Thursday night marks the second results night show for “American Idol.”
Two weeks in, and in all honesty I wish we could wipe the slate almost completely clean and start over. Since that is not possible, here are my picks for who I think will be heading home.
She’s utterly adorable, but if there is any justice in this world Haeley Vaughn will be sent packing. I really wish the judges had given her another year or two before allowing her into the Top 24. She just wasn’t ready.
Lacey Brown needs to kick rocks too, but my prediction is that Didi Benami will be sent home. Her version of “Lean on Me” was made even worse, given all the promise she showed early on.
For the guys, I desperately want to say Tim Urban, but I am starting to suspect that he is this season’s Sanjaya. Instead I think Jermaine Sellers might have to pay the price for sassin' the judges and putting them on the spot in terms of picking “the right song” for him.
Likewise, I believe Todrick Hall will fall prey to the judges' confusing instructions to "make a song your own" and "be original, but wait, not that original!"
Season eight third place finisher Danny Gokey will also be performing during the results show.
In other “Idol” news, the show’s announced social networking experiment appears to be over. The individual contestant Facebook, Twitter and MySpace accounts have now all been consolidated into one. Methinks it may have something to do with the uneven numbers between some of the more popular “Idol” wannabes versus the ones who were, well, not so much.
