It’s Been A Very Good Year (I Liked Everybody Tonight)
Didn’t Really Like Anybody Tonight (They Should Have Done It My Way!)
ETA: Here's a blurb about the ratings, which surprisingly are not great. http://tv.yahoo.com/blog/idol-gets-l...nce-2002--1210

I was surprised by the results, Dial Idol was wrong again.
I actually thought Casey was really good tonight, too bad he didn't sound that good last night.
If you look at the raw numbers table, it does show that Micheal and Aaron had the lowest totals of phone votes among users of DI software. VfTW addicts are more likely to use the DI software, thereby explaining Casey's numbers.
These are the requirements to use DI.
# Windows ME/2000/XP/2003/Vista/7 (Run as administrator may be required)
# Internet Explorer v5.5 or higher
# Microsoft .NET Framework v2.0 (a free download from Microsoft)
# Internet connection (high speed preferred)
# Modem with an active phone line *or* Skype (You need an "old fashioned" phone modem to dial & vote. If you have a cable/DSL modem you still need a phone modem. Phone modems are quite common and still very cheap.)

DialIdol didn't get it wrong. They make predictions for each contestant about a range of possible placements, and all their predictions were right. Those predictions just weren't particularly useful.
And, yeah, Casey did well in the interview portion of the pageant this week and always brings the pretty. (I do think, though, that sometimes people don't give Casey enough credit for his performances and just write him off as a pretty face.)
ETA: The list of song choices for next week isn't that big and it's loaded with cheese and bad choices. Who is going to sing Footlose? I'm sure someone will sing Iris.

With the exception of the Simple Minds song, that is one craptacular list of songs. Danger Zone?
Oh, dear god...
(Everything I Do) I Do It For You – Bryan Adams: Lee/Casey?
Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman – Bryan Adams: Lee/Casey?
Summertime – Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Armstrong: Crystal?
A Whole New World – Brad Kane & Lea Salonga: Mike?
I could also see any of the guys attempting Kiss from a Rose, but I don't think any of them would do particularly well with it.
I'd kinda like to see Mike or Crystal rock out to One Night Only.
I would have loved to hear Crystal sing In the Heat of the Night. Totally underrated movie theme, and a style that would really suit her.
Too bad Siobhan's not here to do Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In. I'm sure it would be a legendary performance (and outfit.)
I don't think Casey will do "Have You Ever Really Loved A Woman" because he already did a Bryan Adams song. But, he might not have many other options. Similarly, I don't think Lee will want to do another S&G song with Mrs. Robinson. I'm guessing one of them will do Iris.
I guess I could see Crystal doing something like the Patty Griffin arrangement of "Moon River," but the judges probably wouldn't like it. I doubt she's thrilled with this list. She might be the one who ends up doing "Aquarius."
So clearly we will get some craptacular duets with all the duets in the song list. I don't know who I would prefer Crystal be teamed up with. Mike has the best vocals but seemingly a lower fan base. Lee is popular but wouldn't mesh well with her. Casey...just no.
"Michelle would never be caught with sausage grease staining her Vera Wang." - rfisher
Just read that viewers are at their lowest in the 8 year history!
I smell axed next season coming???
Without fear you cannot find courage
And add me to the list of folks who don't "get" Lee. Adam Lambert nailed it a couple of weeks ago; Lee's face is so blank, "nothing going on" there....
