MAY 2, 2007

Last night was a great show… too bad it was a year late (‘cause Chris Daughtry would have CLEANED UP), too bad Gina Glocksen was only in the audience, and too bad it won’t count anyway…

What do I mean, you ask? These votes will only be a drop in the bucket compared to last week… Idol’s been averaging about 28-30 million votes a week, and last week, they got 70 million votes. Whatever last night’s outcome was, it will be totally swallowed by last week’s totals. And they are combining the two; so really, we’re still dealing with last week…

Everyone was good last night… well, everybody except Jordin Sparks. She sang “Living On A Prayer”, and it’s a good thing she was phenomenal last week, because she wouldn’t have done herself any favors this week.

The best, though… Blake Lewis, he is in it to win it. He was great singing “You Give Love A Bad Name”. And Lakisha Jones also finally listened to someone, stopped shouting, and did well with “This Ain’t A Love Song”.

So here’s the official prediction… Same bottom 3 as last week… Phil Stacey, Chris Richardson, and Lakisha Jones. I’ll say Chris Richardson and Lakisha Jones will be out, but she did well enough this week, that Phil may face elimination in her place.

JD Roberto, host of American Idol Extra, will give us the dish from backstage tomorrow at 7:20!

Former “Cheers” mailman John Ratzenberger and his professional partner, Edyta Sliwinska, were voted off “Dancing With The Stars” last night. Paulina Porizkove, Shandi Finnessey, Leeza Gibbons, Clyde Drexler and Heather Mills have already been eliminated. Billy Ray Cyrus, Ian Ziering, Joey Fatone, Laila Ali and Apolo Anton Ohno remain. Each will perform two dances on Monday’s show.

Boy, we had you STUMPED this morning... We sped up one of Celine Dion's songs and let you figure out which one it was to qualify for that Vegas getaway... After several attempts and lots of head scratching (and a couple REALLY BIG hints), Kristen Goree figured it out... "Have You Ever Been In Love"...
