Michael Johns Goes Home...

Did anyone see who got eliminated from American Idol last week? Michael Johns??? Have they flipped??? I was over to Lisa Jackson's blog a few minutes ago and even she was talking about it even though she tries to keep her blog book-oriented, but this is something you just can't hold back.

That guy had star potential. And I'm pissed.

But, you know, did you see him lean over to Randy, Paula and Simon and they were whispering something into his ear? Do you think...yeah, I'm hoping that, too. My daughter says that Randy has connections and I'm sure Paula does and I think Simon does, too. So, there you go.

But, still. Look, here's the way it was shaping up for me...

When the first week started, David Archuleta just blew my socks off. I kept with him for a couple weeks, then there was something about Jason Castro that really touched me. No, he's not the best vocally I think and I do believe that's because he's so soft-spoken when he sings, but he is really a truly truly charismatic and gifted singer. But, hell, they're all great and I do believe, and it's been quoted by other people, that this year had the most talented performers I've seen since I started watching the show religiously three years ago.

But in the last couple of weeks, Michael Johns...there was just something about him. He had the look, he had a fantastic voice and he had great stage presence. I know he could go far. And I believe he will.
So, looks like my favorite right now is Jason Castro. Last week, he sang a wonderful rendition of Over the Rainbow...




Now, you tell me...is this an American Idol, or what?

  1. I have a deep dark secret. I've never seen American Idol. No, never, not even once. they will probably boot me out of the US for that.

    I like to think I make up for it with all the other reality shows I am addicted to. My kids the next star, Housewives of NYC, Millionaire matchmaker, Deadliest Catch, Dog groomers, Flavor of love 2, Next great chef, Rock of love, etc, etc, etc. Being a TV junkie is a tough job and I do it well...except for the American Idol part.

  2. I watch a lot of reality shows but AI isn't one of them. Maybe because I tried too early in the show with too much bad stuff.

    As far as talented people getting booted off, Kathie Lee said that once you're in the top 10, you're gonna make it in show business. And sometimes it's best NOT to be #1 - that those who finished earlier actually did better.

    I don't know what I'm talking about since I don't watch it, but it sounded good. :)

  3. I don't watch that show either but doesn't he kind of remind you of Tiny Tim? Younger, smaller, but his performance was somewhat similar on that clip.
