In the past week, American Idol contestants have been mentored by singer-songwriter Dolly Parton. What an honor for these young people!
My top 4 favorite performances:
Simon Cowell was in top form tonight, and I say that with sarcasm. Most nights I agree with him to some extent. But tonight I think he could have used a tall glass of prune juice and a couple of happy pills. He seemed rather miserable and couldn't find much nice to say about these brave and talented performers. And the comment about Carly's lack of fashion sense was really 'the pot calling the kettle black', now wasn't it? Simon? Take your own advice. Dress like the star you are supposed to be. You're a good looking man. Why dress in sports bar clothes on national television?
My mother was visiting from Vancouver last week. She's not much into TV, and not an Idol fan. However, she sat patiently through last week's performance and results shows. When Michael Johns performed, I think she drooled. :)
