American Idol: Bucky Bites It

bucky.jpgTonight's show didn't need to be an hour. The results show should not match the performance show in length.

However, the show wasn't the only thing that doubled overnight; how did Seacrest get his beard to fill in so fast? Speaking of filler, I was wondering what they were going to do with tonight's extra 30 minutes. I'm still not entirely sure, but it's 30 minutes that I could have spent sleeping. In fact, I probably could have caught a few winks during the show and not missed a beat.

The episode started with the usual recaps of last night's performance show. Looking back, I am convinced that Queen should get rid of that guy from Bad Company and have Elliot Yamin lead their band.

Next came the huge "hooray for Queen" 5-minute spectacular with the remaining eight contestants singing a Queen medley -- which got banished to a tiny box in the corner of the TV screen while rehashed moments from previous episodes got the prominent top spot. Shouldn't something like this have been saved for the 2-hour finale?

Tonight was family night -- sort of -- with a lot the contestants' kin talking about how proud they were and how much they missed their respective contestant. Here was the filler we'd been waiting for. Did anyone catch Ace's brother in the audience? He reminded me of Patrick Swayze's brother. He was a less hot, slightly off version of Ace. Another family worth noting: the Daughtrys. Chris obviously got his voice from his parents. They all have the exact same speaking voice!

Speaking of Chris -- he is even hot with hair! I wonder exactly when -- and why -- he decided to dump it.

It was cute to see how proud everyone's family was, but wow. Please don't drag another results show out like that again -- ever.

As if elimination time wasn't painful enough, they really dragged this one out, making all of the bottom three contestants sing again. I was, however, happy to see Elliot sing again. Not so much when Ace got his repeat performance. I also didn't need to see Paula dance again though. Why doesn't she just whip her top off and get it over with already? I mean, she has already signed for additional seasons.

Elliot, Ace and Bucky were the bottom three. I was actually kind of disappointed that Bucky was the one that got picked. I know, that is quite shocking. I honestly didn't think it was his week and I am kind of miffed that Ace got to skate through on his crappy performance. I wonder if it has anything to do with the Bucky scandal that had spread this week. Either way, Ace should be thanking the wonderful world of genetics.

Next week's special guest is Rod Stewart. Does anyone else find it funny that the contestants have an age limit, but the guests don't? -- Rachel Cericola

Ace is the WoRST contestant and yet he remains! How stupid is the American public?

I am not a big fan of Bucky and I'm not under any delusions that he will win the competition but I am sorely disappointed that he was eliminated this week over Ace. Oh puhleeze!! And why aren't you voting for Elliott, people? He has such a great voice! Remember "Knocks me off my feet" and "Teach me tonight"? It was hot! In parts of "Somebody To Love" he sounded just like Freddie Mercury. That cool vibrato in his higher register. Wayyyy better than Ace and his "higher than the highest falsetto", as Paula once put it. (Where does she come up with this blather?) Now HE needs to go home soon!! I agree with the anonymous person who said he is the WORST contestant on the show. I thought Bucky did a better job singing Queen than he did. As for Chris's hair, there was an earlier episode where they showed a pic of him with "Ryan Seacrest hair" - his words, not mine. He said that if the time ever came where he started losing it up top (his widow's peak), he would just shave it all off. But I think he looks as fine as he sounds, with or without hair! Elliott is still my personal fave but I'm predicting that Chris will win the whole thing!

i feel the same way about bucky getting booted. for weeks i've wanted him off, but tonite it really was ace's time to sing the bad day song. i just can't deal for one more week with that way he tucks his shirt into the front of his pants and has it hang out the back like i did in 6th grade in 1993.

I agree with you on every point!

Kevin: Check
Bucky: Checky

I'm coming for you Ace ...

Hey Rachel - I read that Chris shaves his head now because his hairline started receding and he was going through major hair loss at a pretty early age. He looks hot with or without hair - I totally agree. Whoo. LOL!

who cares about Bucky. i'm so glad he's finally gone. but when ace got the boot that was the worst decision america ever made. it was a horrible night when he got voted off. but life gose on and when ace comes out with a album i'm sure it's gonna be way better than bucky, chris or any american idol.
