Remember when Kyle Sandilands was still a judge on this show, and he'd always complain that he hated big band night? Aah, memories. (Or am I getting mixed up, and he actually loved big band night? Nah... I'm pretty sure he hated it.) The show kicks off with a rendition of '(I Could Only] Whisper Your Name', which seems like such a boringly obvious choice for the groutine given that tonight's guest judge is Harry Connick Jr, aka, "That Guy From the Hey Hey Controversy". I hope Harry isn't feeling too embarrassed, given the performance is distinctly lacklustre.
Andrew G once again going by Andrew Gunsberg introduces guest musician and all-round jazz legend James Morrison, who's joined the Idol band tonight, before getting on with the elimination. The bottom three consists of Scott (deserved), Nathan (not that surprising), and... JAMES?! AGAIN?!?! Pardon me while I go and set myself on fire in protest.
I return to discover that James is, thankfully, safe: it's Scott going home. (If it'd been the other way around, I would've been totally homicidal for about three seconds then forgot about it, probably.) About time, really. Scott's total lack of experience has really dragged the show down for the last couple of weeks.
