Every week we say if they don’t vote off Tim Urban this time, we’re going to stop watching American Idol. Obviously, we aren’t keeping our promise. Seriously though, why the hell did poor Didi Benami get the boot this week and talentless Tim Urban still keeps managing to squeak through?
Yeah, we get it. VotefortheWorst.com fanatics and all that. Honestly though, are there really that many people out there willing to crush a girl’s dreams just for the amusement of keeping a loser like Tim Urban on stage to torture us week after week?
We’re not saying Didi Benami didn’t deserve to be cut. She had a weak performance and overall her time on American Idol has been mediocre for the most part. Still, the girl actually does have a voice, looks good on stage and probably has some kind of recording career ahead of her – even if it is just as a backup singer. Tim Urban, on the other hand, is literally one of the worst singers we’ve ever had the displeasure to hear.
Alright, alright, we’ll stop bashing. Somewhere in there we’re sure the poor guy has feelings to be hurt. Even so, it’s obvious from the look on his face during elimination (and the looks on the faces of his friends in the audience) that even he knows his time on American Idol should have been over long, long ago.
Speaking of terrible things to watch, what the hell was up with the so-called ‘entertainment’ on Idol this week? We usually love Usher, but his performance of “OMG” was pitchy, flat and groan-worthy. The song sucks badly enough, but he sounded like he was in some kind of terrible pain during the whole thing. Or he had a really, really bad head cold. Either way, it was suckage.
Diddy‘s performance with Dirty Money was even worse though. We can’t even call that crap music in the most liberal sense – and those strobe lights should have come with an epileptic warning. Ouch!
We can only hope that next week’s John Lennon and Paul McCartney theme shows will be more entertaining – and easier on the ears. We especially can’t wait to see what songs Crystal Bowersox andÂ Michael Lynche will pull out of the hat. Could be awesome, could be horrible, just have to wait and see!
