"Week Four": August 1-3, 2005

Last week, we had the first double-elimination. What will we get this week? How many people? One person? Two people? Three people? The whole show? Well, part of that is right, as CBS banished the Monday episodes to VH1. We will find out in 30 minutes how many people will be getting banished to obscurity.

We get Brooke Burke reiterating everything that I said earlier (except for the show banishing part) while Dave Navarro tells all of the singers that they better upgrade their game. One of those people, according to INXS, was Jordis, who gets to reprise her performance from yesterday. I am waiting for one of those people to magically find themselves in the bottom three and then have to perform again. It will probably never happen, but it would be hysterical if it ever did.

What's not a laughing matter to the remaining people is the announcement of who will be the bottom three. Like last week, Brooke asks who they feel are the bottom three. This time, we only have three people who raise their hand. Brandon was not one of them, but he got called down. Ty was one of them - and he also gets called down. Jessica raised her hand....but she escaped the bottom three. Fooled you! I didn't fool Tara though - despite not raising her hand, she joins the other two in the bottom three.

Ty goes first, and INXS is surprised that he is in the bottom three. Ty isn't, as he admits that based on his performance that he should be down there, but he will kick some ass and perform 'Kick'. Tara also says that she is going to kick ass, and she gets 'Beautiful Girl'. Brandon, who surprisingly thought that yesterday was his best performance, and who INXS is also surprised that he's down here, gets 'Devil Inside', which allows him to pop off to the crowd. INXS says that they are surprised with Brandon and Ty - but not Tara. This isn't looking too good for Tara...

David warns them that this is the chance for the singers to redeem themselves - or to prove that the public was correct. With John and Andrew playing in the band, Brandon wants to redeem himself with 'Devil Inside'. The devil must have possessed his vocal chords. He's all over the place, and although he is facing the band and performing to the audience, it's taking away from his pitch and he's not sounding too good.

That wretched effort could very well give Tara (who is now doing her third stint in the bottom 3) life as she performs 'Beautiful Girl'. She sings the song well and she nails the pitch, but she is more walking around and less showing any stage presence. This isn't the best that I've heard her, and the emotion just isn't there. Could that, plus another trip to the bottom, spell the end of her?

Ty should not be in the bottom three. He wasn't at his best last night, but it wasn't bottom three worthy. He sings 'Kick' and easily exonerates himself. He actually tones himself down and looks much more like a lead singer of a rock group than a solo performance artist. If he sang like this last night, then he wouldn't be remotely close to the bottom three.

My thoughts? Ty should be incredibly safe. I think that Tara is toast, but it wouldn't surprise me if Brandon joins her and we get another 2 person elimination. INXS's thoughts? Ty's performance was fantastic and they wanted to see him stage dive. They allow him to dive back to his friends. Tara didn't have a lot of love on the performance though the pitch was good. Brandon was excited but he lost his pitch. As a result, they say that...Tara is not right for the group. Brandon...can join his friends, so we do not get a double-elimination tonight.

Tara, who admits that she was getting worn down from being in the bottom three, expresses her deepest gratitude and thanks to the band. Dave calls Tara amazing while the band thanks her for her effort. INXS calls her over for a final chat. The contestants bawl and Tara tells them to stop crying over her. AwwwwBarf.

We are now down to single digits. Join us on Monday, as we get even more single.
