It could be argued that Ace Young hit the bottom 3 on AI tonight because he went first. In three of the last four seasons, the first person on the Top 12 show hit the bottom 3 that night, with only LaToya London in season 4 escaping the seal. Personally, I think Ace was bottom 3 because his performance was worth more of a 1 than an 11. He was out of tune, he danced like an O-Town reject, and has had three straight weeks now of horrible to meh performances. Now if only America can use the judgment they used on Ace to get that dimwit Kellie Calamari out of the competition, all will be good in the world.
Lisa in the bottom 3 does not surprise me so much because she hasn't shown the voting audience who she is. I know nothing about her except that she can play a little bit of Jimi Hendrix and that she's been a stage brat for years. And her mom's gorgeous. That's about it. If that's all you let people know about you, there's no connectivity with the audience, and that will get you nowhere. I know nothing about Melissa either, although her most compelling story is that, like Kellie Calamari, her folks have been in and out of jail for years. Funny how that story hasn't been shoved in our faces, huh?
I was disappointed that we were denied a Stevie Wonder group medley with pointy poses but was thrilled to hear one of my favorite songs in the world, "All I Want", sung wonderfully by Chris on the pimpmercial. And then Bucky and Chicken Little piped in and just ruined the moment.
