(in honor of Lennon/McCartney week)
Hey, dude, don't make it bad,
Take a bland song, and make it blander.
Remember, Randy and Ellen are smart,
And you can ignore Simon and Kara
Hey dude, don't be afraid
You were made to guest-star on Disney
The minute your texting votes don't come in
You can begin to be a guest star
I remember this them from 2 seasons ago, and it was a fantastic night. I can still hear Carly Smithson singing "Come Together" and Michael Johns singing "Across the Universe." And David Cook's amazing Eleanor Rigby. That was a great night for music, because it's a night of great music, and I think the contestants always do better when, really, there can't be too many bad song choices. Oh, had DiDi hung around, she might have tried to show us a new dimension of her by treating us to a ride in a yellow submarine, but other than that...
So, we had diridgedoos and bagpipes, guitars, guitars, guitars, dreadlocks, and a nearly lethal use of a flatiron. Andrew took us to Saturday morning Bandstand, Crystal took us to a really cool Blues club about 40 minutes into her set. Siobhan and Aaron gave us just a taste of what we might hear in-between reassurances that our call is important to somebody. Casey rocked the Leif Garret look (thanks, A.J.), while Timanilow brought the Leif Garret vibe. ALERT! Quite possibly the first time "Leif" "Garret" and "vibe" have been used in a single sentence. Mike frightened lonely people everywhere with the knowledge that he's looking at them (and when he finds them, he will pick them up in his massive hulk-like arms), Katie made me remember why I love that song (and her father made me remember why grown men should wear pants if they're going to be on TV). And Lee--quote of the night:
LEE: (when he saw the bagpipe guy backstage) Is he here for me?
But I thought that was totally cool.
So...this'll be a tough week to call, because nobody was terrible; but here goes:
Bottom 3 = Andrew, Tim, Aaron (oh, so torn between Aaron and Katie...)
Going home? Andrew
