I have a feeling I’m supposed to think that we had ‘shocker’ eliminations tonight, but I can’t quite make myself care. That’s bad, right? I just feel that, okay, yes, there were other contestants who sang worse than Janell Wheeler, Ashley Rodriguez (okay, maybe not her), Joe Munoz (okay, he was okay, but he was so fodder, so I’m putting his elimination squarely on producer’s shoulders who never gave him 5 secs) and Tyler Grady, but it’s not like they performed really well either so that I’d be really sad that they’re leaving. And if things continue as they are, I don’t think I’ll be caring who stays or leaves in the weeks up ahead either. Wow, Simon must be really happy this is his last year!

So, the highlight of the results show was the return of Allison Iraheta and Idol champ Kris Allen. If you’re a regular on my blog, then you know that I absolutely love ‘Scars’ (check it out on iTunes). I think it’s the best ballad from Allison’s album, and the message of the song is something that anyone at any age can identify with. I thought that Allison sang it really well on the show (except at the end when she got distracted), and I’m hoping that this jumpstarts album sales for her. Whoever is picking her outfits out should be fired though, what on earth was she wearing? The last time I liked Allison’s look was when she did ‘Slow Ride’ with Adam.

Kris wasn’t on the show to pimp his album, but to talk about American Idol’s partnership with the UN Foundation for Haiti Relief. If you’d like to help out some more, just head on to AmericanIdol.Com or the UN Foundation to donate. And since pictures are always more effective than words, Kris sings ‘Let It Be’ set to a video backdrop of his trip to Haiti and interactions with the people there. The UN Foundation YouTube channel has a whole bunch of Kris’ vids from his trip if you’re interested in watching.

Just on a shallow note, since Kris wasn’t there to pimp out what a good singer he is – I just wanted to point out that’s how you rework and re-arrange a song to make it your own without killing the melody and song structure. I thought ‘Let It Be’ was lovely, and yes, not vocally perfect, but sung with such heartfelt emotion and connection with the song, which is what I’ve always loved about Kris.

    I don’t think that rendition of scars will help. Sorry, couldn’t understand the words and it became boring. She’ is looking great. The hair is under control. Still goofy. Kris, boring as usual. Cute as usual. Monotone and inarticulate as usual. I wanted to see more of Tyler. The judges were raving about his 70s vibe and then trashed it. So confusing for these contestants.

    I agree with buffy not her best performance nor her best song. She is really talented and there are so many better choices. Oh and Kris I know it was for a great cause and everything and its doing great on iTunes but he has a single out that’s been doing okay on iTunes. Somehow this months old song is holding on at around number 20 it just needs a push (like a performance on a highly rated show hmm where can he find one of those). If this wasn’t for charity I’d be seriously angry, but he’s such a nice guy…
