Usually, I look forward to elimination nights on reality TV shows about as much as I look forward to a trip to the dentist. Why? Well, I worry about the dreams that I'm about to witness being crushed on stage and that it might be one of my favorites who is sent packing. Usually I'm asking, Can't you just eliminate one person instead of two? But there's nothing usual about tonight's American Idol elimination, where I find myself wondering: instead of four people, can't we send home ten instead?
Sure, you can blame the poor performance of the Top 24 on nerves, but in every other season of Idol,semi-finalists were nervous too and never have I seen such an uninspiring introduction. Right now, I'm looking at 24 contestants who have bright futures as wedding singers, buskers and stars of cruise ship reviews.

And definitely not a single one that made me sit up and say, "now that's a super star."
