OK: 1st comment this year (I wait for the top 5 to avoid commenting on the chattle):

I am amazed how well the Idol producers keep track of the Web blogs (like this one)! The talk this week: Taylor was 'Lithgoed' like Clay in AI season Two (Term to discribe bumping songs at the last minute for no good reason & making the contestent sing a crappy song 'cause it's easy for the band to play). They noted that he hasn't gotten ANY production value except for the Sax Dude from Hell - no Daughtry lights or fog. And he's the ONLY one still standing that hadn't had the 'Pimp Spot' at the end of the show once this year, while Chris has had it TWICE. Even the choice by VFTW.com was to '...stick it to the man..." after last week's Elliott-is-SO-wonderful garbage.

So, what happens this week?

Taylor gets the 'Pimp Spot'. Taylor gets production values (although no fog, they DID have the disco lights going!)
And... for the 1st time in FIVE YEARS, they get approval from the Beatles for a song. For Taylor. And he did what he does. Pure magic.

Notice there was no 'sitdown' with Ryan & Taylor?
They had time to discuss Kat's 'Wardrobe Malfunction', but didn't take a chance that he might have a word or two for America before the 1st song.

Bottom line - Paris knew she was a goner b4 the show, so she let it hang out (notice the $hit lyric edited from her MJB song?), Kat's Dad was restrained this time (cause he's a Hollywood Producer doesn't mean he can berate the judges in the break), Elliott got the usual 'dont vote him off yet' judgements, and Taylor just MIGHT get a good Elvis song next week.

Me, I'm waiting for 'Georgia' or - if they let him do an original song - 'Soulthing'
