American Idol Eliminations: TMTH

Man, this season has been tough on me. First Josiah Leming isn't picked for the top 24, and then my favorite contestant, Danny Noriega, narrowly misses making the top 12 tonight.

I know many people reading this blog--and, apparently, millions of people watching the show--didn't share my love for the fierce/foxy/fabulous Danny, with his Jessica Alba lips, perfect hair, sassy one-liners, trademark headsnaps, tendency to speak in text-ese, and profanity-laced YouTube videos. He was a polarizing, love-him-or-hate-him kind of contestant. And hey, I loved him.

Danny, if you're reading this, I'll miss you. And make sure to give Ramiele her glasses back before you leave.

Anyway, for the most part, I agree with America's votes. Ish. I do NOT agree with Chikizie staying over Danny (duh) or Amanda staying over Asia'h, but for better or worse, here's the top 12 as picked by the public (not to gloat, but I predicted 10 of them correctly):

Amanda Overmyer
Brooke White
Carly Smithson
Chikizie
David Archuleta
David Cook
David Hernandez
Jason Castro
Kristy Lee Cook
Michael Johns
Ramiele Malubay
Syesha Mercado

And for those keeping track at home...my new fave male finalist is David Cook.

Seacrest out.
