"Idol" men move to the back of the line


It looks like the five-year male domination of "American Idol" is finally over. On Wednesday, Randy Jackson proclaimed that the women were thoroughly outdoing the men; then the voters agreed.

The result? On Thursday, three women -- Candice Glover, Angie Miller and Kree Harrison, not necessarily in that order -- were the top votegetters; four men -- Paul Jolley, Burnell Taylor, Devin Velez and Curtis Finch -- were the bottom.

Mostly, I agree. (Please see my previous "Idol" blog below; it's between the ones on "Top of the Lake" and "Dancing With the Stars.") The main exceptions: I would have Amber Holcomb i the top three (instead of Harrison) and Lazaro Arbos in the bottom two, with Velez going home.

As for Finch, his performance Wednesday was pretty good; his coat-of-many-colors was pretty bad. It was a not-great night ... somethig you can't afford with this quality of competition.
