American Idol Top 7 "Shocker" - Page 2
I feel that Steven Tyler's statement, "We are going to use our Judges' Save tonight" was premature. Elise Testone was also in the bottom three and has been there off and on since week one. To save her would have been utterly foolish. I actually don't disagree with using the save for Jessica. They have to use it before the Top 5 anyway. Up until last night, I would have assumed that she would at least make it to the Final 3. I certainly would have used it if Joshua had been the one receiving the lowest votes. But now, two contestants will go home next week.
If I may now indulge the reader in the contestant whom I felt was most worthy of a standing ovation last Wednesday....Colton Dixon. His performance of Love the Way You Lie had me on the edge of my seat and left me with chills.
This poor guy has never received the ultimate price of seeing the judges on their feet. He has received abundant praise, but geez...throw the kid a bone! And more importantly, send the message to the voters that you feel this guy could win it.
I think that Holly Cavanaugh and Elise Testone will go home next week, or at least they should. Anything other than that outcome will prove the judges save was costly.
