SYESHA IS SAFE!!!
Looks like TiVo isn’t locked in on the pulse of “American Idol” fans after all. In tonight’s shocking elimination, Aussie rocker Michael Johns was sent home. Ironically, his rendition of “Dream On” was better tonight than on Tuesday night. There was an audible gasp from the crowd and the judges (minus Simon) as Michael’s departure was announced.
Maybe America just didn’t like his vest.
Then host Ryan Seacrest teased Michael and the audience by saying (paraphrased), “Last year on ‘Idol Gives Back’ we didn’t send anyone home. But this year… [dramatic pause] Michael, you’re gong home.” It was wickedly funny and Michael took it like a man and sang his heart out. I think his performances have been weak the past few shows, so his removal was inevitable as I said in my previous post. Looks like I’m a better at predicting talent than TiVo! (Yes, I am excited about beating a digital recorder!)
Syesha Mercado, who was predicted to be tonight’s big loser by TiVo, was in the Bottom Three, but has another week to show America her stuff. Joining Syesha and Michael in the Bottom Three was Carly Smithson, “Idol’s” resident Irish lass, who often makes strange faces when she sings.
Bottom Three regular Kristy Lee Cook made it safely to the couches, much to her surprise. Her cover of “Anyway” was one of the strongest performances on Tuesday’s show.
Yay for Brooke!
Brooke White is safe…for now. Haha..check out my brand new VOTE FOR BROOKE widget over there on the left. But remember to vote frantically for her next week because as tonight’s show proves–anything can happen and sometimes TiVo is wrong!
