And then, finally, Sami prepares to tell them who America picked. At eleven minutes into the show! Can we put together some sort of class action lawsuit? We need some inspirational stories but quick if we want to trump David Archuleta singing "When You Believe" in this very time slot! Anyway, it was less than 100,000 votes that determined the winner. And the winner is...Roger. Oh my God, John McCain is totally going to be our next president. Mark is gracious about his defeat, just like Barillary Clibama will be. To make the foreshadowing complete, someone on set is totally going to push an ominous looking button. Argh.
But let's forget about all of our potential political woes for a while and revisit with some of the past Losers, shall we? First up we have Jenni and Lynn, of "father and daughter team Jenni and Lynn" fame. Jenni wears the doppelganger of an Anne Klein dress that I have been eyeing on Nordstrom.com. She looks okay, though I wouldn't say her transformation is radical. Lynn looks about the same, yet somehow older than ever. Maybe not "than ever." I mean, he really is just kind of old. I hope to be that old one day, though, so I should just shut up. Then there's husband and wife Amanda and Neill. Amanda looks exceedingly foxy and less like a midget, and almost trips while walking on the stage. Neill looks skinnier, but still toolish. Then there's Bette-Sue! And whoa! She looks awesome! She's wearing a bright pink jacket and black skirt and still has her same spiky asymmetrical hair. To paraphrase myself when I was earlier expressing my excitement about Mariah Carey appearing on Idol: I love that crazy ho! Then we have Mallory and Curtis! Mallory is looking fine in a shiny light purple dress, and Curtis looks like a combination of every black actor that you can think of. In a good way!
