“American Idol”: What just happened??

I’ll leave it to our “American Idol” experts Kathy and Erin to fully explain the atrocity that was the results portion of the show last night, put I had to throw my two cents in there to vent my outrage at having Carly tossed.

Sure, Carly was no Carrie Underwood-to-be — who knows if she even has the musical chops to launch a successful post-“Idol” career — but seeing her go before Jason was a travesty. Travesty I say!Carly

Not to pick on Jason — OK, I’ll pick on him — but the guy seems more interested in selling incense on Venice Beach than in being a musician. The guy is so laid back, every time I watch him perform I think he’s going to fall asleep before the song is over. That is if I don’t fall asleep watching him first.

Why did he survive and Carly say goodbye when it was obvious she had a much better performance Tuesday night? A minor factor might’ve been Carly’s tattoos and her husband’s faceful of tats, which might’ve scared off mainstream America.

The larger factor, however, is that Jason’s a heartthrob of 16-year-old girls who have nothing better to do than dial in for him 800 times a night. That’s the way to get into “Idol’s” final rounds, by being the cute guy or girl who everyone wants to cuddle with.

No cuddling with Carly. All she could do was sing.
