Blake Lewis and Chris Richardson by Frank Micelotta/Fox Blake Lewis and Chris Richardson by Frank Micelotta/Fox

In Wednesday night's double elimination on American Idol, Phil Stacey (who should've known he was in trouble when he was asked to sing a number by a hair band) and Chris Richardson finally got sent home. Which makes sense, right? I've thrown away paper towels that are more charismatic than poor Phil, and Chris... come on. The only time the bargain-bin J.T. has hit the right note has been with his stylist. This leaves the newly brunette Blake Lewis as the last contestant to represent the male of the species. Sputter, man! Sputter and hiccup and do that spitting thing you do like your life depends on it!

UPDATE: OK, it needs to be asked: Who is your current favorite to win American Idol? Vote here.
