American Idol – Top Twelve Guys Night

Tonight was a very good night for the men.  I don’t think anybody was awful but some people were better than others.

IMHO the stars tonight were:

Clint Jun Gamboa – opened the show with “Superstition” by Stevie Wonder.  He got props from the judges and a lot of applause from the audience.  Good lively show opener.

James Durbin – sang Judas Priest’s “You’ve Got Another Thing Coming” and got the house rockin’.  James got mad props from the judges and huge applause.  Definitely a stand out moment for this season’s rocker.

Scotty McCreary – this season’s deep-voiced country crooner sang John Michael Montgomery’s song “Letters From Home” and got kudos from the judges and a lot of applause as well.

Stefano Langone – sang “Just The Way You Are” by Bruno Mars and got a ringing endorsement from the judges and audience alike.

Jacob Lusk – sang a Luther Vandross classic “A House Is Not A Home”.  Luther Vandross was smiling down from heaven.  Brilliant performance!!  Brought the house down.

Casey Abrams – this season’s super talented musician and superb performer closed the show with “I Put A Spell On You” by Screamin’ Jay Hawkins.   Judges and audience went wild.

I think we have a contest with the men this year.  Some phenomenal talent.

A Stink Bug Solution Coming From The United States Department Of Agriculture!

Finally, a stink bug solution!!!!  The USDA has come up with a way to get rid of 80 percent of the stink bug population plaguing 33 states (the Mid-Atlantic States are ground zero).  A tiny wasp from Asia will be used to wipe out most of the stink bug population.  The wasp lays eggs in the skink bug and the babies eat their way out (yuck) killing the stink bug.  I am sure PETA will freak out over it but I say hip-hip hurrah!  They hope to release the wasps in 2013.  If the stink bugs are left unchecked they will decimate our food supply.  They are already impacting it!
