It may be "Bye Bye Brooke" but this week's American Idol was centered on Paula Abdul's major booboo last Tuesday night! Yeah, we know that she's a little dim at times and is a rumored alcoholic with her Coke glass containing scotch, but I never expected that she will be this careless. People are now accusing American Idol to be rigged and scripted because of her flub.

American Idol Season 7 - Top 5

The Story
The Top 5 American Idols were asked to sing twice at the Neil Diamond week last Tuesday. The new set-up was the judges' critique will come collectively after the second song instead of their usual after each song.

So the Idols all sang their songs with Jason as the first singer and Syesha at the Pimp Spot. After Syesha's "Hello Again" (which I think was good), Ryan Seacrest called everyone on stage and asked the judges to quickly say what they think of the first round of performance. Randy said his piece first which were all quick one-liners. When it was Paula's time, she immediately complained that it was not easy since they now have to write their comments which they never had before. She started reading her notes on Jason Castro's first song, "Forever in Blue Jeans", saying that it's not good blah, blah THEN SHE STARTED COMMENTING ON HIS SECOND SONG WHICH HAVE NOT BEEN PERFORMED YET. All the people were shocked and you can see Simon rolling his eyes! So what happened? Is the show scripted all this time? Ryan, Simon and Randy had to pitch in and cover for her mistake with excuses! Terrible, terrible mistake! Her alibi? She was reading David Cook's critique and mistook it for Jason's 2nd song!

Watch it all here.

American Idol had to do damage control so they asked Ryan to interview Paula and explain on his radio show yesterday morning before the elimination night. She said that there were some mix-up and she saw Jason's dress rehearsal for his second song, "September Morn'" thus she had notes for it. Whatever. Aren't they suppose to judge the actual live performance and not anything else? Hear the interview through Click here to be redirected.

Oh well. There goes the "reality" on these reality shows! It reminded me of the result of Pinoy Big Brother Celebrity Edition 2! Hah!

As for the Idols, it seems that Simon is right when he said that Syesha is the dark horse of this competition. Her performances last night were good and she was way better than David Archuleta who had several vocal and pitch problems on his two songs. David Cook was amazing as usual and Jason's fans are all making sure that he stays on the game (or was it coincidence that Paula's booboo was Jason's gain?). As for Brooke, well, she should have gone last week and not Carly. I love her better than Syesha but the eliminations are getting weirder and weirder each week. Up next week is Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame Night. A pretty biased theme, huh?
