Malaya Watson won’t be moving forward into the ‘American Idol’ Top 7, but that doesn’t mean that she’s lost all positivity. HollywoodLife.com caught up with Malaya and she told us EXCLUSIVELY why she can be ‘relieved’ about her elimination.
Nothing was more upsetting than watching Malaya Watson struggle to get through her swan song after her April 10 American Idol elimination — “I Am Changing” by Jennifer Hudson — but HollywoodLife.com spoke to Malaya EXCLUSIVELY and she told us that she is almost “relieved” that she will now be able to focus on school again — and she also told us how she managed to get through her heartbreaking final performance. Read on for our interview!
Malaya Watson was eliminated from ‘American Idol’ on the April 10 episode and not only was it the most heartbreaking thing to watch, but it was a total waste! The judges should have held their save for the more worthy and consistent Malaya than for the still great, but not as talented, Sam Woolf.
It’s no secret that I’m the Founder, President, and Treasurer of the Malaya Watson fan club, but it really was a waste that she got sent home last night. It’s kind of difficult to belabor the point since she’s gone — and it’s all America’s fault — and since there’s nothing we can do about it, but I’m gonna, anyway. Sam Woolf, 17, shouldn’t have been saved last week, and I knew that this would happen, that some other, more worthy, contestant would be sent home the following week in his place. Read on and and tell me if you agree! And send Malaya your good thoughts, because dang, she is just 16 and so, so talented.
On the April 10 ‘American Idol’ results show, America cut the contestants down to the Top 7, and with no judges’ save, it’s officially curtain call for one unlucky contestant — and we’re SUPER mad about who’s getting sent home!
Since Sam Woolf got the save last week, on the April 10 episode of American Idol, the vote is officially down to America’s choice — and we are NOT HAPPY about it because one of our absolute favorites got sent home. Read on to find out who won’t be moving forward into the Top 7, and tell us if you will join us in cheerfully burning down the earth.
After the April 9 performances on ‘American Idol’, HollywoodLife.com caught up with Malaya Watson — and the fan favorite revealed a little behind-the-scenes drama that made us kinda sad! She told us that she ‘irritate[s] everybody,’ which simply cannot be true. Read on for more of our interview with Malaya!
Malaya Watson seemed a little down after her performance on the April 9 episode of American Idol, which is crazy because normally she’s so “hype” (her words, famously), and she even told us that she “irritate[s] everybody!” How sad! No way can that be true. Read on for our full interview with Malaya for a glimpse at the behind-the-scenes dramarama that is Idol!
How great was Malaya Watson and Sam Woolf’s duet of ‘Lucky’ on the April 2 episode of ‘American Idol?’ HollywoodLife.com caught up with Malaya and Sam after the show and she told us that she ‘felt the evil eye’ from the girls in the studio audience during their adorable performance! Click to watch and to find out what else she had to say!
On the April 2 episode of American Idol, viewers got a surprise treat in the form of duets from our Top 8. They were all pretty great, but Malaya Watson and Sam Woolf‘s performance of “Lucky” was one of our faves. Not only were the vocals on point, but Malaya worked that stage like the diva she was, giving Sam flirty eyes and circling around him. Hilariously, Malaya told HollywoodLife.com after the show that she felt “the evil eye” that all of the girls in the studio audience were giving her. She’s the best. Read on for more on what both Sam and Malaya had to say about their charming duet, and click through to watch!
On the Feb. 27 results show on ‘American Idol,’ we learn that Americans cast 71 million votes and now one of the Top 13 — soon to be Top 12 — has to go home! Also, Randy Jackson displays a pretty confusing mentoring style.
The Feb. 26 performances were a bit of a debacle, so we weren’t too sure what to expect with this results show. For example, Malaya Watson has been a favorite so far but her performance last night was not up to her usual gold standard. If Malaya gets voted out, we’re going to need to have a talk with America. Also, we thought that Randy Jackson kind of threw Malaya — and the other Idol hopefuls who didn’t fare so well — under the bus! Rude. See below for who didn’t make it to the Top 12 and tell us if you agree with America’s choice!
