More on Michael Johns Elimination – Video and Some Stats That May Surprise You

Michael Johns on Today

Today did a piece this morning on Michael Johns elimination. Mandisa has a little cameo. The report states that Michael was considered a front runner from the beginning, which isn’t exactly true, but it is a good retrospective of Michael’s run and what possibly went wrong. They compare his ouster to Chris Daughtry’s sudden ejection at 4th place in Season 5. In the end, they give Michael’s elimination a positive spin–that like Chris, not winning Idol might work in his favor. Hey, Bucky Covington isn’t complaining!

I just posted my thoughts in last night’s recap.

And, check out Kirsten’s stats regarding performance order from today’s headlines thread comments section. 80% of this season’s bootees performed in the first half. A whopping 40% started first. Very interesting stuff.
