It’s a terrible headline and a terrible request for the use of your time. But if you’re as frustrated as I just was after Fox teased the heck out of one contestant’s impressive Hollywood Week stage-to-floor story arc — only to let our DVR recordings get brutally cut off by a bump for new series Mobbed — you can watch 16-year-old Symone Black fall off the stage here.

Don’t expect to find out whether she lives or dies! You’ll just have to tune in tomorrow.

I’m such a deeply loathsome creature right now, and yet I’m only trying to help.

Looks like Symone had a bit of a nervy b after telling the judges she chose Otis Redding’s “Sittin’ on the Dock of the Bay” to appeal to older viewers. How rude! Randy Jackson is barely a teenager in Dawg years.

Was this the sleaziest American Idol cutoff ever? Discuss. My full recap is on its way. I just have to go cry for a few minutes and then fall off my couch.
