If you could have seen the confused and disgusted look on my face throughout Rihanna’s entire over-the-top performance last night! What the hell was that? I just checked out the song on YouTube and although it sounded better, the lyrics are still pathetic. All I could think was “Send Rihanna home!”
Jason Derulo? I never heard of him before last night. Snore. The song was not that exciting (see it on Zap2it), and his Michael Jackson wanna-be moves were lack luster. He had to play off a couple of missteps – one at the beginning and a big one at the end. He can go home, too.
The only guest performance that was worth watching was David Archuleta singing Imagine at the piano. There’s no need to go over the top and flashy to the point where it effects vocals. Well done David!
Drum roll for the results… Just when you think you have all of Ryan’s tricks figured out, he shocks us again. Pulling out the three girls was just mean! But relax; they were all safe. It does surprise me that only a third of the remaining contestants are girls when the judges swore this was a girl’s season. Hmmmmm.
Ryan then separated the guys into two groups of three. Lee, Casey, and Tim on the left – Mike, Aaron, and Andrew on the right. The left got to sit back down. The right moved to center stage, and Ryan told Aaron to sit back down. WHAT?! I think “Are you kidding me?!” is what I said out loud, which is nicer than what I said when he told Andrew we’d see him next week. I’ll spare you the details.
Big Mike sang This Woman’s Work to try and save himself, and I watched with tears welling up in my eyes. There are only two people I can think of that the judges would use their save on: Mike and Crystal. Final verdict: SAFE! So we will see Michael Lynche again, and hopefully not in the bottom anymore.
I can’t complain at all, though. Thus far, I have not been voting. My voting starts next week! It’s not like nine years ago when most people had limited text packages on their cell phones. The vast majority of us pay for unlimited texting now so VOTE! Don’t make excuses, just do it!
