Good Job, America! We Booted The Right Contestants Off 'American Idol' Last Night!

Although it sucks to see people’s dreams get crushed, don’t you agree with the rest of the country that we sent the right four people home?

There’s usually a ton of controversy about which contestants went home undeservedly, but this week I agree with the rest of America: the right four contestants were given the boot last night on American Idol. Let’s be honest: Haeley Vaughn, Michelle Delamor, John Park and Jermaine Sellers were definitely the weakest links and we had to say goodbye.

21-year-old John Park was the first guy to get cut, which wasn’t all that surprising, given that I had already forgotten he existed (his rendition of John Mayer’s gravity had my head defying gravity. Snooze-fest!). Up next to the chopping block was Jermaine “I don’t need votes, I have Jesus” Sellers, 26. If Jermaine’s Idol fate was any indication, God doesn’t subscribe to ATT.

It was more of a holly-bummer watching the girls say goodbye. Michelle Delamor, 22, didn’t get through to the next round and Kara said it was because the Miami, Fla. native was better in person than on the TV. All the contestants cried so much when 16-year-old Haeley Vaughn got the boot, I almost shed a tear too. Almost. I liked her, but her final performance of Miley Cyrus‘ ‘The Climb’ was more painful to my eardrums than it was to my heart.

All in all, the results show was cleansing, but not fun. As HollywoodLife.com editor Will Lee succinctly put it this morning, “Fox couldn’t get to Kitchen Nightmares fast enough.”

So true.

Momoftwo –

I like Andrew Garcia too but he really needs to improve on his song choices. He is losing steam FAST. I think if he doesn’t turn it around really soon he’s going to be eliminated. Too bad because he is really talented. It must be difficult to pick songs because most of them sure are having a hard time!

Jermaine totally needed to go! But even with these contestants gone I’m a little disappointed this year…

Until they get rid of many more contestants I don’t really feel like it’s much of a competition. Thank God for tivo, so I can give em’ the finger when they bore me – which is often. To the person that says Ellen seems coached…I kind of feel like she’s out of her element too. Not sure if she’s being coached, but she isn’t really seeming like the Ellen we all know and love. She IS better than the first show though. I couldn’t stand that they led the comments with her instead of Randy. At least they got them lined up correctly with Randy leading the comments!

The right people got the boot. They still have a bunch they can easily weed out in the next couple of weeks.

I agree. They needed to go and none too soon. My favorite Idol is Crystal!

I totally agree, Kirstin. These were by far the four worst, regardless of how endearing they are. Hopefully America keeps getting it right, so that we don’t end up with another Taylor Hicks!

I think America got it almost right, I would have liked Michelle to stick around a little longer. And I am a huge Ellen fan but I feel like she is being coached about what to say and I just want her to be Ellen…. Not loving this season like I have in the past. I am looking forward to the make overs!! Some of my favorites REALLY need it.
