Tis' a sad day, my friends. Alexis Grace was the 11th ousted contestant from American Idol last night, allowing Michael Sarver a slot in the Top 10 Idol Tour. Sigh.
I admit I was not really feeling her "Jolene" performance, but, come on, what else did this girl have to do in order to advance? Her range is superior to the likes of Scott MacIntyre, but I guess America cares more about a sympathy vote perhaps than vocals. And let me just say that Kelly Clarkson soared to the #1 spot on the charts this week . . . proving that ultimately, what we do want is someone with talent. Weren't the judges just comparing Alexis to Kelly after the petite little white girl busted out a soulful rendition of "Never Loved a Man"? Hmmm. Come on America, let's get it right. While I certainly was never Ms. Grace's number one supporter, I certainly think she did not deserve to go home.
And don't make me even talk about Allison being in the bottom three. I am still crying under my covers, afraid to come out.
