'American Idol': Who's Dunzo?

Tuesday's R&B/Soul challenge exposed the limitations of a few unsuspecting "American Idols." But who got nixed? Read on ....


Didi Benami

momlogic's Vivian: Each Wednesday night's "American Idol" show has become the most overt product-placement endeavor I've ever witnessed. In FOX's efforts to pimp the new film "Clash of the Titans," images of Idols and judges were spliced and diced with action footage from the film, and displayed with headlines like, "Between men and Gods, Idols and judges." Oh. Dear. LAWD. The idea probably worked well on a storyboard, but the end result went a little too far. SUCH tack-ola.

Once we got through the commercial portion of the program, former "Idol" victor (and nouveau Barry White) Ruben Studdard took the stage, giving a fair-to-middlin' performance off his new album. A bit of foreshadowing that points to a Big Mike Lynche victory, perhaps? Or sheer fluke?

During the small talk that preceded the results, our GURL, mommy Crystal Bowersox, said that she has been playing piano since she was 6, then switched to guitar because "it was easier to carry around." Andrew Garcia's feisty mom was called upon for her commentary once again, and as any mom would, she took the opportunity to cheer her son on out loud. "He should just be himself," she said. "Because his mama raised him right!"

Now for the results: Our girl MamaSox and Big Mike earned the expected kudos and safety. Lee DeWyze was praised for his standout performance, and Andrew was declared to be "back in the zone." Casey James admitted that he could "do more" on stage, but was safe. Even though Aaron Kelly was likened to "a cupcake" in comparison to Lee's "dinner," he escaped the bottom three. And in spite of a seriously "off night," Siobhan Magnus also managed to escape the bottom three -- but Katie Stevens wasn't so lucky. It was she, "Teflon" Tim Urban and teary Didi Benami who comprised the bottom three.

Katie and Tim were sent back to safety, leaving Didi to reprise her rendition of "Rhiannon" -- but it wasn't enough for the judges to exercise their single save, and she was sent packing.

What will MamaSox do to keep us on our toes next week? Will next week's McCartney/Lennon theme throw Big Daddy Mike, or will he continue to kick a**?

Tune in to "American Idol" on FOX next Tuesday, and then come right back here for the recap!

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You clearly know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog when you could be giving us something informative to read?

Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the internet the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get irked while people think about worries that they plainly don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
