I've always wondered if the "bottom three" really is the bottom three. I don't question that the person sent home got the least votes, because it would be fraudulent if they fudged about that, but since the other two get saved, couldn't Idol just throw any two people in there for dramatic purposes? Sam seemed like a shoo-in from the beginning--cute kid who appeals to young girls, and has a great voice--so maybe they put him in there to shake things up? I don't know. I'm still not convinced that Adam was in the bottom two after his performance of "Feelin' Good." I mean--come on!
Was anyone else surprised that Sam was in the bottom 3?
I think Sam could still win this thing, even though he seems awkward and self-conscious. Performance skills are something that he could learn with experience. Malaya, on the other hand, seems to have all the confidence in the world and therefore can't be convinced to stop yelling at us. I really dislike her singing although the judges, even Harry, are going for it.
Anyone else get the impression that Harry was told to stop criticizing so much? That's too bad, because these kids could really use some constructive criticism. Someone must have decided that all the special little snowflakes deserve a trophy--which is weird, because no one ever tried to stop Simon from bleating out his cruel but useless insults in the past. Telling someone that their performance was "a complete and utter mess" really doesn't help them improve, does it? But pointing out exactly where they went astray could provide incentive for a better performance the following week.
