American Idol 7: Top 7 Elimination

Because today was one hectic day, and still is, I wasn't able to check who got the boot from the comforts of my desk at home. Instead, I was at my internship, doing work, when I finally gave in to temptation and asked Pio to text me spoilers. Yes, I was that desperate.

But with tonight's elimination, what was Mariah wearing?!? Or NOT wearing? And well, I will always always always love Elliott Yamin!!! Seriously. This guy just brings a smile to my face each and every time. Now that's an Idol. Take notes, kids.

So we're halfway through the season and so far, we've hit it every week. We're bound NOT to get it one week because no one predicted Syesha would make it this far (UNLESS she wins, which I doubt). Anyway, congratulations to my mom who gets her first correct answer this year!

I thought Kristy did her best last night and her best for her at that. I'm not alone though. Last year's contestant, Chris Sligh seems to think she was pretty damn good too. The best woman last night even!
Kristy Lee Cook is a country artist. And Middle America is obviously having a hand in keeping her on the show. And tonight...well, tonight she finally proved to me that she could sell records (not that my opinion counts for anything, but I am the one writing the article). I actually think she was the best woman of the night. She sang on pitch and she made an R&B/pop ballad sound like it could sell records in a very tough country market. It's sad that it's so obvious who the producers want to keep and who they want to send home, though.

If Kristy was anything, she was sassy. She didn't care if she was bordering on annoying, she was going to sass her way to Simon. And this was sort of entertaining, if anything. Still, I'm not glum she's going.
Indeed, she may have struggled to hit the notes on the verse of ''Forever'' on Tuesday, but Kristy Lee's countrified take on Mariah's bombastic ballad sounded pretty in parts, and perhaps more importantly, the Energizer Cowgirl's determination to keep trying (and her ability to keep improving) even as the Idol nation attempted to reduce her to a Sanjaya-esque punchline, was downright admirable... And her exit performance — delivered seated on the judges table directly in front of Simon — marked the show's sassiest lyrical rewrite since Leslie Hunt bemoaned her decision to scat during the season 6 semifinals.

Still I burn on and on/ All of my life/ Only for a good comment from you.

Kristy Lee Cook - Eliminated April 17, 2008
On the one night where I actually enjoyed Kristy more than the other girls, she gets the boot. I guess it's finally her time. There's talk about the Sanjaya curse being on her (she did get the boot at the same time as Sanjaya), but with or without the curse, it's but time that she left. I could barely sit through her first few performances and wasn't ever really able to enjoy her fully until last night with her country-fied version of "Forever." So it's ironic how she had to finally go. Nevertheless, the Energizer Cowgirl (as Sleazak calls her) finally runs out of battery. It's about time.
