American Idol: Like Creed, Only Worse

If a passing extraterrestrial had tuned in to American Idol last night for the "songs of the 21st century" edition, they might have understandably come to the opinion that there have been no good songs written in the last six years. The contestants butchered the hits of Beyonce, Creed, Kelly Clarkson, Tim McGraw, Christina Aguilera and others. Even the reliable Idolators, like Mandisa and Chris Daughtry, were way off their game. The best of the night was Elliot Yamin, who won primarily by default.

Who gets the boot? I'd flip a coin between Lisa Tucker, who continues to underwhelm, and Bucky Covington, who is operating vocal chords without a license. I'd be pushing my luck to hope for Kellie Pickler to make the bottom three...but she did stink up the joint with a dreadful country song. Her redneck shtick rubs me raw.
