4/12/12: WHO WENT HOME ON AMERICAN IDOL TONIGHT? SHOCKING RESULTS AND SAVE IS USED!

AMERICAN IDOL had a scare tonight as the judges truly earned their millions.  The ending had fans in shock and shouting in disbelief, and that included me.  It came down to the bottom three stunning us all, and one of the best singers almost going home.

The show was packed with performances tonight.  The show started with the remaining contestants singing Pink’s popular tune “Raise Your Glass“.  Then former Idol finalist James Durbin performed his new rock song, which was followed by a polished performance by Jennifer Hudson singing alongside Neo.  She sounded and looked great and brought the audience to their feet with her new single “Think Like A Man“.  Listen to the lyrics and fall in love with this message!

Getting down to serious business, the first two called to center stage were Hollie and Jessica.  Ryan Seacrest asked them to create two sides, obviously to keep the suspense going.  As Hollie headed to the opposite side of the stage, she had a look of horror and must have thought to herself “darn, I want to be on Jessica’s side”.  Especially after Jimmy Iovine totally ripped her last performance, calling her “stiff” in comparison to Jessica.  But was she right in thinking that?

So let’s cut to the chase, the huge shock tonight was just how badly America got it wrong.  The bottom three singers were Elise, Jessica and Josh, making me wonder if a producer put the wrong names on the card.  Josh and Jessica are clearly the best singers in this competition.  But another thing which could have happened; people did not vote and expected them to sail through.

Does the show do this to keep the fans on their toes?  Sometimes it makes me think they do this on purpose to add suspense.  Jessica Sanchez was on her way home?  This seems crazy and now makes me take back my angry statement about the judges keeping their save from Deandre Brackensick.  It was good to see Jennifer Lopez grab the microphone out of her hand and say “of course we’re using the save!”  No need for Jessica to continue her song, her tears were all for nothing.

Who will win Idol?  If America actually gets it right Jessica Sanchezshould be the clear winnerBut Josh and Colton will definitely give her a run for the money, so she better watch her back!  Come on America…pick up the phone and vote for the best singers, or we will end up with the “second best” as the winner.

In the end no one went home on Idol tonight, but that means two will leave next week. Let’s hope it is NOT Jessica or Josh.

On another note, Jimmy really seems to love Skylar…but she really is not a top pick for me. But she did hang on once again, so maybe America is feeling her too.

4/12/12: JENNIFER HUDSON PERFORMS ON AMERICAN IDOL TONIGHT

JENNIFER HUDSON will perform on American Idol tonight.  It was the birth of her road to stardom, which includes winning an Oscar and Grammy.  How exciting it must be for her to return to the place which brought her fame and fortune.

It is a great night for her, but too bad it comes during the week the trial starts for her families tragic murder.  Jurors were instructed by the Judge not to watch American Idol during her appearance, so they won’t get swayed.  But seriously, that should not make a difference in their decision to put a killer behind bars.  Her mom, nephew and brother were allegedly murdered by her sisters ex-boyfriend.

Hudson should give the departing contestants hope…she is a true example of incredible success without actually winning Idol.  Chicago and the world loves Jennifer Hudson…and wishes her more amazing years to come.

No need to update this blog later with a review of her performance…I know she will rock!

2012: 99-YEAR-OLD ROMEOVILLE WOMAN ROBBED DURING HOME INVASION

It was reported that a 99-year-old woman was robbed during a home invasion this week. Thieves posed as village worker’s when they busted into the home, located in Romeoville, IL.

When her 62-year-old son answered the door and told them they did not need their water pressure checked, they pushed past him and knocked him down.  He and his mother were duct taped to chairs and told to keep their mouths shut.  They hit the elderly woman in the face and then stole money from the home before leaving.

This is a disgrace…Who hits a senior citizen and knocks them down?  What if it was their grandmother…they would be furious.  The three presumed hispanic men, reportedly escaped in a black truck…let’s hope their friends and family turn them in.

What has this world come to?  What happened to respecting your elder…this generation has a lot to learn.  SERIOUSLY, is money worth that much to these animals?  This is tragic.

Ann Budzinsky is a tough senior, she refused medical attention and is said to be doing well.

2012: BRITNEY SPEARS X FACTOR JUDGE; IS 15 MILLION TOO MUCH?

Rumor has it, pop singer Britney Spears may be joining Simon Cowell as a judge on X Factor.  The “come back” kid is reportedly in talks with Cowell, for a big payday of $15 million a season.

Since Cowell gave Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger the boot after the first season, he has scrambled for a replacement.  Originally he approached Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston, but when they obviously were not available, desperation set in.  This opened the door for Spears to likely earn a bigger check than she is worth.

X Factor has the potential of earning millions, but with the lower than expected ratings, this comes as a surprise to many.  Did Simon fire the original judges too soon?  It may have left him in a better negotiating situation had he gave them more time to settle in.

The singing competition failed to generate the ratings of American Idol during its premiere season, but does he really believe Spears is the answer.  Well, only time will tell if she is a big enough name to boost his shows viewership and ego.

But what I can’t understand is my offer to become a judge would have cost him a lot less.  “Hey Simon”, why didn’t you call?  When host Steve Jones was first on the chopping block I gave him the opportunity to reach out for a reasonable replacement.  Seriously, Simon pick up the phone and call…an unknown fan being a judge would definitely help your ratings, and at a bargain!
