American Idol 7: Top 8 Elimination

Wow. Their performances on inspirational night were far from inspirational. They inspired me mostly to turn off the television. The studio versions gave a little glimmer of hope though. Maybe everyone was just having a rough week, considering they had to pre-tape "Idol Gives Back."

Last year, they did the no elimination on Idol Gives Back. I doubt they're doing it again this year. But hey, shocker elimination is always in store for us. Who do you think will get the boot?

So Pamy and Paola got it right this week and I have to say I'm not happy they did. I was hoping Pio would get it right just so we could get rid of Kristy already. But alas, the "shocker" elimination was due soon, I just didn't know they would let go of Michael like that.

I was hoping for ANY of the girls to get the boot because I wanted the 4 boys to make it to the top 4!!! Pamy and I were even joking that Top 4 would be "Britney Week" and we'd let Michael sing "Don't Let Me Be The Last To Know" and "I'm a Slave 4 U" just because he was the only one with enough sexiness and masculinity to pull it off without straying.

I was really excited to see him on Mariah Carey week too. And Andrew Lloyd Webber week!!! Why won't they kick ANY of the girls out?!? I'm not even singling Kristy anymore. Carly or Syesha could have gone and I wouldn't care. I would even let go of Brooke. Yes, I ranked him last, but I didn't want him to go!!! Not now.
Since Michael Johns is up first, he stays put at the side of the stage, taking his time getting there and savoring every moment in the spotlight. The red light and the Jim Morrison vibe suits him, and the crowd goes wild as soon as the chorus to "Dream On" kicks in. Paula's feeling some MJ love too, and once he hits the falsetto, quickly hops to her feet with a "you the man" finger pointed in his direction.

It's like he already knew he was going to tonight. I sometimes believe this show is rigged and yet I continue to watch it like a crackwhore waiting for her next hit. I'm not the only one thinking it's rigged though. Obviously, Rickey does too.
I was already thinking of a Michael Johns elimination yesterday because he sang at #1, and the “natural order” is really for him to go at this stage of the competition... What stopped me obviously was Michael Johns’ sales on iTunes indicating voting and fan strength (in the real world)... But alas, just as I had suspected, this show is rigged. I can only say this now with more certainty because of my voodoo iTunes charts. Figures don’t lie. Syesha Mercado has no fans and we all know it. The result tonight was impossible if this show was truly based on votes.

Michael Johns - Eliminated April 11, 2008
Though I wasn't his biggest fan in the beginning, Michael slowly but surely won me over with his soulful sexy performances. His video introductions were always killer too -- that accent, the tennis playing and oh yeah, the wife. But really, I loved his "Across the Universe." When I saw him perform that, I was blown away. This guy had it in him!!! Then he did "We Will Rock You" and though it wasn't my favorite vocal performance, you could see that he knew how to work a crowd and just knocked me down.

But really, I'll always treasure "It's All Wrong, But It's Alright" because that is hands down, the sexiest live performance EVER this season. His sex appeal was so strong, that I could feel it come off the screen as he telepathically impregnated me (and I'm sure thousands of ovulating women all over the world) during those 1:43 minutes he was on stage. G'bye, mate. You will be missed.
