Free Porn, Desperate Housewives, and American Idol

These are allegedly the top three search subjects on the Internet these days. The first is a myth; the second soap-opera fiction; and the last is (theoretically, at least) “reality.” In tonight’s American Idol semifinal elimination, one of the three remaining contestants will return to “real” reality.

Last week, it was thought that Elliott Yamin, the untrained underdog with the magical natural voice, would last another week into the Top Two. (We think that’s only fair. After all, El’s the one who had his ticket bought for last summer’s American Idol audition in Memphis — the one that was rained out by the afterwash of Katrina), so he’s almost home folks. But the inside betting today is that the E-train probably got derailed last night when Yamin gave so-so performances on his three esoteric songs.

That leaves Californian Katharine McPhee, the looker, and Alabaman Taylor Hicks, the karaoke spastic, as probabilities to lung it out next week.

See you at the Barbecue Fest, Elliott.
