    Actually, according to DialIdol, every one of the five contestants is predicted to come in somewhere between first and fifth. I predict that every single one of their predictions is going to be correct. Four of the five contestants even have virtually the same DialIdol score.

    I wouldn't be surprised if her goal is to come in third. She can negotiate her own contract then. That would give her more artistic control, which she may be wishing for after hearing from some of the contestants who have made it to the finale and won their recording contracts. She may also think that coming in third will get her out of having to do gigs like hawking merchandise on QVC. (I felt so sorry for Kris when I heard he was doing that.) She might have better control of her schedule and life and be able to spend more time with her son if she doesn't win.

    But, I do think Crystal cares very much how good her performances are. She may not care if all the judges love it. She also may not care if the vocal coaches and Ricky Minor love it. I have a feeling that they are the ones who want her to go "big." Listening to an interview with Ricky Minor last year, it was very clear that he thinks that the contestants should be singing big glory notes whenever they can.

    Actually, unless they recently changed the contracts they sign when they make the top 12, Crystal can't renegotiate her contract if she comes in 3rd. They all sign contracts of sorts that RCA then has the option of voiding as soon as Idol is over. So they can decide to keep the 10th place contestant and not give them any negotiations or they can let them go and maybe resign them later if they want, which would then allow them to renegotiate. They got a lot of flack for this so maybe it has changed. A lot of times, though, the lower place finishers do seem to have more freedom, maybe because RCA isn't counting on big success if they didn't get to the top of Idol anyway so they kind of let them try what they want and see how it works.

    I don't mind Crystal talking back per se, but I do mind that she seemed to miss the point of Simon's critique and it was a valid point. She chose a song that may have been very personal for her but was not the best choice for the occasion. That's why he called it a bit self-indulgent. She didn't give a performance that is going to make a first time viewer think "yeah, she's the obvious winner". She didn't give a performance that is going to convert new fans. And at this stage of the competition she has to go out with that intent every week if she wants to win, and she's a fool if she doesn't want to win. There's little benefit to finishing 2nd or 3rd anymore. So, yes, her retort made sense in that it wouldn't have necessarily been appropriate to belt out the first half of that song, but I think Simon's larger point that it was not the right song was lost on her.

    So it seems like not even Lady Gaga in her dominatrix bee keeper outfit can generate interest in this show.

    I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!

    I'm so tired of this Letters to Juliet commercial. I wish it would just come out and tank already.

    Mike and Aaron are the bottom two. I'm surprised, Casey was bad.

    He doesn't have the voice of Archie but he does the humble role with so much more believablilty than Archie ever did, he seems like a really good kid so I wish him the best in the future
