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?

American Idol 9 Andrew Garcia, Casey James and Katie Stevens lead the most fans in Facebook

Just for kicks we searched the names of all the Top 24 American Idol Season 9 contestants in Facebook and compared fan numbers. We weren’t surprise to see that Andrew Garcia (35,513), Casey James (23,583) and Katie Stevens (20,255) show the most number of fans with a combined total of 79,351 fans as of February 28th. These numbers were most likely related to the three doing so well in the Audition and Hollywood week, and not so much on their Top 24 performances. Good for them, they were the Idol producers’ favorites as well as the judges’ early picks- they had the most air time among all the contestants!

Surprise, surprise John Park comes in 4th with 18,370 fans. If we were judging based on his dry “God Bless the Child” Top 24 performance, we would have booted him and saved Joe Munoz instead! Poor Joe, he showed very little exposure on Idol that his cute Jason Mraz “You and I Both” didn’t save him from being cut. He’s got 2,049 fans on Facebook. Fifth in line with most fans is teeny-bopper crush material Aaron Kelly with 17,269.

Didn’t the judges openly admit they want a girl to win this year? While Facebook fan numbers isn’t necessarily a good predictor of who is going to win this season or who is leading on the Idol stage, it is somewhat close an indicator on who will at least make it to the top 12 to go on tour! The low turnout of fan numbers may also very well say that if something as easy as clicking a button on Facebook (“become a fan”) couldn’t do it, then people are not going to spend time and money to text the contestants number or push the dial on the phone.

The Top 12 American Idol Contestants based on number of Facebook fans:

Guys:

1. Andrew Garcia (35,513)
2. Casey James (23,583)
3. John Park (18,370)
4. Aaron Kelly (17,269)
5. Tim Urban (10,449) really? we thought he should “apologize” for his sloppy performance on AI night.
6. Lee DeWyze (8,211) dark horse among the guys!
7. Jermaine Sellers (6,250)

Girls:

1. Katie Stevens (20,255) sing contemporary, age appropriate songs and you’ll keep the lead.
2. Crystal Bowersox (9,810) the rocker mom’s got the nod!
3. Didi Benami (8,404) If you have the urge, please do not sing Colbie Caillat or Sara Bareilles, UNLESS you make a new arrangement of the songs; they’re too SAFE and easy and they’ve been so overplayed people are tired of hearing their songs. Surprise us!
4. Lacey Brown (7,019) she better do well on her next performance. the audience might not be forgiving the second time!
5. Siobhan Magnus (6,095) – dark horse among the girls!
6. Katelyn Epperly (5,144)
7. Lilly Scott (3,085) we think she should be in the top 12 but perhaps she is too “Indie” for an Idol platform so she’s not getting enough fans?

A twist is that Tyler Grady (8,191) has more fans than Jermaine or Alex and he was cut. Janell Wheeler (3,126) and Ashley Rodriguez (4,548) have more fans than Lilly Scott and they were both cut. If it isn’t too early to predict that the next to go are Michael Lynche (1,258): he’s a mediocre a capable singer really but lacks star quality; his backstory brought him to the Top 24 and/or Todrick Hall (4,353): takes too much risks! and or Alex Lambert (4,852): too uncomfortable on stage; can’t fight off the nerves and it shows in his face!

The next to go in the girls might or could be Michelle Delamor (1,559), too sound-alike, good voice but not enough and or Paige Miles (3,816): Simon really likes her but a lot of people do not know her well. Like Michelle, she didn’t get enough exposure during the audition and Hollywood week and or Haeley Vaughn (2,088): Haeley, dear Haeley, we would have voted you off based on that shrilly “I want to hold your hand” performance. You are the weakest link.

Any of them could go and they will not be missed on the Idol stage… Prove us wrong you guys!

2/10 American Idol Hollywood Round Three, 54 Remain

American Idol tonight was slightly better than the lackluster and horriblyly confusing Hollywood round one and two last week. It started off with the 72 remaining hopefuls divided into 4 groups in 4 separate holding rooms awaiting their fate and like the movie “Memento” drove us back to the beginning, then forward, then back.

The contestants were to sing solo onstage with back-up singers, live instruments and the whole shebang. They could choose to play their own instruments if they wanted. Ryan Seacrest initially said that the contestants were free to choose any song they liked but the songs repeated itself again and again as the show went on so it became obvious they were given a song list after all.

Hera are the names of those who made it past the judges’ deliberation in round three with some notes on some.

First up who made it was 1 Adam Lambert. He sang great except that he was trying to be a Cher sound-alike singing “Believe” and it just became too gay for comfort as the performance progressed. It wasn’t good at all. His background is in Professional Theater and his performance came off very theatrical not Idol material. If he makes it to the Top 36, we’re not sure if America would welcome a Broadway-American Idol crossover.

2 Matt Giraud was next. Performed a raspy and soothing “Georgia on my Mind” topped with his own piano accompaniment enough to impress all three judges, Paula, Randy and Kara- giving him the standing O.

3 Jamar Rogers sang Plain White T’s “Hey There Delilah.” He didn’t sing it bad, even gave the song his own twist but we’re not sure America is going to want to keep hearing “California Drea-e-e-e-ming” or “what you do to m-e-e-e” style of singing. It could grow old fast.

4 Danny Gokey’s “I Hope You Dance” has yet again put a giddy, school-girl with a crush, twinkly-eyed look on Paula Abdul. She gave him a standing ovation even before Danny finished his song. Danny Gokey as we have initially said is a very strong contender this season.

mishavonna_henson5 Anoop “geeky-guy” Desai, 6 Jorge Nunez (Neyo’s “Closer”) and 7 Scott “Visually impaired Guy” Macintyre (Chris Daughty “Home’) all made it!

As well as 8 Kendall Beard (performed Carrie Underwood’s “Before He Cheats”), 9 Stevie Wright (sang Colbie Caillat’s “Bubbly”),

and 10 Kristin McNamara -who belted it out with a huge Kelly Clarkson hit “Because of You”.

11 Lil Rounds did a flawless rendition of Alicia Keys’ “If I Ain’t Got you” -another strong contender.

12 Mishavonna Henson who we’re seeing for the first time was a Season 7 hopeful who got cut during last year’s round two in Hollywood Week. At least she stayed thru round three this year.

13 Jackie Tohn was shown playing her guitar but we never got to hear her sing! She made it along with 14 Frankie Jordan, 15 Alexis Grace and 16 Kenny Hoffpauer.

Say what?? The over-confident, mentally unstable(?) 17 Tatiana “annoying laugh” del Toro was in Top 54!

So was 18 Nathaniel “Emote King” Marshall who played his own guitar and sang Rihanna’s “Disturbia” while Idol played a montage of all his backstage drama in Hollywood.

Ju'not JoynerThis is where it got shocking! 19 Joanna Pacitti, a recording artist on her own couldn’t remember the lyrics to “If I Ain’t Got You.” 20 Casey Carlson, an early favorite forgot the words to Jordin Sparks “Tattoo.” It was painful to watch and hear them struggle as they fumble and eat the words of the songs. We now question the readiness of these two would be Top 12 contender. Of course Idol “saved” them here but if they couldn’t get over the nerves hitting them- it will be over for their Idol dreams.

21 Stephen Fowler, another good soulful singer also forget the words to Daughty’s “Home” and asked for a “Brooke White.” And he messed up again. He gave up, walks off stage and still managed to get into the Top 54!

We don’t really know what to make of 22 Nick Mitchell aka Norman Gentle. He is one character who could really sing but doesn’t fit all decorum of an American Idol. He sang “Georgia On My Mind” as his alter ego again and was entertaining but we really think he belongs in another show.

23 Ju’not Joyner is another hopeful whose only now making his TV appearance. He added some soul into “Hey There Delilah”, breezes through Top 54.

24 Jasmine Murray gave a disappointing rendition of “Tattoo”. We expected more from her.

megan_corkrey_idolIf 25 Kai Kalama didn’t make such a good impression on his audition, we would have sent him packing. His voice is going. He needs to do something about it- FAST! The judges gave him a break and passed him through.

26 Anne Marie Boskovich, 27 Michael Sarver, 28 Arianna Afsar (wasn’t given airtime on this episode), 29 Matt Breitzke, 30 Cody Shelman, 31 Felicia Barton, 32 TK Hash, 33 Alexander Wagner-Trugman, 34 Allison Iraheta, 35 Angela Martin, 36 Ashley Hollister, 37 Brent Keith-Smith, 38 Chris Chatman, 39 Derek Lavers, 40 Devon Baldwin, 41 Jackie Midkiff,

42 Jeanine Vailes, 43 Reggi Beasley, 44 John Twiford, 45 Lacey Brown, 46 Jessica Langseth, 47 Megan Corkrey, 48 Von Smith, 49 Perrie Cataldo, 50 Ricky Braddy, 51 Shera Lawrence, 52 Keating Holland, 54 Taylor Vaifanua completes the list of Top 54.

Among those who were cut: Michael Castro, India Morrison, Kaylan Loyd, Muna Hiluf and Leneshe Young.

Tomorrow, the Top 36 is revealed in a 2-hour show! Oh brother. See you…
