We're reminded that Mariah Carey "wants everyone to win, in some way."
Unless that way involves some of them winning after they've returned home, I don't think that's going to happen.
With seven contestants remaining -- and one going home tonight! -- Ryan's revived the old "form a group to my left," or as I like to call it, "sheep and goats."
David Cook's on one side, Jason Castro's on the other.
What could it mean?
Here's a hint: Carly's on the Jason side. Just guessing here, but that might not be the good side tonight. Except that now the Cooks -- Kristy Lee and David -- are together.
OK, I've lost interest. But at least we'll get another look at Elliott Yamin's new teeth before this charade goes any further.
