Okay, I admit, last night on the results show, when Ryan asked Constantine to choose a group and he did that little backward slide-hop over to Carrie, well, I just liked that. C'mon. Didn't you like that? He really wanted to be there. He really wanted to be a rocker. And I was like, "Aaaaw, Connie..." Because at that point I knew.
I am not mad at Scott (okay, that's a lie, I totally am, but not TOO much!), but I did feel bad for Connie because he looked so shocked when he was sent over to the bottom group, and even more so when he was told he was out. The eyebrow came up, y'all. Which can be totally unconscious, as it seemed to be in this case. He just couldn't help it! Trust me. I know all about the unconscious, misbehaving eyebrow. I know.
Then he started the sing-out with "Let's rock this!" while Ryan was still blathering on (and on), and damned if he didn't sounded as if he were about to cry. Freak. I just felt sad. I've said over and over that I enjoy the excitement and controversy he brings to the show. He shook up the format and fearlessly jumped outside of the box every week. And truthfully, I think he's a genuinely nice guy, besides being incredibly charismatic and (I'll say it!) dead sexy, so yeah, this feels pretty bad.
This sucks, really. Paula thinks so, too. No, really. I mean, did you SEE her? Whoa.
So now we are left with predictable contestants. Anthony will belt out cheesy love ballads and make the tweenage girls and middle-aged women swoon; Vonzell will cutely sing cutesy songs and cutely be all cute; Bo will growl out classic rock and engage in intricate mic-stand acrobatics; Carrie will beautifully twang out perfectly good country songs; and Scott will arrogantly sing angsty Luther Vandross-type ballads which speak to his disgruntled Average Joe life and overall bitterness. And he won't do it very well, at that. And then he'll laugh at less fortunate contestants and thank Jesus.
Truthfully, I think Scott's persistence on the show may have something to do with the votefortheworst.com movement truckin' along, with disgruntled AI fans voting for the WORST contestant, to throw the show and give AI and 19E what they "deserve." Which, for the record, I think is stupid.
So thank you, Constantine, for the rocker screeches, the camera lovin', the hair tossing, the duck-lip pouting, the cheesy grins, the KISS tongue, the riveting performances, the starpower. Oh, and for making sweet, sweet love to me with your eyes every week. You know you were. Don't deny it, lovah.
Oh. And thank you, America, AI producers, votefortheworst.com-ers, whoever! for giving me my Tuesdays and Wednesdays back. I mean, now I can focus on pressing current events, such as the Tom Cruise/Katie Holmes coupling, urban sprawl, and the scoop on whether or not Joan of Arcadia will be renewed for a third season.

Paula's reaction was priceless. For the first time ever, I believed her to be authentic. (And if I'm wrong, may she go into acting, because she really is THAT GOOD.)
I really hope you're not right about Blinky. HE SUCKS, and his cliche arm waving crap is really starting to peeve me.

Seriously, the cameras got him at just the right moment, as he walked away from the bottom three (without a second glance, or a first, think on...), gleefully laughing and praising Jesus. Wha'? That's class with a capital K, right there!
Woo-hoo! Vote Scott!
Okay, just kidding. Don't do it!STOP THE MADNESS!

hey cat, you know i was never really a constantine fan but he kinda grew on me after awhile because he was entertaining. scott, carrie and anthony are soooooo boring. i was really surprised and i could tell he was too. that was kina mean how they did that and telling him he chose wrong, how humiliating. and yeah, he did seem like a nice guy even tho the faces he made were nauseating. at least he gave it his all and like you say tried to be outside the box. but i knew he did one too many of those karate kicks. the night he had more makeup on than i do was a real hoot too. what was he thinking singing that song by nichelback?
its an awesome song but his vocals just aint there. i gotta give him credit tho. good-bye constantine.

I had to take a phone call last night from a friend who just got dumped by her boyfriend, and I missed the results show. Anyway - I'm sorry that this happened, too. More for you than for any other reason - well, that, and the sheer injustice that Blinky remains a fugitive from the law of Idol Justice.
What did the judges say when Ryan asked them what they thought of the results? Did they ask that this time?

Randy Jackson uttered the illuminating, "I’m actually really shocked… but nothing surprises me at this point in the season." GOSH! Hello?! Contradict yourself, much? Anyhoos, Paula bawled like a Botoxed baby, and we never really saw Simon's response. He was probably all, "NO! He would have sold SOOO many records!"

AI and 19 Groups contracts they give the contestants are the worst in the industry.
Say you like Bo. He can also write music and play instruments. Actually got musical ability. If he wins and gets the AI contract, he will be limited on what musically he can explorer.
Clay Aiken got out of the contract. So help the others get out of theirs possibly. Vote for Scott to save the others!!

Oh no you D'INT!
No propoganda for votingfortheworst.com here, please! I don't agree with that mentality. Besides, they all knew EXACTLY what they were getting into. AND, clearly, precedent shows they can break the contracts anyway.
