No time like the very beginning of a results show recap for an Esteemed Colleague Email Interlude, right, America?

Hey, dreams unwind; love’s a state of mind, man. Much to her surprise and chagrin, the sassy ‘n’ sexy Haley Reinhart was forced out of the Idoldome last night. I guess it makes sense. She’s kind of too good for this show anyway — or at least she didn’t fit in at all with the America’s Got Country vibe of Top 3 week. Good lookin’ out, Haley!

I loved how our lil’ growler improvised “Bennie and the Jets” to include Randy, J. Lo, and Steven’s names. This girl has become an expert seller of a very specific type of freewheeling yet calculated performance, and really couldn’t give a crap whether you like it or not.

Haley’s windblown departure leaves Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina to out-twang each other (yeah right…Scotty wins, correct?) in THE YOUNGEST IDOL FINALE EVER next week.
