Elimination Night

By Michele

Coming up.

Oh yay. Fantasia.

I think this is the only song she's come up with in a year. And has she put out a record? Anyone heard from her? Or has she been relegated to the daytime talk show circuit and AI related functions?

I hate these commercial/songs.

I cannot look at Scott without breaking out in hives.

And here we go.

Nikko: Whoa, bottom three right away. He did blow last night.

WHAT? What the hell is wrong with you people. Vonzell does NOT belong in the bottom three. You people SUCK. SUCK.

Well at fucking last. Scott in the bottom.

But the bottom three right away? That's weird.


Oh shut UP Paula.

YESSS Vonzell is safe!

And why wasn't Federov in the bottom three? I guess Faith was right...Federov has indeed over played the poor sick immigrant card, but probably not to the poor sick immigrant population.

Pleasepleaseplease let Scott go.

What. The. Fuck.

This is so wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong.

No batteries for anyone. No dignity, either.

For everyone who voted for Scott: YOu should be ashamed of yourselves.

I jsut wanna poke Constantine in the eye.

Yes. With two sharp sticks.

Posted by: Ian S. at April 6, 2005 09:05 PM

Is Fantasia actually doing well on her own?

Posted by: Faith at April 6, 2005 09:05 PM

That was terrible.

Posted by: kat at April 6, 2005 09:08 PM

What the hell was that she just sang? And she sold over a million? I don't believe it...

Posted by: Frank at April 6, 2005 09:09 PM

Bo couldn't give a shit about what she has to say. He made me laugh.

Posted by: kat at April 6, 2005 09:09 PM

am I the only one who thought she sounded like a dying cat?

Posted by: Lyn at April 6, 2005 09:10 PM

I don't know which frightened me more...the Fantasia performance itself. Or the boots.

Posted by: robyn at April 6, 2005 09:10 PM

I didn't watch last season - was she really the best? I'd hate to hear the losers then.

Posted by: Ian S. at April 6, 2005 09:11 PM

Can anyone tell me what the words "yeshterday" and "shmile" mean?

I've never liked Fantasia--I think she has the whiniest sounding voice ever, and I can't believe she won. LaToya should have won last season, hands down.

Posted by: Amanda at April 6, 2005 09:11 PM

If you people think THAT was scary, you should hear another cut off her album...a heartfelt paean to all the single mothers out there called (I shit you not) "Baby Mama". Here's the Amazon link for her album...scroll down and listen to it. I triple dog dare you.

Posted by: Sekimori at April 6, 2005 09:13 PM

YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by: kat at April 6, 2005 09:14 PM

Vonzell in the bottom 3? WTF?

Posted by: Ian S. at April 6, 2005 09:14 PM

Holy shit....who woulda guessed....

Posted by: kat at April 6, 2005 09:15 PM

WTF is wrong with America?!?!?! Vonzell?!?!?!

Posted by: Faith at April 6, 2005 09:15 PM

yeah, I've heard that one.. *shudder*

wth is with Vonzell in the bottom 3?

Posted by: Lyn at April 6, 2005 09:15 PM

Ian, will you marry me?

Posted by: Faith at April 6, 2005 09:15 PM

Holy moly! Nikko, Vonzell, and Scott?

Posted by: Ian S. at April 6, 2005 09:15 PM

Wow. They just got right to it. Thank god.

Posted by: kat at April 6, 2005 09:15 PM

Faith: if Vonzell gets voted off she gets first shot ;)

Posted by: Ian S. at April 6, 2005 09:16 PM

Uh, no thanks Seki. Really.

Ian, she was NOT the best last year. I think it was a fluke that she won.

Posted by: michele at April 6, 2005 09:16 PM

Michele: She was, however, the best PERFORMER.

Posted by: Sekimori at April 6, 2005 09:17 PM

Vonzell should be heading back... after the break...

And we get to say buh-bye to Scott

Posted by: Frank at April 6, 2005 09:17 PM

*sigh* it's gotta be between Scott and Nikko. No WAY they'll send Vonzell packing.

Posted by: Lyn at April 6, 2005 09:18 PM

Can't blame you Ian, I'm no Vonzell! For which I thank goodness every time Matty comments here.

Posted by: Faith at April 6, 2005 09:18 PM

Vonzell? What crack pipe have you been smoking, America?!

Posted by: Broken Fiction at April 6, 2005 09:18 PM

Oh pleasepleasepleasepleasepleasepleaseplease
let Scott be voted off!

Posted by: Amanda at April 6, 2005 09:18 PM

I'm actually glad to be wrong about my pick tonight...IF Scott goes. If...

Posted by: robyn at April 6, 2005 09:18 PM

I watched just enough of last season to realize that America is full of idiots.

This season isn't giving me much more hope than last season.

Posted by: kat at April 6, 2005 09:18 PM

ever wonder if the voting is a bunch of crap? Like they want you to THINK your vote counts but really doesn't mean sh*t? The winner is already pre-chosen? (forgive me - I read into everything)

Posted by: Lyn at April 6, 2005 09:20 PM

Anthony thanks his "fans" for keeping him there. I hate him even more now. He's rising to Constantine levels of ick.

Okay, that was over the top. But why, why, why is he not there while Vonzell is?!

Posted by: Doug at April 6, 2005 09:20 PM

I know it's a rules violation, but I think everyone should get batteries anyway if Scott goes.

Posted by: Ian S. at April 6, 2005 09:20 PM

I cant believe she is bottom 3 but shes goin back .. she HAS to be going back!

Posted by: Caryss at April 6, 2005 09:21 PM

Oh please please please be Scott.

Posted by: Ian S. at April 6, 2005 09:23 PM

Gotta be the wife beater. Gotta be. Gotta be!

Posted by: Faith at April 6, 2005 09:23 PM

Buh Bye Scott... Cya, wouldn't want to be ya :-)

Posted by: Frank at April 6, 2005 09:23 PM

Scott has to be gone. With everything that happened, (thank you SmokingGun) he has to be gone.

Posted by: kat at April 6, 2005 09:24 PM

I knew it. Now its Scott's turn ... one woman beater comin up

Posted by: Caryss at April 6, 2005 09:24 PM

Vonzell stays, so things aren't that screwed up. And more importantly, Scott still might go!

Posted by: Doug at April 6, 2005 09:25 PM

Ewwww, why would want to get batteries while thinking about Scott?

Posted by: Amanda at April 6, 2005 09:25 PM

I'm hot this week, Mich. I got two of the bottom three. And I FEEL my batteries on the way. ;)

Posted by: Faith at April 6, 2005 09:25 PM

Amanda wins the prize for best comment of the evening.

Posted by: Faith at April 6, 2005 09:26 PM

CanNOT believe America put Vonzell in the bottom three. Thank the Lord she was safe - I wasn't crazy about her at first, but I think she gets better every week. Please, please...let it be Scott!

Posted by: Kelley at April 6, 2005 09:27 PM

It's painful to listen to him speak.

Just get rid of him already.

Posted by: kat at April 6, 2005 09:28 PM

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Posted by: Kelley at April 6, 2005 09:28 PM

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by: kat at April 6, 2005 09:28 PM

No F'ing way....

Posted by: Frank at April 6, 2005 09:28 PM

Aww, suck. Nikko leaves again.

Posted by: Ian S. at April 6, 2005 09:28 PM

WHAT?!?!?!?!?!?!??!

Posted by: Faith at April 6, 2005 09:28 PM

America is MESSED up .. bunch of women beater lovers

Posted by: Caryss at April 6, 2005 09:29 PM

JINX!

Posted by: kat at April 6, 2005 09:29 PM

Sum'bitch!

Posted by: robyn at April 6, 2005 09:29 PM

5{peat CANNOT, believe that Scott and Anthony are still here! I have lost all faith in America's voting, especially after listening to Fantasia sing (and talk for goodness sake--she can't even speak correctly). I can't believe she was the winner last year. She was awful. I really wonder what the demographics are of the people who call into vote......This is so upsetting.

Posted by: Melinda at April 6, 2005 09:45 PM

Behold the power of the fat-and-ugly vote, young Jedis.

Posted by: Tanya at April 6, 2005 09:51 PM

Well, looks like the trailer-park, wife-beating contingent managed to pull Scotty through again this week. WTF?!?!?!

Looks like some people are following 'Tasia's advice to "get ugly!" Herself included!

Posted by: Mel at April 7, 2005 12:41 AM

Wow it's pretty amazing that Vonzell was in the bottom 3. She was the second best last night(alongside Consatntine of course). Nikko left again(that sounds funny). Anthony totally should of been in the bottom 3. That move that Anthony did in that video was so wrong. I think that was the best video but Anthony's move.....ICK!!He's trying to be sexy(hello!!never can).

Posted by: LuverUvAmericanIdol at April 7, 2005 12:58 AM

"am I the only one who thought she sounded like a dying cat?"

Not just any dying cat. A cat being killed with a band saw.

Posted by: Impacted Wisdom Truth at April 7, 2005 02:58 AM

Fantasia wasn't singing. She was doing something.. but singing wasn't it. I couldn't wait for it to be over.

I didn't particularly like his performance last night, so I'm glad that Nikko went. Though, I Didn't like him or Scott much, so I would have been happy if either of them went.

Posted by: Nikki at April 7, 2005 03:15 AM

That was the worst American Idol, I've seen. Nikko should not have gone home, he was heads and shoulders better then Scott, Anthony, and Nadia for that matter. Don't even get me started on Fantasia- it looks like fame has gone straight to her hips. She sounded awful and looked terrible. I just hope Constantine or Carrie wins, they are the only worthy ones, maybe Anwar as well. I'm very disappointed and will stick to watching shows like "The Amazing Race" where their preformance actually matters.

Posted by: jeni at April 7, 2005 08:55 AM

Let's see... on one hand there's Nikko, on the other there's Scott:

One is easy on the eyes, can dance to the beat, brings a modern and original feel to his performances, is well-spoken and comes from a unique, interesting background.

The other hit every single branch on his long fall from the ugly-tree, beats women, brings zero creativity to the table and couldn't even spell enunciate.

So obviously, Nikko had to go. I'm a firm believer that no black man with any kind of sex-appeal will ever win this show. Anwar, however, may have a shot.

Posted by: Hal at April 7, 2005 09:52 AM

If we're going to talk about sex appeal...then Nikko shouldn't even be in the room. Short, toad-like, and so very full of himself because his FATHER had a pretty good major league career. And Anwar...I wouldn't let him in my bedroom because I'd fear the wholesale theft of my clothing and shoes.

Posted by: Sekimori at April 7, 2005 10:21 AM

No one - on the male side - has sex appeal. There's not a one of them I would invite into my bedroom. For shoe stealing or otherwise.

Posted by: michele at April 7, 2005 10:28 AM

I liked Fantasia last year, but last night was a mess!! It looked like she was throwing a tantrum, not singing a song!! I almost FF'd through her whole performance (thank God for DVRs!). I'd like to hear Simon's comments about that!! And while I got 2 of 3 correct for the bottom 3, my top #1 choice to go home (Scott) was safe. Very frustrating and disappointing. And Vonzell should never have been in the bottom 3 last night...okay, I'm voting for her next week...

Posted by: Janet at April 7, 2005 10:32 AM

Re: Anwar, rumor has it that he is gay (not that there's anything wrong with that). http://www.realityblurred.com/realitytv/archives/american_idol_4/2005_Mar_30_anwar_ad

Posted by: Janet at April 7, 2005 10:36 AM

Re: bedroom invites, I'd take Bo any day!! He's FOXXXXYYYYY!

Posted by: Janet at April 7, 2005 10:37 AM

My point was that Anwar has no sex-appeal, so he may win.

Posted by: Hal at April 7, 2005 11:25 AM

Actually, I think there are only two people left with any sex-appeal at all: Bo and Nadia. Carrie's cute, but it would be like humping a 'real doll'.

Posted by: Hal at April 7, 2005 11:29 AM

"Carrie's cute, but it would be like humping a 'real doll'."

And you would know this, how?

Posted by: michele at April 7, 2005 11:33 AM

I took Sekimori's triple-dog-dare. Dirty rotten trick! They had to thend out the fire truckths and everything to unthstick my partially frozen auditory cortex.

Posted by: SarahW at April 7, 2005 12:00 PM

Didn't come here to fight. I just think Carrie is almost, but not quite, a real girl.

Posted by: Hal at April 7, 2005 12:07 PM

I couldn't believe the results last night. Who in the WORLD would have voted for Scott? Or Anthony? Not only does Anthony suck but... he sucks.

Posted by: Mary at April 7, 2005 02:31 PM

Hal, you mean like the Stepford Idol? I think you have a point. (Maybe that's what Simon was getting at with his soap-flakes reference.) But supposedly she's a country girl so she's mostly been singing out-of-genre; maybe that has something to do with it. Anyway, she's got the best pipes in the competition, so I don't want her going anywhere anytime soon.

Posted by: Patrick at April 7, 2005 03:30 PM

Patrick, yes, that's a much better analogy (and much less likely to draw snarky comments). I agree whole-heartedly. That girl can sing!

Posted by: Hal at April 7, 2005 04:13 PM

It's our party and we'll snark if we want to...

Posted by: Faith at April 7, 2005 04:26 PM

Yes...but please keep in mind that "Snarky had a party, and nobody came." It's no fun to snark alone (unless you have batteries)! ;-)

Posted by: Janet at April 7, 2005 04:48 PM

You guys who are hating against Scott need to shut the hell up. You have never been in an arguement and wanted to sling something at the other person. What the hell. It's didn't say he hit the damn girl. You take a story and then twist the shit out of it. He was charged with disorderly conduct no for domestic violence or a "WifeBeater" as some idiots are putting.
Next is Fantasia what the hell was the problem wit her performance? Just because you don't understand what her music is about doesn't mean that it's not good music and someone else won't like it. You have to be a very uneducated group of people. And obviously some of you don't know what it means to be a Baby Mamma. If you did then you would know the meaning of the song. Don't be hating on someone cause they are doing something more than you are. That is just ignorant.
Last, it didn't take a rocket scientist to realize that Anwar was gay. So what? If your not the one sleeping with him, leave him the hell alone. You people have lots of nerve and problem don't have a pot to piss in. You probably don't know what the means either, it's like he Baby Mamma thing.

Posted by: Gina at April 8, 2005 02:05 PM

For your information, I happen to be a Software Engineer with 2 degrees, so bite me about not being intelligent! This blog, for me anyway, is about having fun, where things are not taken so seriously. There are much more serious issues in the world than to get your panties in a wad about AI contestants! I don't like Scott and think he's a chump...that's my opinion. Most people don't have ANY domestic abuse records...think about that...so he did something. Whatever. Even if he was the most honorable guy in the world, I don't like him or his negative attitude. I do like Fantasia; I voted for her all last season; I did not like her performance on Wednesday. I did not think it was her best. Forgive me for not knowing "street slang"...not my world, if you know what I mean. Lighten up, "G"!

Posted by: Janet at April 8, 2005 02:14 PM

Hey Gina, so if I took a phone and threw it at you and it hit you, that's not a violent act? Now we KNOW the type of person who votes for an untalented boring fat ass guy like scott.. Anytime I have trouble sleeping I just remember him droning on and on and zzzzzzzzzzzz

Posted by: jen at April 8, 2005 02:52 PM

Gina - and I am only saying that because I care - there's a lot of decaffeinated brands on the market that are just as tasty as the real thing.

Posted by: robyn at April 8, 2005 02:56 PM

For the record "I Believe" is the worst song I've ever heard. IT's bland and boring (like Scott), it sounds like some high school rah rah song and even though I did like Fantasia, her performance the other night turned me off big time. She screeched and pronounced her "s" like "sh" and that irks me.

Posted by: jen at April 8, 2005 03:26 PM

Fantasia should have performed another song; I've heard "I Believe" WAAAY too many times! I wouldn't mind hearing her sing "Summertime" again, but that's really mellow and old-fashioned, and they probably wanted something upbeat. Still, there are many other songs that (hopefully!) she would have sung better. I wonder if she had a sore throat or cold or something...her voice sounded really raspy, but it could be because she was screaming it and stomping around the stage instead of singing it.

Posted by: Janet at April 8, 2005 03:32 PM

I just heard (and it could be a rumor) but I just heard that Nadia is dating Scott. I also just threw up a little after hearing that.

Posted by: jen at April 8, 2005 03:35 PM

Ewwwww!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Why oh why oh why?? I hope it is just a rumor. Nadia, girlfriend, you've got it going on!!! You don't need to date white trash!!!!

Posted by: Janet at April 8, 2005 03:39 PM

...just stay the hell away from Bo and no one gets a phone hurled at them, okay?

Posted by: Janet at April 8, 2005 03:40 PM

Gina, you kinda lost me on your Scott riff when you referred to the woman he threw the phone at as "the damn girl." Know what I'm sayin'?

Oh, and if you're going to trash other people's education, you might want to pay a little more attention to those little details about your writing that provide clues about whether *your* the one to be judging. I'm not trying to start an *arguement,* but you seem like you *problem* have some issues of your own there.

I happen to like Fantasia, but off her performance on Wednesday, I'm very concerned that she is destroying her voice and will not last long enough as a singer to get a contract that will pay her a normal amount of money after 19 Entertainment is done paying her peanuts on the contract she won last year.

You're right about the "lots of nerve" part, though!

PS: if your boy Scott tries throwing a phone at Nadia, I don't think he'll have to worry anymore about people recognizing him from those old mug shots.

Posted by: Patrick at April 8, 2005 05:05 PM

Scott: creepy.
Vonzell: no way in the bottom three.
Federov: Zzz.
Constantine: the kind of guy i used to f*ck in college who afterward thought *he'd* gotten one over on *me*.
Bo: reincarnation of that guy from Blood Sweat and Tears.
Country-blondie: who cares.

Posted by: Nancy at April 8, 2005 08:39 PM

RE: Country-blondie: She will probably win the competition - obviously lots of people care! She's the only one left who doesn't have to try when she sings, it's natural. She's by far the best singer in this competition. And she's Simon pick to win, he's said it over and over.
The story of Nadia and Scott .. it's in tabloid magazines so it could be a rumor or it could be true. If she came to this website and read the things said about him she would think he beats women (he beat her, really?), he lives in a trailer park, he is white trash, and he has no talent. Where does everyone get their information from about these people?
Nikko ... short and toad like .. hmmm, intersting. If he is so full of himself because of his dad how come we haven't heard him talk about his "great daddy?" Now that I think about it I can't remember any time he has mentioned his dad or his dad's career or how great it is to be on AI because of his dad or how great I am because of who my dad is .. nothing. Nikko auditioned and ended up here just like everyone else - he's no more "full of himself" than any of the others.

Posted by: Lisa at April 10, 2005 08:32 PM

Mwah mwah mwah, mwah mwah mwah. I sweah, yuh like Chollie Brown's friggin' teacha.

Posted by: Sekimori at April 10, 2005 10:32 PM

Fantasia is a textbook, Southern baptist (maybe Church of God in Christ), black gospel singer. There's no "dying cat" in her voice. That is raw emotion in her voice. In fact, if you listen to the queen of soul herself (Arethea Franklin) and the legendary Tina Turner in their early days, you have Fantasia. The crowd wasn't faking it when they stood up while she was sinking. When you hear a live performance from a singer like Fantasia, you have to be either dead or crazy not to feel it.

Scott: SHOULD BE GONE BY NOW! Period.

Vonzell: Has this brutha's heart.

Nikko: Not gone this soon but has my respect for coming back strong.

Carrie: Why people find her so appealing is beyond me. She sounds ordinary.

Posted by: Solomon at April 11, 2005 02:22 PM

Uh oh... "sinking" should be "singing" in my above post so don't run with it. LOL!

Posted by: Solomon at April 11, 2005 02:23 PM

Solomon ... you have to be careful about spelling and grammar when you post here. Lots of "on edge" individuals that find it self gratifying to point out mistakes by others. Guess AI isn't the topic of discussion here anymore ... sad.

Posted by: Ecaroh at April 11, 2005 03:51 PM

Actually, I'd never pick on Solomon. He's intelligent life.

Posted by: michele at April 11, 2005 04:29 PM

Ecaroh, in case you hadn't noticed AI airs only two nights a week. Dumbfuckery, on the other hand, seems to be playing every single night, on every single channel. Thanks for playing!

Posted by: Sekimori at April 11, 2005 10:51 PM

But isn't this titled "Idol Tongues" using the American Idol logo? Sorry ... was mistaken. I agree, Solomon is very intelligent life. :)
