My Top 7 recap is up. Thanks for posting all your re-caps in the thread. I love reading them!
Due to last week’s shocking, SHOCKING boot of Michael Johns *sob*, there aren’t many winners in Top 8 pool.
Here are the Top 3 for this week:
And the Top 3 overall:
Congrats and good luck tonight! Remember, first prize is an iTunes gift card!
Don’t forget, Elliott Yamin will be performing on tonight’s results show. Mariah Carey will also be on hand to serenade her “lambs” with her new single “Touch My Body”.
The question for this week is, which girl will be eliminated tonight? Kristy Lee Cook, once again exceeded expectations with her performance of “Forever”. She’s got the country vote, and that vote is mighty. Syesha Mercado also had a pretty good performance and her own voting block. I think she’s safe for this week.
Elimination is between Brooke White and Carly Smithson. Both had lackluster performances. Brooke may have earned a little sympathy with her story about missing her sister’s wedding. I also think her apparent vulnerability may have garnered her some sympathy votes as well.
Carly, on the other hand, was #2 in the performance order–the death spot–and followed the favored David Archuleta. Simon is still panning her, and unfortunately, she is still not connecting with the audience.
If I were covering all my bases, I’d split my votes between Carly and Brooke. But since that’s not how I’ve been rolling lately, all my votes are going to Carly Smithson for elimination tonight.
