 Oprah's Big Give: And The Winner Is ... 4/21/2008 

Was it fair? No. Was it American Idol? Oh yes.

Carly Smithson's long goodbye Wednesday night on Idol came like the scene in Phantom of the Opera when the chandelier comes crashing to the floor (or was that Poseidon Adventure? I get them confused.). The tattoo-addict certainly did not deserve to go home based on the quality of her Tuesday night performance, but I guess in the world of Idol, her Irish jig was up. And so it goes.

Brooke and Jason had their bags all packed, for no reason, it turned out, and Syesha and Carly had a big surprise landing in the bottom two. Perhaps next week, Brooke will throw up on Neil Diamond's shoes, and America will simply smile, shake its collective head, and vote like maniacs for her. As for Jason, I'm as guilty as the rest of you; I voted for him a lot. In Idol's world, it's all good.

********

Cool! Tuesday night’s American Idol mentor is David Gest!

Wait. What? No, right, it’s Andrew Lloyd Webber. A tiny British man in high-waisted pants who composed not only many of the greatest musicals in theater history, but who wrote almost all of them for girls to sing! With their eyes open!

And so, with six finalists left, American Idol got the weirdest I believe it ever has  in its entire wacked-out history, so weird that Syesha and Ricky Minor channeled the Fabulous Baker Boys, Brooke finalized her psychotic break, Little David broke the record for longest, slowest eye blinks, David Cook and Carly Smithson had the whole world in their hands and my dearly beloved Jason Castro sealed his fate.

Good heavens. Since Webber was in the house, let’s go with a theatrical theme:

Act I, Scene 1: Syesha chooses One Rock and Roll Too Many from Starlight Express (the roller skating musical), and she watched Renee Zellweger and Catherine Zeta-Jones in Chicago 1,000 times to prepare. She look GORGEOUS, the best she ever has, and she sounds terrific. Her LOL King Webber moment is when she shows him her animated self versus her unanimated self: The difference is a raised eyebrow.

Act I, Scene 2: I am giving David Cook and Carly Smithson co-starring roles in this scene, since they were both great. Carly’s LOL Sir Webber moment was when she started to mumble her way through All I Ask of You from Phantom of the Opera, and Andy hefted up his trousers and kicked her butt all over the stage. Are you crazy? he said. Sing Jesus Christ Superstar. So she did, in an odd dress, and it was great and she looked so happy at the end that I was happy for her.

David Cook is allowed to keep his choice from Phantom, Music of the Night, and his LOL moment with Earl Webber is when Webber falls deeply in love with our bedheaded rocker, and forces DC at gunpoint to pretend that Webber is a 17-year-old ingénue. David does a very beautiful job with this song.

Act II: David Archuleta chooses Think of Me from, guess what!, Phantom, and puts his pop ballad spin on it, and frankly turns it into a cut off The Best of Bread album, and halfway through the performance I begin to think that I should not have had that second piece of pie. Yes, it was apple, yes, it was delicious, yes, it is mother’s recipe with the homemade crust, but … oh wait, he’s still singing. Little David’s LOL moment with Knight Webber is when the composer screams “Open your bloody eyes!” at him and scars the poor boy for life.

Act III: The only thing worse than Brooke White forgetting the lyrics to You Must Love Me from Evita (the movie) is Paula criticizing her for not fudging the words and soldiering on (Paula to Brooke: “You should have just gone ‘Where do we go from here? This isn’t where we intended to be. Hot fudge sauce is good …’ ”). The second her mind blanked the poor thing was completely sunk, and she never recovered. To her credit, she did not pass out or cry. And for the record, Madonna did it way better.

And the only thing even worse than all that was my sweet Jason Castro and his horrible decision to sing Memory, from Cats. When they said that, I said, out loud, “Oh no.” His Honor Webber had the same reaction, going from incredulous to befuddled during their session. He wobbled and wavered and at one point I think he actually bleated during the performance.

Oh Jason. I do believe it will be curtains for you.

Hey, the girl/boy/girl/boy thing went out the window. But unless my memory is failing, Carly wasn't in the bottom three last week! Which means my other theory still holds!!!

Last week was Kristy, Syesha and Brooke, right? So I will continue to cite you as my source. On the other hand, that means Jason will go home next week, and you know I'm not letting that happen. Or a week 5 shocker like David Cook. Or Archuleta. Could happen. Neil Diamond.

Jess, I think Carly's comment referred to her having messed up the words a bit in Superstar on competition night. She sang, "Jesus Christ, Superstar! Who are you,what have you sacrificed?" when it should have been "Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ ..." at the beginning of the song. No one picked up on it, or at least the judges didn't make note of it publicly. But, then again, she kept singing and perhaps made everyone believe her song! Better than Brooke.

I really needed some your wine E when Brooke didn't go last night. Bad night for me. But the good news that Ugly Betty and McDreamy are on tonight. And I'm also excited about next week's Neil Diamond. You should do a blog with people guessing which songs these folks will sing. And who will do the talk-sing thing that Neil does so well. And will anyone wear tight pants with sequins or tassles. What fun.

Did anyone else hear Carly's remark? Something along the lines of "and I remembered all the words?" I wasn't sure if it was a snide remark for Brooke (who, I do think should have gone home, even though I like her) or maybe I watch way too much reality television and wanted a big scandal!

Ya, I'd say that wasn't quite fair. I'm with Randy on this one, too much popularity contest in last nights results. I have to admit though, at this point after all the hype about this being the most talented group ever, I think this has been a lackluster top 10. I'm no huge fan of Neil Diamond so I'm not looking forward to next week. If it ends up a David vs David finale, I probably won't even watch. How long until So You Think You Can Dance starts?? :)

I think last night proved that this is the biggest popularity contest since high school yearbook superlatives! The judges always say it is a "singing contest" but obviously it isn't to many people who vote. That being said, I think Carly's voice was hit ir miss and even a bit screechy throughout the competition so I am not disappointed to see her go. I think people vote for Brooke as though they were voting for their grandmother. She is very sweet and not phony. I think the top two will be the two Davids because I think they are the best musicians in the contest. I just hope the voting public end up realizing this.

Come on folks. We all know AI is a popularity contest. Jason and Brooke should have been gone weeks ago, but the little girls will pile on the votes for Jason because they think he is cute and Brooke will get votes simply because she is pretty. No musical talent is necessary anymore on the show.

Should have been Brooke or Jason. Brooke is starting to annoy me. Well, it breaks up the boy/girl/boy vote out. When do they start singing two songs each? Simon's find, Leona(?) She was very good. Thought Carly and Syesha sounded great again last night. I prefer them singing before they know who gets voted out. Does Andy know he made the newspaper this week? Congrats! Looking forward to next week.

Speaking of KISS Kim, did y'all notice PAUL STANLEY was in the audience last night!!! They showed him just after Simon finished with David A. Rock On!! Paul has evidentally played the Phantom in a production of POTO in Toronto.

I agree totally the theme weeks need to end and give them more songs and styles to choose from, for example the week I enjoyed the most was when they had to choose a song from the year they were born. It makes it easier than making those poor guys sing songs from Mariah Carey and Dolly Pardon! What's next having Gene Simmons coach them and have them all sing KISS tunes?

Simon's analogy for Jason - that he sounded like a kid forced to sing a song at a wedding that he didn't want to sing was perfect - for American Idol. That is what they do week after week with the "themes". And every year we hear the same thing from the judges when a contestant sings in a theme that does not suit them. And we get the Kristy Lee Cook who hangs on longer than she should because she was blessed with country week in an earlier round and Sayesha who should hang in there this week because she was given a Broadway blessing. So Jason or Brooke may go this week even though they are much more likely "pop" stars and Sayesha who is fantastic for Broadway should head straight to New York when she gets the boot next week. David A. "pop -ed" Think of Me and as a Broadway purist I could not stand it, Sir Andrew looked rather appalled as well. David Cook was extraordinary. Brooke was right to start over and Paula was even more incoherent than usual - if that is possible. Sartorially-challenged Carly sang well but performed better which was nice to see. I think Top 3: David, David and Carly.

As a huge fan of musicals, I was very disappointed in song choice. ALW is a VERY prolific composer and why they couldn't come up with songs other than from Phantom is beyond me. So, kudos to Brooke and Syesha for daring to be different, although I was really hoping Brooke would sing "I Don't Know How to Love Him," which I guess would have been predictable. Jason is begging to be sent home with that absolutely abysmal rendition of "Memory." And did he really say he didn't know it was sung by a cat?! Hello! The show is called "CATS"! Carly was good, as was David C, but again, their song choices were too predictable. Jason should be going home this week.

Come on guys you should know by now that it isn't the bottom person that will go home. It is set up so its boy - girl each week, so its the bottom of that sex that will go home. This week its the boys turn, my bet is on Jason. Although it should be Dave A, he needs to grow up a few years first. Although...if they are not getting enough phone calls and making enough money off those calls they will pull a big shocker and it will be Dave A.

Everyone, give Jason a break on not knowing the background on CATS. The show came out before he was even born. What young person is going to know this stuff? Not anyone that I would want to hang out with anyway. Despite his subpar performance, I think his fan base will pull him through this week. If not, I no longer become a slave to the TV on Tuesday and Wednesday nights. He's the only reason I watch

David Cook stole the show as usual, he is very talented. Brooke who needed to go home weeks ago needs to go now, how can you forget the words when its down to the last few weeks? As much as I dis-like Carly, she actually did a great job last night. I think the last two standing will be David vs. David.

Okay so Brook really was as bad as she's been but I have to give her credit for stopping and restarting. The worst part of it all was the judges rambling on about whether she did the correct thing and the poor thing had to keep standing there WITHOUT CRYING. Awful.Jason Castro might pull through if his girly fans voted enough, especially since he admitted from the get go that this wasn't going to be his best night.When Syesha finished I looked at dh and said, "Finally this girl has found her strength - she could be a Broadway star." (No, I wasn't the guest judge last night.)I still think we'll end up the battle of the Davids in the end - as long as David A. doesn't listen to Sir Webber and stops trying to keep his eyes open.

Mornin! Last night went better than I expected. David C, Syesha, Carly set themselves apart. David C, wow, the vocal control needed to pull that song off is incredible, great job!! Brooke after the restart was pretty good. It's a song of desperation, and whether she intended it to be or she was truly desperate by that point she hit on that emotion. Sorry David A fans, he did nothing me. Hit the right notes but musicaly was very boring. Jason, this could have been big for him, but he just couldn't do it. I think Jason goes home. Hey, did anybody else notice just after Simon finished his critique of David A there was a shot of a guy in the crowd with black hair and a dark shirt on, is it me or was that Paul Stanley??!??!

It thought it odd that they had Broadway night, but it showed if you can sing you can sing and if you can't you can't. I think its Brooke's turn to go home this week. Instead of becoming stronger and more confident she looks petrfied up there on stage. Jason should be safe due to his fan base but his time might be up too. David Cook was wonderful and really showcased his vocals in a heart felt way. I enjoyed Syesha's preformance as she really put on a show. That said I hope they don't bring this theme back next year. It doesn't showcase the direction the winner should go in.

I love Wednesdays, because I get to spend the morning (when I should be working) reading the low-down on last night's Idol. I gotta say, your theatrical run-down this morning is one of the most amusing I've ever read. I LOL'ed at your LOL moments, especially the Carly one. Thanks. Great stuff. Oh, and of course, GO DAVID COOK!!

I think I am the only one that may have liked Jason performance last night, it was not my favorite of his or of the evening, but I thought it was sweet and tender the way he sang it. Guess I am all alone in that. But after the night was done I too feel he will probably be the one going home and it does keep with our boy/girl/boy theme. Loved David Cook, except I wasn't crazy about how he ended it, did anyone else feel the same? And I have to say making David A sit through a bunch of 9 year old girls coming up to hug on him was just torture. For me to watch and for him to sit through.

Favorite moment? When Jason claimed he had no idea a cat was singing the song. Best Pot-calling-the-Kettle moment? Paula criticizing Brooke for incoherence. American Idol moment? David Cook proving yet again that he can do anything.

Syesha rocked last night, as did Carly. Those two, and Cook, are the top three in my book. Good riddance to the rest of them. But, tonight, I think you're right. As bad as Brooke goofed, Jason has to go. Dreadlocks = Dreadful.

Top Six!Sir Andrew was completely befuddled by Jason, but I don't think it was because of his song choice as much as because he's Jason! Still, in spite of his song choice, I predict that Jason will stay in another week, and very possibly to the top 3 (behind the two Davids). His fan base will support him that far.Carly - she exclaimed to Sir Andrew that she had "the perfect dress to wear too!" when she flamboozled him into supporting her Superstar song. She definitely seemed to have a good time in her paisley frock, but neither the song nor her dress were worth remembering.David A. listens to way too much Stevie Wonder. I expect he could turn the Star Spangled Banner in to a Wonder song. No variety from the boy. I could say the same thing (no variety) about Jason, but it seems to work for Jason. He knows who he is. David A. doesn't seem to have a clue. Brooke - it's time to go home and look at your sister's wedding pictures. That said, Brooke is going to be our next Carole King. I don't know if she has the song writing chops, but she can channel Carole King and her style.Syesha stole the show and did what she does best. She will be a big star on Broadway one day (soon) and I can't wait to see her. Still, her AI days are numbered. She'll go before Jason does.That leaves David C. Which is what will happen at the end. It will be David C. and David A. And, if David C. is lucky - David A. will win, so David C. can go off and record an album that will be a huge success leaving David A. wondering what happened when the confetti finished falling.

Another painful week on AI. I've loved Jason Castro all along but I didn't even stay in the room to watch him last night. I knew what the outcome was going to be and I was right. Brooke was a disaster. Either Jason or Brooke will be going home tonight. I haven't always liked Syesha but I have to give the night to her - she was definitely in her element. David Cook singing show tunes was a little too weird and yes, the whole David trying to pretend Lord Weber was a 17 year old girl was hilarious. Kudos to David for stating that he thought 17 was a bit too young for him. David A. was just "ok." Typical performance for him. I think last night was probably Carly's best performance - great song for her but I do agree with Simon - she gets very "shouty" when she hits the big notes. Sigh - althuogh Brooke definitely is in danger I have to think that Jason will be leaving us......

I really do wonder who picks the songs they sing, poor David A, he is starting to sound the same, the same, the same...Not sure any of them were the "Bomb" Syesha did the best I think. Again, how many times can Brooke hit the wall???

The two David's are safe. Jason has the teeny bopper fan base. I think he stays and one of the girls goes.

I think Jason will survive one more week - I believe it is curtains for Brooke.

I'll admit Jason's performance was sub-par but at least he did not forget the words and have to start all over. I think , he'll without a doubt be in the bottom three, but unless Brooke fans vote like crazy out of sympathy, she's gone.
