American Idol Recap: A Real Snoozefest

Is it us or is this season's crop of American Idol contestants some of the biggest letdowns? 

This American Idol recap can be summed up sorta like this:  "Nobody was really worth writing about except for Adam Lambert".  I mean, seriously, our own Jenny Woo once performed "Mary Had a Little Lamb" on the infamous Cindy Margolis Show a few years back, and she put more effort into THAT than most of these Idol wannabes did this week.  Simon (Cowell) certainly could have been a whole lot crueler.

The lone nominee, Chris Williams, co-director of the animated feature Bolt, probably won't win either as the film as the longest odds in that category - The payout would be US$3000 for every $100 bet at SBG Global.
