The American Idol audience got it wrong tonight, sending home the talented Anwar Robinson over the bland Anthony Fedorov and the excruciating Scott Savol. Last night, Anwar recovered from a few off weeks, but it apparently wasn’t enough to renew America’s initial adoration for the middle school music teacher.
The top four of Vonzell, Constantine, Carrie, and Bo were no surprise, of course, and kudos to Bo for refusing to play the game of choosing the top group even after he knew that he himself was safe.
Well, our weekly guessing game does not seem to be turning out well. Of the six finalists who’ve left the show so far, I’ve predicted only one correctly. ZMethos has had 2 of the 6 right.
It is some consolation, however, that I did correctly predict the bottom 3 tonight, even though I thought it would be Anthony leaving, and not Anwar.
“AI” Season 4 Odds Update
I realize that I haven’t updated the odds for some time now, so it’s probably time to revisit the finalists.
Mikalah Gordon – Previous Odds: 40:1 – No Current Odds
Long gone by now, Mikalah was too obnoxious to hang around for long.
Nikko Smith – Previous Odds: 30:1 – No Current Odds
Nikko got a second chance at stardom, but that was the only chance he got.
Jessica Sierra – Previous Odds: 25:1 – No Current Odds
Jessica was a decent performer, but not strong enough for this season.
Nadia Turner – Previews Odds: 6:1 – No Current Odds
The only real travesty in the voting before tonight, Nadia started off strong by made some poor choices (mohawk, anyone?) along the way.
Anwar Robinson – Previous Odds: 15:2 – No Current Odds
While he didn’t really have a chance to win it, like I said above, Anwar deserved to last at least longer than Scott and Anthony.
Scott Savol – Previous Odds: 15:1 – Current Odds: 30:1
As inexplicable as it is that he’s still around, Scott can’t continue to last much longer. He just can’t.
Anthony Fedorov – Previous Odds: 20:1 – Current Odds: 20:1
The weakest singer of the remaining finalists, Anthony is living on borrowed time.
Vonzell Solomon – Previous Odds: 20:1 – Current Odds: 12:1
Without a doubt, Vonzell is the most improved of the finalists. She came in with very little screen time from the previous rounds, and she’s been a consistently solid performer. However, she’s definitely number 4 this year.
Bo Bice – Previous Odds: 3:1 – Current Odds: 9:2
Slipping a bit since his appearance in the bottom 3 last week, Bo came back strong tonight as his fans rallied for him. He could still win, but it will take truly amazing showings each and every week from here on in.
Carrie Underwood – Previous Odds: 12:1 – Current Odds: 3:1
Carrie is not particularly consistent, having faltered a few times with strange song choices and amazingly large hair, but she has the voice and she has the look. With no appearances to date in the bottom 3, it’s a good bet we’ll see her in the final 2 along with…
Constantine Maroulis – Previous Odds: 10:1 – Current Odds: 2:1
The true star this season has been Constantine. He started out strong, faltered, and then came back with a vengeance. Every time Bo ups his game, Constantine follows suit. A consummate performer, it’s quite easy to see Con as this season’s American Idol.
