Another shocking elimination tonight as Colton Dixon, who many thought had a good chance of winning, was sent home. As you may recall the judges used their save on Jessica Sanchez last week so there was nothing they could do to save Colton.
Vote for the Worst is encouraging people to vote for Phillip Phillips, who they really dislike for some reason. Last week they claimed victory in messing with the results. Apparently they want a white guy who plays the guitar to win?? Not sure what that’s all about but I don’t think I want to understand their logic.
Losing isn’t always a bad thing on American Idol. Look at Chris Daughtry. This gives Colton a jumpstart on his music career instead of wasting a year doing what AI wants him to do and waiting too long to release his first album. Hopefully he will strike while the iron is hot and take advantage of his time on national television!
Looks like the Daughtry curse claimed James Durbin tonight. I am shocked. After delivering too solid performances last night and being a front-runner most of the season I did not expect this. James said he had a feeling today. I thought James would win 😦
Scotty, Lauren and Haley will advance toward the finale.
