During American Idol season, I don’t find time to blog about much else. But believe it or not, I do have a life, and I am busy working. This week, I finally got back into my rewrites after lots of rounds of edits on a different book and was feeling good about having some momentum. So what arrived today? Page proofs of my novel that comes out in May. So tomorrow I set aside the rewrites and begin going through the proofs. They should go pretty fast. At least I hope so or I’m going to have a hard time finishing my rewrites by the deadline.
Weather was beautiful here today (low 50’s), so after lunch, Poppet and I went for a walk around the neighborhood. No coat necessary, just a sweatshirt. Oh, I am so ready for all out spring to arrive. We’ve got signs of trees beginning to green up so it shouldn’t be too far away (despite the very cold mornings).
I read through all the info out of California about the iPhone. Looks like users will soon have new third party apps to choose from, probably by the end of June.
Now back to our regularly scheduled post:
No surprises at the very start of tonight’s results show. David C., David A., and Jason went straight to the first three of the twelve seats. Next came the girls, and Brooke and Syesha moved to finalist seats. But Kady was sent home (as was predicted by many, me included).
Halfway through the show, and David H. made it over to the finalist chairs, followed by Michael. Luke was the next to stand up, and I figured he had to go, not just because of past performances but because no guy had left yet. I was right. He was someone I loved early on and wanted to do well, but once he was in the 24, he just never performed to the best of his ability. Chikezie and Danny are left waiting for results. (I predict Danny.)
Fifteen minutes left and Ramiele and Carly went straight to the finalist seats. Amanda followed soon after. Kristy and Asia’h were the final two. Which one? I was up in the air on this one. Could be either one. Turned out to be Asia’h. I would have swapped her with Amanda.
Down to barely five minutes to get the final results for the guys. And it was Danny going home. Chikezie looked super surprised.
So here, America, is your final 12. Good luck, kids!
