Bah-bye-ah Sanjaya

So Sanjaya bit the dust last night. I wish I could say it was gleeful, but it wasn't. Simon was so smug he was nearly giddy about it.

LaKisha hit the bottom two. The only thing that bothers me about that is that it'll rally people to vote for her and save her for the next couple weeks.

And Chris R got away with his backtalk about nasally singing -- for this week. I fully expect him to be the next one to go, though.

Bucky was in the audience. That was fun.

And they pimped the "Idol Gives Back" show for next week really hard. There was a brief intro to it where Seacrest sounded so serious (The Most Important Thing Idol Has Ever Done!) about it all I thought he'd been taking broadcasting lessons in hyperbole from Bob Costas for a minute. (Seriously, have you ever listened to Costas announce the opening of the NLCS or World Series or something? It's like he's doing a play-by-play on WWII and the Cards are trapped in the Ardennes.)

So my question is this: Do we care about this show next week? You tell me. If, because it's for charity, I have to sit back and politely clap and mewl about how lovely it all is, I'll sit through the thing but I won't be happy about it. But if we're all on board for full-out mocking, I think the show holds an awful lot of promise.

I vote for mockery. Yes, I realize that life in modern day Africa is still pretty sucky and whatnot, but Idol? Seriously? I'm happy to mock this extravaganza merely because I can. After all, could they have possibly gotten a more bizarre mix of people? Borat?!?! Really?!?!? Talk about something truly insignificant.

Perez Hilton is a mocker. You are so much better Susan. In fact its a major irritation to me that his audience is bigger than yours.
Have at it next week, I am sure there will be some good stuff to satirize.

Let's mock away! It'll be a mockfest!

I think Chris's comment about Virginia Tech combined with his placement next to Ryan at the end put him in the top three.

Motto of the week: Spare the Mock & Spoil the Show ... we're allowed to mock the performers. They're not up for charity.

I'm so glad we're allowed to make fun! YAY!
