February 28, 2007: "Utterly Flopless" Season 6, Episode 15

Tonight, the ladies and the Peanut Gallery return for an encore visit. Since Sundance finally brought his game back, the gals are really going to have to give it up tonight. Before we even start, here are my predictions: Someone is going to mangle X-tina, Lakisha is going to bring the house down and the "S" girls are going to wow us. Sabrina will hopefully sing something jazzy and Stephanie definitely will. OK, having now watched the show, the "S" girls did bring it, and the mangling was of Celine, thanks to Antonella. Now the "A" girls are in serious trouble and on to the show. This week we are in the process of trimming the numbers from 20 to 16, and it can't be done quickly enough for me. I'm already counting the top six. Gina started it off for us. Girl, red is definitely your color. Gina sang "Alone" by Heart. I liked her and it was a good choice of song, but not so much an American Idol performance. Simon thought she would never be able to out-sing some of the other girls. Paula made a funny when she sarcastically commented, "Do take fashion advice from Simon." It was one of the funniest things she has ever said. Poor Alaina dedicated her song to her mom and sang "I'm Not Ready to Make Nice" by the Dixie Chicks. She's ruined the song for me. She was still off-key. The judges agreed. She stuck her tongue out at Randy when he made it clear he did not care for her singing. The PG absolutely hated those words (from the song) coming out of her mouth. (She's a huge Dixie Chicks fan and knows what the song is really about.) Lakisha sang Gladys Knight's "Midnight Train to Georgia," and though it was maybe not the best song to showcase her voice, she's still in another league above most of the other competitors. Simon thinks she is a phenomenal singer with bad fashion sense. The PG agreed with Simon that the outfit was a tad inappropriate. But she knows a good singer when she hears one. The fantastic Melinda sang "My Funny Valentine" to her "Gails." I got more chills than when Lakisha sang last week. Melinda has already won No. 1 this week, if you ask me and the Peanut Gallery! Melinda "came out here tonight to win it." We thought she gave a flawless performance and that her phrasing was phenomenal. Even Simon gushed, "That was incredible." PG: I'd pay money to see her. PSP: Antonella - what is she wearing? PG: The Pucci scarf. PSP: She terrorized "Because You Loved Me" by Celine, was off-key in the first four measures and, come to think of it, all of the rest of them. PG: She's got nothing. Nothing. I got a crick in my neck when she did that note because it hurt so much. I like her ring, though. Randy liked her looks but not her voice. Did you see her face when Simon told her it wasn't good? It was like, "What do you know, you old British fop." Jordin sang an old Whitney (??) song. She has a beautiful voice, though it was a little pitchy. Her emotions got in the way of her singing, but we love her anyway. Randy slyly threw in that he is a record producer, (we'll assume due to being questioned so many times about why he is there and what his credentials are). Simon liked Jordin, saying she has "massive potential." We like when Jordin slinks down to Ryan's height. PG: How tall is he, anyway? Stephanie sang MJ Blige? No, it was Beyoncé's "Dangerously in Love." I think she's a way better singer than Beyoncé. I thought she was hot! But the PG did not agree. PG: She's gasping after every line. Leslie Hunt to sing Nina? Oh, no. Not sure I'm ready for that. OK, the outfit was cute but completely wrong. PG: Cyndi Lauper, check your closet, you've been robbed! She promised not to flop around on stage and scatted instead. Simon joked that it "sounded like Paula speaking." Paula thought it was pretty funny for Simon, and likened her to ice cream. Simon took it one step further and said that she was the vanilla to Melinda, Lakisha and Stephanie's raspberry swirl. Pickle comments were tossed about, too. PSP: Ice cream and pickles? Is someone pregnant? Haley over-curled her eyelashes. "Queen of the Night" was her song choice and, though it was better than last week, it was nothing special. She really has no business singing Whitney or Celine or god forbid, X-tina. PG: I so hate jeans tucked into boots that I might be physically sick. Simon thought that Haley intentionally arranged the song to have more background than lead vocals and that it was "manic verging on insane." (Then she looked at Simon with that, "What do you know, you old British fop" look she borrowed from Antonella.) Simon suggested that Haley was one of the vulnerable ones this week. Sabrina sang Whitney, too. ("He feels me up" - are these the words? I know it's, "He fills me up," but it's funnier my way.) I thought she was a little bit of a screamer, and Simon said the same. However, she easily rose above most of the other girls. PG: "A" is for "Asta la vista, baby." See you, Antonella and Alaina. And Leslie is running a close third. PSP: I'll agree with the "A" team, but think Haley was just a half step better than them and would be my alternate loser. Top performance tonight was Melinda, by a landslide. Lakisha was fantastic, and I think Sabrina is really running a close third. I think Sabrina is the next American Idol. Look, Melinda and Lakisha are really too good and don't need it. Stephanie also is fabulous, but Sabrina is the perfect model of an American Idol. We plan to vote off the island the following: Girls - The "A" Team (see above) Boys - Nick and Sanjaya So, there. Be back tomorrow for America's results. 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.
