WOW! WOW! WOW! I'm totally in shock at the results. I was almost a hundred percent sure that Haley would be going home. I was already mad happy when Lauren was the first to make the Top 3 (I thought it would be Scotty). And then Ryan goes on to say that two girls will be in the Final 3 and I was like... WHAT? Did I hear it correctly? I was just yelling for joy in front of the screen when Haley was declared safe! Like seriously, who'd have thought she'd make the Final 3? WHO'D HAVE THOUGHT?
I knew James would be going home, standing beside Scotty. But of course I had some inkling of hope that it'd be Scotty going home. Ah well. I was sad that James left, his story just made me cry. This guy has a lot of heart! But I wouldn't say that he doesn't deserve to go home. All 4 of them were strong contenders, and one of them had to go. It's just a pity that it had to be James. I did think that he had a shot at winning a few weeks before, but after last week's lacklustre performances and this week's not-too-impressive ones, I figured that he'd already peaked earlier on and would probably not make the Final 2. I guess America saw that as well.
Wow, I can't believe that we had 5 girls going home consecutively at the beginning of the finals, leaving us with 6 guys and 2 girls. And then there was Haley who was erratic with her performance and many of us thought she wouldn't stay for long. But here she is in the Final 3 with Lauren. I cannot believe it that after all the initial gender bias, we now have MORE GIRLS in the last lap! I'm AMAZED!
But I think, for sure that Haley's journey ends next week. Come on, she ain't beating Scotty in votes. And assuming Lauren's fans vote as hard... Haley's time is up. And I think a lot of viewers are pissed with her making the Final 3 in place of James. I think even the judges are pissed. I can't care less about that because I believe that Haley ABSOLUTELY deserves it. So what if she'd been in the bottom three for so many times before. We can't deny that she's been delivering with her performances. It's not like she got into the Top 3 without credit. I just hope America sees that and do not channel any sort of hatred against her.
Man I sure hope James and Haley's votes would all go to Lauren, leading her to win against Scotty. That would be the most beautiful ending to Idol ever.
But for now, I'm just rejoicing at the results! BEST EVER!!!!!!
