My Idol Boyfriend
Yes, I too was crying when my Idol boyfriend, Elliot Yamin, performed last night. OK, so I wasn't exactly crying, but damn he was amazing! I thought his performance was as perfect as Idol performances go, and there's something so genuinely sweet about him and his singing that I couldn't stop voting for contestant number two. Paula's crying was a little crazy, but hey she's Paula Abdul and she is crazy. (In fact, she was acting Paula-crazy all night. I seriously wonder what her deal is.)
As for my if-I-can't-have-Elliott Idol boyfriend, Chris Daughtry, I thought he was great last night too. Not as great, but I enjoyed his version of Bryan Adams' Have You Ever Loved A Woman (or whatever it's called). And I believe he was at least trying to smile while singing, which he at least deserves some credit for.
As for the rest, I thought Katharine also was pretty great, and I'm not sure why the judges were SO harsh. They seemed disproportionately harsh to me, actually. Her dress was, well, wow. It might have been a little too much wow, but wow. Perhaps the judges' negativety will actually get her more votes, we'll see. I'm not saying her performance was amazing, but I actually thought she sang the song very very well.
Paris I thought was pretty good, but I wasn't blown away. (As I typed that sentence I realize I am starting to sound like the judges. Eek. Sorry.) And Taylor and Kellie were plain bad. And I'm a huge Taylor fan, so this was a major disappointment. Kellie, I never expect much with her, so . . .
In total, Kellie was by far the worst and so she should be going home tonight. But I have a feeling it won't be her. And that will piss me off. But as long as Elliott is around for another week, I'm content.
