the execution must go on...

Another one is gonna bite the dust tonight (oh stop it...I couldn't help myself) after last evening's semi-assassination of the Queen songbook.

My favorite moments of the evening:

I am still cracking up at Brian May looking Ace straight in the eye and refusing to "bastardize" the arrangement of his song just to satisfy an American Idol contestant. American Idol contestant v. composer of song. Gee. I wonder which one knows best.

Secondary favorite moment: Paula actually using the word bastardize.

Giggles still go to Taylor missing the mic stand kick, and, instead of just saying "screw it", getting mad and kicking it again. He should have picked it up and broken it over his knee. Or found Ace and bashed it into his head. Whichever. Either would have been fun.

I gotta give thumbs up to Bucky for singing Fat Bottomed Girls on American Idol, the show that just two seasons ago would not let Amy Adams use the term "mattress dancing."

And I'm not going to forget Randy telling the voters, after Chris' performance, to "forget the song!" and that "half of these kids don't know what they're singing" anyway. This from the man who has "song choice" tattooed on his forearm.

From the mood on the the comment thread, the one who should be executed tonight is clear.
Nigel isn't giving us any kind of "shocker" talk today either, but he is giving us a sneak peek at tonight's festivities, including the promise of a group medley! Dial Idol has Ace and Bucky as the projected bootees, both of them clearly behind the others who are bunched in a middle pack behind Taylor and Pickler.

So the choice of a bottom two is clear. The dilemma is who to stick in the third spot. Chris landing on the seal is a distinct possibility, and would probably be the best thing for him, to shake the eyeliner off and, like Bo last year, to remind him that he's not a lock to win.

Oh the dilemma...

Who I want: Ace, Pickler, Chris (Ace)
Who should: Ace, Bucky, Katharine (Ace)
Who will: Ace, Bucky, Katharine

Ace, pack up your ego, your falsetto and grab your cute brother. And we'll see you for the Brady Bunch pointy pose performance at the finale.

Do you want Chris in the bottom three so he snaps out of his 'funk', or do you really think he was one of the worst?

Just curious.

going home? Bucky...or Ace either way I do not care LOL!

Chris is getting boring and predictable. He needs a good swift kick in the butt. Or he needs to go. A kick in the butt might be good for him.
