Reaction: Karen Rodriguez Kicked Off Idol

Let’s start off with what was right – Haley Reinhart and Naima Adedapo being in the bottom two.  In a night of mostly subpar performances, they were two of the worst.  I was surprised though, to see Karen in the bottom three.  As a result, I was even more surprised to see her booted off the show.

It isn’t that I thought she had a chance of winning – outside of Pia none of the female contestants do – it’s more that, Karen simply wasn’t bad enough this week to go home.  The futuristic costume was odd, and the Spanish gimmick was getting a little old, but there were far worse performances last night than hers.  A lot of people, including me, thought she did better than in previous weeks.  However, I certainly didn’t vote for her, so I’m not going to complain about it!  Best of luck Karen!


Barring a catastrophic letdown I imagine we will see a few more weeks of girls getting the boot until the guys are in trouble.

All will be sent home but one is the name of the game on American Idol so it will be done each week (for the most part) until May when the last one is acknowledged as being the American Idol for 2011. So Karen’s being sent home is not as much of a problem as one by one seeing an ethnic have that inauspicious designation. I enjoyed her from day one and it may be a blessing in disguise. Hopefully she will go on to enjoy a career but prayerfully allow The Lord to direct her path. We shall see. PK

I definitely believe it should have been Naima. She has a nice voice but just can’t sing well enough to be a star.
Karen has a great voice and good range but I was tired of her putting Spanish in every song, it was getting old. I actually like Haley. She needs some blusie rock song and she could have rave reviews. Her vocal range is pretty amazing.

I agree with both of you about Karen – I think she was far from the best but she brought something unique to the show. If she had done something other than ballads it really would have helped her cause.
Haley really has a great voice and a different sound, I just think she needs to find her genre and own it. Her voice is too unique to be crammed into too many different genres, so if she finds the right sound look out.
