March 21, 2007: "Belt It. Cinch It. Ruche It." Season 6, Episode 23

I went to a TV Guide party last night instead of watching AI in real time. TV Guide hosted the "Sexiest Stars" party at Bar Marmont in Hollywood. (You can pick up the "hot" issue on newsstands Friday.) I spent quite a bit of time joking around with Jesse Spencer from House, asking where his fiancée " J-Mo" was. He was a good sport and referred to himself as "J-Spo". I said it wouldn't sell, but he is sexy. My good friends, after last night, we are tight. There were a lot of cuties. Shemar Moore, Eric Mabius, Mandy Patinkin... I cannot name them all. (That last one was a joke - tee-hee - but I love the M-Po!) I met a guy at the party who voted for Sanjaya over 30 times just to mess up the competition. I wanted to hate him, but he was so nice I had to push my feelings of anger aside. However, this sort of sabotage makes a farce out of the competition, and as easy as it is to make fun of the contestants, you want people there who are at least worthy of the title. A fight is only as good as its opponents. Back to the show: Peter Noone sang "There's a Kind of Hush," originally sung by him and his Hermits. It was a step up from the "Up with People" nonsense we normally have to listen to. To Andrea, who said reading my blog was like we were talking on the phone, I say, "Dudette, what was up with Peter?" Fox saved some marketing dollars and stuck Brad Garrett in the vacant 12th seat, both filling the seat I could have taken and promoting Brad's hit series. Ryan sent Brad home first and then asked Phil, Melinda and Blake to stand and told them, "You are not the bottom three." I was wrong again; Phil is not going home. Ryan asked Sligh, LaKisha and Jordin to stand and they were through. Then, he asked Gina, Haley and Sanjaya to stand and told them they were not the bottom three. I was beside myself and wished that the guy I met at the party who mercilessly voted for Sanjaya was here so that I could smack him upside the head. Then Stephanie and my boyfriend Chris were asked to stand. They had to wait for Lulu to sing her most famous song before hearing which one of them was a going home! And I thought, "Wow! Total upset!" Lulu sang "To Sir with Love" ( this is why, Wendy, no one else sang it on the performance show). Ryan is going to break one of their hearts. He says, "after 30 million votes" Chris R. is staying! Yippee! Stephanie goes home. (That's a bit of a bummer.) And a shot of Chris' family included Alaina Alexander. Alaina is in Chris' family? I'll bet she's not even in his "five". Stephanie is a far better singer than Sanjaya and it is an unfair universe that lets him stay when there is so much talent on that stage. I will rest up for next week and see whether I can get a handle on who will be next to go home. If you've got any picks, please, let me in on them. 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.
