    Votes!!! American Idol
    I had to send J to bed before Idol was over tonight - tomorrow is her first ever standardized testing, and we need to be sure she rests. She needs more sleep than her sis, and so -- at 9:30, I cried uncle on her behalf.

    But not before she registered her vote. And, the family votes go to:

    1) J's future boy toy - Blake
    2) Beloved's fave of the night (taking into account that he was the slowest at registering his vote, and Gina was already taken) - Jordin
    3) My "I really want her in this thing" vote - Gina (even though I think she did a huge disservice to a great song).
    4) E's fave (who I likely would have voted for if she didn't claim him first, knowing Beloved would have gone for Gina) - Chris Sligh.

    Chris Sligh.

    Yes, I'm voting for Chris Sligh despite my post of last week. I will not be a bigot. How can I complain about bigots if I am one of them? Eh? He was good. I like him. So there.

    Blake ROCKS. I loved his choice, I loved what he did with it, I loved what he wore, I loved his moves, and I love his persona. He is the one I want to win.

    Or Gina. But I think Blake is better.

    I think I want Melinda to be voted off. She's too good, and I'm bored of them saying she's "in a league of her own." She is great - her voice is amazing. But --- it's more fun wondering if someone's gonna screw up. We know she isn't. It gets a wee boring.

    This is my first week NOT voting for LaKesha. I cannot and will not vote for Bond song. No freaking way. I said to Beloved toward the end of her song, "this sounds like a Bond song." He said, "it IS a Bond song!!" Eww! No! I will not.

    Sanjaya? It was his best that I've seen.

    Also, Haley has some freaking AMAZING legs. Even during the recap, I went on and on about how great her legs were. And I'm a straight woman. Those things were works of art, in my opinion. My kids laughed when Simon said that her voice was NOT the thing that people would be talking about tomorrow - they said, "no, her LEGS will be!" because of my going on and on about her legs.

    I hope Phil Stacey goes bye-bye this time. He was in the bottom 3 last week, he's a poo-head, and he really wasn't all that tonight. And when Simon said as much, he looked like he was going to cry.

    And, I'm fairly certain he gets his eyebrows done, and while that may be borderline tolerable from a girl -- I don't like that in a boy. AND!! He can't get away with pulling a Steven Tyler - he has NO HAIR!! Put the freaking microphone down, use a hand-held, do something - but you can't be bald and be a big hair rocker-boy. Hair is required.

    Thank you, Amercan Idol, for killing 2 hours of my evening.

      Blake is our household favorite... he really is pretty talented for taking an old song and updating it. And Chris did pretty good, too.

      I think Sanjaya made Ray Davies head explode somewhere. It may have been his best so far, but that's not a very high bar.

      Bat Boy must go!

      What a way to avoid working on seminar papers. *sigh*

      What a way to avoid Con Law!

      Totally agreeing with your analysis this week. Melinda has a beautiful voice. She's even kind of cute. BUT, is it me or does she remind you of a grandmother? Hubby thought she was in her mid-40s. But she can't be older than 29 and be on Idol, right?

      How come Lakisha sings an old song and sounds "old fashioned" but Melinda gets more and more praise and never really branches out of her comfort zone? JMHO. Now if Melinda tried Paint it Black...
