How long have we been watching this show? 8 months? A full human gestation period? It feels like a long time, and I blame Gabby Douglas for that. Its the beginning of the Semi-Finals tonight, and only three from this week will go through. I hope some acts get mad Xs.The first act is Andrew de Leon. We just saw him! Last week!

Theres a bit of a croak to his voice starting out, and Im sort of wondering when America will get over their rally cry for Andrew that originated in his audition. I do think this was far better than last week, though. It didnt sound crazy, it sounded pretty. He hit all the notes, too, so the night is off to a good start. Howie loved it, Howard thinks sometimes its getting strange and too much about the Story. I love Howard, Im glad hes being straight up. Sharon suggested not wearing all the makeup and contacts, which would strip him of all the "talent."
