Sight unseen, I'd say the bottom three is Megan Joy and Scott MacIntyre and Michael Sarver with Sarver going home.

It was a topsy turvy peformance night on Idol, with Simon looking bored, Paula providing some cogent analysis (again), a minor stumble from Lil Rounds and praise for Anoop.

I Like Simon Cowell. Is That Weird?

Simon just comes out and says it: 'You were awful, you looked stupid, you sounded like karaoke, that was a horrible song choice for you...' I appreciate that.

The third round of the top 36 performed on Tuesday and to me the men clearly outshone the women, who were generally dreadful or (even worse) forgettable.

So the second batch of the final 36 was much weaker vocally and personality-wise than the first group.

Aloha from Hawaii. I'm too busy hula dancing and killing wild boar to watch this week's American Idol but the show has gotten so formulaic that I think I can review it even without seeing it.

American Idol -- Hollywood Week Ratings Down But Strong

Michael Giltz | Posted 05.25.2011 | Entertainment
Michael Giltz

My biggest complaint about Hollywood Week is that I still feel like there are loads of people I don't know yet. The judges cut 147 people down to 104 and no one who was cut deserved to stay.

American Idol -- San Fran and Louisville

After the dearth of exciting talent in San Francisco, I was hoping Idol would come charging out of the gate with some great singing. Instead, they started off with a train wreck.

American Idol Returns -- Phoenix

The opening montage included Clay Aiken several times, giving him as much (if not more) screen time than any other previous Idol contestant -- a nice nod to the latest Idol finalist to come out.

The show's producers may have told us it's been a lot closer than we believed (with only one million votes separating the Davids two weeks ago), but this is what I think: a tie goes to Archuleta.

American Idol Top 4: Jason's Last Bow

Michael Giltz

I've preached that as long as the two best make the finals, there's no real big scandal about who goes home in what order. But if Jason Castro doesn't say "bye bye" this week, it'll be a shonda.

Diamond gave away little about his attitude towards the singers and since we didn't see him actually giving any tips or suggesting arrangements, changing keys, or doing much of anything, I assume he wasn't a very active mentor.
