Tuesday, March 10, 2009: American Idol

Tuesday, March 10, 2009: <i>American Idol</I>

So after last week's big surprise twist that got cut off everyone's DVRs, the show is back for another three hours this week with the Top 13. Which is exciting, only because I personally like Anoop. But disconcerting because I've spent altogether too much time wondering just how long the producers/judges have been manipulating us, and when exactly they concocted this whole Top 13 scheme. My guess is probably about the time they decided not to do Idol Gives Back and realized they needed an extra week of content. Which annoys me. But anyway, that's water under the bridge, because tonight we get the Top 13 for the first time and we can get down to the actual business of voting for the next American Idol.

My guess for the first one out is Jasmine. She's cute enough, but so far she's shown the personality of a cutely dressed doorknob. I guess it all depends on what she sings, and if she takes Kara's advice and sings a Rihanna song (does Kara get Rihanna royalties? I should investigate that.) Even though she's a solid singer, I am predicting Jasmine's ouster because the far worse singers in this competition have sob stories that America has connected to, and therefore will stick around for a while... much to my dismay.

Anyway, since there's two hours and 13 contestants we should be spared some of the annoying banter, and just get on to the business of the actual singing... or maybe that's just wishful thinking on my part. It's probably that. They always seem to find time for inane banter on this show.

Wednesday's show is going to have Kanye West, Kelly Clarkson and likely a ridiculous group sing-along, and, one can only hope, more stupid Ford commercials. What will they think of this year? I'm bracing myself for the horror.
