American Idol Results: Just Call Her Sanjaya!

Kristy Lee Cook did a better job than usual.  I'll admit that.  But I'll say it again - as I do each week - she is the one with the least amount of skills.  How is it that so many people are irritated by her and want to see her go -- yet she gets voted in another week?  Who does she think she is?  Sanjaya? 

Sanjaya Malakar was season six's anomaly... which basically meant he had a huge fan base.  Some were voting because they truly liked the shy teen.  Others (like Howard Sern and votefortheworst.com) thought it was funny to keep him in the competition.  Those mischievous voters took on Operation Sanjaya.  He was finally eliminated at #7.

The way Kristy Lee is going, do you think she has that Sanjaya power?  With one good song this week, Kristy Lee didn't even get in the bottom three. Mind you that one good song -- is still the weakest performance out of the bunch.   The bottom half consisted of Syesha Mercado (one of the best this week) and Jason Castro (another good one).  However, they both had the votes to escape those cold lonely silver stools.

Chikezie Eze, by the way, had the least amount of votes this week.  He sang himself off the show tonight. Gave the ladies in the audience a wink, caressed adoring fans' hands... 

And we saw how his mom was grooving with those... come to mama... hand movements.  

That cute smile of his.  The orange suit.  Chikezie always looks so sincere and genuine.  
Tonight it was not easy being Chikeze.  But I can grasp he's had it worse.  

An American Idol show record of more than 30 million votes came in for the contestants this week.  Tonight we saw the top 10 sing together.  It looked more like a lip sync from the Brady family.  
You know, the contestants really do work hard all week.  They have places to be.  They have to learn their group song and the performance as well as their own song... practice, practice, practice!

The competitors told us today (plug-plug) they get by with a little help from their iPods.  We also learned that when you download the contestants' songs from iTunes, you get the full length version.  An extra!  Everyone loves an extra! When you watch the show, you are only seeing a condensed version of the song.
  I don't understand what Carly Smithson was doing freaking out seeing herself on an iTunes cover or whatever it was... Hasn't she already produced and sold records?  And videos too.

The Ford video was very creative the way the contestants just showed up singing "I Want You to Want Me" on that guy's T-shirt.  They all looked adorable. 


I'm curious.. is any one out there entering the American Idol songwriter contest?  Or do you know someone who is?  The deadline for that contest is March 31 (this Monday).
