Idol: The easy part is done now

OK, the astute observor will notice I missed a week of "American Idol." (I have excuses, which I won't get into now.)

The show did carry out my previous instructions, though, ousting DeAndre Brackensick. He's a cute and likable guy with the best "Idol" hair since Brooke White or Haley Scarnato, but his range is limited.
