Why would Simon do that to Matt when he voted to save him?

Warning to west coast TiVo-ers. The episode ran WAY over tonight. I have no idea who got kicked off, despite setting mine to tape five minutes over.

Whew! Narrowly dodged a bullet with this one! I'm guessing his fans will not let Adam be in the bottom two again.

His fans shouldn't have let him be there to begin with, if he has enough. I don't recall ever seeing the so-called fan favorite ever end up bottom two so soon before the finale. If it weren't for the judges using their save a couple of weeks ago, maybe Matt isn't there to buffer Adam this time.

He's too Broadway for my taste. I can't imagine hearing him on Top 40 radio.

IIRC, Ruben was in the bottom two with Trenyce when there were only five contestants left and he went on to win.

OTOH, Ryan never said that Adam was in the bottom two with Matt. He said that Kris, Adam and Matt were the bottom three and sent Kris back to safety (without saying which placement he had, which means he could very well have been the one with the second lowest votes.) We will never know.

Even on Dancing With the Stars this week, Melissa and Tony were left standing with Chuck and Julianne, but Tom Bergeron said that Melissa and Tony were NOT necessarily in the bottom two.

Idol has done that before. And certainly, it creates much more drama to leave the predicted favorite standing there until the end.

IMO, Idol took an almost too predictable throw off in Matt, turned it around to create as much drama as possible by having Adam next to him at the end, plus they also opened up their competition to create interest, by basically stating that Adam was no longer a sure thing as everyone has been predicting almost from day one.

Funny, how they took a 16, now 17 year old girl's innocent humble remark "Anyone of us can win" and ran with it on Wednesday night as the theme for the entire show. It's all about the rating and the $$$ with Idol, always was.

BTW, I am a big Allison fan and was glad to see her out of the bottom three for a change. Now if Simon can only stop hating on her in order to keep his Danny/Adam finale intact, this contest may truly go any which way, but I doubt it.

Before Allison leaves (and I hope she's in the Top Two) I want to hear her do a Janis Joplin song.
Predictable? Maybe. But would be so amazing.

Bit of a shocker with Adam in the bottom two but I get the feeling that Adam is a judge's fave because of his technical ability and showmanship, but that America can't distinguish that technical ability as well (and therefore don't care) and think his showmanship is a little over the top. I'm not sure he's going to win anymore.

As much as I liked Matt, he deserved to go. I don't care what Simon says, he was horrible last night.

I'm the opposite of you, wilson.

I dug Matt last night and he earned my respect. The boy can blow. I didn't think he was as good as he is, IMHO. I hated to see him go.

As long as Kris don't win it, I'm cool with it.

I just think all the little girls are voting for him.

Ryan didn't say anything about Adam getting 2nd lowest votes or how many votes separated Adam from Matt. Felt like a setup to guarantee Adam goes strong the rest of the way.
