Pop Culture Time Out: American Idol


We're hooked but we didn't vote this week and what a mistake!

Chris is GONE... and America is shocked. I guess that teaches us not to vote, right? I mean the presidential election taught us that once. Now we need to apply that lesson to the bigger contest - aka: who gets to rack up more money for Simon Fuller?

Who do you want to win now that we're down to three? I'm rooting for Katharine, but would be fine with Taylor. He seems to have the biggest fan base having never been in the bottom two or three.

Reality TV just got interesting again.

On a side note: can Terry win Survivor? :) I think so.

I"m sooooo ticked!! And I did vote last night and it was every bit as hard to get through to vote for him as it always is. I don't even care who wins now and probably will not watch next week. There isn't anyone left that compelling for me to schedule around! I hope Chris still makes a record and gets out there!

I think Chris will do great. Did you ever get tired of his same stare, though? I think he lacked charisma even though I loved his voice and can totally see him in the pop rock industry. Hope he gets a record deal right away.

As far as the others... I really don't get how Elliot has survived. I like his voice, especially when I close my eyes. But he doesn't seem like AI material to me.

But what do I know? It's a fun show. I love to watch it and am amazed at how many people tune in every week.

Okay, I'm out of the closet... My wife and I are addicted to AI.

I was bummed when Chris was voted off.

I heard that the band, Fuel, has signed Chris already as their new lead singer. Any truth to that?

Dave said...

Fuel and Chris D. are talking but no deal has been signed yet. Chris is taking his time and weighing his options.

I am not going to watch anymore. I really think if they continue this show, they need to add a new spin to it. Judges should get an immunity idol and be allowed to use it if they wish. I think that would have saved Chris last night.

The rest of them are just lounge singers.

BTW, I got FANTABULOUS Springsteen tickets yesterday. I am excited!

Bari, lol! I love the idea of an immunity idol for the judges. Hilarious! That would be one way to change the dynamics.

Where are you seeing Bruce? Jealous!!
