He's Boring now    

Woud you want her making nurse house calls to your elderly loved ones? Showing up on a motorcycle all tanked and plastered, and all decked out like that? My goodness I thought the state of Indiana has come further along than what she represents of it.

Doesnt AI do background checks before letting these people come to California? Last time I checked a DUI is a felony in most states. NO felons on the show please, no matter the crime. I think thats what is meant by developing story. Dont be surprised if the vote is suddenly rigged to off her now, irregardless of that scratchy throated performance last night.

What happened to the good old days when it was perfectly acceptable to drive around drunk? If the cops pulled you over and you were drunk they would take you home and let you go!

So she's been sporting that hideous hair since at least '06?! My God I hope they get rid of itwhen they do the inevitable Idol makeovers. Assuming she even makes it that far.
