Well damn! I certainly didn’t think Big Mike would get the least votes from the viewing public. Although he got “voted off”, the judges stepped in (and rightfully so) to save him for another week. I guess we’ll see if he can do better and gather a few more fans. I don’t remember precisely but I think that in the last few years whoever was saved by the judges actually went on a bit of a tear and remained around for a bit.
Overall I feel like the competitors are doing better with stage presence and performance. There really wasn’t anyone that was TOO horrible. I personally would like to see Aaron go, he just irks me. Unfortunately I think he’s getting all those fanatical 17-year old and younger votes…the ones that sit there and redial the number for an hour….I think he may be around for a while. So once again..here is your American Idol Top 9.
