American Idol 7: Top 9 Elimination

No wonder no one sang 9 to 5 last night (it's their group song), but I read that it was supposed to be Chikezie's song. I would have wanted Ramiele to sing it, or even Kristy, but I guess the producers kept the song for the group thing.

Ayway, that's besides the point. I loved their cheesy dancing during this performance. Michael and David C dancing is not a good sight. This is definitely comic relief.

And I got it right this week!!! Although I didn't want Ramiele to go, I guess it was her time. I'm just pissed because Kristy still lives another week when she should have gone during the Top 12. Poor Ramiele cause she misses "Idol Gives Back", but at least she goes on tour. This is sad. Especially after I read this from Popwatch. Looks like TPTB really wanted her gone. This was an account of how the producers totally "stacked the deck against Ramiele."
First, if you noticed, she got no lighting-package love. And after I caught Nigel doing a silly hoe-down move as she sang (out of fun or mockery, I couldn't tell), I realized he directed it towards Carly Smithson and Jason Castro, standing in the wings. Huh. Not so normal to see contestants out on the floor during another's performance. Nor is it to see a stagehand walk said contestants out into the audience during said performance to position them right behind the judges for the ad break shot.

They both looked all kinds of uncomfortable as they upstaged Ramiele, and indeed I can think of no reason to do this other than guaranteeing that a good half of the eyes in the room weren't watching the woman on stage, thereby undercutting that ephemeral and ever-important "connection with the audience." And it worked; I can't even remember what Ramiele was wearing, let alone singing.

Ramiele Malubay - Eliminated April 3, 2008
I guess part of Ramiele's charm to me was her being Filipina. Just as I rooted for Jasmine, I wa so happy when Ramiele made it to the Top 24 and even more ecstatic when she broke into the Top 12. Ramiele isn't an artist, really. She's more of a singer-singer and I guess that worked against her this season as everyone else on the show seems to be full of such artistic intergrity/creativity. I feel like if Ramiele appeared a few seasons back she would have made it further. I will miss her awesome edgy hair and her cute style. I thoroughly enjoyed her performance of "You Don't Have To Say You Love Me." Maybe she peaked too soon. Still, it was nice to see a Filipina back in the game. Paalam, Ramiele
