Ryan, Melinda, Goof: Idol Chatter

I had someone end up at this blog by the search phrase, "Ryan accidentally says Melinda going home." I think I might be able to clarify this.

Right before one of American Idol's 10,000 breaks, Ryan said, "After the break, Melinda goes home." I actually rewound (if that's the correct term) my DVR to see if I heard that right. That is, in fact, what Ryan said. However, he was referring to Melinda's video montage of her trip back to her hometown rather than her eventual elimination. Along with her "death" dress, I took this as a bad omen.

Regarding Melinda actually going home, I posted that I thought this would happen last week so I was a bit early. I don't believe all the stories about the show being "fixed" but I do tend to believe conspiracy theories and the surprise results on this show do seem to be pretty predictable

Although I think Blake and Jordin will make a more interesting finale, with most of Melinda's votes probably going to Jordin, I doubt that it will be a very close vote.

Stat counters. We know where you liveeeee. :) Muahahaaa.

Laurie, I am so bored with Idol this year. I think Blake is probably a nice guy and all, but something about him makes me not like him as a pop artist. I don't know. I will be happier if Jordin wins.

Jen - Jordin should definitely win. It'll be a real shocker if she doesn't.

I have NEVER seen an episode of American Idol until this season. I think there are two reasons for that 1) there is NOTHING on TV over here except for National Geographic and Discovery Channel and 2) it keeps me somehow connected to home. Anyway...I liked Melinda. I loved her version of "Trouble is a Woman". But now that she's gone I think Jordan should/will win.

Texas Gal - This wasn't the best season for you to start watching. I still enjoyed it though. I miss Sanjaya. :)
