Did America get it right this week on 'Idol?'

Even with getting rehearsal time cut short, four of the top 10 guys (Michael Lynche, Lee DeWyze, Andrew Garcia and Casey James) proved to me that they are ready for the finals.

Some of the ladies of "American Idol", singing a day late this week, were definitely worth the wait on Wednesday night's show, with performances by Crystal Bowersox, Lilly Scott, Siobhan Magnus and Katelyn Epperly that clearly overshadowed anything that any of the guys brought to the table. But the question remains, should the show's producers have shortchanged the guys' rehearsal time by a day because of Bowersox's illness? Something that had never been done before in the history of Idol?

Thursday night we then learned that John Park, Jermaine Sellers, Michelle Delamor and Haeley Vaughn have crooned their last notes on "American Idol." No surprises really.

Soooo... Do you think the voters got it right this time around?

Watch the live blog next Tuesday when the girls take the Idol stage... probably... ;) I am still holding out hope that Didi Benami can pull it together before it's too late. She was easily my favorite to take the title this year, but just has not had the caliber of performances in the live shows that I saw in her during
Hollywood week.

And don't forget that Scott MacIntyre will return on March 11 to sing his new song “Heartstrings.” He will also be joined by fellow Season 8 finalist, Matt Giraud, for a duet of Billy Joel’s “Tell Her About It”,
the one that was originally to air during the season 8 finale.

Speaking of Season 8... Nick Mitchell, aka "Norman Gentle", remember him? Nick is slated to appear as an emcee for a four-month Vegas Idol Review. Two Idol winners and some additional finalists will be
featured. More on that later. Nick is also working on a satirical single called “Brit Slap” written by some folks who have worked with Billy Joel and Paul McCartney. Watch for it!
