|TOP 9 Season 11, American Idol|
|Erika Van Pelt Sings for her life on Idol|
Once the TOP 12 or TOP 13 are announced, Idol can continue to have America vote and place three contestants with the lowest number of votes in the dreaded 'Bottom 3' each week. After sending one of the three to safety, let the judges then decide which of the bottom two with the lowest # of votes should be sent home. This would eliminate something like last week from happening with Heejun staying on for yet another dreadful performance this week, while someone much more talented like Erika gets sent packing. Don't think there would be any need for the infamous 'judges save' and a contestant 'singing for their life' to even be a topic of conversation until at least the TOP 5. That's my suggestion anyway, and yes.....it does take it out of America's hands to some extent, but would make for it more fair and equitable for all each week, and avoid advancing less talented contestants to yet another week on the show.
OK......that's all for now. More from Eddie Idol coming soon with grades and critique of the TOP 9 after they perform 'Songs of Their Idols' on a 2-hour show from 8-10 PM tonight on Fox....so stay tuned!
