Last week saw a very odd, rushed episode of "American Idol". On Tuesday, the top 5 performed songs by Neil Diamond. They each performed two songs, and the judges only commented on the first performances after everyone sang. Paula Abdul commented on Jason Castro's performance as if he sang twice. Don't the producers know that Paula can barely be coherent when the format is exactly the same every week? How could she possibly form a sentence when they shake everything up?
Anyway, the next night Brooke White was the latest contestant booted from the show, shocking nobody. Except maybe Syesha Mercado.
