Spoiler Alert...Below are the results and some thoughts on this week's episodes of American Idol. So before reading any further, watch the eps, audition for next year's American Idol for the sole purpose of meeting Nick Jonas, then read what I have to say.
I don't have time to analyze how boring American Idol has gotten for me. It has gotten to the point where I'm not even taking notes on each contestant! I look forward to seeing Paul McDonald each week, but that's about it. His ridiculously unique voice, and unusual style up on stage, make me want to illegally download his first album as soon as it's released.
Casey was good again this week, but not nearly as good as he's been in the past. The same can be said for Durbin. Lauren Alaina finally stepped up to the plate, and Pia lived up to her usual quality, but again, didn't excite me. Everyone is talking about how fantastic Stefano was this week, but if that performance is one we're raving about, this show has gone extremely down hill.
The bottom three was absolutely on the nose this week, and I think the right person went home for the second straight week. Karen was both off key and boring this week, and going into Spanish for the second time in three weeks (third time if you count her redo of Hero during the save attempt), really made me say it was time to give her the axe. Speaking of the save, they said it was NOT unanimous! That means that Jenny From the Block was willing to save this girl from elimination this early in the competition because she sang in Spanish and did a Selena tune. You are absolutely crazy JLo!
