LUCK BE A LADY TONIGHT? Blah, blah, okay but indulgent, very good, pretty good. Send one of the first two home, but what's striking to me at this point (especially after these past three theme weeks in a row) is that whatever's going on in terms of the internal Idol competition, they're doing a lousy job at making anyone believe that one of our remaining five could be the next American pop superstar. Much like America's Next Top Model, succeeding in the challenges which comprise the show does not necessarily make you suited for achieving the goal denoted by the show's title, and I'm not terribly inspired by our final five at this point.
Added, OOF! "The Top Five American Idol performance show last night drew the reality giant's smallest audience since the the first season, which aired in the summer of 2002."
