SHATTERED GLASSBLOWER: So Siobhan went home, with both The Outlaw Casey James and Big Mike joining her in the bottom three. First off, pimp slot thwarted!
Obvs, I can't read America's read on country music. Moreover, this should scare anyone who's been ready for a month to see Aaron go home, or who believes that TOCJ's and Big Mike's one-tricks are more interesting than that of Lee DeWyze. America disagrees with you.
Was Siobhan going to win this? No. Her talents proved too inconsistent; her shriek too alienating. But I am upset to see her go home before Aaron, and before she got to tackle The Songs of Francis Albert Sinatra next week. I still don't get why he's still here, and the prospect of a Crystal-Aaron-Lee final three remains tenable and disturbing. And Crystal may not win.
added: Oof. We might have had some phone number issues this week, though I'm doubting there will be a remedy.
