Re: American Idol 4/18 and 4/25
I was a little surprised to see Kellie go. I thought her established fan base might keep her in. But at this stage of the contest, if you have two bad weeks back-to-back, it can be deadly. She did handle it well. I was afraid there was going to be waterworks of biblical proportions.
My youngest was bummed though. She's been rooting for Kellie since Day 1. But I told her, in the end, everyone goes home except one person. And next year there will be a whole new set of people and most of this year's contestants will be forgotten. The shelf life of an AI contestant is like that of an Olympic skater.
Elliott has a great voice, but is still looking for his style and stage presence.
For a long time I thought it was going to be a Chris/Paris final, but it looks like Paris is vulnerable.
I still don't get the love for Taylor. He's fun and goofy like a favorite uncle, but he just isn't all that talented.
IMNSHO, it's a given that Chris will be in the final. Talent-wise, I still think Paris ought to be there, but I'm now thinking Katharine might be there instead.
Winter, spring, summer, or fall
