WHOA! There were many (37!) first place winners in the Week 7 round! The list is so long, I’m posting them after the Jump.
Over all Leaders in the Pool:
Congrats and good luck tonight! Remember, first prize is an iTunes gift card!
My pick for this week: I’m banking on Carly Smithson getting the boot. She’s a talented singer, but has yet to have a knockout performance. Despite her talent, I don’t think she’s been able to connect the viewing audience. Syesha Mercado has been on the verge, but as the last African American contestant left standing and the only R&B singer, I think she’s going to squeak by a few more weeks. Brooke White has been faltering and could be B3, but I think the pimp spot, and the fact that she sang a beloved song, “You’ve Got a Friend” reasonably well this week, will keep her safe. Kristy Lee Cook had a good performance this week. She gets a reprieve. I don’t think she’ll even hit B3.
However, for you conspiracy theorists out there–somebody at Idol Forums heard Nigel give an interview on Sirius radio this morning, and this is what he said (paraphrased by the poster at IDF):
…Tonights results might surprise quite a few people and reminds people that its important that the singers do well each week and that someone can be riding high at the top of the pack and the next week be gone. He mentioned Constantine who had never been in the bottom 3 and had been a star with BR and then just like that he was eliminated ¦
Hm. I’m sticking with my gut. Carly Smithson it is…
