Haha! I wrote this last night and instead of publishing it just saved it in my drafts!
She looks so cute with that guitar, even though her rendition of “Daydream Believer” was kind of off.
I yelled, “No!”, threw my notebook in the general direction of the television set, and buried my face into a pillow. Yes, folks, that was my reaction to the horribleness that occured on “American Idol’s” elimination show this evening…and it wasn’t just because of the medley of Neil Diamond songs the Top 5 butchered at the start of the show.
Send this kid home already!
It was bound to happen–Brooke White got voted off this evening. I was genuinely surprised that Jason Castro who was absolutely horrendous the past two weeks didn’t make it into the Bottom 2. I understand that some misguided teen girls probably used up all their cell phone minutes voting for the kid, but seriously, what is going on? Then again, during one of the breaks there was a commercial advertising the new movie Baby Mama as the #1 movie in America–no wonder Castro is in the Top 3.
Gotta love a guy who can rock an acoustic and an electric!
What wasn’t shocking was the the Davids–Archie and Cookie were safe or that Syesha was (once gain) in the Bottom 2. I truly was not expecting a Brooke send-off, and burst into tears (like Brooke, who also burst into tears). Brooke was also the victim of the website Vote For The Worst the past few weeks. VFTW acts like they sway the “Idol” vote so much, but if that’s true, how is that their pick (Brooke) went home? VFTW let me down.
The highlight of the gloomy show, as always, was the view call-in. Simon’s first girlfriend called in and asked if she was a better kisser than Paula (the kiss happened when Simon was 9). Simon turned a lovely shade of pink and stammered, “This literally was my first kiss. This was my first crush.” It was pretty endearing.

Then, of course, Neil Diamond performed a song from his new album called, “Pretty Amazing Grace,” which sounded a lot like a worship song with a cha-cha beat. I had no idea that Diamond played guitar (a sweet acoustic guitar) and he does some decent finger picking. Rock on, Neil! He also left all his shiny shirts at home and instead chose to wear a nice black ensemble.
David Cook rockin’ a sweet white electric!
Now that Brooke is gone, I’m giving David Cook my entire support. While I loved Brooke’s heart, I do think that Mr. Cook is the clear choice to win the competition. And, people, that Castro kid NEEDS TO GO!
And here’s Brooke one last time…
