American Idol Recap, The Top 13!

 

THIS is your Top THIRTEEN, America! (Said in Seacrest’s voice…)

Back row from l to r: James Durbin, Naima Adedapo, Jacob Lusk, Thia Megia, Karen Rodriguez, Stefano Langone, Lauren Alaina

Front row from l to r: Paul McDonald, Ashton Jones, Pia Toscano, Casey Abrams, Haley Reinhart, Scotty McCreery

After only a couple of weeks, we’re down to the Top 13 Contestants. Wait, isn’t it supposed to be 12? You’re so slick this season, Idol.

They are certainly the most interesting looking bunch. After Jennifer Lopez showed off her Poison Ivy-look, we got the first eliminations of the season. So they did this in pairs, which luckily speeded up the process. Robbie Rosen was the first cut, while 16-year old Scotty McCreery was the first to take a seat on that weird blue couch. “You have to be a country boy to sing Country music,” he exclaimed in the boys’ montage. I’m pretty sure you don’t, but that’s your 16-year old logic, so whatever.

Clint Jum Gamboa, Jordan Dorsey and Jovany Barreto didn’t make it either. I told you we would remember the group rounds guys! So let that be a lesson to future contestants, don’t be mean to little kids on national TV.

Lauren Alaina, Karen Rodriguez and Pia Toscano were the first ladies in.Well into 9 p.m., no big surprises. Can we talk about Thia Megia‘s Cosby kid sweater?  The makeovers need to start soon.

After the somewhat correct Top 10 had been formed, the Wild Card round started. Now, I think the judges got it right, save for Ashthon Jones. Her “yeah I got this” attitude and terrible weave are going to irk me all season. She actually messed up the title of the song she sang, it’s “AND I AM TELLING YOU(I’M NOT GOING)” and referred to it as Jennifer Hudson’s song. Girl, no.  She was obviously Randy’s pick, as he told her “I still love the attitude“.  I realized that after she and Ta-Tynisa Wilson had been cut at the beginning, that there weren’t going to be any black girls in the competition. And I would have been perfectly okay with that, had they not picked Ashthon.

Stefano Langone was chosen next and he was well aware that he was “singing for his life*.” His rendition of Smokie Norful’s “I Need You Now” was so good, why didn’t he sing that before?! He would have been a sure thing if he had. I thought it was weird that the judges were giving them all short, vague critiques but I guess they didn’t want to get their hopes up. Kendra Chantelle sang “Georgia (On My Mind)” and nailed it. Once again, if she had sung this way before, she definitely would have been picked over that grunting cat Hailey Reinhart. No surprise that Jennifer chose Jovany to come back and sing, he was her favorite, but trying to pull a Karen by singing “Angel” in Spanish and English didn’t cut it.

Naima Adedapo also got a second chance. Although I do like her, I have to agree that she doesn’t really fit with what American Idol is looking for, but she’ll do well in the competition. Robbie Rosen picked “Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word” by Elton John. It was good, but not good enough.

While the judges deliberated for exactly 4 minutes,we were treated to J.Lo’s new video for her single “On The Floor“.  It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t that great either. She still has the abs and the butt that made her famous.

So finally, Naima, Ashthon and Stefano were added to the group. It was cute to see who, I assume, was Naima’s husband celebrating in the audience. The real competition begins next week. I can’t wait to see those weird Ford commercials they’re going to make them do.

It’s going to be a long season.

[Editor’s Note:  Is RuPaul going to sue American Idol for sort of stealing the “Lipsynch for your LIFE” (and don’t f*ck it up) catchphrase?  I think it’s close enough and I certainly think of RuPaul’s Drag Race every single time Ryan says, “Sing for your LIFE”.  Just wonderin’, y’all. ~ Julia]

RuPaul’s Drag Race, Season 3 on LOGO – I’m callin’ it now: MARIAH from the ATL!

"Lipsynch for your LIFE...and don't f*ck it UP."

I. Can’t. WAIT.  RuPaul’s Drag Race, Season 3 is set to start in January, 2011–and it can’t come soon enough for me.  I’ve watched all of the girls’ pre-taped interviews, and gurrrl, let me tell you, one Diva stood OUT: MARIAH.  Look at those Michelle Obama cheekbones.  This bitch is gor-jus up in here.

And honey? You already got MY vote. Unf.

Speaking of RuPaul, I saw this photo on the best celebrity blog out there, dlisted a couple weeks ago, and nearly fell outta  my Sleep Number Bed (I’m a number 20, bitches!) fine leather executive chair while seated at my mahogany desk because it’s so funny and awesome…

Funny stuff…especially Dave.

**UPDATE**  TYRA SANCHEZ…Shante, she stayed. What a fantastic night of gorgeous dolls.  I loved the bitch-slappy reunion show!  Tatianna finally let her inner bitch OUT and laid into those bitches who kept calling her “GORGEOUS” (the nerve!).   And no, my JuJuBee didn’t win, but her final outfit did not wow anyone–including me.  RAVEN looked effing amazing in her black ensemble, and no one can rock a short wig like her.  But alas, Raven too, had to sashay, away.
