On Tuesday, the New York Daily News ran a story that said, according to a source inside the show, the producers of American Idol had already decided the top 4: Danny Gokey, Adam Lambert, Lil Rounds, and Alexis Grace. Uh, not so much. Reuters reports:
Fans of “American Idol” eliminated Alexis Grace from the show’s eighth season on Wednesday when they cast the fewest votes for the Memphis singer’s rendition of Dolly Parton’s “Jolene” during the show’s country music-themed week. Grace, 21, was sent packing after the show’s four judges declined to use their onetime per season vetos to save her from elimination at the end of the Grand Ole Opry week. “It was good,” said judge Simon Cowell after Grace reprised the song that got her the fewest fan votes among more than 31 million cast this week. “But it wasn’t good enough.” On Tuesday, the judges took issue with Grace’s choice of song, with the show’s newest judge, Kara DioGuardi, saying the singer had lost some of her “edge.”
This comes as a mild shock I guess because Alexis Grace was reportedly one of the judge’s favorites and seemed to have a lot of public support. However, Megan Joy (pictures below), a Top 10 finalist, is possibly the worst singer in American Idol history to make it this far. But she wasn’t even in the bottom two last night. How could this be? Well, I had my crack investigative team look into this and they discovered that Megan Joy is really, really pretty and has ridiculously big boobs. Alexis Grace does not. I don’t know if this is the exact reason Alexis Grace was voted off, but I’m not going to lie, my crack investigative team is really just my penis.
