Well Done Lisa
Lisa has been eliminated from American Idol. She did well and I am bummed for her. However, that does get me out of nine more weeks of Idol.
Here is what is baffling me: I suspected that Lisa would not win overall from the beginning, but I did think she would make it farther than #10. And I was sure Bucky would go before she did.
So they pulled out the bottom three last night and Bucky wasn’t even in the group, I was befuddled. He received more votes than at least three other people. I am trying hard to figure out how this happened. Bucky’s song the previous evening was unintelligible and boring, and his dancing makes me uncomfortable and embarrassed (though I don’t know if I am embarrassed for him or me). Kind of like when a friend is singing karaoke, and they are really bad and you know they are eventually coming back to your table and you have to make conversation…like nothing happened. I am sure he’s a decent dude, but in no way is he “the next American Idol.”
So who’s voting for him?
The South? I would think they would Pick Pickler. And voting for Bucky seems to be a poorly planned way to “rise again.”
Skynyrd fans? Are there really enough of them left (with working telephones) to make such a statement? (Just for the record, I had to look up how to spell “Skynyrd.” So many Ys!)
Country fans? Don’t they have their own idol thing going on right now? I vaguely remember seeing some commercial about the “Next Country Star” (or whatever it’s called) with special guest Dolly Parton! Who can really say; I see so few commercials the days since DVR. I could just have easily imagined it. (Also for the record, the only way I am watching that show is if the special guest star is Larry Fishburne and he’s reprising his cowboy character from Pee-Wee’s Playhouse.)
So now, my vote goes to Jay Leno or Mandisa. Maybe Elliott if he either knocks off the ghetto dancing, or conversely continues the ghetto dancing, but dons a “Flavor Flav clock” like hip hop accessory and makes it his “thing.” Maybe a jewel encrusted Sherlock Homes pipe? But I doubt I’ll be watching anymore, so just tell me who wins when it is over. But if Bucky wins, just tell me the show was cancelled.
I am going to mull over my bafflement some more whilst eating my breakfast – Cracklin’ Hatch Bran!
Don’t mind me. Just testing.
Lisa rocks. I’m going with Mandisa now.
Of course someone “unintelligible and boring” would get votes consider most of the country’s population is “unintelligible and boring.” People like things that are most like them. I love lamp.
