American Idol Season 9 - Top 11 (#1 on Billboard Hot 100)

I'm not even bothering with detailed recaps, y'all, because this season is a fucking joke.

Ryan and Simon: *flirt shamelessly*
f: *facepalm*

Miley Cyrus: Guess what? I am your mentor.
f: ...this show has officially jumped the shark.

Lee: Letter by the Box Tops.
f: Bored already. *goes to find something to eat*
Judges: We love you.

Paige: Against All Odds by Phil Collins.
f: I left the room after the first note. Couldn't bear it! No idea what the judges said, other than that Simon said that song pretty much killed her in the competition.

Tim: Crazy Little Thing Called Love by Queen.
f: Huh, I didn't hate it, perhaps because he stuck close to the original arrangement.
Judges: We hate you.

Aaron: I Don't Wanna Miss a Thing by Aerosmith.
f: Yep, it was Muzak Aerosmith. For shame. Horrifyingly bad.
Judges: We love you.

Crystal: Me and Bobby McGee by Janis Joplin.
f: That was completely brilliant and she looked beautiful. Hearts in my eyes. I really love her.
Judges: WE LOVE YOU!!!
I take exception to the bitching about how she has beautiful and powerful women sign her guitar and yet she let Miley sign it -- I'm not a Miley fan, but those comments are just unfair. To call Miley not beautiful is just fucking catty, and while she may be manufactured and less than talented as an artist, as an entertainer she commands the attention of pretty huge swathes of the younger generation. For some values of power, she certainly is powerful. In the end, it's Crystal's damned guitar and Crystal's damned decision who signs it and why. She may well have asked just to flatter Miley, but considering the doors Miley's goodwill might open? Yeah, not a dumb move from any angle.

Big Mike: When a Man Loves a Woman by Percy Sledge.
f: Yawn.
Judges: We like you.

Andrew: I Heard it Through the Grapevine by Marvin Gaye.
f: The beginning was promising, but then the music and background vocals overwhelmed him completely. He's just. Lost his edge. :\
Judges: We don't like you.

Katie: Big Girls Don't Cry by Fergie.
f: That actually wouldn't have been bad if she'd stopped after the first refrain.
Judges: We like you.

Casey: The Power of Love by Huey Lewis and the News.
f: What the hell was that.
Judges: We like you.

Didi: You're No Good by Linda Ronstadt.
f: It was entertaining! Especially when she started spewing that garbage about how ~diverse~ she is, after the judges' remarks, ugh.
Judges: We don't like you.

Siobhan: Superstition by Stevie Wonder.
f: I didn't get it. *headscratch* Whatever, she's still pretty awesome. I was very distracted by the hair.
Judges: We LOVE you.

OK, can we just cut to the Crystal vs Siobhan finale? Please? Oy.
