Sorry this post is kinda late. I couldn’t face it had some other blog issues to deal with this afternoon.  The results of last night’s poll are not very surprising.

American has posted interview with the contestants. Meet the Finalists: Devin Velez, Curtis Finch, Jr., Paul Jolley, Charlie Askew and Elijah Liu.

Sudden Death Farewells: Chris Watson, JDA, Jimmy Smith, Kevin Harris, Johnny Keyser.

Here’s how the judges’ poll turned out.  Voting for Randy Jackson? I’ll admit it. I was that guy. Last night, he was the voice of reason.  But y’all loved you some Keith Urban and Mariah CareyNicki Minaj and her obsessions came in at the bottom of the poll.

Keith Urban – 34.34%
Mariah Carey – 32.58%
Randy Jackson – 17.63%
Nicki Minaj – 15.44%

Here’s how the fav contestant poll shook out:  The guys results weren’t quite as decisive as the girls (Kree Harrison came in first this week, with 36.45% of the vote).

1. Devin Velez and his “Splanglish” version of “Listen” came in first, with 24.51% of the vote.  He was more or less the best singer of the night, so it makes sense.

2. Despite his grating personality, Curtis Finch Jr., who also sang reasonably well, came in second with 17.9% of the vote. Hey, it’s all about the voice, right? Ha.

Coming in 4th? THE FABULOUS JDA (12.39%), with the quirky Charlie Askew right behind him in 5th (10.12%). Neither vocal performance was very good, but at least JDA and Charlie had a pulse, which is more than I can say for the remaining guys in the group.

Most robbed contestant finds Johnny Keyser (37.82%) and JDA (35.57%) running neck and neck for first place. If I had to choose, I’d pick JDA. He was pretty entertaining.
