    As the season winds down, there are some lessons that still have not been learned. The judges don't get that their comments do have some effect - they tend to swing the voters away from anything that they say. That means that the praise that they gave Lauren could set Scotty up to be the winner. Next, the temperature from last week seemed to indicate that people were not impressed by Haley's guitar-playing father. In fact it may have hurt her. I'm not sure how you can be an "Idol" and at the same time appear to be apron-string tied to your parents. Finally...ballads, ballads, ballads. Ballads are the key to winning American Idol. I'm joking about all the above...but not completely.

    I completely did not like Scotty at the beginning of the se…

    Scotty, Lauren and Haley had an opportunity to really showcase themselves last night. They finally had the chance to do three songs and display their depth and versatility. Much to my surprise, Lauren seemed to be the best prepared and well put together. She looked good and sounded good each time. Even if she did have a slight slip in the middle of her last song, most of the public would have never taken notice if the judges had not harped on it. I say kudos to her. She has truly come a long way from the completely goofy (still sometimes slightly goofy) school girl to a somewhat polished performer who is clawing her way into contention to be in the big time.


    Haley even surprised me. I wasn't altogether impressed with her first two selectio…

    I am so over the "shocking results" from this show that I can’t even get upset by the outcome. I enjoyed the performances, but nothing about it really comes as a surprise for me. So while I do not like Haley I say “good for her.” She has taken the expression “using what you’ve got to get what you want,” and put it into action. Last night reconfirmed for me that the voting is often more based on emotion, sentiment and whether the communications systems are working properly than the actual talent and persona of the performer (which actually are the elements of a true "idol.") And she has worked that sentiment like a pro. And for all of the conspiracy theory nuts, that’s not what this is all about so hold your horses.

    There is a time and place for everything. Sometimes it doesn’t seem like it but the principle is still true. For those who believe in it even the Bible clarifies it for us if we refuse to understand by telling us that there is a season for everything under heaven. So often in the past the judges’ criticism has been absent, nonexistent or just plain bogus. Some of the kids seemed unfairly sent home by the public voting after listening to bad advice and silly comments. However, the statements by the judges for the most part were constructive, accurate and gently delivered (all except for Steven – he seemed to have a bug up his butt from the very beginning of the show and his attitude showed it clearly). I have been hard on Randy and Jennifer…

    A few things came to mind later the shows last week. So I might as well do a brain dump so that I can get a fresh refill this week.

    I've enjoyed watching and supporting the kids but I have just had it with some stuff. I have had enough of Jennifer to last a long time. Between ego, arrogance and conceit she has a very large zone of selfishness. She as frequently behaved like a petulant narcissistic child pretending to be a diva, but she has neither the class nor taste for that. Jennifer using the show to sell CDs was in extremely poor taste. Thank goodness the song and her performance sucked and was rather corny. After seeing her performance I wonder if any of the kids have ever taken her seriously. She waited until near the end of the seaso…
