Amanda Overmyer?

Really?

Well, it was a surprsing night all around. You had that random bottom three: Carly Smithson, Kristy Lee Cook and Amanda Overmyer. (Somebody up there likes Chikezie, Michael Johns and Ramiele, all three of whom deserved to be in the remainedered bin.)

But Amanda? The Mickey Rourke  of American Idol? It wasn't even like she was bad singing "Back in the USSR". In fact, she never really faltered. Others in the competition had up and down nights, but she just plowed ahead in her diesel fashion.

So in the end, she doesn't get to go on the Idol tour. On the other hand, she doesn't have to listen to Andrew Lloyd Weber prattle on as a "mentor" in a few weeks.

I do kind of wish that as a parting gesture, Amanda had hauled off and slugged Ryan before leaving the stage. Of course, I wish that every week.
