'Idolatry': Blondes with guitars, Ellen with pancakes, and Kristen Baldwin with a PSA for the men of America

Congratulations, Idoloonies, we’ve made it through the first two Hollywood Week episodes of American Idol’s ninth season – which means we’re thisclose to finding out who’s in the top 24! (Unless, of course, you’re into – eek! – spoilers.) And while unfortunately, Idolatry was unsuccessful in its quest to get Fox to send us the names of all 71 singers who survived the “group audition” rounds – we wanted to scroll ‘em up the screen, Star Wars-style, to calm those “did my fave get through?” feelings of panic – my cohost Kristen Baldwin and I have nonetheless attempted to make sense of everything else you experienced on your screens: An onslaught of super-talented blonde guitarists; Ellen as either a lobster or a stack of pancakes; and the inexplicable rage of one Mary Powers. To cap it off, we’ve got a cameo appearance from David Cook, bonus footage from Friday night’s Kradison concert in NYC, and Kristen’s very special PSA – which should be required viewing for every man in America, thank you very much. Press play below, then post your thoughts on the week in Idol in the comments. And to get up-to-the-second updates on all my Idol coverage, follow me on Twitter @EWMichaelSlezak!
