American Idol: It’s Over for Overmyer

19 Mar

American Idol started out tonight’s results show by revealing this season’s mentors: Dolly Parton (hope she has her back problems straightened out), Mariah Carey (by the way, she’s a good friend of Randy’s), Andrew Lloyd Webber (Danny Noriega would have been perfect for Sir Andrew week. Why did he have to leave so soon?), and Neil (Sweet Caroline, ba, ba, daaa) Diamond. That’s only four mentors. Aren’t there at least nine shows left? Maybe my math skills need a little sharpening, but that doesn’t seem to add up.

This mentor revelation was followed, of course, by the American Idol showchoir, some shameless promotions and plugs, and then finally the bottom three: Carly Smithson (how’d she get in there? maybe she shouldn’t have talked back to the judges.), Kristy Lee Cook (that one’s a shocker …), and Amanda Overmyer (guess America finally got tired of her one trick pony act, and she talked back to the judges).

After a “Red High Heels” performance by the adorable Kellie Pickler, who according to Ryan “has grown in so many ways since leaving us” (he couldn’t possibly be talking about her larger breasts, could he? isn’t this a family show?) and as much time-wasting as one can fit into an hour, Ryan revealed that Amanda Overmyer is the one leaving us tonight. I’m not surprised that she was voted off. She’s fun and spunky, but she’s not a great singer. What I am surprised by is how Kristy Lee Cook manages to land in the bottom three every week and then somehow escape the final elimination. Maybe America felt sorry for her this week for being the subject of Ryan, Randy, and Simon’s dirty joke. For a family show, American Idol sure is full of a lot of sexual innuendo.

There is a lesson to be learned here, kids: Don’t talk back to the judges; America doesn’t like it. All three contestants in the bottom three spouted off to the judges last night. Unless you’re Danny Noriega, it’s not cute. I hope you’re enjoying your Rosie cruise, Danny.

    Talking back to the judges has always been the quickest way to get eliminated. It just makes them look so bad.

    I can’t stand Kellie Pickler.

    I hate “Red Hight Heels,” but I love that song about her mother. It seems like that’s the only song she sings well, though.
