I think the show is rigged cuz malya is one of the best ones on the show by far. The only one she can compete to is calob. In whitch I do think he will win.

Malaya is clearly one of the best singers, since she made the top eight! But the Chaka Khan performance was not good. Screetchy and nasally. Plus her movements on stage are weird and jerky. She was not the best, not by a long shot. Still, CJ is way worse.

That’s just how her tone is. A little rasp and Nasality Is needed to hit those higher louder pitches without strain. Tones differ from person to person and from song to song. Her long and winding rode peformance she was able to access clearly tones easier cuz of the open mouth shaped sounds like ‘rOOOOad.”

I predicted her to go. Why? Because she had the worst performance! She screeched most of the song. You have to SING a song not YELL a song. She’s young though, she’ll get better. Stop playing the race card also. A black girl won last year and she was a hell of a lot better than Malaya Watson.

Sure she can, but that’s a terrible argument.

There’s a difference between yelling and belting. she’s a belter not a yeller. If she was yelling her voice would have been done for a long time ago.

It’s time to change the name of the contest to American White Idol.

Look there, all great black singers who won American Idol. All far better than Malaya. You need to face reality Noel, Malaya just wasn’t that good. It’s not rigged, she just wasn’t very good. Now I do think she’s better than the kid they saved last week. I would have voted him off a long time ago. But there are 4 left who are better artists than Malaya. That’s just facts. It has nothing to do with color. We are all just people Noel, you need to stop handicapping yourself and others like that. It’s kind of pathetic.

Why are two blacks in the bottom two and all whites were saved? I’m not playing the race card but was not that too obvious? Coincidence? Nah.

No, why would that be called the race card?

I am sure Candice Glover, Ruben Studdard, Fantasia and Jordan Sparks must agree is was rigged.

Jake is right, Noel. You should stop seeing people as their race and just see them as people. That’s the only way humanity can ever move past racism! The bottom two happened to both have darker skin that the others, but they got voted into the bottom two because their performances were not as good as the other perfomances. That is all. So, YES–cooincidence!

a shame she was told she was in last place. Something is very wrong. I am outraged. Her Chaka Khan performance alone could have won her the whole show. She was and IS clearly the best voice there. All 3 judges and even Randy seemed dazed and amazed that she was in bottom two but never expected it would result in her exit from show tonight. A real shame… somethings not right I smell a RAT. Gotta be a better way to put the best vocals in the final shows. I am done NO MORE AI for me . It is a sure failure for me. rework this reworked show… rewind and save her.

American Idol has long been reported to be rigged. How many minorities won compared to the whites? And not even one Asian or Filipino-American ever won the highest of which was second by Jessica Sanchez who clearly was the winner.

Jessica Sanchez was a better pure singer, but not a better performer. That’s why she lost. Stop playing the race card you idiot.

How many minorities tried out comparatively? I don’t know the answer to my own question, Noel, but your observation doesn’t mean anything by itself.
