The Idol Pad has revealed the Top 10+1 (everybody knew the judges would use their one
save now). We should learn tomorrow night which of the 11 listed the producers told
judges to save. I doubt it matters much since the one saved probably has less than a
snowball's chances in hell of making it to Top 5.
It's so weird that the finale is in two weeks when they just selected
the top 10... er, 11. This season was going surprisingly well
considering the social isolation protocol. Idol and ABC did a
wonderful job of handling it. And now they are going to go from a top
11 to the winner in two weeks? It's not enough time to hear everybody
sing in different situations and genres. Oh, well,
I didn't have a standout favorite this season although I was
disappointed that the OTHER Julia (with the afro) didn't make it
I voted for four of them with the AI app:
1. Julia Gargano was outstanding with her take on "New York State Of
2. Just Sam. She is just so darn likeable, no phoniness at all about
her. And the girl can SANG!
3. Dillon James. I shouldn't like him because I know he's a ringer
who's won international model/songwriting competitions and has starred
in a movie opposite Dolly Parton plus released a previous album. But
despite that I DO like him. His smile and personality is infections
and he has a goo voice, although I wasn't particularly fond of his
changing up McCartney's "Yesterday." Dillon's tattoos are
distracting. I can understand a small personal tattoo, but I'll never
understand why anyone would want to disfigure himself to that extent.
4. Francisco Martin wasn't at his best but I still voted for him
based on past performances; he has great potential.
I took the poll on MJ's blog; you can only choose one whom you thought
won the night. I picked Julia Garano and to my surprise she is far
and away #1 in the survey results.
Oh, by the way... I'm wondering how Makayla Phillips, the judges'
pick,managed to get cosmetic surgery during the quarantine. I guess
money can buy a lot of things. Her look completely changed; her
eyebrows are in a different place and her lips are so botoxed that
she looks like she's eating two hot dog sideways. Meow.
