Once again America screwed up the vote and got it all wrong. I think there should be a way to ban all people under the age of 18 from voting for the contestants on American Idol. All the teeny-and-tweeny-boppers using mom's cell phone are voting for the cutest and not the most talented contestant. I wish there was something we could do about this.
Skylar Laine was the recipient of the bad news when all the dust had cleared last night and her run has come to an end that is very premature for her accomplishments. She and Hollie Cavanagh were the bottom two, and it should have not been that way. This was the week that Phillip Phillips gave the worst performance of his tenure on the show and he got away with it because all the 'little girls' think he is so cute.
If Phillips wins this thing this year, that is it. I will never watch American Idol again. The next two week are going to be very crucial for all the finalists and Phillips cannot afford another bad performance. I wanted to see an all-female Final Four this year, but that went by the wayside weeks ago when they sent Elise Testone home instead of Phillip Phillips.
So now we have Jessica Sanchez, Hollie Cavanagh, Joshua Ledet and Phillips. The Finals had better pit Ledet against Sanchez or I will scream.
This season is really unpredictable. I think American Idol needs to change the way you can vote. I know its been brought up before in past seasons, but this year proves it.
Anyway I still think Joshua will end up winning. Hollie surprised me this week, and I enjoyed her performances better than Joshua and Jessica. I know I'm in the minority, but Joshua is overrated for me. Personally he tends to "scream" sometimes, and it just doesn't work for me. When he doesn't do that he is brilliant (like his first song this week).
Also what is wrong with Phillip? They have said the past 2 weeks that he feels bad, and its amazing he is still in the competition. I know he isn't in the Ford Music videos either.
