Last night’s performances indicated the depth of talent on this season of American Idol. Usually at this point in the competition there are still a few people who really do not deserve to be there. We all have our favorites and some people are definitely more talented than others; but this is the first year with eleven contestants remaining that I will be sad to see anyone go home.
James Durbin continues to amaze me along with Jacob Lusk and Pia Toscano. Naima Adedapo was vastly improved this week. Paul McDonald delivered a solid performance and I was glad to see him break out the guitar. Scotty was his usual charming self. So far today, the American Idol “Who was the Best?” poll ranks the contestants in this order: James Durbin, Scotty McCreary, Jacob Lusk, Pia Toscano and Thia Megia in the top five with 22, 936 people voting. Stefano and Haley have the lowest scores.
Gordon Ramsey was in the audience last night and greatly annoyed me when he turned his nose up at Mrs. Langone’s penne. What a SNOT! He wouldn’t even try it. Not cool Gordon.
If the poll is any indicator of the voting, Stefano and Haley will definitely be in the bottom three with a toss-up between Lauren and Naima.
