Bomentum vs. Carrie Okie

Are you overcome by Bomentum? Carried away by the folksy Okie?

Not me. My impression of the season four American Idol showdown is more like Boring Carrie-okie. My idol is AWOL, so tonight I will be an interested but not invested spectator.

I hope the grand finale lives up to the hype. It will be a challenge to surpass the dramatic power of Bo Bice's a cappella performance last week unless that mothership of an overhead light comes back to beam him up. If Carrie Underwood begins to sense that she is a pawn in an elaborate scheme, maybe she will go all Sissy Spacek on Simon Cowell and Randy Jackson in a porcine bloodbath.

Now that would be an exciting show.
