Tween girls of the Idoldome, could you please explain your rationale behind shrieking? I understand that you’re quite excited about seeing Lee DeWyze in the flesh, and that by shrieking, you increase the odds of Lee spotting you, falling desperately in love, and marrying you that night by about 0.000003 percent. (Well, technically zero percent since you’re underage, but for you, Lee could wait forever). But, still, y’all could have given me and my ears a heads up beforehand. Anyhow, judging by the aural measurements I conducted at last night’s results show, I’m starting to wonder if the tide has turned in favor of Lee. I’ve been of the opinion that Crystal’s had this thing in the bag since “Me and Bobby McGee,” but now I’m not so sure. The in-studio enthusiasm for Lee has increased each time I’ve stepped into the Idoldome, and last night, it was approaching Burj Khalifa levels. Does the Idoldome audience accurately reflect the show’s voters? Who knows, but I think it could be pretty similar. If anything, those calling in to vote may actually be younger, and I’m not sure that works in Crystal’s favor. But enough speculation… we have a results show to discuss! READ FULL STORY
