Okay, so perhaps that's a slight exaggeration in the headline. I'm guessing Johnny Cash merely rolled over in his grave when he heard Adam Lambert's bastardization of the classic "Ring of Fire." Had Jaoquin Phoenix not already gone crazy, maybe he would have rushed the stage to stop what millions of Americans witnessed last night.
Instead, we get one of the most horrifying performances in American Idol history. If you missed it, thank your lucky stars. If you saw it, I hope you've managed to block it from your mind.
I'll keep the rest of my American Idol thoughts short going into tonight's elimination. Looks like one of the ladies is leaving tonight. If it's Megan Joy Corker, so long. If it's either Alexis Grace or 16-year old Allison Iraheta, than the judges will have a difficult choice on whether to use their one save.
Matt Giraud continues as my favorite after another strong performance last night with Danny Gokey close behind. I was glad to see Anoop Desai bounce back like he did.
As you can guess, I'm fairly certain the men will extend their lead in American idol finalists. Thus far, there have been 8 male and 6 female finalists. When this season is over, it will be 10 male finalists... and the men will tie the women in total winners at 4 a piece.
