My prediction earlier today was almost correct...but I'm happy to say ALMOST! Michael Sarver was saved and Alexis Grace went home. It was another cruel episode where the judges said, "We're thinking about saving you." They already told her last night that they hated her song choice...then they tell her to sing it again to save herself. WHAT? Can you say nerve racking? Of course she did terrible. Several notes were off key and she was obviously trying too hard to make the song sound better.
To be perfectly honest, I don't think it was only the song...her personality was very boring and flat last night. She didn't portray that likable quality that she had presented on previous shows. Not to mention Randy Jackson couldn't even remember her name and called her "Allison" as in Allison Iraheta, who was actually already in the bottom three standing there awaiting her fate.
After Alexis finished singing, Simon told her that they weren't going to save her. I can't begin to tell you how much this new rule irritates me. Two slaps in the face...let's just kick them while their down! Once again I have to tell you that my idea is better. Tell them they're voted off, play the music and have one of the judges jump up and say, "We're going to save you!" The show will still have the suspense, drama, and no more contestant humiliation.
There is definitely a lot of media drama going on. Now there's even talk of the American Idol result show being rigged. I guess American Idol needs to keep up the big ratings this year. In Hollywood, the more you're talked about, positive or negative, the more people tune in.
