Doolittle do right.

I usually don't pay much attention to American Idol until the top 12, but this year I have already picked my favorite, and I am not alone on this: sweet Melinda Doolittle. I like her name, I love her voice, and she's a peach.

Yes she comes from the Oleta Adams school (vs the Whitney or Mariah school), but I am a big Oleta fan. Tonight she surprised everyone with a kickass performance of I'm A Woman (is that it?) that had her strutting all over the stage. Bring it!

I love Melinda too!!! But LaKisha's been bringing it...homegirl's got some competition!

I think Melinda has the best voice on the show, but I'm kind of over her whole wide-eyed "Who, me?" demeanor.

I'd give that beatbox guy a slam or two.

And why is that slut Antonella still on? Though I must admit, she didn't do awful with the Corrinne Bailey Rae song....

Melinda's a shoe-in... not just because she is the best on the show, but Simon's saying exactly the same thing to her as he did to Leona Lewis, the winner of X-Factor, throughout that series: "You're special. And what's even more special is you don't even know it. And you're such a pleasure to have around..." etc.

Team Doolittle!

I was waiting for you to call Melinda on that "who me?" thing. She's done it twice in a row.
