Whoa. The Lion King STOLE THE DAMN SHOW LAST NIGHT. Zoanette Johnson got the pimp spot and wailed her own very special version of “The Circle of Life” from The Lion King, be-wigged with a giant blond lion’s main and dressed in leopard print. She definitely got the “lions share” (sorry!) of attention from pundits and fans alike!
But she didn’t come first in our poll. That honor would go to fan favorite, Candice Glover who captured 26.82% of the vote with a soulful version of that old chestnut, “Natural Woman”.
Zoanette, however, was a fairly close second, with 17.88% of the vote. But you guys are split on Zoanette 48.47% of you were all HELL TO THE NO in our Zoanette yay or neigh poll. 47.58% were totally YAY ZOANETTE. Only 3.95% were indifferent to the singer. The fact that she can engender such strong feelings is why the producers her a pimping her through to the finals.
In third place? A contestant who didn’t even advance. It’s poor, scorned Jett Hermano with 13.21% of the vote. If there is a wild card, she’s got a great chance at making the cut, I think.
Jett ran neck in neck with Rachel Hale for most robbed of the eliminated contestants.
Your favorite judge this week? Keith Urban, with 42.93% of the vote. Mariah Carey is behind him with 36.43%, followed by Nicki Minaj at 18.66% and once again, Randy Jackson is last with only 1.98% of the vote. His rally from last week was short lived!
