American Idol had over 71 million fans vote for their favorite contestants last night, breaking the record for the most number of votes during the Idol top four round. But with the males dominating the females this season, Haley and Lauren pulled through at the end when it counted most. This caused an upset, bumping the early favorite James Durbin out of the competition and leaving only one male remaining.
Durbin was the most consistent contestant of the season, so his inability to make the finals was a complete shock. Jennifer Lopez was brought to tears and Durbin seemed amazed to find himself out of the competition.
It was a tough fight to the finish, but with all the incredible talent, this was one of the most competitive seasons in a long time. The fact that Durbin did not make it to the top three, is probably due to fans assuming he was a sure bet into the finals.
It was unfortunate to see him leave, but I was happy to see Haley push through after all her near misses during the season. Looks like the final three are Haley, Lauren and Scotty. Which is a far cry from my original bet, Durbin was definitely on my list to make it all the way. He was my pick for The American Idol, so now the winner is anyone’s guess.
James Durbin is certain to make it big, so his fans should put away the tissue and just buy his upcoming CD’s. He was born a star.
Did America get it wrong?
