What is wrong with America? How did the very best of the contestants get voted off the show? Can it be possible that there was a miscount or perhaps there were just so many people calling for Pia that her phone lines were completely jammed to the point where no one could get through and therefore the votes didn’t make it in for her. How the %$#* did this happen?!
There was looks of shock across the panel as well as on Ryan’s face, disbelief at what had just happened. The bottom three consisted of Pia, Stefano, and Jacob. One would this that, obviously, Jacob or Stefano is going home, and we’d be okay with that because that is going to happen eventually. They can’t compare to Pia’s greatness. But no. America decided that Pia was the one that needed to go home. First, Jacob was saved. Then the final result, Pia, Ryan said he name as if it were a question. Stefano looked up in disbelief because he knows he has nothing on her. Boos escaped from the audience immediately and it looked like Randy was about to explode, it almost looked like he mouthed out, “What the F**k.” No one on stage believed it. Jennifer was brought to tears, “I’m shocked, I’m angry, I don’t even know what to say.” Randy said, “You’re one of the best singers in this…no one is ever safe, if you thought that she was safe, look at where she is now, you didn’t vote. So, you gotta vote for whomever you love,” speaking directly to America who really messed this one up. “This makes me mad. What is going on.” Steven blamed America’s lack of passion. “Mistakes are one thing but lack of passion is unforgivable.” She received a standing ovation before leaving, which was well deserved but she should never had been eliminated.
Let us wake up in the morning and find out that this was just a dream. Or maybe we can change the rules and give the judges another save?!
She was very strong through the whole thing and she ended her time on Idol with, “I’ll Stand By You.” Fitting for the moment. This was THE saddest elimination round on the history of Idol.
One more thing, what was up with that old, long haired, shirtless dude strangely wiggling around on the stage?! Disgusting! I don’t care if you’re Iggy Pop, that was just wrong!!!! It left Jennifer red-faced…
