When the top nine "American Idol" contestants opened the Lennon/McCartney songbook Tuesday night, Casey James and Crystal Bowersox led the pack.
The night's most memorable stars weren't contestants, however.
We met Ernie, the guy who played the didgeridoo while Bowersox sang "Come Together." Then, there was Earl, the booing audience member who got to come on stage and hug Siobhan Magnus.
And let's not forget the random kilt-clad bagpipe player who joined Lee DeWyze on stage while he performed "Hey Jude."
Is it bad that those guys will likely remain more memorable than many of this season's finalists?
In all seriousness, Tuesday's show wasn't too bad. Vote for the Worst pick Tim Urban offered one of his best performances of the season, but was it enough to save him from elimination? We'll see.
If I had it my way, we'd get rid of Aaron Kelly, who was a little too intent on copying David Archuleta this week.
Here are my rankings:
1. Casey James, "Jealous Guy"
2. Crystal Bowersox, "Come Together"
3. Katie Stevens, "Let It Be"
4. Tim Urban, "All My Loving"
5. Siobhan Magnus, "Across the Universe"
6. Lee DeWyze, "Hey Jude"
7. Michael Lynche, "Eleanor Rigby"
8. Andrew Garcia, "Can't Buy Me Love"
9. Aaron Kelly, "The Long and Winding Road"
