February 22, 2007: "So Long, Farewell, Auf Wiedersehen, Good Night" Season 6, Episode 13

As if this week can't get any worse, they make the contestants all sing together. I can't watch them sow "The Seeds of Love." I loved Tears for Fears, but like, in the '80s. This is like watching Up With People and not nearly as fun. Frankly, 90 percent of these kids should go on tour with them. And then they go straight to the first cut. (Thank God.) Highlights: - Sundance... What? - JT-alike! Go baby!!! He's safe, he's safe, he's safe, he's safe, he's safe! - Nick stays the course. I don't get it. - Blake, of course, is safe. He sang Keane, for pete's sake. - Paul is going home. Although I am a little surprised, I think it was the barefoot thang. - Surprised as heck that Sanjaya didn't get cut, but Rudy needed to go home, too. - Simon actually looked uncomfortable while Ryan gave the girls the news. - America let Antonella stay. - Amy, who was likened to a candle, was sent home. - Nicole screeched her way through her goodbye song. Oh, right, the loser sings. That sucks, having to sing after getting voted off the island. I find I cannot watch any of them, as each performance is as bad as the first night. And to top it all off, they have to sing knowing they are flying home. Good riddance. (I know, so coldhearted, but five hours of this? Look, a blogger can only take so much!) I'm concerned about Lakisha, and here's why. She is so up here (see my hand way over my head), and everyone else is so down here (see my hand low, low, low), and I wonder if people will just vote for the underdogs. Don't get me wrong, I love Lakisha, and I think she's hands-down the most talented contestant. But I almost feel like voting her off so that the playing field is more level. It's just not fair at this point. I think she'll make it far, but it will be interesting to see what happens. Former Idol winner, Fantasia, performed a song from The Color Purple, the Broadway play she's about to star in. She's got a little Eve-esque tattoo over her right pec. Quincy Jones, who I believe must be the producer of the play, is in the audience. And Ryan cuts him off mid-sentence. Real classy, Ryan. They've got a very strange lineup of musical coaches coming: Lulu and Peter Noone (I don't even know what to say about that), J.Lo, Tony Bennett (yeah!), Diana Ross, Jon Bon Jovi, Gwen Stefani. I need the weekend to recuperate. See you all back here next week. Boys on Tuesday. show less

Premise: The smash reality series showcases wannabe pop stars competing for a record deal by crooning for a panel of judges, including, most entertainingly, the acid-tongued Simon Cowell, who departed the show in 2010 after serving for nine seasons. The judges review a performer's talent (or lack thereof), and at-home viewers then vote for their favorite potential star. The show helped launch the careers of such artists as Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Jennifer Hudson and Adam Lambert.
