Pretty awful night all around, wouldn't you say, kids? But the low point had to be poor lil Davey Archuleta's choice of "You're the Voice". Perhaps the worst song selection in the history of the Idol competition.
For those of you playing at home, it was a hit Down Under for Aussie singer John Farnham. Still not ringing any bells? Come on, you remember Franham's big hit - "Sadie, the Cleaning Lady". I'm not making this up.
Loved Simon's comment, that it was "reminiscent of a theme park performance."
Other strange moment for me for Kristy Lee Cook desperately waving the flag with "God Bless the U.S.A." The judges seemed to think it was a magnificent and inspired choice, as they showered Cook with "brilliants".
Their enthusiasm shocked me because it struck me as a really trite and obvious choice. Especially when you consider her first preference: "My Little Pony."
