WKEF-TV ABC 22 News :: News - Good Morning - Idol Chatter: Sam Is Eliminated

Idol Chatter: Sam Is Eliminated

After catering to their fans by singing requested songs, the five remaining finalists weight to hear the verdict of America's vote.

The producers throw a twist into elimination night, giving the contestants the opportunity to decide whether to avoid eliminations this week- but have double elimination next week.
All five contestants get to turn in an anonymous vote, and it has to be unanimous for everyone to stay to perform again next week.
Two contestants (we don't know which ones) decided that they want someone to be eliminated this week- so someone is headed home.

We find out that Sam had the lowest number of votes, and his journey on American Idol stops at the Top 5.

Sam made it a lot further than anyone expected when the live shows started.  He got a second wind when the judges decided to use their one save of the season on him.  He continued on for a few extra weeks, making a little bit of progress in his stage presence and confidence.  But he certainly doesn't have that super star quality or super star voice that we expect from an American Idol winner.  He can thank the teen girls for getting him through to the Top 5.

Jessica Meuse did a little bit better on Wednesday night.  She started to show us some attitude and personality in her second song.  But she will really need to let loose if she is going to keep up with the front runners.  She has a really unique voice, and she will have to have the performance of her life next week if she wants to make it to the finale.  But American Idol is all about timing- and one great week could make a huge difference for her.


Caleb and Jena are certainly the ones to beat at this point...and it would seem that they should be the Top 2 in the finale.  It has been really fun to watch Jena evolve over the course of the competition, and America likes to see that progress.  On the complete opposite side, Caleb has been on point since the start, and his performances tend to be a little predictable.... but they are always great.Idol Chatter: Sam Is Eliminated
