Idol Beat: Can You Hear The Drums, Stefano?

In what is surely a testimonial to my following, someone obviously heard yesterday's plea to show some love for the rest of Aerosmtih's catalog (there was a "Sweet Emotion" sign in the audience at the Nokia). My people...you never disappoint.

In other news, what's the over/under on the number of right-wing blogs that will be up in arms today over Randy Jackson's "Space Invaders"-themed American flag t-shirt\? I say 50.

Stefano's ouster last night has to be viewed as something of a minor surprise. Certainly, the guy was more or less bivouacked in the Bottom 3 for the last six weeks, but I still thought his legions of devotees might carry him forward a few more rounds.

What would you call those people? Langonians? Stef-Heads? I guess it doesn't matter now.
