HOLY COW ! American Idol is full of surprises. What in the world happened on the show this evening? Just when you know the direction in which the show is headed, the producers, judges, Jimmy Lovine, or whoever calls the shots decide to point you entirely in the opposite direction.
For the last three weeks, Candice Glover has been American Idol’s newest little – LOL – sweetheart. (Sorry Candice, but little is not exactly the word that describes you best.) As far as the judges are concerned, and Jimmy, she can do no wrong. Then, Drake makes his dramatic appearance, causing Candice to almost wet her panties. Candice is the only one who matters. She is the center of attention. She is the winner, with flying colors. In fact, Angie Miller, Kree Harrison and Amber Holcomb are no longer in the competition. Like the neglected stepchildren, they might as well pack up and leave to save themselves the embarrassment. Ryan Seacrest announces that the top two and the bottom two will be announced after the station break. Everyone knows Candice will be in the top two. Hell, this is a no brainer.
Then, B A M ! You are just about to get hit in the back of the head with a five iron. Candice and Amber are in the bottom two, with one of them in danger of saying Good-Bye. Who ever expected this? All of a sudden, Candice is in danger. Couldn’t you just see her sweat. The girl is human after all, and not to mention, humbled. There are two possible reasons why this happened. First, the American public, who Ryan claims has the last word, is not quite as fascinated with the girl as Jimmy and the other experts. Of course, there is another possibility, which is the one I go with. This could be a set-up. This makes more sense. The show is desperate to increase their ratings. Heaven knows the feud between Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey did not help the situation. The direction in which the show has been heading the past three weeks has been like driving down a dead end street. In fact, they were on track for this to be their final season. Something had to be done to save their hides. Now, things are a little more interesting, because the great and wonderful Candice might – – LOSE!
Candice is not going to be the next American Idol. The reason is because she is not the best performer. Two of the other contestants are waiting patiently to overtake her. For the next American Idol, my money is on Angie.
