The First Guy to Leave Idol Is…

I must be regaining some of my prophetic sense – I got two thirds of the bottom three right.  Haley, Stefano, and Paul were in the bottom three.  After Rihanna’s performance I had hoped they would just vote her off, but despite being a relative newcomer to the bottom threePaul took the fall.

While this was a surprising turn of events given Paul’s popularity, it wasn’t quite as shocking as the exit of Pia last week.  I always enjoyed watching Paul perform but I never felt like he had the vocal chops to be the next American Idol.  With his positive demeanor and stage energy he will hopefully find a place in, at least, the indie rock scene.  His vocal style would be great for that style.  However, if music doesn’t work out, I think Crest should scoop Paul up to be a spokesman.  Those teeth are so white man!


Interestingly, tonight was the first time a guy has exited the show under the iron rule of America’s vote.  I am surprised that it wasn’t Stefano, but I think Paul’s voice is unique enough that he will find a place in this industry.  Best of luck young man!

I think Paul should have not got voted off. I think it should have been Thia Megia.

Paul’s voice was not the best or the strongest, but as an entertainer, he was much better than Jacob which I hope will be the next one to go. Casey is the most talented by far but I like Scotty. They are the best I have seen on the show and you guys need to vote to keep the girls on – they can hold their own and both are very good.

I prefer Haley over Lauren, personally, but they both deserve to be there.

A lot of the Idols who have done well haven’t been entertainers when they were on the show, especially Carrie Underwood. I think Jacob has shown the ability to entertain on some of the Thursday night broadcasts, but usually his Wednesday night performances are pretty dull in that respect.
