If you have men who will exclude any of God's creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity you will have men who will deal likewise with their fellow men. - St. Francis of Assisi
The whole thing last week with Jessica being on the bottom and it being such a surprise was absolute crap, imho. TMZ had leaked it earlier in the day, everyone knew who the person in the bottom was. It was no shock to anyone, they only pretended it was, and showed just how bad they all are at acting.
I hope Jessica goes home this week. She will not win if she stays. She has a great voice, but she is so stiff and visibly uncomfortable on stage and with the other contestants. She needs a few years of experience and growing up to be able to handle the business and attention.
And I hope the judges soon realize that this isn't about the best singer, it's about the favorite total package, which Jessica is not. It's a popularity contest, anything that allows everyone to vote is, and they used to know that. The judges used to say exactly that in previous years. I prefer Simon's snarkiness and Paula's crazy to what we have now. And Randy, he rarely has an opinion of his own, he just goes along with what everyone else does, which is why he seems to have completely forgotten what he himself used to say (when Simon and Paula said it as well), about this being a popularity contest and not about only having the best voice.
Well said Starryelf. I agree 100%!

Hello I am new here. I can't believe that Jessica Sanchez was actually voted off of that show. She is the best talent there. Hopefully she makes it this week.
Actually she was bottom one as she had to "sing for her life." It will be interesting to view her song choice and the lingering miasma from last Thursday.

I also would just like to say RIP Dick Clark. He was so much a part of my life growing up.
