Did American Idol just prove our ‘Roommate Elimination’ conspiracy theory?

This is too good to be true or in this case too bad to be true for American Idol. Couldn’t they be any more obvious?

Tonight’s Top 11 results proved two things. First America got it right to eliminate Paige Miles. After her shaky rendition of the worst song
pick of the night (sang almost every season!) “Against all Odds” which she accepted openly as a ‘poor performance,’ she deserved to go. Against our will, Tim Urban makes it on tour despite mediocre talent or lack thereof and we can only blame Paige for not fighting her right to stay in the competition!

That leads us to second, we have been speculating on a conspiracy theory that we caught on from exit interviews of eliminated contestants and call us crazy but we didn’t make this up, since Top 24- almost all of the contestants who are roommates or become roommates get eliminated!

We would like to hear an explanation from American Idol! If you know a mathematician or statistician, please ask them, what are the odds of this happening?!! If the contestants fate rely on the people’s vote week after week, how does one explain the phenomenon of having two roommates go on the same night?! Not once did this happen, not twice but four times! Doesn’t that sound downright puzzling?

American Idol may have committed yet another oversight and blunder by letting the idols talk about who they’re rooming in with. It wouldn’t even raise a flag if (sorry Lilly!) Lilly Scott didn’t stir the pot calling it strange. She opened the proverbial Pandora box! When asked, what her expectations were going into the results show, she candidly replied:

“You know, the people I thought were going to go home were completely different than the people that left, including myself. It’s really strange things, like people that are roommates have gone home on the same night. It’s really strange.

Katelyn and I were roommates and Todrick and Alex were roommates and Janell and Ashley were roommates … but that might be a twist of fate, and how it works out, I don’t know.”

These people were eliminated on the same night and were roommates:

1. Ashley Rodriguez/Janell Wheeler – booted Top 24
2. Katelyn Epperly/Lilly Scott – booted Top 16
3. Alex Lambert/Todrick Hall- booted Top 16

Could it be that John Park and Jermaine Sellers ended up being roommates when they were axed during the Top 20? Obviously, when Haeley Vaughn was eliminated during Top 20- she was roommates with her mother since she’s under 18. Haeley was paired with Michelle Delamor to go that night. Michelle was roommates with Crystal Bowersox at the start of Top 24 until she was gone on Top 20 night.

Katie Stevens who is 17, is roommates with her mom.

But can it really be that out in the open, happening before our very eyes?

It gets better!

When Lacey Brown was eliminated, she revealed that she was roommates with Paige Miles!!! We suggested the idea that maybe Paige will go home this week BUT shoved it because we really wanted Tim Urban gone!! We thought Idol would play the 5 girls, 5 guys card going on the Summer tour this season- which could have meant Tim goes and Paige stays.

Then again, it would have broken up Idol’s current rooming arrangements… How hard is it to pack and move when as we understand, the contestants only get to have one suitcase?

7/30 So You Think You can Dance 5 Results Night, get ready for your Top 4 finalists

ade_melissa

All right we are very pleased with the results. There’s no way we are watching the Finale without Jeanine Mason in it! We already lost Janette Manrara and she should have been in the finale instead of Kayla.

When it came down to the guys, Brandon and Evan (except for Philip Chbeeb) really have been the more popular among the guys so it’s no surprise to see them in the finale. Then again maybe Ade should have been in the finale.

In tonight’s results, we bid farewell to a Ballerina and a Contemporary dancer: Melissa Sandvig and Ade Obayomi respectively. We wonder if word got around about the racy photos Ade purportedly posted on a website mostly catering to gay men. Has executive producer Nigel Lythgoe knew about the photos and fixed the elimination of Ade to do damage control? Or the fans were turned off and did not vote for him. (Sorry we can’t post the link of the website here, we don’t want to be associated with it. You’ll just have to google it if you really want to see the alleged pics.)

The show featured four of the Emmy nominated dances and it was a real treat to see them on TV again. Most especially we get to see the dancers who made the dance even more exciting. There was something off in all their dancing though and when we put up the video you’ll see what we mean. It wasn’t as smooth and flawless as we remembered it done. We even saw the live performances in the tour. Perhaps because it has been a while since they danced together as partners and we’re sure the rehearsal time was limited for them. Over all, it was great! Nice feat for SYTYCD if any of these dances do win the Emmy.

7/16 So You Think You Can Dance 5 Top 10 Results, Ade nearly calls it Anite

Well, not much surprise for us tonight. The two we thought would be eliminated were, and on the women’s side, our second pick for elimination was in the bottom two. Ade was the only dancer that did not belong, and we thought it like last year when Twitch was threatened, but really, had no business even gracing the bottom anything.

By the way, we would like to mention we met Twitch at one of the performances last year in Boston. Twitch was more gracious and more willing to please his fans than any dancer we have seen. He signed and took pictures and tried to please everyone in a very chilly environment in which he could have easily waved and departed. Twitch was not our favorite last year in the dance competition, but he is our favorite personality from SYTYCD to date. He is our favorite SYTYCD performer since its inception because he has grace and presence with his audience as well as on the stage.

randi_kupono_eliminatedAll that said, we were sad that we were right about Randi. Randi got a “luck of the draw” elimination. The Paso Doble eliminated her, and the costume directors eliminated her, and Kubono’s weak performance eliminated her. There was way too much weight on the poor girl. Tonight, she showed her incredibly cute personality, and you could see it was an error to have sent her home this week. But that draw of the cards was drawing a 2 on a high card draw. No matter how well you drew the card, it was still a 2. But she bowed out holding that two with total grace and personality, something we will remember her for.

On the men’s side, we were surprised that Ade made it to the bottom 2. We think perhaps it is his kind of goofy look that, at times, steals from his ability to be the leading man. Joshua had no such problem with any goofy smile. Oddly, Twitch did, but it endeared us to him and he better controlled it. Ade’s smile does not endear, it just makes you think he is a goofy kid. That is sad to say because we love his talent and think it nearly unsurpassed this year, but it may be his undoing. But then, Twitch learned and recovered, and so may Ade.

But the fact is… Kupono called it a night, and the audience called for Ade. Kupono was done tonight and had to be. Again, this was a partially because of a draw of the cards. That Paso Doble was very difficult. But the champions like Joshua pull those dances out of the fire and make them memorable. The lesser dancers cannot present the strength and personality necessary, and Kupono went down in flames taking Randi with him. Kupono dances much like his mentor, Mark Kanemura, but he has a feminine look and no evil or strong persona that could have pulled out that dance like Mark did in this one… He lost because he deserved to lose, combined with the luck of the draw because the dance he was forced to dance did not match his personality.

So there you have it. Kupono and Randi are gone. Randi should not be, and Kupono deserved to be. Melissa is skating on thin Nutcracker ice. We think she is in definite danger to be next. On the men’s side it is totally up in the air.

7/9 So You Think You Can Dance 5 Results Shape Up Who is going on tour. Guess what? All 12 Go!

We love to blow our own horn. Of course we do. Who doesn’t? But we were off just a bit. The audience put Melissa and Ade in the bottom 3 and both of them did solos that left little down the vote was wrong. They don’t have the sex appeal of the other dancers, but they have a strength that will not be easily eliminated. SAFE.

Our other favorite from last night, in fact our absolute favorite by far… Jeannette and Brandon – were obviously proclaimed safe.

Kayla & Kupono were the top of our bottom four. We were not overly enthused by Kupono last night, but Kayla was awesome. So what do you do? The audience decided to keep them…SAFE.

Randi and Evan were not up to snuff last night, especially Evan. But they have that American apple pie vote. And their victory kicked out Jeanine and Phillip, another pair in our bottom four.

Jeanine and Phillip were interesting last night in their performances. Jeanine was spectacular and it would be good to see her dance with real broad-based male talent. Phillip was fun, but is not diverse in any way. We wanted him gone weeks prior. They could not eliminate one of the best dancers on the floor just to to keep Phillip. So they didn’t. Phillip got the boot, but will be on the tour anyway.

caitlin_philip_eliminatedCaitlin and Jason were great but boring. Their dances just weren’t memorable. They did not grab us and make us want tot grab that phone. America agreed. Bottom three and our bottom of the bottom.

Jason shook off the disaster of being in the bottom three again, with a powerful, even if seemingly desperate, solo. And Phillip could not compete with the flex dance.

Caitlin was clearly in danger after the solos. It wasn’t because her solo was not on par with any of the great solos this year. It was because they remember her boring performances from last night, and because neither of the women competing against her were not within a hair of her performance, give or take. It was a dead heat, so last night’s dances came into play and the judges already had made up their mind based on that. We had as well. Goodbye, Caitlin. BUT NO!! Caitlin gets to go on the show!!!! They want BOLLYWOOD!!!
