molasses in a microwave world

American Idol ended about an hour ago. As usual, I didn't rush to vote (still haven't). I watched "House" before coming upstairs to blog. Well, I have nothing much to say. When I asked Ted if he was interested in dual commentary again this week, his response was lethargic:

"I just don't have the..."

[long pause]

"... enthusiasm."

This comment was prompted by an overall lackluster night on Idol. The theme didn't seem like it would be too difficult (anything newer than the year 1999), but not everyone did so well in picking a well-written song that showed off their abilities. So, because neither of us was really blown away, and because it's all over the web already, there will be no elaborate discussion this week.

Kelly's Synopsis
Taylor did an excellent job with choosing "Trouble" by Ray LaMontagne, and his vocal was -- once again -- spot on. Katherine started a little wobbly but quickly got back on track and did a remarkable job with Christina Aguilera's "The Voice Within." Each week, she proves more and more that she can really sing. Elliott sang a unique arrangement of Gavin DeGraw's "I Don't Want to Be" which was enticing in the verse but didn't hold up as well in the chorus. That, of course, was not Elliott's problem, as his wonderful vocals shone through despite it.

Kelly's Votes For This Week (No Shock Here)
Taylor Hicks
Katherine McPhee
Elliott Yamin

Kelly's Bottom Three
Bucky Covington (go to Nashville, young man)
Lisa Tucker (sorry sweetie)
Ace Young (it had to happen sooner or later)
