American Idol Recap :: Friday April 2

This week the Idol hopefuls were treated to a performance by Season 2 alum Ruben Studdard, got a crash course in R&B from Usher, and one unlucky contestant was sent home. Find out who lost out on this week’s American Idol recap!


Highlights

  • A newly-trim Ruben Studdard (he lost weight on a vegan diet!) took to the stage to show the contestants how it’s done with his electrifying performance of “Don’t Make Em Like U No More.”
  • Usher owned the stage (along with will.i.am) with his performance of his hot new single, “OMG” but the backup dancers were a little racy for a family show—bad Usher, bad!
  • Diddy and his newest talent, Dirty Money (Dawn Richard and Kalenna) debuted their new song, “Hello, Good Morning” under a dizzying strobe light.
  • Yup, that was Justin Bieber you saw hanging out with Ryan Seacrest in the audience. Bieber was taping a performance to air on a later Idol episode!
  • Didi Benami sand Jimmy Ruffin’s “What Becomes of the Brokenhearted” but Simon thought her version was too old-fashioned and off-key.
  • Idol viewers got a sneak peak at the new Clash of the Titans remake out this weekend and the contestants dressed up as ninjas to film a cute car commercial set to the tune of “Kung-Fu Fighting.”
  • The bottom three included Katie Stevens, Tim Urban (for the third week in a row!) and Didi Benami.

Who's Out?

Didi Benami knows what it’s like to face adversity—the girl lived out of her car! So she was well prepared for the disappointment when the judges didn’t save her after her final performance of her signature song, “Rhiannon” by Fleetwood Mac.

Stay tuned for next week when the Top 9—Lee Dewyze, Michael Lynche, Tim Urban, Casey James, Katie Stevens, Siobhan Magnus, Andrew Garcia, Crystal Bowersox and Aaron Kelly—play your favorite Beatles song for Lennon/McCartney theme!

I saw the premiere before I left and I have to say, I was somewhat impressed. Of course it's not as good as BMW but I think they have good potential.

I was very impressed by the first episode of Doctor Who I watched which I believe was called "Rose". It was creepy  but with enough of a hint of humor that it made for an enjoyable and interesting program. Me and my dad will definitely be continuing to watch more and more episodes of Doctor Who in the future.

The answer, obviously, is Doctor Who. The show has technically been running for almost 51 years. It's  a British T.V. show about an alien with two hearts who has been living for over 1,000 years, with a time machine that can travel anywhere, or anytime, in the universe. But there's a catch to his machine, which is known as a T.A.R.D.I.S, (Time And Relative Dimension In Space): It is forever broken and disguised as a 1950's telephone box. He chooses not to fix it, despite the companions he travels with wondering to themselves, "Why doesn't he fix it? Why did he have to break it as telephone police box?" He also tends to attempt to keep the companions for as long as possible. They tend to keep him in check, safe, sane, and non-genocidal. After all, being 1,800 years old, and I'm just guessing precisely how old he is, can make you feel lonely, angry, confused, scared, and vengeful. He had to destroy his whole planet to protect the rest of the universe from being destroyed by his people and their age old enemies, the Daleks. He will forevermore remember that day, and as punishment, from the self concious weapon he used,will have to live through for a long, long time.
