The Retired List is Here!
Today I will start out with the Now card, stir things up a bit.
Speaking of stirring things up a bit, if you didn't watch Idol don't read anymore.
I'll show the full card first and then get on to American Idol.
I got a swap card from Debi Ryan and I really liked it, I tweaked it a bit for class. (Thanks Debi)

Ok, here we go to Idol…
I am wondering if the judges wished they had of saved their save for this week. I actually thought they would kick two people off this week cause of the save last week, but I think since that Gentle Giant guy was kicked off earlier cause of troubles with the law I think it allowed them not to have to do it and keep on schedule.
Kris Allen sang tonight, and I loved the shabby chic piano (Jeff even mentioned it) but thought it was weird that it was spinning so part of the time he was hidden behind the piano as he sang. He finally stood up and walked around.
They also had some horrible band on there LMFAO -QRSTUWXYZ or something like that, but it was like Sesame Street on drugs. People dressed up as zebras, and boxes on their heads, crazy hair and clothes, the song was horrible, and parts had to be bleeped out. I think that 7:00 is prime time so not sure this is appropriate. I still wonder who picks the entertainment, cause they need to be fired.
So Jimmy and the judges admitted that they have been picking the wrong songs for Jessica all this time, songs that are too old for her…have I not been saying boring for like…ever? Hello! It's down to the Top 7 and you just now figured this out. This also makes you realize that she needs to maybe get older where she knows what she wants to sing and can tell them (like Phillip does) that she will sing and dress how she wants.
So it came down to bottom three were Elise, Hollie & Colton. Elise was sent to the safe couch first (with another hug from Ryan…I swear there's something going on with those two), and then I thought it would be Hollie (although she did great last night), but surprise Colton goes home (last night was not his best night). I am not too worried though, this means his record will come out quicker…ha! But boy did you see Hollie, she was taking it hard, and so was Phillip. I think him and Colton were pretty good friends.
Who do you wish had of gone home?
Well this old gal is hitting the hay.
Have an awesome Friday and thanks for stopping in.

I love your blog post about Idol. I love that show. Who do I wish had gone home, Jessica or Joshua..I know I know, they are both incredible singers but neither one is my cup of tea. LMFAO is more my style….ha ha ha just kidding (had ya going huh) I love Colton and Philip. So sad to see Colton go home. Keep these blog post coming. I love to read them….you crack me up.

Oh my friend, I couldn't wait to read your post and just knew that we would agree on the Idol rundown! That LMFAO band was horrible and said the same thing, at that hour to have on a group that needs to be bleebed that many times!! I think Colton strayed too far from his Christian roots when he sang the Lady Gaga song. They were given a choice on that one and I think he could have found a Christian song to sing. By the way, the card is awesome!!!!

I love your American Idol recaps! I wish that Jessica had been sent home. She has a wonderful voice, but I don't think she is an entertainer. Hollie and Phillip are my favorites of the reamining contestants.

Love reading your AI comments. This is the first year I've watched, so it's all new to me. I think Jessica should have gone home last week and I hate the judges save, I mean I thought America voted for who they wanted. I loved Colton and agree he will get a record contract and thought he was very classy saying he understood why he was leaving. Jessica needs to go home, because I like the rest of them! Can't wait to see how it plays out. Looking forward to your reviews.
PS Love your cards, too!
I wish Hollie went home. I am disappointed that Colton got sent home. I always looked forward to what he was going to sing. He was so entertaining (just the hair color alone). I think Jessica is boring. She can sing good but I think she is another Kris Allen, good singer but very shy. Perhaps too shy for a stage. I like Skylar and Phillip squared but I think Phillip is more well liked and will win. OMG wasn't that band ridiculous? I could not believe they were on national television!!!
BTW your scrambled words for leaving a comment are hard. It always takes me several times before getting it right!
