American Idol: The Results show

Man, I just know the singing of “God Bless The U.S.A.” is going to piss off a lot of the more, shall we say, protest-oriented people. Too bad. I thought they sounded great. Great idea to have Josh lead it off, too. He sounded great.

But the most frustrating moment of AMERICAN IDOL ever happened on tonight’s show. Julia DeMato lost. I was fine with that. It was the mercy kill I had hoped for.

As is customary, they had her sing her song from the previous night again. Usually, this comes off not so great. The song wasn’t right for them to begin with. The singer is filled with nerves and is probably embarrassed at having been dumped. And to top it all off, Kimberly Caldwell is off on the side trying desperately to make waterworks to get more camera time.

But Julia gave the best performance of her AI life in those final moments. She was loose. She sounded great. She was moving with the song. She didn’t look nervous. She didn’t look like the deer in the headlights. Where was THIS Julia for the past 3 weeks? She would still be around if she had conquered her nerves like this last month. Instead, it wasn’t until there was no pressure anymore that she found herself. Too bad.

Next week: Hopefully, Corey will go. I was worried about Kimberley there for a moment. I would not have minded it that much if Rickey Smith had gone, to be honest.

    I found the song offensive, not for any political reasons, but because, man, that is one craptacular song! Just horrid.

    “She was lose. “

    Or loose, take your pick. ;)

    I just found it ironic that the one night I actually watched the entire show, all eleven or however many it was singers, it was country-rock night, with barely an enjoyable song in the bunch. When’s show tune night!!??

    I’m sorry but if I hear that God Bless the USA song again, I’ll swear I’m gonna kill something. I’m not against patriotism, but that song is just plain overdone.
