It was good to see the judges apologize to Kat tonite after they ripped her to pieces last nite. I guess they went back, rewatched the episode, and realized that, yes, she really DID do a great job!! Now if only someone would've commented on her little wardrobe malfunction... One little button popping from her dress about crotch level, with people POSSIBLY getting a sneak peek, and they had to go and be proper about it and not comment. Bummer. C'mon people - this is entertainment!! ;-)
Another interesting event last nite - Elliot bringing Paula to tears. Or maybe it was pain killers or alcohol or hormones. Who knows, but she was a little more realistic/harsh with her reviews of their performances, and she was also more emotional than her usual self. I have to wonder if they don't get a little worn down from getting attached to these kids and then losing one a week... Brett and I really want Elliot. Brett also wants Taylor, so I guess that means Elliot's meant to be mine! Peter ALSO wants Elliot and Taylor, but Peter's not exactly a loyal watcher of show, so I guess that means he gets the leftovers! ;-) (Note: Peter's also not doing a good job of updating his blog, so that's another reason I deserve Elliot more than Peter!) :)
And last, but definitely not least, I still have to say I miss Ayla. I didn't think I would like her at first - she seemed too jock girl. But she could sing REALLY well, and she crossed over well into non-jock-girl-land as she was learning all about the wonderful world of getting stylized. (I don't know if they have stylists before they get to the Top 12 stage, or if the girls just do each other's make up?) Whatever the case...Ayla really made amazing improvements in her talent in her short time on the show. And instead she was the last person to get voted off before the Top 12. Melissa, who got that spot, got voted off the very next week. I think that was a voting mistake (no, I didn't vote). I think if Ayla made it into the Top 12, she could've been around a little longer. Oh well - hopefully we'll see her around again. Hello, 16 yr old Lisa is apparently going to be on the OC tomorrow nite. How'd they pull that off!?!? She's only been off AI like 3 weeks?
Speculations on who gets voted off next week? I'd like to see Paris go. As amazingly powerful as her voice is, and as cute as she can SOMETIMES look, I just don't like her. I don't know if it's her lack of enunciation, or how she seems to have very few moves, or her annoying little "thenk yew". Whatever it is...it's her time. Kat's been in the bottom votes a few times I think. Ditto for Elliot? I hope they're not next! I also don't want to see Taylor go. Chris is smolderingly sexy, but I don't think he deserves the top position - too much of his stuff sounds the same. Taylor's got an amazingly fun quirkiness and I can totally see someone different like him winning this. (Hello - COUNTRY won last year - that was a surprise!) I don't want to see Kat or Elliot go tho - I think they're my favorites, with Taylor RIGHT behind them.
I feel like I'm forgetting someone. Hm.
