Before I dive in to talk about who got kicked off last night, I would like to take a second to confirm how much I CAN’T STAND Danny Gokey. His new single was actually pretty good, but his douchiness–oh his douchiness–can he not help himself? He spews douche juice all over the place.
I couldn’t believe that he put Ellen on the spot about being on her show–in the MIDDLE of a Live show! Ellen responded, “Yeah, the schedules just haven’t worked out.” I call B.S. on Ellen, she probably thinks he’s as big as a douche as everyone else.
And then, he goes on and starts spewing plugs all over the place. Um, Danny–you’re on the show to plug your new single, let Ryan do it for you, and have some humility. Danny Gokey reigns as king of the Idol douchebags.
Now that I got that off my chest, let’s talk about the elimination.

Before I start, I need to apologize about my predictions earlier this week. I don’t know how I missed Haeley Vaughn’s performance two nights ago…I went back and watched it, and YES I agree w/ Dani, and itchy–Lacey is NOT so bad (she does have a really interesting voice), but Haeley, on the other hand, was horrible. Aside from Haeley’s off-tune singing, I kind of liked her–she was a young ray of sunshine, but she needs A LOT of work, and maybe some braces, but her teeth are her charm…so who knows?!
Anyway, the eliminated contestants were:
I kind of think that Michelle was neck and neck with Paige, and Didi. I like Didi’s voice, but just don’t love her too much–but I do in a way at the same time…does that make sense? I don’t think she did as bad as the judges thought she did (but that’s up for discussion).
My thoughts on the eliminated contestants:
-Michelle: she’s a good corporate singer…she’ll be great on a cruise ship someday, or even Vegas, but she wasn’t right for this competition.
-Haeley: she can use AT LEAST 2 more years of training.
-John–he has an amazing voice, but just can’t connect. His exit performance was the most connected I’ve seen him.
-Jermaine…must I say? He’s good, but he should stick to wearing his onesies, and perhaps collaborating with some artists (not a bad route for him)…that is if God thinks so (*lightning bolt).
