So I’m getting into one of my two torture … er … traction devices at the chiropractor, and I told him I just was not ready for Jason to go home, so I hoped the fans over ruled the judges. (By the way, I texted a bunch of votes for him.) The young gal in another device said, “I love Jason too. He’s my favorite.” And one of the comments on yesterday’s post said something like: “I would buy albums by Jason and Brooke, but not David or David.” Yes, I think that it is it for me too.
Well, my votes must have been good for something because Jason was the first one over to the sofa. Yea!!! I literally did a shout out! David A was the next one over to the sofa. No surprise there.
Long promo for So You Think You Can Dance that starts in May. Yes, I watch that show too. I guess I’m hooked on these competitions that featured talented young folks reaching for their dreams.
David C was pulled out next. I immediately thought that would mean he was in the bottom two. But I was wrong. He was sent to the sofa.
So Ryan brought out Syesha and Brooke. But we were only at the halfway point in the hour. That meant, in addition to a Neil Diamond performance, we were in for at least 20 minutes of filler. (They really could cut the result show to half an hour now that we’re down to so few contestants.)
Natasha Bedingfield was a guest performer. I don’t know why she was a guest, but it was enjoyable enough. I, of course, had/have no idea who she is but I guess she’s had a few hits and she’s British. Afterward, she sat down with the kids and kissed David A on the cheek.
And then we went to the really lame call-in questions. I read that these calls and answers actually happen before the live show. Okay, gotta say that I liked the call from Simon’s crush, Tara. They kissed when he was 9 years old. Awww. Wasn’t that sweet?
Neil Diamond sang Pretty Amazing Grace, a song that was new to me. I really liked it. Guess I’ll have to bop over to ITunes. FYI, the tune is available as a single. The new album, Home Before Dark, which that song is part of, releases on May 6.
The wait was over at last (about five minutes to the hour). And the contestant who is going home tonight was: Brooke. (Lots of tears, as is normal with her.) She seemed to be expecting it. This girl sometimes irritated me with her talking back or over the judges. But she has lots of good qualities and a boatload of talent. I’m sorry to see her go.
Brooke, I’m wishing you much success, and I promise to buy your album when it comes out.
