    He sang a true soul number this week and got booted off. Obviously the public prefers the gimmick of his 2 earlier Beatles performances.

    I still would have rather seen Chikezie stay before Ramiele.

    Re: Chikezie Eze - Season 7

    I thought Chikezie had done well enough the last 3 weeks that he could survive doing a slow ballad for a change. So said that wasn't the case.

    I think going early in the show (the #2 spot may actually be worse than the #1 spot) was a factor but Simon and Randy helped sour the audience on his performance too. Especially Simon. Chikie's reaction to Simon didn't help either, I think. Not so much that he "talked back." What he said about singing for "them" was fine. But Chikezie's sunny personality and energy are a lot of his appeal, and when he looks hurt, scared, or even a bit angry he loses that kind of charisma. I wish he could have laughed when he responded to Simon instead of coming off as defensive.

    That said, Chikezie wasn't "voted off." He just didn't get as many votes as Ramiele, Kristy, Syesha, and Jason -- most of whom probably should have gone home before him, based on actual performances to date. But Kristy has the country and flag-waving vote. Ramiele has the Filipina vote. Syesha gets a lot of the r/b and soul vote. Jason gets the hippie vote. And all 4 of those others get the "cute young things" votes, from teenagers and probably from "grandma/grandpa" types too. Chikezie looks and dresses older than he is. That doesn't help on Idol.

    Also, Kristy and Ramiele had been in the bottom 3 before, which energizes their fan bases. I kind of wish Chikie had been in the bottom 3 last week. He might have survived longer.

    I hope he can get some kind of record deal. If he recorded the kind of stuff he did in the last 3 weeks before this one, I'd buy the album.

    Ramiele hasn't been in the bottom 3 but should have been at least twice.

    Chikieze accepted being off very well, I think he knew it was coming. Being on the tour helps. Last week he was tense.

    Too bad he's gone. I think he was much more entertaining than for example Ramiele, Syesha or Kristy.

    Love Chickezie. He went far too soon on his season.
