American Idol - Top 11 Redux

Disclaimer - I'm late watching these shows again. I'm not going to watch the entire episode. For the remaining shows this season, I can only promise that I will watch Crystal, Michael and Siobhan. I really wish they'd cut everyone but those three and just finish the season early, but I'm not in charge. So I'll just suffer through the season until the top 3 show and hope they are the final 3 left.

If I can watch live, I'll twitter my comments and post them here. If I can't watch live, I'll write a short blog post. Cool? Ok!

And now, some notes from the performance show....

Dear Miley:
I'm pretty sure you don't get to criticize anyone's pitchyness. (New word! Whee!) Ever. Since I've never heard you sing well live. You're cute though. And you obviously have show biz savvy. But ease up on people's musicianship.
Thanks!
Macy

Dear America:
Paige Miles is ridiculously awful. Can't sing her way out of a wet paper bag. I can't think of a contestant in recent memory that was so pitchy. Please send her home.
Sincerely,
Macy

Dear Aaron:
You don't have a crush on Miley. That's all I'm going to say about that.
Sincerely,
Macy

Dear American Idol:
Entertainment Weekly had a really great article this week about how you can save your show. You should read it. I really loved two of the suggestions: 1) once a song has been sung two times on the show, it's out of the songbook for the Top 12. No one else can sing it. We're bored. I don't want to hear "Don't Want to Miss a Thing" or "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" again. And 2) Kill the swaybots. That's my favorite suggestion ever.
Sincerely,
Macy

Dear Crystal:
You're awesome. Thank you for trying out for this show. You're saving the season.
Love,
Macy

Dear Michael:
I LOVE you. Love your voice, love your personality, love your confidence. You are the bomb.com. Loved the orchestra on the stage. It actually fit.
Love,
Macy

Dear Glee:
Thank you for the new commercial. The fact that you'll be back three weeks from tonight makes me so happy today I can hardly stand it.
Love,
Macy

Dear America,
I really liked Katie Stevens at first, but she can go home too.
Thanks,
Macy

Dear American Idol:
Siobhan is not from Cape Cod, MA. Cape Cod is not a town. She's from Marston Mills.
Thanks,
Macy

Dear Siobhan,
You have one of the coolest voices I've ever heard, and I think you're awesome. Thanks for rocking out one of my favorite songs.
Love,
Macy

Results Show Notes -

Dear American Idol:
Please don't make me suffer through any more lip-synced group "performances." I have better ways to spend my time. Thank goodness I have a Tivo. Unfortunately, my two year old "likes the girls and the boys singing," so let's just take those group numbers away. Entertainment Weekly agrees with me.
Thanks,
Macy

Dear America:
Thanks for putting Tim and Paige in the bottom 3. Good call. It's too bad we only send one person home.
Thanks!
Macy

Dear Miley:
The onstage convulsions with your hair made me think you fell down while you were singing. (Yelling. Let's be real.) And I had to stop my Tivo, and I'm not happy about that. No more convulsing, okay?
Thanks,
Macy

Dear American Idol:
Is this Disney Channel night? What's happening here? Oldest Jonas Brother and one of those brunette Miley replacement girls? Why are you inflicting all of your tween stars on us in one night?
Not cool, American Idol. Not cool.
Macy

Dear America,
Good choice. Paige needed to go. Such bad singing. So annoyed that she was in the Top 12 instead of Katelyn.

Dear Macy,

Your sarcasm cracks me up. I couldn't even watch Miley's performance though i had a tween right beside me begging not to skip it. It was just too much.

It still cracks me up when you quote ET Weekly.

Love,
your bffffffffff

oh man, this makes me so glad I am not watching this year. I don't have to spend my nights curled up in the fetal position yelling at the contestants.

you crack me up, i was laughing outloud and i don't even know the singers - yellers as the case may be.

pls remind me when glee starts... i will be watching it upstairs on hulu for a few weeks.
