No Surprises on “American Idol” elims

Well, maybe a small surprise that Sanjaya is still around.

Guess that just goes to the power of good hair, or the appeal of androgynous-looking boys to girls with speedy dialing fingers.

Did you notice that two of the people who were eliminated sang the same song?

Honestly, the competition is Melinda Doolittle and LaKisha Jones, with Stephanie Edwards following closely. Not a single guy can match what the top two have already shown us.

Still, I’ve got a soft spot for Chris Sligh and hope he makes it into the finals.

Tonight, Nick Pedro was eliminated. He sang Peggy Lee’s “Fever”

And Leslie Hunt, who also chose the ill-fated tune “Feeling Good.”

Bah-bye.

    Hi Susan! I’m just a blogger who is spreading the word to other AI fans to make sure they know about http://www.votefortheworst.com/node. This website is really playing havoc with the shows results as the title tells exactly what they do. I’m urging my readers to vote for their favorites in order to keep them on another week. I used to just sit and watch the show, but after last week and this week, I have started voting!

    Like they say, if you don’t vote you can’t complain.

    Well, that is a different Kim above. 😉 OK, what the heck is Antonella still doing on the show? She was pure awful. I’m putting my chips on her being eliminated next week. I’m with you, Sue, on all your picks…and I have to add in that I adore Blake! He’s unique as far as male AI contestants go…
