All the theories in the world don’t mean squat sometimes.
The bottom three were Nadia, Jessica, and Anwar. I got one out of those three.
Sadly, one of the best singers this week and so far this season is now gone. I’m not delusional; I know Jessica wasn’t going to win it all. In the end, this is just a whittling down process. Jessica was going to be cannon fodder. But when you listened to her sing last night, or singing “Total Eclipse” last week, you have to think it’s a tragedy that she’s gone all of a sudden.
Simon is right in that she never quite made that connection with fans. Singing quality isn’t the be-all and end-all of the pop music world. Popularity does count, as much as the judges tried to convince America otherwise tonight. Jessica didn’t quite get there. Her fan base never solidified. Now, she’s gone. I’m officially a Carrie man now.
Carrie should be very happy tonight. She’s the biggest winner. The two singers in the competition that would split votes with her — Lindsey and Jessica — are now gone. Carrie’s going to be in the Top Three now, almost for certain.
Nadia should be scared. Vonzell is paired up with her, and is pulling ahead. Two bottom three appearances in a row are not deserved for Nadia. Vonzell’s upside is starting to show through right now, and Nadia has one off week and pays for it two weeks in a row.
We’ll see what happens next week. I want to get rid of Scott, still. . .
As for the rest of the show:
The group singalong stunk again, but the commercial was their funniest one yet. Very cute.
