Tonight on American Idol the showdown really heated up. According to Ryan Seacrest the highest number of votes were cast for the season, reaching 53 million. The final seven were all hoping their fans lit up the phone lines to support them, but one did not get their wish.
The bottom three included the obvious choices of Elise and Hollie but Colton was a shocker. Although Jimmy Iovine finally got it right and said he may be in trouble, it seemed unlikely. I was kind of hoping it would be Skylar, but country fans are loyal and seem to back her all the way. In the end, it was a bit of a surprise when Colton was sent packing. While he originally was not one of my favorites, he clearly was more of an overall standout than the others.
So who will win it all? Well, if America gets it right, the finals should include Josh and Jessica. And I believe a female singer should take it all this year. A true American Idol is consistent…confident….powerful…and sincere. And she has it all.
On another note, is it just a coincidence that the votes increased right after Jessica made the bottom? Well, it definitely adds fuel to the rumors of Idol being rigged. I’m just saying…
Side note; why did JLo have the nappy hair? What was up with that? She clearly makes enough money for a hair brush.
