'Feelin' Good' -- Bad Idea

Sing "Feelin' Good" on "American Idol" and you are going to get the hook.

Leslie Hunt and AJ Tabaldo both sang "Feelin' Good" this week. Both are gone now. We rest our case.

Nick Pedro and Alaina Alexander are gone too. True, they didn't sing "Feelin' Good" but they compensated by being extra lousy this week, Alaina with the Dixie Chicks' "I'm not Ready to Make Nice" and Nick with "Fever."

There were no surprises to this week's eliminations, which is not to say the worst singers got the sack. An "Idol" producer had promised us a surprise on this week's elimination show. He was wrong. A surprise would have been Antonella Barba being voted out by viewers, or Sanjaya Malakar. Because, while bad, they're also Untouchable.

Antonella's got those clothing-challenged pictures of her making the rounds on the Internet -- though experts insist the nastiest of the bunch can't be her because the earlobes don't match and she's never had acrylic tips on her fingernails. Even so, America needs Antonella as it searches for a new bad girl, what with Britney and Lindsay in rehab, and Paris heading to jail.

Sanjaya has no naughty photos we know of, just volumes of lovely pettable hair and the good sense to act shocked he wasn't dumped this week for singing "Steppin' Out with My Baby" while dressed like Michael Jackson. The judges called it weird. They were right.

Maybe the surprise was Kellie Pickler. Pickler, last season's goofy blonde from Albemarle, NC, has made a return visit to "American Idol" to sing a song, promote her new album, and show off the girls, which she cutely calls "shoes" when show host Ryan Seacrest asks what she's bought with the money from her record contract.

"Just shoes?" Ryan asks, while the cameraman, who's apparently the only one noticing Pickler's new double-D's, points the camera at her silver pumps and hangs on for dear life.
