Top 10 Becomes Top 9: American Idol (spoilers for west coast)

Tonight on American Idol's elimination show, Matt Giraud, Michael Sarver and Scott MacIntyre were in bottom three. Skip to the end of this post to see who was voted off. Pretend you don't see the picture here.

Rubin "the teddy bear" Studdard performed as part of the show's "bring back an idol" effort. What did he sing again? Boring. He should not have won American Idol.

Smokey Robinson
performed with Joss Stone singing, "You're the One for Me." I didn't like the harmony on the chorus.

But Stevie Wonder came out before Ryan Seacrest announced the elimination and did a medley of his Motown hits. You can't go wrong with Stevie, ever.

Again I'm sending readers to Elisa Camahort's recap of the performance show. I agree with her on Adam Lambert, btw. And when we don't agree, she still makes me laugh. Here are tidbits from that regarding the contestants that ended up in the bottom 3 and one who should have.

In her recap of Motown night, Elisa said she didn't buy Matt Giraud's performance of Marvin Gaye's "Let's Get it On." I probably wouldn't have been as hard. I think he did a better job of it than Justin Timberlake did when I saw him on some awards show last year.

Poor Matt, he keeps getting compared to Timberlake. I'm surprised that he was in the bottom three.

Elisa thought Michael Sarver's rendition of "Ain't to Proud to Beg" was boring, put her to sleep. I confess I didn't pay attention much because it was like Karaoke to me.

We agree on Megan Joy totally. Elisa writes of Megan:
OMG. OMG!!!! She is awful. Can't anyone please make it stop? She cannot actually sing. at. all.
Why is Megan is still on AI with an otherwise talented bunch of performers? Even though I didn't enjoy Scott last night at all and I don't think he can win, I was surprised that he was in the bottom three and not Megan, not to mention Matt was in the bottom and not Megan.

People keep saying Scott gets the pity vote. What's Megan getting, the gold hair with titties vote?

No, I'm not in a good mood tonight. Is it showing? My bad mood has nothing to do with AI though.

Michael Sarver went home.
No surprise there. His performance was pretty much the same as last night's, and no the judges did not vote to save him. I don't care how much they pretended to debate it, I doubt they ever considered keeping him really. Still, I wouldn't be surprised if Matt turned up singing country on somebody's label, and if you're a Sarver fan, you can see him on the American Idol tour.

I love your AI recaps...I look forward to them every week!

OK, again I'll say, I don't know what Adam needs with this show. I was totally blown away by this dude yet again. If he doesn't win, it is a travesty!

(why am I so into this yet again!? I'm setting myself up for disappointment...I feel it)

Why is Megan still there? She must be paying someone, or using something other than money to earn her keep...

I'm adding you to my regular blogroll, I love this spot!

I don't like the new format of the show. I agree on your recap for the most part. There's some strange hangers-on in there!

Simon and Paula should stop trying to attract so much attention to themselves over the contestants, seriously
