American Idol: Finals Elimination #1

ace.jpgIt's clobbering time, but in true "AI" fashion, Fox needs to drag its first elimination show out to a full hour.

As always, the show kicked off with a moment where Ryan Seacrest needs to prove the judges worth by asking them questions. We get it; it's filler time.

Next there was a group song. This season's cheesiness kicked off with the Eagles' "Take It Easy." Joe Walsh is undoubtedly looking forward to an early grave now, so he can roll over in it. I've heard this said once, and it's well worth repeating: It's not American Idols. There is no plural! Like it's not bad enough that people have to be kicked off, but they have to also be remembered for this "Hooray for Everything" type of performance.

Chatting with the contestants was also incredibly boring. Not that I don't want to get to know these people. I just don't want to get to know the ones getting kicked off. Stop wasting my time. Down to business!

Becky O'Donohue was the first person to get kicked off. Sort of shocked that her hotness didn't get her through to at least the next round. Like Simon said, she could definitely be a model. She already has her Maxim spread to kick off her portfolio.

The boys came out, but when they left the stage, they left without Bobby Bennett. When people compare you to Ralph Kramden, it might make you a funny, nice guy, but it usually doesn't make you an "American Idol."

Back to the ladies, you could see some fear resurfacing. "AI" has a bad way off kicking people off. They make you think you are safe, but you are really not. And when they do get to the final two, they usually do the whole thing like a Band-Aid -- and rip you off the stage rather quickly.

That's what happened with Stevie Scott. Can't say I am shocked at all. Her performance the other night was terrible. I felt bad for her because she looked like she was going to cry after Simon told her how badly she screwed up -- just not bad enough to actually vote for her.

With six minutes left, it was time to get rid of the last guy for the night. Patrick Hall was a goner, and again -- it was no surprise. His performance was average at best and his personality and wardrobe wasn't exactly making that extra effort that he needed to get people to dial the phone.

With the exception of hoping that Brenna was gone this week, I am pretty much satisfied. Expect four more to face the chopping block next week. -- Rachel Cericola

I am extremely disappointed in America. How dare the let Becky go. Even though she will get some kind of carrer cuz she is GORGEUOS. I think Kinnik or at least obnoxious Brenna could have gone. I was almost in tears when Becky left. America shame on you> If any one feels the same as me please leave a comment.
