'American Idol' Recap: Nola Contendere

I was all prepped to title this one "Enjoy Being Left To The Flood" -- having recently learned that once again I have my finger on the pulse of last month and everybody already loved that song -- and then stupid Idol once again screwed me by going to New Orleans for Day Two.

Or else he is kidding, in his vest and his little hat and his plinking piano about smiling even when you're in a glee club with Rachel Berry, and then the truly insane standing-shriek followed by possibly passing out... Started out seeming mean, ended up awesome. It's going to be a Brittenum kind of day.
