Does anyone really win?

After using the “only save of the season” to keep Big Mike last week, 2 contestatns will leave us THIS week. So what’s the point? It doesnt give US anything, it only really benefits the guy on the chopping block. It’s weird, and I dont like it. There, I said it.

The only benefit, is that this season, there are a few people I wouldnt mind losing each week…and they are all still here! So tonight, theres another chance to oust 2 of them. Odds are, one of the two that will leave us could have benefitted from a “save”…but that’s another story.

Here’s a recap of the night:

Crystal Bowersox: Remember when I said Beatles week was HER night? Well, Elvis night might also have been HER night. There’s one problem…and it may just be a temporary thing…but I have to be honest. I didnt LOVE her last night. Her voice sounded a bit abrasive and harsh… am I wrong? You know I’m on the Bowersox Bandwagon…but tonight shouldve blown me away and it didnt. sorry.

Lee Dewyze: Still loving him. He took on “Little Less Conversation”, and his voice totally took it to a new rock level. He is radio-ready, his performance lacks the schmultz usually necessary to win this show. He was my favourite of the night, solid, creative, in tune and professional.

Aaron: I am really done with this boy. His performance of Blue Suede Shoes was corny, unoriginal and awkward. 2 people are leaving tonight…that is two chances to get rid of this guy. please.

Casey James: two steps forward…one step back. Tonight, he went back to his “bar singer” roots, and it did nothing for him. Last week he gained some real momentum, this week he reverted back to the ponytail (release the beautiful golden locks!) and sang “lawdy miss clawdy” (not exactly the most memorable Elvis song…). I wanted to love him, but I just didnt.

Tim Urban: This year’s Sanjaya. Not brutal enough to get the axe. Not good enough to get behind . Cute enough to be a contender. He sang a ballad to his 14 yar old fans keeping him in this competition- a great move on his part, he knows his audience.

Andrew Garcia: Lost his “cool” again (He keeps leaving it in Hollywood week…) I think he may have lost it for good this time. He was in the bottom last week, and he did nothing unique or different this week to revive his audience. Even Adam Lambert (the mentor)  said it was boring….ouch.

Siobhan: Could be Adam Lamberts long lost secret sibling…or a weird hybrid of him and Lady Gaga. She looked fantastic- she’s a star. I actually really enjoyed her performance of” Suspicious Minds” (my favourite Elvis song) but she got some so-so reviews from the judges. They better be careful, or she may be the shocker in the bottom three. We know she’s unique and odd…so her fans must be loud and proud to keep her in a competition that thrives on the “mass appeal”.

Big Mike: Good thing he stuck around…because he was great tonight. Sitting with a guitar singing a soulful rendition of “In the Ghetto”- a great song. I doubt he’ll be back in the bottom this week…that save probably bought him 3 or 4 weeks! Deal!

Katie: Is really mediocre. I mean, she sings well…but she’s the female version of Tim. She could have mass appeal (because she’s THAT beige) but she pales in comparison to others on this show. She decided to ignore Lambert’s advice to amke her voice sound grittier and angry…which wouldve helped.
