AI results

Thanks to everyone who offered up advice on our current Cameron challenges. Her diaper rash was way better this morning but I will keep an eye on it to see if yeast infection might be at play.

I skimmed through the results show last night and aside from one prediction, totally didn't see the cuts coming. Even though Katelyn Epperly did only an OK job with her performance she is really cute and did a great job the week before. DH and I commented to each other, "She's totally safe." And we were totally wrong. And frankly, putting her up against Paige was just insulting. I cannot believe that Paige made it through for another week. Perhaps America was lamenting the lack of diversity that would come from her elimination? Did the tween vote save her? Either way, she and Katie have to take Simon's advice and find their "voice" in terms of who they want to be as an artist. Otherwise they won't last long.

I wasn't quite as surprised at Lilly being eliminated although she did have the money spot and it's unusual to see a performer cut who has that spot. I really liked her quirky voice but the girl needed a serious makeover and to tone down the facial expressions.

Todrick cemented his status as a dancer trying to sing and was rightly eliminated. He was the only one I predicted correctly. I was not happy to see Alex Lambert go. I actually think it was Andrew Garcia's time and think he also needs to get his shit together. Another weak link for me is Aaron Kelly.

What did you think about the eliminations? Who do you think will take the crown?

Top 12:
Aaron Kelly
Tim Urban
Katie Stevens
Paige Mills
Crystal Bowersox
Siobhan Magnus
Didi Benami
Lee Dewyze
Michael Lynche
Casey James
Andrew Garcia
Lacey Brown

I was bummed by todrick leaving because he shook things up a bit. Otherwise it felt like a coffee shop every night with these folksy singers. I hated lilly because she sang with a baby voice and it made me crazy. I love paige's voice but she bombed this week and is v lucky she made it thru. I was totally sad re alex lambert because he has an outstanding voice and should have stayed.

I agree with Lilly leaving. I thought her song was really annoying. I couldn't believe that they were praising it.

What does the "money spot" mean?

And, I love Crystal ... I think I could listen to everything she sang ... for me she is the stand out like Adam was last season. She reminds me of Edie Brickell, Natalie Maines, voices that you would know immediately ...

Love the updates ...:))

Crystal is phenomenal. What I find funny is that she reminds me of a number of female folk artists we listen to, but with an even stronger, clearer voice. I have a feeling she won't win because she isn't exactly a tradition beauty (mind you, I think she's stunning), but I also think she'll have a record deal with a sizable following in no time.
