Well, that was anti-climactic. The absence of Alex (or even any mention of him??) until decision time meant that his injury was too severe for him to continue, so I didn't stress at all about Billy and Ashley being in the B3. No surprise that Jose and Adechike weren't in the B3, either. They've both been popular since the beginning, and if there was any chance of Adechike being in the B3 this week, Mia torpedoed it. The only surprise of the night was that Robert wasn't in the B3.
Nice half-assed apology from Mia. Gotta love the "I'm sorry if you took it the wrong way" style that puts the blame back on other people I don't even think she needed to apologize for how harsh her comments were to Adechike, but she should have admitted that it was unprofessional and inappropriate for her to invoke The Wonder of Alex during Adechike's critique. Of course then she'd have to go back and apologize for her comment to Melinda last week, too. I wonder if Nigel made her apologize...he disagreed with her pretty strongly last night. And they're probably all annoyed that it backfired.
Anya/Pasha dance !
Billy's solo was great...Ashley looked like she gave up in the middle of hers. I think she's a strong dancer, but if this was a regular elimination she would have deserved to go based on that solo. of course, I can't see the judges leaving us with only 1 girl and 5 guys.
Natasha Bedingfield Glad she went back to lip synching...she sang live on that glee club competition in the winter and it was embarrassing to hear. Aw, I do like that Cat is so excited to see her friend though. She can't be that bad a person if Cat likes her!
I felt terrible for Alex having to stand in front of everyone during the announcement about his injury - at least he didn't have to do most of the talking, although Cat shoving a mic in his face saying "how do you feel about this?" wasn't her finest moment. Poor guy...I really hope he has a speedy (but not too speedy) and full recovery. Even if he doesn't do the competition again next year, I hope they bring him back to perform.
ps Cat needs an Emmy.
