No Surprises in American Idol’s Second 12 Results

Why it takes American Idol an hour to give us three names, I’ll never understand. The results of the second 12 group were predictable and boring. The fact that I have correctly guessed the three survivors for two weeks in a row has little to do with my prediction abilities and more to do with the limited talent pool in Season 8.

Of course the hour had the standard filler. We learned that 25 million votes came in Wednesday night. Then we got the “how they got here” clip followed by the group number to “Closer” by Ne-Yo. And, of course, we got another look at the highlights from Wednesday before we even got to the results.

But the repeat of the Idol retrospective to “What a Wonderful World” was a new low in filler. Let’s just cut the results show back to half hour. Please, I’m begging you!

And if you thought the results themselves would pull you from the dullness of the fluff, you were wrong. No matter how Ryan tried to spin it, there just wasn’t any suspense in the announcement of the three contestants that will be moving through to the Final 12.

It was absolutely no suprise that Allison Iraheta, Kris Allen and Adam Lambert were the top picks. Their encore performances all showed why they were chosen.

The highlight of the evening was the return of Season 7 finalist Brooke White who sang her first single “Hold Up My Heart,” which she cowrote.

    I just stumbled across your blog in a Google search, and yeah, I usually download the episodes and then skip to the results. =D I actually didn’t know who was going to go on, but I had a feeling that the really bad ones (like that chick with the really short shorts…please, showing off your legs won’t get you further…) wouldn’t go on. I actually wanted Mishavonna to go on, her voice is really great…I would have rather she go on than Allison, but whatever.

    Sorry, now I’m just rambling. Thanks for the post! =D

    Gokey is definitely the favored to win. But I’m going to go out on a limb and say Michael Sarver (I can hope, can’t I?)
