American Idol - The Phantom Librarian
Spewing out too many words since November 2003

American Idol
You know, this show kind of grows on you. I watched it casually at first because it was on, and I didn't have any fierce attachment to any of this year's contestants... but still, I was on the edge of my seat through every contrived extension of the results show.



There was only one candidate left that I would have actively voted against... and he was declared safe from the bottom three. Oh, well. That means in future weeks, there's still someone that I won't miss too much. So, there's still a use for Scott Savol. I can't put my finger on what it is about him I dislike, but he's the only one I actually do dislike.

I wasn't surprised to see Bo there this week; it just wasn't all that hot last night. But I'm glad he made it through. I wouldn't mind seeing a Bo-Constantine final... it'd be different, and hey, I'd love to see the two oldest contestants be the top two.

Nadia... man, I missed her performance last night, but she'd had so many good ones before it. I was really sad to see her go, actually. Props to her for not letting anyone iron her hair, though. After Jennifer last year, I was sure someone would try to make her do so. Not every woman can get away with a five inch high Afro, but for the women who can, it's a great look. And tonight's gown... wow. It made up for the fauxhawk hairdo from first week.

I feel a bit...: melancholy sigh....

Same here. I feel he puts out a negative vibe. I've felt that way about him since the very first auditions and never been able to shake it.

I'm with you on the Bo-Constantine final too and was thinking (er... daydreaming) about that this morning.

I didn't know it though. Something about him was just giving off a bad vibe.

I figured you were sensing that. In which case, you have a really good sense of intuition. :D

Thank heaven, yes. I can smell a creep a mile away in RL. I can't always do it via the media, but this guy makes my skin crawl.

I'd reaaaaaaaally like to know who's voting for Scott, because honestly? I think he should have gona a looooooooooooooooooong time ago.

Who is voting for him??? Who, sayeth I?????

I've been voting for Constatine and Carrie. Scott is scary. He sings well, but he really turns me off. He's too much like my son-in-law. So why does SCott survive?
DOn't you think Idol would be a more accurate show if the fans voted on who was the worst instead of the best?

I don't get it. I just don't get it.

Scott is TERRIBLE.

He's creepy and he beats his girlfriend. But that's what I dislike about him. :P

Creepy I picked up on. The girlfriend-beating is new information this week, and explains the creepy factor.

You know, I thought he was kind of cool when he first auditioned because it was like this amazing voice out of ... this ... guy. And perhaps I'm being tainted by Jacob over at TWoP but really, he is creepy and the domestic violence really doesn't help.

Scott will get the ax at some point but he probably has all of Cleveland or wherever he's from pulling for him.
