WKEF-TV ABC 22 News :: News - Good Morning - Idol Chatter: Dexter Sent Home

Idol Chatter: Dexter Sent Home

A bit of a surprise elimination last night.

Jessica Muese and Dexter are the bottom two.

Jessica did not get good reviews from the judges on Wednesday.  America keeps waiting for her to have a standout night and take her performances to the next level.  Once again, this week she looks stiff and uncomfortable on stage.  She has such a unique voice and look.  She looks like she should be fearless on stage-and is actually the complete opposite.  Her inability to let go on stage doesn't match the her voice-it makes it hard to watch her perform.  She looks scared and uncomfortable.

Dexter actually got fairly decent feedback from the judges- but still continues to do nothing extraordinary with his songs.  Consistently nice performances-but nothing that would make him worthy of being the American Idol.

A little shocking that Dexter is headed home....So much for the country vote that usually keeps country contestants going through to the finale, and often winning the whole thing.



Destined to be in the bottom two in the next few weeks....

Sam Woolf has certainly captivated the teenage girl audience-but probably no one else.  He also continues to stick with the mellow coffee house songs, never really changing them or doing anything extravagant vocally.

CJ keeps trying to pull at our heart strings with his song  choices.  He tries to make them emotional, but he can't seem to pull the emotion from deep inside--it seems to be done more with his facial expressions.  Artistically, something his missing, and he doesn't seem to be able to make the deep connection with the songs he is singing.  (And pitch still continues to haunt him)
