‘American Idol’ top 11 results live blogging

The Zap2it blog expert panel consensus departure is Haley Reinhart (21), followed by Thia Megia (6) and one lone pick for Stefano Langone. I am part of the consensus this week but I’m definitely due for a mistake. It really could be Thia. Pleasant and dull is not a ticket for victory.

I’m here and staying away from live blogging tonight. Apparently my ability to multitask is sadly limited and I can’t watch and chat at the same time.

So JT..if you’ve made it out of the storms, I will keep you informed this evening.

And linny…we miss you too sweetie!

Naima, Haley, Casey on stage…Naima is safe……Casey, bottom 3. Haley safe.

Deirdre

If the judges use the save tonight, the person who gets the lowest number of votes next week will be out of the top 10.

Deirdre

March 24th, 2011

The person who gets the second lowest number of votes next week will also be eliminated but will be part of the top 10

That reaction by Casey really shows how real of an artist he is. He was All In on that song and when they cut him off you could see all that emotion coming out through his hands – like when you wake real fast from a deep sleep. Epic show tonight.

Night all. I will be gone until Monday. I am headed for San Antonio and a big wing-ding over the weekend with the SA Symphony and Donald Braswell and the fan club. Two concerts with the symphony and meeting friends from all over the country who gather for these events.

D, you are a sooth-sayer! JT, I hope you were able to see this tonight. Talk to y’all on Monday

That was a real nail-biter tonight. I’m glad Casey is still in this thing. It sounds like most of us are.

I normally watch this on a small TV, and I’m in a hotel room in Little Rock right now with a 42″ screen. Daaaaaaang, I do not think I like a life-size J-Lo in my room.

Craziest results show I’ve ever seen. Stevie, Sugarland, Hulk Hogan, JHud AND the save!!!! All in one night!

Congrats Deirdre! Epic call for you. You should replace Randy on next year’s judges panel. Wow, big show tonight. I really was thinking Casey was about to lose it. Could the drama be staged??? I’m having my doubts, but it was still great TV.

Deirdre

March 24th, 2011
10:09 pm

Nothing set up…everybody loved Casey at the beginning, then with each performance he was disappointing…others were better, Casey wasn’t getting the votes…pretty soon, people, like every year, are trying to save the people they like who don’t do well…Stefano, Haley…people are voting for them thinking that Casey is safe…or not thinking about it at all.

It’s how a popular singer gets eliminated every year…voters start focusing on saving a bad singer who is a nice person and the good singers get left on the side of the road.

And if I was right about Casey being eliminated…then the save part was obvious. Seriously, though…it was just dumb luck! ;-)

They stage a lot of stuff on Idol but the look on Ryan’s face when Casey nearly collapsed said omg to me. He was looking for help from backstage.

Just saw your post Harriett. We are waiting for you here in San Antonio. I’m here from Denver and the others from VA, FL, NV, OH, ID, NY, OK and others..and of course TX. Donald is going to knock everyone’s socks off. Talk about an American Idol!

All I can say is I am so disappointed in American idol producers
There ia no way Casey was voted off!!!!
So the show decided to add drama by faking he was voted off only to
SAVE him! I don’t believe any of our votes really count!
I will never watch and believe the show is real again.
The American people are not stupid
I will couture to watch only because the talent is a beautiful thing to see.
SHAME ON YOU show producer!!!!!

The Truth

March 25th, 2011

This show made me sick. And all of you tone deaf idiots out there that think Casey can actually sing makes me sick too. The Judges WASTED the save on Casey. The 3 worst singers in the competition are, in no particular order, Thia, Casey, and Naima. Both Thia and Naima have a horrible range. They both sound like crap when they try to go low or high. Both have about an 8 note range, difference between the 2 is that Thia sounds good in hers, Naima doesn’t. A singer should not be on this show with ONLY a 1 octave range. Casey while musically talented can’t sing either. All he can do is grumble and growl, and he uses that to mask his lack of vocal talent.

While many people don’t like Haley, she CAN sing and is very talented. She has close to the best control of her voice. Her changes between head and chest voice are nearly impeccable. And I’m laughing to myself because a good majority of you probably don’t know what that is. Many professional singers can’t do it, well. Haley’s problem is that she’s trying to do to much with each song. It’s too early in the stages for that. Take Pia for example. She’s keeping it simple, stupid. BUT, doing it PERFECTLY. I don’t think she’s missed a note yet.

James is another story. While he’s a good singer, I’m tired of him already. He is this years Adam Lambert, with 2 differences: He’s straight and not as good.

I’d go on with each of them, but you all have enough of The Truth for now. I will leave you with this. The Top 5 should be:

Pia
Scotty
Lauren
Stefano
Jacob

Yeah, yeah, James should be in there, but like I said, we had a better him 2 years ago!!!

I could not believe that anyone can possibly say that Casey Abrams can sing. He is a screamer. That song he was singing when Randy cut him off was horrible. Is this what our music tastes have gone to. He might be a nice guy, but he is one of the worst singers that I have ever head, and America must agree. They have voted him off twice, and the judges keep saving him. There is definitely something going on here. This show is nothing but junk and now someone else who didn’t get voted off will suffer. So unfair….

I will say it again, screaming and jumping up and down is not singing. You might call them a singer but I call them entertainers and not too good at that.
