‘American Idol’ — Zoanette Johnson’s Top 10 Spot Was A Joke

‘American Idol’ contestant Zoanette Johnson should not have been in the Top 10 girls this season, and it was never more apparent than her terrible performance on March 5. Here’s why she should be voted off the show right now.

Despite being one of the most memorable contestants of the season, Zoanette Johnson needs to be booted from American Idol ASAP. On Feb. 27, Zoanette secured her position as one of the Top 10 girls by singing Elton John’s “Circle Of Life.” On March 5, her horrible performance really made it clear the judges made a big mistake.

Zoanette has definitely provided an entertainment factor — making Keith Urban fall out of his chair and Nicki Minaj cry, but her rendition of Tina Turner‘s “What’s Love Got To Do With It” made it apparent that her top 10 spot was undeserved.

I was cringing as she sang — thinking that I’ve heard better at a karaoke bar. One YouTube commenter even said, “When she does vibrato, it sounds like there’s water in her throat and she just gargles it.”

Don’t get me wrong, I love her energy and enthusiasm and really enjoyed when she let loose on the drums during Hollywood week. She does have talent, but is she one of the most talented singers in the entire country? No.

Her Original Audition Didn’t Wow Me

Actually, when I go back and watch her audition to the National Anthem, I highly doubt she would have even made it through were it not for her “star” quality. She has moments of likeability but we have to remember that American Idol is about finding a great voice and a great singer, not just a star.

Former contestants Melinda Ademi, Juliana ChahayedRachel Hale and even guy contestant Bryant Tadeo deserved spots above Zoanette, in my opinion.

Watch her Top 10 performance below and tell us, HollywoodLifers, did you think she deserved to be in the Top 10 girls?

Juliana was unbelievable! When the judges let her go and sent zoanette through I just couldn’t believe it. I hope they have a wild card this year and bring her back. Truly a bad judgement call.

I can agree that she wouldn’t have been my pick to go throough, but Im not going to make ignorant comments and the one you made was a very ignorant comment to make about someone, with the last name Jimenez I’m quite sure it wasn’t derived here and how would you feel if they say shipped you back to where ever you came from. Ignorance is bliss and definitely with you.

And WHERE SHOULD They ship you back to? Back To Spain, Cuba or Mexico? It is utterly disgusting the nation that Christopher Columbus cursed to be whores and thieves. Making such a comment. You are not indigenious American and you should keep your views for when you are Back in Spain, Cuba or Mexico.

This also goes to the rest who have similar views to you, look at your origin before you post such comment, and post them in your country of origin and keep them there! Donot come to other countries of which is not your origins and contaminate the place with your vermin!
