Um, well (he says in a tiny, mouselike voice, as befitting a show that has somehow seemed to have gotten so much smaller this year), does anyone have anything to say about the remaining Top 5 contestants on “American Idol”? Is anyone still watching? Siobhan Magnus got the boot last night, and supposedly 33 million votes were cast, so “AI” still seems to be resonating with the public, but maybe it’s just a gaggle of 11-year-old girls voting 33 million times for tender sapling Aaron Kelly.
Who’s next to go? The big guy? The long-haired guy? The skinny guy? Will it come down to a battle between Lee DeWyze and Crystal Bowersox? Or will the final episode just grind to a halt in an unbearable paroxysm of blandness? Here’s what the L.A Times Buzzmeter has to say. Any thoughts?
