Ryan seemed a little less coked-up for tonight’s open, handing it off to the Top 6 for a medley that could have been called “Songs We Should Have Sung Last Night.” Except for one thing. This was truly terrible. A total mess. Bad singing, bad arrangements, bad sound mixing. Yikes.
The Ford music video, usually fairly cute, was also dreadful. This night is going into the tank.
But wait, here’s Crystal Bowersox, last year’s runner-up, back to show us what she’s got. I loved her last year, so it pained me to see that what she has is horrible material. Totally forgettable song, totally forgettable performance. But she has dropped a few pounds and done something about the teeth.
Results time. Finally, something watchable. But first, inane questions from viewers. My brain is leaking.
Haley steps forward. One blown call for me, as she escapes the Bottom 3. But wait, we don’t really have a bottom 3, the results were offered in no particular order. And it is CASEY who gets catapulted. Wow, Jacob outlasts Casey?
And with this we get our first truly sad departure. Casey will be missed-- especially by Haley, apparently. Hmmm, what was going on there? And she may outlast Scotty, whose welcome may be wearing thin.
STORYLINES FOR NEXT WEEK: Does James continue his path toward victory? Does Lauren taste the bottom 3? Do we even do a bottom 3 when we’re down to 5? My memory fails. Surely Jacob’s hour draws near.
