To no great surprise, Brooke White has been evicted from the Idol House… um… wait, wrong show. 🙂
She did get voted off. I think she does have a chance at a future as a lite-rock singer/songwriter. She won’t be Carly Simon, but she can try the same career path.
However, this means that it’s most likely that last night’s “Fearless Prediction #3” will be the one that’s wrong. Early prediction for week 9: Jason Castro’s going home. I can’t see the final three being all-male. And yes, I am hinting that the vote may be Florida-ized.
And now, to the real news. Paulagate got legs, didn’t it? Paula reviews either Jason’s dress rehearsal or the voices in her head, and all hell breaks loose. I prefer the simplest explanation. Paula’s been in a fog all season – she simply remembered the dress rehearsal and got thrown off by two changes in the running order during the show. The decision to drop the judges’ first comments was made just before showtime, then the “first-round summary” section was reinserted during the preceding commercial break by Fox’ Official Lunatic Sleazy Genius, Mike Darnell. So Paula was even more befuddled than any other week — apparently, that *is* possible.
And now into NASCAR Weekend here in Richmond, where it’s not safe to go anywhere unless you want to be joined by thousands of your new best friends… 🙂
