Okay, Top Ten. I can name six. No, seven. So backstage everybody seems kind of prayers-y, and Andrew has his arm around Didi, and then Ryan makes the judges that actually matter make out. Jackson and Kara follow suit, mugging as usual for the camera. Of all the processes and products that I'd like to pull back the curtain on, this show ranks right above the human brain and right below sausage. Let's not do that again.
Out in the audience, everybody looks like David Cook or Jay Brannan. Fair amount of gravediggers out there tonight too. Ryan asks the whole audience to scream the name of the person they love most. I scream "Ryan!" Simon screams "Simon!" Somebody tragic screams "Clay Aiken!" Then they bring out the kids. I think maybe Aaron Kelly was the tragic person. Ryan climbs all over all of the Top Ten that aren't Didi, and then we learn about Usher.
