Nothin' but hound dogs

It isn't getting any easier on American Idol, and we're not talking about the contestants. No, it's the audience that is having a tough time.  We have seen falling down drunks do a better job with Elvis Presley songs than our heroes did last night. Get this season over with.

It's time to re-evaluate the field, which shrinks by two tonight after another round of voting.  Andrew Garcia is almost certainly gone after butchering "Hound Dog."  Who will join him?  It's probably going to be a close call between Aaron Kelly and Tim Urban, who've been hanging on by the laces of their sneakers.

Here's how SSS handicaps the group (previous rankings from three weeks ago in parentheses):

FAVORITE (STILL)
1. (1) Crystal Bowersox, simply no one in her league

NOT GOING AWAY SOON
2. (5) Lee Dewyze, he's the good wine and now he's uncorked
3. (3) Casey James, doesn't seem to have the killer instinct

FIGHTING FOR THEIR LIVES
4. (4) Katie Stevens, still annoying Simon but then who doesn't
5. (2) Big Mike Lynche, some quiet redemption with "In the Ghetto"

GOING, GOING...
6. (7) Siobhan Magnus, we were suspicious long before "Suspicious Minds"
7. (10) Tim Urban, baffling how judges liked "Can't Help Falling in Love"

...GONE
8. (6) Aaron Kelly, tramples the classic "Blue Suede Shoes"
9. (9) Andrew Garcia, Randy calls performance "not good karaoke"

  1. Mac Davis wrote "In the Ghetto." I have heard a story that he followed Elvis into a men's room and passed the demo tape under the stall.

    The song was on the "Memphis Record" which is killer.

  2. 喔!最悲慘的事並非夭折早逝,而是當我活到七十五歲,卻發現自己從未真正活過。 ..................................................
