Kinda bummed that Emily Brooke got eliminated. She deserved a spot in the Top 24. I like Sonika’s voice, but after seeing what she did in group rounds I don’t think she has the right personality to be the next American Idol. Should have left Emily and took out Sonika.
I meant Top 14 not Top 24.
I was surprised about Emily too. I really thought she was going to make it over some of these other contestants.
Me too! She is STRONG! I think they will send Shelbie Z through, and she is good too, but why can’t 2 country singers go through? I liked Jenna Renae as well. MOST of my favorites are in the next group of 12, so many of my favs will get cut there, too. The producers are completely taking control of this IMO.
Producers can paint whatever picture they want in post-production. They want to shock us with the possibility that sonika is a mean girl. Its a tv show before it is a competition. Lots of people that seem nice on tv are actually terrible in real life. Hard to say.
If Colette Lush didn’t get eliminated and isn’t in top 24 then what is going on? Did she withdraw or something? The girl is probably the best vocalist in the competition so what’s up? Anyone know?
She was eliminated. She sang a Meghan Trainor’s Like I’m Gonna Lose You. Harry told her she had a great audition but hasn’t been connecting with them ever since so they cut her.It was the last episode that aired I believe. Too bad she didn’t make it.
How does Jeneve make it?!? She is so bad. Emily is light years better than her, and she’s eliminated? Makes sense.
I seriously cannot believe that La’Porsha made it through. The woman is a cartoon. Where is Simon to ask her if she owns a mirror?
Blanche, there was quite a bit of controversy last season when no black big-voiced female was in the TOP 10. It was the first time in 14 years that this happened. The first time I heard La’Porsha sing, I knew she would fill that role. She has a whole lot of soul in her voice. Idol will do a make-over and she’ll be mentored. Maybe by Fantasia? BTW, I find your comment about a mirror to be cruel. La’Porsha may be a good, kind person. The other contestants really like her. To me, that’s what counts.
Her hair is crazy but I think that’s to stand out. Her voice is really amazing and she is very serious about her daughter & creating a good life for her. She really has a lot of soul if you just close your eyes and listen. She is not my favorite by any means, but my husband thinks she’s going top 3. Different strokes for different folks I guess.
NOOO!! Emily and James should’ve been in the top 10!! Jeneve is indeed unique, but she has nothing special in her voice. Thomas, he’s too young and his experience in music industry is waaay more amateur than the eliminated people.
My favorite was Brandyn Burnette from St. Louis who sang his original song “Lost” on piano during auditions and Harry sneaked up behind him and hugged him. He voluntarily withdrew & did not use his Hollywood ticket. Something about not wanting Idol to get his song or sign that ridiculous contract if he advanced far enough. I get it. I also liked Poe and she just packed up and left but she said she wasn’t ready. Props for being honest.
Blown away that Jessica Cabral, gorgeous girl who never gave a a bad performance didn’t advance. Also Malie Delgado who nailed her songs SICK and Sara Sturm were good enough to advance.
I’m REALLY, REALLY irritated Emily Brooke is NOT going to be in top 14. I thought she was a contender to go very far! Clearly the producers are taking total control of this & they already have who they want picked out. Shelbie is a strong, great country singer but why couldn’t BOTH go through? They can only have 1 country singer? Heck, The Voice was stacked with them this season. I also liked Jenna Renae.
My top 14 would be in no particular order (My top 5 fav’s starred *)
MacKenzie (who has grown leaps & bounds since The Voice)
Adam (so underrated! They barely show him!)
Dalton (not the strongest singer but his flaws work together & make him good & interesting & draws me in totally)
(A tie between Avalon, Amelia, LaPorsha)
I already know so far 2 of my picks on this list are out but what can you do? I don’t dislike Gianna as much as some others. She can sing-her last performance was excellent but I can’t imagine cutting Emily & Jenna but sending her. That’s all. Producers have an agenda.
Almost sure eliminations are tonight for group 2.
Can’t believe Trent didn’t make it. It’s so obvious they want a girl to win this season. The guys were stronger this year, but idol wants a girl to win. So they get rid of the talent. SHAME
He made it. TIP was given the wrong info. I would’ve been pissed if they were actually true because he is one of the only contestants that has a real shot of winning this competition.
I love mackenzit he should win
Im not a real fan of la poursha
Who would win mackenzie or dalton
I pick mackenzie
Trent is my 2nd favorite
