American Idol 6: Top 7 Elimination

Last night was as mediocre as mediocrity could get and yet it's getting even more difficult to predict who will get the boot tonight. I couldn't say for sure that I was HELLA SURE that a specific contestant was being eliminated, because there are now so many factors that go into getting kicked out.

Will they stay in because of their performance? Because of their fans? Because I said so? Nothing's sure anymore and that really scares me. Last year, our prediction table was so dead on. It was such a predictable thing, and now, we only have 2 correct answers ALL SEASON. Last night, even the EW mindreaders couldn't single anyone out.

Despite Ryan Seacrest's ridiculous objections, I thought Simon was being rather gentle when he described the increasingly (and annoyingly) self-aware teenage crooner's ''Something to Talk About'' as ''utterly horrendous.'' Indeed, the last note of nearly every one of Sanjaya's lines evaporated like water on a frying pan — only there was nothing remotely hot about his interminable, listless performance, which lagged behind the beat, contained scads of flat notes, and worst of all, showcased the teenage crooner's attempts at riffing on the beloved Bonnie Raitt hit. If a melody can be choked to death, then tonight ''Something to Talk About'' is fighting for its life in the musical ICU. The potential good news is — and maybe it's just wishful thinking — Sanjaya was so joyless tonight that I believe he'll be going home on Wednesday.

Wow, even the gods at CW had a difficult time predicting this. They're usually dead on about who they think will get the boot but last night, it was all up in the air. They got the bottom 2 out of 3, but this is really getting more difficult.

Sanjaya Malakar - Eliminated April 18, 2007
Again, I'm not going to pretend that I'm not breathing a sigh of relief. Sanjaya should have gone home a long time ago and though anti-Sanjaya peeps are rejoicing right now, I kind of feel bad for him. Call me a sucker for cheesy television, but for some reason, despite ranking him lowest all the freaking time, I was hoping he'd stay just ONE MORE week. I didn't care if Lakisha would get the boot. Again, that chick's got pipes, but Sanjaya's got controversy. And yes, it's still a talent contest, so talent is needed, but since he lasted that long, there must be something else he's got. Still, if I had to choose between kicking Blake or Sanjaya out, you obviously know what my answer would be. I feel bad mostly for Rickey -- the biggest FANAJAYA ever (even bigger than Ashley) -- because this guy just lived for Sanjaya. Sanjaya had a long enough run, I'm just wondering how things will be without him.

Still, I shouldn't feel too bad for Sanjaya, because really, he's the biggest thing about this season. He's had the most buzz and controversy around him and he's definitely made use of his more than 15 minutes of fame. If this kid works it out right and caters to his "niche" market, then he'll definitely go a long way. The question is, who will VoteForTheWorst target next? They're thinking a Phil or Chris, but it's still up in the air.

So Dad gets his first correct this season. Our prediction table is getting even more depressing than usual. And yet another one gone. The Idols are down to 6 and things are getting even more difficult to predict. In fairness, I actually like everyone in the top 6 -- this is a miracle.
