You're probably wondering if you read regularly, what happened last week, why didn't I write? Well, I've been a little bit under the weather with some allergy/ sinus issues. As you can imagine, they're exhausting, but here I am, back and better than ever. The week started with me not agreeing with the results of The Voices. The wrong two people went home. The bottom three should have been Bria Kelly, Kat Perkins, and Delvin Choice deserved consequences for his bad song choice. Of course at the end of the night, everyone would have used #TheVoiceSave on Devlin because he's too talented, but to lose Bria and Kat would not have been that bad. In order to change my mind, they would need one amazing performance. Losing TJ Wilkins and Dani Moz was just wrong, never mind the fact that Tess Boyer was even in the bottom three. Come on America, get with it! None of those contestants were bottom three material. My real hope is that what should have happened last week happens this week.
I'm going to start with the bad news on American Idol, and it's two fold-- on performance night, there were very few performances that I would say knocked it out of the park, and second CJ Harris went home and once again Jessica Meuse avoided elimination. However, I don't think she will be able to hide this week. In fact my prediction for the final three, unless someone falls apart is Jena Irene, Caleb Johnson, and Sam Woolf. Look for Alex Preston to finish fourth and Jessica should make an exit this week in fifth place.
It was rock n' roll and country night on the show so each contestant sang two songs. Below is the order that each of them performed in. I put a number in front of each contestant's name indicating their placement in that particular round (in my humble opinion of course!). So, for example, I think Caleb won the rock round, and I think Alex won the country round. CJ and Jessica finished in fifth and sixth place in both rounds, so their place in the bottom two was justified.
For the first time, Jena had some pitch problems in both of her songs. Sam was confident on song one, but song two was all wrong for him. CJ suffered from picking the wrong songs in both rounds. Alex played it safe on song one, but song two was solid. Caleb's first song was stellar but song two was fodder. Jessica picked a great song one, but failed to move on stage literally, and song two was a hot mess.
