American Idol: So Long Lakisha!

Editor’s note: To all you AI addicts, sorry for the delay in posting this. But, my laptop died on me while on vacation in Vegas. Things are back up and running today, so those of you anxiously waiting for Becky and Bethany’s take on AI, here it is.

William Shakespeare said "brevity is the soul of wit". So, we are going to follow that advice and keep it short and sweet. Lakisha was sent home. So, our final three are Blake, Melinda, and Jordin, which we predicted.

Pink's performance was OK, but the wardrobe choice was horrible. Did she take a prison jump suit and turn it into a mini-dress? And she needs to do something with her hair. That's all there is to it.

The finalists’ tribute to Barry Gibb was terrible. We will steal Randy's line and just say that it was "pitchy."And speaking of Barry, poor fellow. The man tried, and he actually wasn't all that bad. Maybe he can't sing upbeat disco songs anymore. We know that he has written/sung more songs than just the disco genre, but we were looking forward to him breaking out the polyester! He was really looking his age, which is not a bad thing, but this is American Idol and the teenyboppers out there don't want to see their grandpa on stage.

Other than those tidbits, there is really not much to say, since the show was mostly filler and 10 minutes of actual content. We hope that the next two weeks bring more to the table.

We hate to admit it, but Idol has not held our attention this year. Hopefully, the semi-finals will thrill us and bring us back into the fold.

Until next week.
