Time to send someone home from “American Idol” – and this time, the eliminee misses out on the tour.
The Bottom 3 comes down to Shannon Magrane, Erika Van Pelt and Elise Testone – because the voting demographics of this show have gotten completely ridiculous. In a bit of a shocker, Erika is the one who is safe and Shannon is the one possibly going home. (We love Erika, we’re just a little surprised.)
We thought Shannon was more popular of a contestant than that. She sings “One Sweet Day” for her sing-for-your-life song, which is maybe not her best choice from her songbook so far. We also doubt the judges use the save this early – look what happened last year when they didn’t have the save for Pia.
So Shannon is heading home. She didn’t exactly blow it out the box this week, but she was better than DeAndre or Heejun. Unfortunately, that’s not how this show goes anymore and it’s sad.
