Were you shocked that Jessica received the fewest number of votes this week?
Any of ya'll that keep saying this is America's show, and that the judges should let the votes be what the be... and not save an obviously deserving contestant are apparently part of the ignorant idiotic masses that vote off superficial appeal and not the talent of the contestant. Jessica and Joshua are clearly, hands-down, the best singers on this show no questions asked. The other contestants all have their strengths as well, but they just aren't in the aforementioned's league. Get your head out of you asses America....
st singer and the judges treat her as though she is the worst, t necessarily the worst but it is a disgrace the way the judges act, have they ever heard of the word impartial. It is America's vote so unfortunately for her but she should have gone home. Especially because if it had been Hollie they would not have been able to get her out quick enough.
I think Sandra has hit the nail right on the head. Star struck young girls seem to be the ones doing most of the voting and appear to do so without regard to who has the most talent so, naturally, they vote over and over for their dream boy toy - just my opinion of course but I don't think I'm far off base.
There is something inherently wrong with the way AI voting is structured. Anybody is allowed to vote over and over so the number of votes is not a true reflection of how many fans voted for each contestant but rather how many times the most determined fans were able to push enough buttons in a two-hour period. Jessica and Joshua are far and above the two best talents on this year's competition. In my opinion, Phil, Colton and Holly aren't in the same class - they're good, but just not that good. My next favorite is Elise - she has a certain quality that just pushes my buttons just right.
I say change the voting so that fans can only vote once for their favorite. Incoming votes can only come once from a given telephone No. or IP address. I know, this can also be abused because one could vote once from their home phone, then again from their cell phone and then from their computer but it would at least cut down on the ridiculous number of times each person can now vote. it would also provide a truer reflection of the popularity of the show by providing a truer count of the number of viewers.
Finally, I would again allow the judges' votes to count towards the overall results - Say 60% based on America's votes and the remaining 40% based on the judges' votes.
The voting as it stands is a total sham and needs revamping from top to bottom. It's little wonder that the show's popularity has consistently decreased each of the last few years. It's become more of a popularity contest than a talent contest.
I cannot believe that Jessica was even in the bottom three, much less the one to be voted off. I was thrilled that the judges used their "save". Jessica is truly the most truly taented singer in the group. the guys are getting votes from all the star struck young girls who could care less (or even recognize) real talent.
This was supposed to be America's show and the judges need to play by the rules. I agree with Eva the judges should get a boot. Let America fans decide. Judges you had your time. This reminded me of the X-factor when they kept saving a contestant for three times when he was in the bottom three for three weeks.
jessica should at least be in the top5 or better.
That is what the judges always tell to the audience VOTE!!!!! your votes are important than the judges decision.
I really love Jessica's voice and Joshua too. Judges need to quit ragging on Hollie though. I think she would have more confidence and perform more if she felt 'some love' from the judges. She has a really good voice but is just a bit overwhelmed.
America got it wrong ? Really Randy don't think so dog Hollie gave the best performance of the night if not the best of the whole season and none of the judges gave her props and from the way of the vote it looks like everybody agrees . Next week we will know I did like Jessica but after the obvious favoritism it turned me off her. I hope next week everybody votes what they truly feel is the best if they do I believe Jessica and Joshua can share a cab home.
The American Idol judges should be the next to get the boot. I'm so glad they have no votes left to save, because it was obvious who would not be saved and who would, from their bias comments week after week.I personally do not agree with their favorites, and feel like their comments are more in line to effect the american voters than it is to actually help the contestants improve. All the contestants have exceptional qualities, ranges, and style. Everyone left in the contest has equal chances to move forward. I wish Jimmy would be the only person allowed to comment on the performances because he appears to be the only brutally honest and sincere critic.
