on to great things. Most end up like this, I think.
Ok, you have to admit the Richard Marx/Ryan Seacrest duet was funny.
Hootie! No blowfish though
I hate Lady Antebellum.
The combined range of these three singers is still smaller than Lindsay Buckingham all by himself.
True Colors was nice enough, but Go Your Own Way by the Idol judges is a bit of a trainwreck
About time to tie this off.
Mini Taylor Hicks wins.
Ah, this brings back fond memories of Taylor Hicks’s victory
I guess the old people win
Or the South. The South votes.
Didn’t have a strong feeling either way, but I do have a pretty strong feeling that Caleb probably cannot have a successful music career.
Speaking for just my plain opinion, this is a pretty low point in Idol history. It’s not a coincidence that they lost in the ratings to a The Voice clip show last night.
Much like Hicks, if we see Caleb singing at a Marco Rubio rally in 2016, not really going to be surprised.
Well that’s over with
