Let’s just cut to the chase and point out that my batting average improved to .750 this week:
Asia’h? Nope, though I did say she was in trouble and put her in the bottom three. Close, but no cigar. I think she lost because nobody recognized her anymore. Watching her “journey” video, I counted at least EIGHT different hair styles. I barely recognized her from week to week.
Blake was cool.
Paula is absurd — I bet we’ll never see these four ever again. This isn’t the beginning of their career. They’ll do commentary for their local radio or television station near the end of the season, or maybe next. But none of them will ever have a hit record. MAYBE you’ll see Luke doing musical theater of some sort. MAYBE Danny will get some prominent magazine interviews, but that’s it. They’re all dead to me now. Time to move on.
I quite like the Final 12 this year. It’s an interesting group. There’s some cannon fodder in there, for sure, but there isn’t anyone I can point to as clearly not belonging in the finals this year. Nobody got through who didn’t deserve it. Bring it on!
