Steep competition for Kris Allen in week two

Last night, the first three advanced to the round of 12. The laughing hyena girl sang well, but couldn't overcome her hyena laugh and general bat-shittiness with voters. A deserving Iraqi-American lost to an oil-rigger from Texas. The dude who's wife died recently and a girl with a ready-made pop-star name made the cut, too.

All's not lost for the nine who didn't make the cut. There's still a wild card round coming up in three weeks.

Our resident Bill James-of-"American Idol" figures that's where Little Rock native Kris Allen will be headed after next week. He's had almost zero air time so far, and he's up against two 16-year-olds, a guy with a split personality, another burly blue-collar dude, a flamboyant man with dramatic bangs who, bizarrely, everyone loves and several other folks with treacly back stories.

Next, week's episode will be taped on Tuesday, as usual, but won't air until Wednesday because of the State of the Union. The results show will be on Thursday. Our expert guesses that producers are sacrificing the live show so contestants won't have an extra day of preparation.
