This was not funny, America.

While Matt Giraud was rightfully voted off American Idol last night, the major news from the evening was that he was joined in the bottom two by Adam Lambert.

We're trying to determine what could poisslbly be the explanation behind Lambert ever being among the lowest vote getters. Might it be backlash against the constant praise he receives? Millions of texting mistakes? Swine flu?

My Funny Valentine

As for Giraud, he reacted to his elimination with class.

"I'll definitely remember being the cat with nine lives up there," the singer said before launching into "My Funny Valentine" one more time. "It's definitely not the last time you'll see me. I want to thank Kalamazoo and Michigan for supporting me, and the judges for seeing something in me. I love you all, so, I can't wait."

It's an American Idol tradition, on par with receiving criticism from Simon Cowell and smiling through Paula Abdul's jibberish.

Each year, the show's finalists attend BritWeek, an event created by producer Nigel Lythgoe. The event celebrates the link between Great Britain and the Los Angeles area.

At the 2009 edition, Adam Lambert and company got into the spirit of the occasion, posing for pictures and boogieing the night away with an Austin Powers impersonator...
