But great performances don't necessarily equal votes and as Pamy has repeatedly told me, she hates this year's Top 36 format. And in a way, I do too.
How can you kick out 9 people and just let three go through -- one boy and one girl plus someone else at that. How can there only be THREE great performances?! I wasn't sure if I was supposed to trust Dial Idol, but I guess they were right.
Of the three, I obviously think Danny is the most deserving to go. Not that Alexis and Michael weren't good, I liked them both. I just feel like Tatiana and Ricky (and I'll throw Anoop in the mix) were just better.
Then again, the I did rank Alexis and Michael in the top half of my list, so I guess they did stand a good chance. But let's not fret, the 9 still have a 'fighting' chance of making it to the final 12. They all have 1 out of 9 chances that they'll be the favored contestant of the judges for Wild Card. But if it's based on talent, then I feel that the judges are just left to choose between Anoop, Ricky and Tatiana. Start crossing your fingers.
Do you agree with the first three finalists of the Top 12?
Who do you think should be chosen for the Wild Card?
