American Idol: Didn't See THAT One Coming

She could have used a Hero.
 Since the second performance show had a Birth Year theme, it was ‘cute’ that the intro to the elimination show featured a mash-up between Steppenwolf’s "Born to be Wild" (the guys) and Lady Gaga’s "Born This Way" (the girls). Get it both songs have Born in the title!

Personally, the intro performance always reminds me of something you'd see at an amusement park or as the opening number of a cheesy 70's variety show. I want the results! Of course, before we could get to the elimination, we had performances from Lee DeWyze and The Black Eyed Peas.

Lee debuted his new single, “Beautiful Like You.” I hope you heard it, because I doubt you’ll be hearing much of it on the radio. The Peas did their new song, “Just Can’t Get Enough” It’s a Peas song, so like most Peas songs, I liked it but didn’t love it. Fergie channeled her inner Marilyn Monroe in a beautiful white dress with flowing hair. Gorgeous.

But to the good part. The person I knew was going home didn’t go. The bottom three were: Naima, Karen and Hayley. And the first one sent to safety was … Naima! She was the one I’d picked to go home.

So it came down to Hayley and Karen … and Hayley was safe. Karen was left to fight for the judge’s save. She chose to sing "Hero." Her performance was good but not good enough. Two weeks in and so far, none of the guys has graced the bottom three. What does that mean? I don’t know. Does it mean anything? I don’t know that either.

It means that, as always, the ITGF is in full effect -- Idiot Teenage Girl Factor. "Oh my God, oh my God Paul is so CUTE! Vote for Paul! I don't care if he sucks...just do it!" Teenage girls should have their phones and Internet taken away by an act of Congress. THEN we'd see the most talented stick around the longest. Idiots...

Okay, having been a teenage girl, I can see that working for James and maybe even Stefano but Paul? I think Paul would be more of the IGWF - the Idiot Grown Woman Factor! LOL! I don't see a lot of teens being into him. I'd say the same for Casey, not the teen girl type ... then again maybe teen girls have changed since my day.

I don't think Jacob would benefit from either ITGF or IGWF unless teen girls and grown women have their gaydar turned all the way off!
