8:00 pm - They better show Megan Corkrey tonight, dangit!

8:01 pm - Tonight’s episode will feature the remaining 72 contestants singing with a full band. This is when Josiah choked. There better be drama tonight!

8:03 pm - “American Idol” is going all “Memento” on us, telling the story in reverse. Fun!

8:04 pm - Adam Lambert is up first. He’s going to sing “Believe” by Cher. And he’s singing it like Kiki and Herb. (So…he’s gay, right?)

8:05 pm - Matt “Not Elliott Yamin” Giraud is back. And he sounds hoarse. Who does he think he is, me?! Actually, his “Georgia on my Mind” makes me think of him like a piano-man version of John Mayer. Plus, he makes funny faces when he sings. How long before Matt’s schtupping Aniston?

8:07 pm - Jamar Rogers is crashing and burning on “Hey There Delilah.” Hey Jamal, “what you’re doing to me-e-e” is making me uncomfortable.

8:08 pm - Danny Gokey’s “I Hope You Dance” has inspired Paula to imitate a rodeo clown. It has inspired me to grab some sour cream and onion potato chips.

8:11 pm - Okay, so what do we think? Jamal will be a goner? And Gokey and Lambert are safe? (I’m pretending I didn’t read the “Idol” spoilers. Thanks a LOT, MJ!)

8:13 pm - Anoop “I’m Not Cut” Desai is up next. It’s his prerogative. Fun song choice.

8:14 pm - Scott “Blind Guy” Macintyre is back. I am totally unimpressed. Am I heartless? He’s happy he caused Paula to give him a standing ovation. Darling, don’t be flattered. She gives standing O’s when her puppies use the pee pad correctly.

8:16 pm - Kendall Beard, Lil Rounds, Kristin McNamara, blah blah blah. Where’s Megan Corkrey?!

8:17 pm - Mishavonna Henson (officially the Mariska Hargitay of “Idol” - her name is so much fun to say!) is back after getting cut during last year’s Hollywood Week. She looks like a brunette version of John Roberts’ character, Debra.

8:22 pm - Interesting that the contestants are picking such contemporary songs to sing this year. I wonder if “Idol” is pushing them to do that for the first time? Usually we just hear Stevie and Aretha and the Bee Gees and Whitney a million times.

8:24 pm - This just in: Tatiana del Toro is still infuriatingly unlikable. And probably certifiably insane.

8:26 pm - Nathaniel “Drama King” Marshall is rocking out to a guitar-based “Disturbia” intercut with all his backstage drama. I like it a lot, even though it’s making me sad to think about Rihanna’s current situation. :(

8:27 pm - Joanna Pacitti forgot the lyrics to “If I Ain’t Got You.” Don’t worry, girl. You’re a ringer! “Idol” won’t kick you off. Casey Carlson forgot the words to Jordin Sparks “Tattoo.” But in her defense, the lyrics to “Tattoo” are so inane and vapid that they’d be easy to forget.

8:28 pm - Stephen Fowler is the dude we already know is going to forget the words thanks to “Idol” promoing his mess-up every commercial break. He’s asking for a “Brooke White.” And then he messed up again.
