Skylar did have a lot of energy, but her two songs were screamers. She equates emotion with screaming and apparent anger. "You don't have to say you love me...." her body was hunched over and she was gesturing and screaming like she was in the middle of a fight. She did not look good so I was not really sorry or surprised that she left. Country music will welcome her in and if she can tone down her harshness, she could be another Pickler who went out 6th(?)
"You mustn't be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling"
I don't believe in holding someone's race against them, not even white guys. That being said, I don't believe Phillip should be the winner simply because I don't believe he is talented enough. But if the ones who vote the most are 12 year old little girls, then their guy or gal is going to win.
I voted for the first time the other night and while I probably called about 10 times (if that much), I'm simply not as motivated as a 12 year old girl and that is not the 12 year old girls fault but my own.
I also have my doubts that a big majority of tween girls are all that taken with Phillip. While he's a cutie pie, he is not your typical tween dream. A lot people of all ages like singer/ songwriter types and that seems to me to be what Phillip is.
I'm SO upset at Skylar's elimination. I haven't been this depressed by AI results since I was 14 and Clay Aiken lost.
