ellen's thoughts

First of all, I want to address what happened to Pia last week. My therapist says it's best for me to talk about it. I can't believe she was voted off. I think it was a huge mistake. The good news is that I know she will go on to have a fantastic music career. I'm looking forward to buying her album.

Now let's talk about the top 8. The theme was "Songs from the Movies." I liked a lot of the song choices, but I was surprised that no one sang anything from the soundtrack to "Finding Nemo." Or "If These Walls Could Talk 2," or "Mr. Wrong," all of which are currently available on Amazon.com.

Casey sang Nature Boy, and I've heard a lot of conflicting opinions about it. I read somewhere that the Most Beautiful Woman in the World liked it. It's true. I do. But I honestly don't remember giving that interview.

Every week, somebody surprises me. This week it was Jacob and Stefano. They were wonderful. Last week it was Dionne Warwick.

It's still anybody's game. Last night I was voting with both hands. Not my actual hands, hired hands. I asked them to vote when they finished re-grouting my tub.
