My jaw is still literally on the ground. Tonight’s results totally threw me for a loop. Before we get to it, let’s talk about how much of a tool Steve Jones is. While he hasn’t received the warmest welcome across the board, I’ve held off jumping on the anti-Steve Jones train… until now. I thought I’d give him a few weeks to find his groove. Sadly, I don’t think that’s ever going to happen.
During last night’s show, I thought he made a gaffe with the amount of musical acts remaining, but ignored it. Tonight on the results show, I know 100% he screwed up. At one point, he talked about the impending elimination and said that there would only be eight acts left. UMMMM, OK? Last I counted, there was ten acts and no double-elimination in sight. Time to head back to Grade 2 Mister.
From what I hear, he also messed up during the interview with Rihanna as well. The “We Found Love” singer had to perform SLASH lip sync twice, during yesterday’s taping of her performance, since Simon and producers didn’t want to use the first Q&A. I honestly don’t think Steve Jones is going to make it to Season 2. Anyone else agree?
The Top 10 did a live rendition of Queen’s “We Will Rock“. How did we know it was live? Ummm, easy… LeRoy Bell screwed up once again. Two weeks ago, he missed his cue and started to lip sync late. Tonight, he once again missed his segment. Instead of looking like a bad English dub translation of an Asian karate flick, this time the result yielded dead silence. Seriously, for screwing up the group performance twice he should be shot. On the flip side, Melanie Amaro and Paige from Lakoda Rayne were the highlights for me during the group performance.
In between all the performances and product placement for some Sony camera, the results took place. First person advancing was LeRoy Bell. WTF??? Who in the hell is voting for this guy. As shocked as he is in the picture above, I was even more so. Next act safe from the chopping block is Lakoda Rayne. YAY!!! Paula ran up to the girls and gave them a hug. So adorable. On a side note, the faces on the remaining singers was priceless. Besides Rachel, the rest had a “OH SH*T” look plastered on their faces. Drew and Rachel’s were particularly funny.
Later in the show, Chris Rene was declared safe. Man, another shocker. This doesn’t bode well for the rest of the crew. I sense someone is about to be screwed. Melanie Amaro, Josh Krajcik, Marcus Canty, Drew and Rachel Crow are all then told they advance to the Top 9 (Not the Top 8 you silly fool, Steve Jones).
That leaves Astro and Stacy Francis as the bottom two. Based on the past couple of weeks, Stacy Francis should probably go. But Astro does something, that makes the deliberation nail-biting. When it’s time for him to perform, he doesn’t even want to. At long last, he’s finally acting his age and starts pouting. He gives a half-assed performance.
Song: Amazing Grace
Song: Never Can Say Good-bye
Even though, Astro gets a public flogging from LA, Paula and Simon especially, they decide to keep him. Personally, I wanted him to stay, but after his tantrum and ridiculous comments about not wanting to perform for people who obviously don’t want him, beyotch needed to go. So not cool and respectful.
Last night, I prayed that my mascara-running Stacy Francis would return. Little did I know, it would happen the next night. In her exit montage, we’re reminded of her memorable plea of not letting the music die in her. Apparently, Simon, LA, Paula and America ignored that. Francis is outta here with the music still buried in her. LOL. She had so much potential but self-imploded the past couple of weeks. Til next week and remember. KEEP LAKODA RAYNE SAFE. They need to make the finals.
