Indeed. I am predicting that she will either be the first person voted off, or votefortheworst.com has already made her their poster child. The best part about it all, when she walked into the room to tell everyone that she had made it, they cut to a shot of AI's favorite drama queen, Nathaniel Marshall (who is crazy himself), and he made this look that clearly said "Holy crap, the CRAZY chick made it through?!?!?!" Absolutely hilarious.
Oh Nathanial Marshall, after his surprise passed from Tatiana's win, he had to face off against Jackie Midkiff. Going into this I thought I liked Jackie better, but I didn't like his song choice and then they had to do a sad little back story on Nathanial and made me feel bad for him. He did do a better job singing. Nathanial ended up being the one going through to the top 36...if he wants votes he really needs to stop crying and hold it together.
I also liked Jackie better and so did Kara. As for Nathaniel, I make a fourth prediction now, this kid is not going far. I think his only votes will come from Danny Noriega. Now onto my (and Artie's) favorite contestant. Anne Marie Boscovich. To our delight, she is going to be competeing for a spot in the top 12. I am calling her this season's Brooke White. She is clearly the girl with the most raw talent, and the best voice. But I am not so sure she has the confidence to carry her beyond the top 5.
And the time had come that there were only two contestants remaining. The two tough guys, Michael Sarver and Matt Breitzke. Matt went first, and you could tell Simon wasn't thrilled with his performance/song choice. Michael did waaaay better in his singing. I like him better anyways. But look, another Idol surprise, both Michael and Matt made it.
Another surprise that Idol didn't fool me on. Mainly because I was keeping count as we went and knew we needed two more for the top 36, but also due to the preview that said "You won't believe what happens next!" Oh well, that obviously means they are both going through! Idol has become far too predictable lately. But as for the talent, Michael is clearly the better singer of the two. He also seems far more likable. I think Matt is just in this for the fame and money. Just a thought that was largely fueled by the segment of him basically saying "I just want the money." Interesting, eh?
Well, there you have it Idol fans, your top 36! Hope your favorites made it! Tune in next week, when the first group of 12 compete for your votes. Make sure to support your favorite contestant!
Don't let us down with your choices America! Vote well, vote often, and vote smart. Until then Chatterheads!
