That dumbass title truism is wishful thinking for the producers of American Idol this season, as to this Mouse, it is all over but the shouting. If Adam Lambert doesn’t win it all, then I’ve had my head straight up my ass for the past few months.
What’s there to talk about here anymore? We can rate or berate performances by the other six pretenders: Allison, Lil, Matt, Danny, Kris, and Anoop. They’ll slowly be eliminated until Adam faces off with either Allison or Danny in the final on May 20. The mediocrity of the wannabes will be clearly apparent and our attention will be easily diverted. Either Lil or Anoop will be eliminated this week. The other will be eliminated next week. The “Judges’ Save” is still available. They’re going to have to use it one of these weeks to keep the show on track. I don’t think it will be used to save Anoop, but it might save Lil. Ah, what the hell. Who cares! In terms of my favorite trite, ridiculous, Popeyesque, vogue utterence, it is what it is.
I missed a week, so I’m a little out of it. That’s not a bad way to be with respect to this show. I mean, what are we doing this week? The contestants tackle the song stylings of Barney Frank? Almost, but not quite.
I’m told that their guest mentor this week is Quentin Tarantino. Yeah, that’s right, the gory movie guy. So, the singers will be doing the soundtrack from Kill Bill Vols. 1 and 2? Cool!
Any way you slice it, this season of the foregone conclusion is steadily losing this Mouse’s interest.
