Anniethology on Idol: "I love you Dolly."

Update: Here is proof that Ryan Secrest is one sick puppy.
Ryan says, "Kristy you are safe. Ramile, I'm sorry you are out of the competition. Kristy eat Ramiele's head."
If I hadn't seen it live, I would not have believed it.

Idol Downgrade: Cheezy group numbers.
Idol Up-grade: Gravity and Jesus.
I remember when I met Dolly Parton 16 years ago. I was working as a waitress in a cocktail bar. Okay, not really, it was a restaurant in a hotel. (I was having a "Human League" moment.)

Dolly Parton came to town to perform at Country Jam. They allowed the staff to wait for her in the hallway as they snuck her out the service entrance in the back of the hotel. Her people said we could say "hi," but we couldn't approach her or take pictures of her.

I wasn't a fan, per sé, but I was excited see someone famous in real life. When the elevator door opened I was surprised at how little she was, except for her... well you know.

That day I understood what the words "star struck" meant. I was so filled with emotion and excitement I yelled out,

"I love you, Dolly!"

I don't know where that came from, but in that moment, I really meant it.

Dolly was so kind, she said,

"Well, I love you, too."

Fast forward to tonight, I was only lukewarm on the performances. At least no one sang "Islands in the Stream." Have you ever heard the joke, "What do you call Dolly Parton doing the backstroke?"

Brooke was good. She should have sang the song "Creepin' In" as sung by Nora Jones and Dolly.
David Cook got a good haircut.
Ramiele is going to be in the bottom three. This song could have been good if it was sung on a Corrine Bailey tip. They should have taken out the country instrumentation. I'm right about this, people.
Jason Castro was so cute, I can't help but smile back at him when he sings.
David Archuleta is back on his game. He should have taken the jacket off, I have a feeling that was a nice sweater underneath there. I didn't see any lip licking. I could be wrong. I have been wrong before. It must be hard for him to find songs that don't talk about secks.
Kristy Leigh, sometimes being beautiful is enough.
Syesha, Syesha. I don't care how good you think you are, nobody can do it better than Whitney or Celine or Mariah. Their songs should just be off limits.
Michael Johns needed to ditch the scarf. And that was a dirty, dirty song he sang. He made this old lady blush. Shame on him!


  1. My fav's tonight:

    Carly....oh.my.goodness. She's talented. I thought she was phenomenal.

    Michael Johns made me wanna be all wrong.....cuz' it's alright. It's all wrong, but......it's all right.

    I like that.

  2. Simon said what I was thinking about her ensemble.

  3. Ditto and ditto. But Aussieman was HAWTTTT!

  4. I like to read your commentary before watching Idol. It makes watching so much more fun.

  5. I agree with you (and Simon) on her attire.

  6. I love Jason. I mean, he is just so cute. I just love him!

    And of course Michael Johns and the Aussie boy! Love them too.

    I can't wait for Ramielle and Kristy to go HOME!!

  7. i loved jason tonight-also, was glad to see david do so well. thanks for the re-cap! your blog is fab!

  8. I haven't heard the one about dolly doing a backstroke.
    I bet he licked and got edited around, or he's been given some serious behavioral training--maybe even shock therapy every time he licks ;)

  9. hey miss Annie.... back from spring break, you have to read all about it LOL!

    totally agreee with your AI stuff too.

  10. Sometimes it hurts to be right all the time.

    Goodbye Ramiele

  11. I firmly disagree on your upgrade....Jesus and Gravity? How corny can you get?
    I seriously love Dolly too, but she is runnin' out of things to write about.
    Gravity and Jesus?

  12. B- How can you be down on gravity and Jesus?

    One of my favorite quotes from Dolly is:

    "It takes a lot of money to look this cheap."

  13. i know that whole hug thing was long and awkward.
    thanks for the nice comment on the blog
    let's be friends!

  14. I agree with b. I thought the song was corny. And I am so glad it was see ya later Remiele!!


I see you sitting there. Leave a comment.
