AI5 - Paris is Burned

Poor Paris. No, really. Here's a girl who actually belongs on American Idol. Now that I think of it, the remaining four also belong on American Idol, so I guess there's just no way of avoiding someone "deserving" getting the boot.

I think Paris has shown the world (ok, North America) that she's got what it takes. I only hope she keeps the notoriety and ditches the scent of American Idol when it comes time to record, release, and promote.

Oh, and there's no recap/review/update for this week's performance show, but in case you missed it, the theme was "one from your birth year, and one from a current Billboard chart (aside: just how many songs are contained in all the "current billboard charts"? 100? 200? ). Elliott had one weak, one strong. Paris had two strong performances. Chris had one weak, one strong. Katharine "for the love of god, would you people stop googling my "wardrobe malfunction" McPhee had one weak, one very strong, and Taylor had two strong.

Next week it's Elvis and Tommy Mottola (...whoever he is. I promise I'll at least google him so I don't sound like such a bohemian). I can only hope to all that is good out there that there's a whole lot of shaking going on. No, Taylor, I'm not talking to you.

Mikestand out!

You did not just say "Mikestand out!".

I did, actually. I didn't want to, but it was unavoidable. There's a word for when you mock your own work.

But fatigue has effaced it from my mind.

I think you need a cathartic.
