I wasn't surprised that Vanessa was the first to go. She has a nice voice but she doesn't suit the American Idol image of appealing to lots of people. She is very colorful and I can see her in a career in broadway. I think as each week goes by, it will be heartbreaking to see who goes as they are all so talented. This group of 12 is way better than the group of 10 from last year and I think the viewing public is voting based on good voice compared to looks, etc. Next weeks show will be songs from movies I think. That will be good.
