Update: Last night’s performances were strong across the board with Joshua winning the night, in my opinion.
I don’t agree with the Judges (and crowd, I suppose) on Phillip’s “We’ve Got Tonight”. I thought it was a flat and awkward performance and everyone was trying to spin it into something great.
Phillip still goes home tonight – as I said last week.
Last week’s blog (Hollie elimination):
Well, this week was easy.
And, no, there won’t be another mountain – at least not this week.
After the performances last night, there really wasn’t much drama in the elimination.
So long, Hollie.
But congratulations. You made it about a month longer than you should have.
And, you were the most attractive of the Final 12 – so you will definitely be missed for that.
I can’t help but think Skylar would have killed on the second song last night (the one they wish they would have written) with most likely something by Miranda Lambert.
Ah, well… life isn’t fair.
So… it’s off to the cruise ship cabaret for Hollie and now the real drama can begin.
The question is – will it be Joshua or Phillip who joins Jessica in the finale?
Here’s my pick – the Top 3 Power Rankings by order of elimination:
That’s it. Take it to the bank.
The talent was really good this year – the rest of the show, pretty awful.
My colleague Jill Kennedy @ OnMedea thinks American Idol Is Dead. I definitely agree when it comes back next year it needs a major overhaul (and a couple of new judges that can actually put two sentences together).
