I’m ready to call this competition. I don’t care if there are like 100 more weeks of eliminations or if Big Mike (who sang Maxwell’s This Woman’s Work) made Kara cry like Paula used to do every time she ran out of pills. That mullet kid has some skills (he sang Ray LaMontagne’s Trouble), but he has … a mullet. Cut the hair and cut him, I don’t care which one happens first. Sure Didi sounded pretty good last night (she sang Fleetwood Mac’s Rhiannon) and Siobhan Magnus is bat-shit crazy (and proved it by singing the Animals’ House of the Rising Sun), and I love them both, but sorry — they’re just not gunna win.
So the winners are: Lee DeWyze and Crystal Bowersox! I don’t really care about anyone else. They’re the best … they can just split the Ford car in half with a chainsaw and the share record deal (featuring some awful song that Kara pulls out of her ass about going from nothing to superstar). Let’s just end the competition (I’ll get 1000’s of hours of my life back!) and call it right now! They won! Yay!
So what’d they sing this week? Super sexy stoner Lee DeWyze sang the cheesiest pop song on the radio right now: Owl City’s Fireflies … and it sounded … great! Anyone that can make that drivel sound great deserves to win a silly new Ford! Dirty hippy Crystal Bowersox sang Tracy Chapman’s Give Me One Reason, and do I even need to tell you how good it was? I do? Well it was really, really good.
So am I as crazy as Siobhan? Or did I get it right? What do you think?! Take the poll and sound off in the comments!
