Idol: Another contestant hits the dust

I’ve been saying it right along, the girls are not as strong as the boys. And last night proved it when another girl was voted off. I think America got it right when they voted Thia Megia, Hayley Reinhart, and Karen Rodriguez into the bottom three. Karen had the least votes and so she headed home last night. I thought she should have gone home the week before, but Ashton Jones went home instead. Both were two of the weakest. Karen, Haley, and Naima Adedapo as well as Thia have been in the bottom three for the past three weeks.

“The next few weeks will probably continue the “all-girl parade of 'Idol' executions, featuring Haley, Naima and Thia, in that order, if the ladies don't get it together soon.” said critic Hillary Rothing. J.Lo was clearly lobbying for Karen during her performance but it’s highly unlikely that anyone will be getting the save this early on, especially if they’ve been in the bottom three more than once.

“I’m glad to see that Naima Adedapo will get another week to pull it together and finally pick an appropriate song,” said Rothing. “She's not the next 'American Idol,' I'm fairly certain (and sad) to say, but I'd like her to see her make it to the tour, at least. The same goes for Thia Megia, “who is now well aware that she needs to drop the dentist office ballads stat if she wants to stay in this thing.”

We'll have to wait and see if the girls have get to seriously showing and proving they’ve got what it takes, or we just might be looking at Lauren Alaina andPia Toscano as the only hope against 'American Idol's' “Y-chromosome winning streak.” (Rothing).

I ‘m betting on Pia to win over Lauren, but I think, in the end, it will be one of the guys who becomes America's Idol. And my favorites ar Casey and James.

      I know and I don't even like television that much...I'd rather read and write.

      Hi, Alek! I only watched Idol one season but am an avid fan of America's Got Talent. I can become infuriated when one of my favorite performers gets the ax. It's amazing how passionate we can become over these shows.

      Karen had problems with self confidence and musically with pitch. She may have been a nice person but I don't think she was star material...maybe she was a little too nice. I liked that she sang in Spanish, but I also think she was using that to get votes.

      I know I would have lasted the snap of 2 fingers as a teen and you are right - very professional for such young people. I loved Karen's vioce and her poise. This is the part I'm not fond of too - seeing folks get sent hoo

      I know what you mean about the maturity these teen-agers have. It's amazing. I didn't mature until I was 40. :=)

      Nancy, I also find that the girls are not as strong as the boys, and I don't anticipate one of them winning, but who knows the show is full of surprises. I am looking forward to Steve keeping his promise to sing with one of the contestants. By the way, when I watch these young people, I am admire their maturity and poise, especially the teens, I was not like that at their age, I was pretty awkward and clumsy. :)
