American Idol- Melissa Voted Off
Tonight's American Idol results show/fillerama featured a supremely boring performance by Stevie Wonder. While he was singing, I kept daydreaming about how Randy, Paula & Simon would critique him if he was a contestant. My guess is that it wouldn't be pretty.
On to the results: Ace is in the bottom three. Kevin is safe (hey, way to go Vote for the Worst. Joining Ace on center stage are Melissa and Lisa. Lisa is so distraught that she can't even look up. Poor little thing.
Ace is safe so it's down to the Lisa and Melissa. Mercifully, Ryan quickly tells Melissa she's gone. She takes it like a pro, and honestly, she's had to have known for the last week that she was probably going home after tonight.
I kind of liked Melissa. She was way better than Pickler last night. It seems to me that Kellie is benefitting from all of her early show pimpage. She has the luxury of surviving a crappy performance. Melissa, who had virtually no early airtime, had no such advantage. So it's so long Melissa and we're in for another week of Pickler's phoniness, Kevin covaising his way through the competition and Bucky's bouncing curls.

|I was sorry to see Melissa go. I was hoping she would make it to the top 10 so she could tour. Kevin has no business on the show let alone in the top 10. Lisa and Paris are splitting their voting block so one will go early and it looks like that will be Lisa. Here's hoping Kevin goes next week. |

|Kevin deserves to stay, if only to allow the judges to see the consequences of allowing him to reach the final 24. |

|The crowd reaction to the bottom three last night was interesting. They reacted to both Ace and Lisa, but only a few peeps came up when Melissa's name was announced. |
