If your favorite was booted off tonight and you didn't vote, it's your fault.
Take a look at season seven's top 12 contestants! The melting pot of an interesting CD. Which one of these contestants do you think will not make the tour? Who do you consider the weakest link?
There were four contestants who came so close to Idol fame. But they were cut tonight. Whether you are "the Idol" or not, if you make it for the tour, you'll go down in AI history.
Ryan Seacrest said there were more than 36 million votes in this week. And if that TMZ spy was right yesterday - that means the girls picked up about 16 million votes and the guys carried the rest.
When Kady Malloy sang us off I was thinking -- quick -- can't she impersonate someone right now. Yikes, get yourself out of that mess girl!
It was like I was expecting her to do a magic trick. That song portrayal was pretty lousy the first time around. Did we really need to be subjected to that again?
Luke Menard was almost the same thing. Well, he was much better though. So I guess I can't really say that. It's just that I wanted the song to be over before it started. His Wham impersonation was a bit cheesy. And after a while of it -- you're like, oh good God!
When Luke was given the bad news, a "flying high" Paula stood up, and babbled about how "this is the first day of the rest of your life..." Ryan chimed in to her spiel saying to the judge, "we're going to get you a catheter and (to Luke) you're going to sing right now."
Break out the tissues, Asia'H Epperson's AI future is clear. This just goes to show you to vote for your favorite contestant! It really already is "that time" in the competition.
For any of you who happen to not know, Asia'H's father died in a car crash a few days before her audition. Instead of just giving up this year, she went for it anyway. Despite the adversity, she made it this far. Amazing.
Based on performances throughout this competition, Asia'H NEVER should have left.
Paula spoke out about her too, "This is one brave, beautiful, talented star. You're tenacious and your brilliant. God bless you!" Asia'H told America, "This wont be the last time you see me."
I thought the other goner was going to be Kristy Lee Cook. Let me rephrase that. I thought it should be Kristy Lee, but was skeptical that AI would lose her. Kristy is pretty popular with the fellas.
People might start talking about the fix being on. A situation like this gets you wondering about that kind of stuff.
Ok, let's go there. AI, this year, doesn't have that country influence. Her attempt at it this week is all that's out there for the show, really. And although she hasn't truly perfected that genre, she has plenty of time to hone in and correct her country-style voice before the CD and.. if it goes that far -- the tour.
Wow, did you see how different Danny Noriega looked during his audition? Can you imagine just how fine tuned and polished he'd be if he was able to continue on in this competition? He said, during the auditioning process, "I want people to look up to me, relate to me. I want people to be my fan."
Noriega was another contestant who could have stuck around and added color to the American Idol season seven crew. But what it all comes down to is your vote. YOUR vote. So if you aren't dialing for your pick, who's going to?
Next week, we get to hear how the top 12 sing together on the two hour show Tuesday. The results show is an hour long. And that is on Wednesday.
How do you feel about this season so far?
