Well that was disappointing. I just skimmed through the American Idol results show, and I was really disappointed to see that Erika was voted out over national joke Heejun. There are a lot of theories floating around out there about how this came to be, and my two cents is that Heejun’s safety is another example of the influence of Vote For The Worst, a website that selects who they think is the worst American Idol singer every week and encourages people to vote for them – naturally, the choice this week was Heejun.
In a word? Lame.
I hate that that website exists, and I hate that it can influence a show that I still have a minor interest in.
Other notes about the episode? I fast forwarded through most of it, but the group performance seemed OK (you know, for a group performance) and I was pleased to see Haley Reinhart again. I didn’t watch Lana Del Ray sing but I’m sure Haley was better.
OK, sound off with your thoughts!
