Last night I was SO excited to watch American Idol kick off with the top 12 men. I was mostly expecting to be wowed by the many guys we had never even heard of. Too bad the show was a snoozefest — cruise ship singing for sure. Thankfully, there were a few excellent performances including my favorites the oldest and youngest — David Archuleta and Michael Johns. Did anyone else think Ryan might have been flirting with the way too innocent and adorable David? Sadly the early favorites usually don't make it to the finals. The only other performance worth noting was dreadlock wearing Jason Castro who loves the whole stoned daydreaming thing. It was great to finally see him on stage and looks like he'll bring something different to the table. To see a complete rundown of the show check out Buzz's review and of course don't forget to vote on who you think will be booted this week.
