American Idol Elimination Night: Stephanie is sent packing

by guest bloggers Becky Tennant and Bethany O’Neil

Ok by now everyone knows that Stephanie Edwards was sent home last night, not Sanjaya. (Who now has been dubbed “the worst contestant to ever make it to the top 10” and not just by us!)

We predicted it here, folks, and Stephanie’s forgettable performance on Tuesday just couldn’t pull in the votes needed for another shot at Idol stardom next week.

Don’t feel too bad for Stephanie though. She is pretty and has a good singing voice. She will probably be doing Broadway before too long, or putting together a contemporary R & B album. She’ll be fine.

We don’t believe for a minute that Chris Richardson was in the bottom two. It is just another ploy by the American Idol producers to get people riled up? ( Just like the crying girl in the audience.) They knew people would be talking about it the next day, and they were. We had everything from her being Sanjaya’s #1 fan (she needs counseling if this is true) to being a Make-a-Wish child. Come on, she was planted there!

Isn’t it incredible that people, no wait, pre-teen girls are still voting to keep Sanjaya Malakar on the show? Folks, he is now in the top 10. If you are one of those people who actually go and see the American Idol concerts in the summer, you’ll get to see him live and in person. Wow. Isn’t that great?

We’re thinking back to our adolescent days and who our music idols were. The New Kids on the Block quickly come to mind. We know they were a joke, too, but at least Jordan, Joey, Donnie, Danny, and Jonathan could dance. They had the “Right Stuff.”

Anyway, we’ve decided that one of the main reasons that Sanjaya is still on the show is because EVERYBODY keeps on talking about him. So, from here on out, we’re just pretending that he isn’t a contestant anymore. “Poof, he’s gone!” To us, he’s just some sort of joke that the producers put on each week to make us all laugh or shriek in terror.

We’ll be back next week.

Sanjaya stinks!

This has got to be rigged somehow. Aside from his overblown tennie bopper apeal, Sanjaya should have been voted off weeks ago. But then there is the rating game, and keeping him on and in the news brings in the viewers.

I am not sure if anything wound shock me at this point. I dont want to bash Sanjaya but as sweet as he is he should not be in the top 10. I wonder if he is oblivious to what the media is saying. As for Stepanie, she should still be there since she has a nice voice. Some how the voting has really gone down hill. Are we really voting for the best singer or the next best news story?
