American Idol Voting Results-Who Got Voted Off-Week 5
James is off on super secret special assignment tonight (or maybe he's just "in class", you never know), so I'll be taking care of the results recap this week. Note: if you're a first time visitor, be sure to bookmark us as we do recaps of both the performance (see here for this weeks) and results shows every week.
So, we're in. Ryan's looking all spiffy in a classy suit & tie. He promises America a "SHOCK". Hmm, I wonder if this is just another bit of hype alongside ABC's promises of the "most shocking Rose Ceremony EVER!" Unless Carrie bites the dust, I think it's all hype. Or, maybe the shock is that Paula looks surprisingly sober tonight. Now, does that mean she's on the wagon or off the wagon? I always get confused about that.
Ryan wants to know about Constantine's tongue move. Hmmm, frankly, I'm kinda curious about it now too. And, yes, I do hate myself, thank you for asking. More pointless chit chat ensues. I guess we know how they're going to take up an entire hour tonight. It's FILLER, baby! It's fillerific.
As part of the filler, we get to see the entire final 12 recording the Tsunami Tsingle. Hi, Jessica! I miss you! Hi Mikalah, you crazy little coconut! I think it's cute that the Idols think that "everyone" in America is going to buy their tsingle. Oh, sweeties.
Great. Ryan promises that the bottom three will each be singing their favorite song of the season. Why does this show want to punish its viewers? Hey America, you didn't like these guys enough to vote for them. So, we're going to make you watch them again!. Gee, thanks.
Watching the Idols perform the Tsunami Tsingle, it occurs to me that all the hatred I once had for Constantine has suddenly been transferred to Anwar. Maybe it's his hideous mustard-colored jacket. Maybe it's his no-sex-man persona. Maybe it's his boring performances. Whatever it is, I almost want him to go more than Scott tonight.
As yet another part of Fillerama 2005, we get a glimpse of the contestants' hectic "work" week. I'd feel sorry for them, but, well, nah, there's no way I can feel sorry for them. They're living the dream. On the way out to commercial, Ryan says we "won't believe who's in the bottom 3". Could it be Carrie? Damn, it'd be a shame if she went out on a week when she was actually interesting.
Ryan messes with Scott a little before letting him know he's in the bottom three. Sweet! God bless America. Scott tries to get me to like him again by singing "Against All Odds". It ain't gonna work, punkass. Go back to your Shaker Heights 'hood.
Carrie: is safe. Wow, does that mean my lovely Bo is in the bottom three? That's the only other conceivable "shocker".
Anwar: is safe. Yo, America, wtf?
Bo: is in the bottom three. Are you kidding me? How in the world did more people vote for Anwar than Bo? The only thing I can think of is that Bo & Constantine are basically going after the same demographic, much like Kelly & Tamyra and the season three divas did. Paula is still convinced he'll be in the final. And, I'm now convinced that Paula is indeed drunk. Bo tears it up with "Remedy", showing America how misguided it is.
Constantine: is safe. Hell, I'm so confident that I typed that before Ryan announced it.
Vonzell, Anthony & Nadia: Nadia thinks it's her. She uncrossed her legs to make it easier for her to leave the couch. Yep, and it's her. Nadia looks pissed. She also looks great. Her dress is fantastic. Her whole look is killer. Her problem is she has no established identity. As much as I don't want contestants to feel stuffed in their boxes, Nadia truly would have been better off as the "rocker chick". People get sick of all the ballads, you know?
And now the moment is at hand. Scott is safe. America, I hate you. It's down to Nadia and Bo. And it's Nadia. The crowd boos and acts all shocked, but it's been obvious for weeks that she was on her way out. I like Nadia, but she lost all of her passion. Hopefully, once she's away from the Idol glare, she'll be able to get it back.

|1) in one of the clips of their hectic schedule, carrie was wearing a "v is for vegetarian" shirt. i'm sure that's gonna go over like a toyota truck pullin' a gay pride float back in oklahoma. way to know your audience, hon. i predict this to be the beginning of carrie's downfall.
2) nadia, so irreverent - every week she's in the bottom 3, and every week the judges tell her she picked a bad song. her response? "i pick songs that are offbeat and that my fans like." EARTH TO NADIA - No one likes them if you're in bottom three almost every week. no record producer is going to invest in somone with that attitude, either - "nadia, no one is buying your album, and we're losing a lot of money on you." "so what, im singing what *i* like!" hey, i was a nadia fan at the beginning, too. i'm glad she's gone.

|Thanks for the update! Your site was the only one that I could find that had the results so quickly...obviously I couldn't see the actual dumping show, so I had to go online to get my fix...just a few minutes after the show ended!
Yea, Nadia gone!
Carrie...please, please, please, pick a genre....how about Country??!
Scott....get a life, get a stylist, get off this show (who are these people voting for him anyways...leftovers from Ruben days?)
Constantine...well, pretty good but Bo is way cuter!
Vonzell....she just gets cuter each week and would make a great idol!
Anwar...yea, I can see the "scary" factor, but he is just so very hot...but then I thought Michael Jackson was too in his pre-Thriller days.
Who else is on the show??? Guess it just doesn't matter. If Carrie would just get her real act together, she is definately my choice.
Great wrap up! Your site is for sure my pick for all my idol fixes from now on!

|I'm sorry, but I just can't see what anyone sees in Anthony. I don't like his choice of songs, I don't think he sings them well and he has a horrible image! I can't figure out why he is still here! |

|I think that both Federov and Anwar have the "non-threatening boy" thing going for them. Girls who are scared of the longhairs flock to them. |

|too bad anwar flocks to little boys |
|# April 13th, 2005 10:43 PM kris|
|well yes that is the downside to non-threatening boys. |

|Sorry to see Nadia go. Shock to see Bo in the bottom 3. Angry to see Scott got higher votes than Bo. Happy to see Carrie still on the way to the road of success. |

|I have to toss in the opinion that Constantine is also tossing off that "non-threatening" vibe. He may try to look like Mr. Danger, but in reality he's about as hard as Jordan Knight. Goes a little way in explaining his appeal, anyway...kind of like having the "turbo-look" Porsche without the actual turbo engine.
Rhine, I comfort myself with the possibility (nee...the probability) that the order in which the bottom 3 are whittled down is not necessarily by vote total. Ryan "Yes I Own A Suit...SEE?" Seacrest didn't say Scott had more votes than Bo. The only thing we know is they both had more votes than Nadia.

|Well, I love Bo....but I also liked the way he said it doesnt really matter if he wins. I always think he looks like he feels like an asshole in some of those silly numbers they have to do. But anyhow..I am going to vote I guess if thats what I have to do to keep Bo on. He is way better looking than Constantine and also a better singer. I hate Scott. |

|Great wrap-up! When hubbie heard Scott (we call him fatboy) was safe, I thought he was going to have a coronary! The guy has the facial expression of eternal constipation...Not someone I like watching. The agony of seeing him again is too much!
Figured Nadia would go since she sang a song very few had ever heard or remembered. Too bad....she's good and reminds me of Latoya London from AI-3. Intelligent and classy. Guess that is not what Americans want their idol to be even when talented.
Constantine is hot and knows how to work the camera. Carrie will survive. My prediction: It will come down to Constantine, Carrie, and the Vonz, maybe Bo. No matter what....fatboy must go!
