commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

Aaron Kelly sent home from the ‘American Idol’……..

Aaron Kelly on "American Idol" Wednesday

My wife watched the show at my son’s place….

When she came in…..

Her comment was…

‘Nice kid…..

But he needed to go’……..

Still, despite coming so close to winning it all, Kelly was all smiles when host Ryan Seacrest told him his time was up, saying, “I’ve had a great time; I’ve had a blast,” before taking one more run at “Moon” (and, to be honest, this version was much better than Tuesday night’s).

And while Kelly’s exit wasn’t exactly shocking, it was who joined him in the bottom two that raised more than a few eyebrows: Michael Lynche, the big-bodied crooner who won praise for his jazzy version of “The Way You Look Tonight,” a performance Cowell and fellow judge Ellen DeGeneres particularly liked.

In the end, Lynche survived, and joined Lee Dewyze — a lock to advance after his swinging, swaggering take on “That’s Life” — Crystal Bowersox and, somewhat surprisingly, Casey James, in the top four.

James had been most “Idol” experts’ pick to get the boot on Wednesday, following an awkward version of “Blue Skies.” And yet, he avoided elimination yet again (maybe it had something to do with his scruffy, sorta-beard).

Earlier in the show, Lady Gaga — who wore black (lace) in keeping with the classy, Sinatra vibe of the show — strutted through a performance of her current single “Alejandro,”

  2. I still see a bitter backlash against Big Mike,who should have been GONE a long time ago and the judges are STUPID for using the save earlier.

  4. James B, the judges are going to WISH they’d used the save on Siobhan or even Katie (whose tears several weeks back was hard to watch) and I betcha Simon is saying to Kara, Ellen and Randy, “I warned y’all NOT to use the save on Big Mike.”

    It’s embarrassing that Big Mike is only there because he’s the TOKEN minority dude out there, but I’m betting you that Aaron’s supporters are going to vote for Lee just to get Big Mike out.

    Casey’s days are also likely going to end in 2 weeks max because we’re heading for another Blue State vs. Red State showdown between Lee DeWyze (Illinois) and Crystal Bowersox (Ohio), I still see Crystal winning because she needs crossover voters to help her out.
