Simon Cowell grimaces his way through Chris Richardson's tribute to the Virginia Tech tradgedy.
...and then there's Sanjaya, with red bandana truly giving us something to talk about...
Certainly not as good as last week, but re-watching it today, Sanjaya wasn't that terrible. In fact he was better than Chris Richardson and Blake both. It was absolutely brilliant on Ryan's part to bait Simon by taking up for Sanjaya. Touching too, as Simon was completely vicious in his critique of Sanjaya.
Assessing all the contestants last night PhilPheratu Stacy performed very well, as did Jordin and Melinda. Jordin got her first real pimpage to win the show from Cowell last night - it is that time of the season for Simon to begin his 'push' to get his choice in prime winning position.
LaKisha, Blake and Chris Richardson were all three pretty bad. Simon's completely over Chris finally pointing out the obvious, the boy's got a nasally voice.
Dial Idol has my boy in last place, but they have been wrong pretty much all season, so I hope he stays on past this debacle. I remember last season's country week was Taylor Hicks worst performance of the season, he sang John Denver's "Country Roads", and it was an abysmal performance.
B3 tonight most likely should be Sanjaya, Richardson and LaKisha. Shocker to go home this week I'd go with Richardson. Producers should keep baby-Momma on for the special show next week, and Sanjaya keeps this season's ratings up. After last night's performance if he stays, the ratings should blow through the roof next week.
Speaking of saving Sanjaya, Dave Della Terza steps out in the Big Apple, visits Howard Stern's radio studio and then tops off the trip to Dave Letterman.
Dave on Dave.
