American Idol Season 9 Finals Week 3

 Photo: www.mjsbigblog.com

This has been a very painful season. Very hard to watch. The powers-that-be at American Idol should at least make an attempt to make this look like a singing competition, but they've given up trying. If these are the best of the best talents in America, than I don't have much hope for the future of the music biz. Not that I did anyway - not with the Lil Wayne's and Ke$ha's out there butchering music. Ha ha.

My favorite - Siobhan Magnus - fell from grace this week. She wasn't horrible when she was hitting the big notes, but the verses were sketchy. Oh, no! She was the only competition for Crystal Bowersox... so this worries me. Unless she regains the edge that she had before, this is looking to be a very boring season...(let's just crown Crystal the winner already). And I'm started to doubt my earlier predictions that Siobhan could win this thing. She might be a little too weird for America. I love her, though. Go Siobhan!

The person I've been secretly rooting for all along is Lee Dewyze. I absolutely love his voice, but his performances never really showcased it the way it needed to be showcased. He's been improving, but this week was definitely his standout performance. I was soooo proud of him! He gained some confidence, and the vocal coach he's working with has really been helping. Good for him!

Ohhh, Tim Urban... Turban... Teflon Tim. You are something else! Vote For The Worst is head over heels in love with this guy! And I can see why. He is so inadvertently entertaining! Ha ha. When he was performing, I didn't understand why he kept s-l-o-w-l-y creeping forward on the stage. Ellen Degeneres said that it looked like he was trying to sneak into someone's bedroom. And his deer-caught-in-headlights looks are getting more and more intense and awkward. I love it. And the way he laughed at all the judges' harsh comments was hilarious. Simon said "He's laughing because it doesn't make any difference what we say. You're gonna smile, the audience is gonna vote for you, and nobody cares and you'll be here next week, so well done." Ha ha ha. Go Tim!

The best performances:
Crystal Bowersox's "Midnight Train to Georgia"
Lee Dewyze's "Treat Her Like a Lady"

The worst performances:
Tim Urban's "Sweet Love"
Didi Benami's "What Becomes of the Brokenhearted"

Results:
HOLY CRAP! TIM IS SAFE!!! Didi Benami, who has an amazing voice when she picks the right songs, went home this week.
