American Idol 8 Finals: Round 1 Results (13 to 11)

I haven’t seen the show, but the results are all over the Internet, of course.

Surprised to see Jorge go, but I guess I overestimated the Latino tween vote. 🙂

Not surprised to see Jasmine go.  At all.  She probably didn’t belong here (Jesse did, and probably would have made it through this week).

Anoop can’t afford another week like this one. Although he may survive several vote-outs because of the Judge’s Save rule — a version of the rumored Bottom Three singoff rule, and a rule that will lead to more double-elimination shows as the season wears on… and possible a triple-elimination at some point if the judges use their saves on consecutive weeks. Oops.  I misunderstood the rule.  There will be just one save sometime between now and the Top 5 round.  That’s what I get for posting before watching the show.

And I’ve heard that Kanye West’s performance was… interesting.  Can’t wait to roll the DVR on that one.

I haven’t seen the theme announced for next week… I wouldn’t be surprised if it were disco, so they can screw Allison over… 🙂

Ah well… back to my radio stuff, and we’ll do it all again next week (only, one hopes, without Mark Thompson bringing the judges through the hole in the wall).
