The very single David Cook.
Yes, ladies, David Cook is single. That’s one of the fascinating tidbits viewers picked up with tuning in to “American Idol’s” elimination show tonight. This season viewers can now call in on elimination nights to ask questions to the judges or contestants. Naturally, the questions are always of a serious nature and important to the betterment of our great country, like asking David Cook if he is single . Personally, I can sleep better at night knowing that the next day I may get a phone call from the very single David Cook asking me out on a date (a girl can dream, can’t she?)
Another caller asked Paula Abdul to describe her relationship to Simon Cowell using one of her songs–“Straight Up” was SImon’s choice, while Randy Jackson and Ryan Seacrest suggested “Cold-Hearted Snake”, Paula decided on “Opposites Attract” (making Simon the dancing cat in the video) and then informed Simon that she will never be “Forever Your Girl”. I’m sure he was crushed being as he’s engaged to a former model.
Let the poor girl buy back her horse!
The saddest question came from a view who asked Kristy Lee Cook if she was able to buy back her horse–the horse she sold so she could afford to chase her dream of becoming the next “American Idol”. Unfortunately, the man who bought Kristy’s horse seems unwilling to part with the animal. And then things got worse for Kristy, she was kicked off “American Idol”. But, wow, did she go out with a bang! Sitting practically in Simon’s lap, Kristy sassily sang her swan song. It was the most hilarious farewell performance I have ever seen on the show. I’ll miss her spunk.
Kristy was joined in the Bottom 3 by Syesha and BROOKE WHITE! Let me get this straight–Brooke is in the Bottom 3 while Carly Smithson can merrily skip off to safety. The Davids staged a sit-in during elimination refusing to go to safety (though Carly was happy to head to the couches and Jason Castro probably had no clue what was going on so we really can’t blame him for anything. I’m not even sure he realizes he’s on planet Earth).
I could end my post here, but then I’d miss out on telling you about Mariah Carey’s performance on tonight’s show. Wearing something that looked like a black bathing suit from the 1920’s she belted out her new song, “Bye Bye” (at least I think that’s what it was called). Mariah wasn’t the only fashion misfit on tonight’s show; Paula looked like she was growing a flower out of her neck. I know Fox is going green and all, but really.
Vote for Brooke!!!
The good news (besides David Cook being single) is that Brooke is safe for another week…but just barely. Sarah and I can’t continue to call 200 times every Tuesday night. You people have got to step up to the plate and ensure that Brooke stays a little longer–at least longer than Carly Smithson, Jason Castro, and maybe Syesha. I’m counting on all of you to keep Brooke in until the Final Four, maybe the Final Three. If you don’t do it for Brooke, then do it for me. And if you really care, get me a date. If you can’t decide between voting for Brooke or getting me a date, choose the latter because I haven’t been on a date in a really long time.
