Results night. The two Davids went straight to the safe couch. No surprise there.
Next out were Brooke and Syesha. Surprise: It was Syesha who went to the danger stool. Funny, I was talking about it with my chiropractor today, and I said, “It could be Syesha who leaves after she had one of her best ever performances. It’s happened before.”
Next surprise: Carly went to the danger stool and Jason went to the safe couch.
I picked the bottom three last night and only got one right, Carly — and she isn’t the one I really expected to be there if there were only two seats.
Both of the bottom two sang their songs from last night. I still didn’t like Carly’s performance. Too much shouting, too little melody. And I still loved Syesha’s performance. (And while Syesha was singing, Carly was off to the side talking the whole time to Ryan. How rude!) I liked that they did this. I always think having the Idols sing after they’ve been voted off borders on cruel.
And it was Carly who went home. This young woman has a beautiful voice, and it’s too bad she never quite connected, personality-wise, with the audience. But who knows what success still awaits her? She definitely has the talent.
Best wishes, Carly!
