I had trouble getting into tonight's show. Maybe Moist Rub found something more inspiring.
Jordis got the encore as predicted. Back in black. Damn cool voice.
Then Brooke did her get real, raise your hands, blah blah blah crap.
The general populace agreed with Sid and the bottom three were Brandon, Ty and Tara. I'm kind of shocked and part of me is worried that this heavy dosage of reality television has lowered my IQ to that of the general reality show audience. I might have to start mixing in some PBS on the weekends. But I digress.
Brandon was shocked to be in the bottom three (get used to it, buddy), Ty figured he had it coming after the Foo Fighter fiasco, and Tara already seemed beaten down by the fact that she was on double secret probation by the time they announced her name. Jess almost got up to join them just out of habit, but put her bra back on and sat down to enjoy the elimination round from the den for the first time. So off we go...
Brandon - Devil Inside - I thought he looked good. For the first time I saw him as a possible singer for INXS rather than the guy doing my brake job down at the corner garage. Maybe I was distracted by the fresh shave and new threads, but I didn't think his vocals were as bad as INXS said. He's still a longshot, but stayed off the double elimination list.
Tara - Beautiful Girl - Thought she looked good tonight as well. For a soccer mom. She has a decent voice, but there's not much in this song to work with and her pink slip was already written.
Ty - Kick - OK, he didn't piss me off as much as usual tonight, but I'm still not sold one bit on this guy. I guess he earned the right to stick around and annoy me another week.
So, as expected, Tara got the boot, Suzie cried, Ty cried, and everyone else looked sad. Next week they should skip the elimination round and just have a foosball tournament.
