I couldn't agree more, Misty. Every single contestant has had a bad performance; I think that it was a combination of factors that resulted in Connie leaving.Originally Posted by Misty8723
1) Apathetic fans: he had never been in the bottom 3, so they probably thought he was a sure deal.
2) The Switch from Rocker to Pop/Crooner, had a lot to do with it. Think of all the famous singers out there, that when they switch genres, they get Boo'd and Hiss'd from their previous fans. Queen Latefah (sp.) and Rod Stewart come to mind immediately. He hadn't yet built up a significant fan base before the Rockers dropped him.
3) The VFTW website. If, and it's a BIG "if", they did have something to do with it, it only takes ONE vote for someone to leave. Having 2 million votes + one vote= Staying power, for that week.
However, I am content to know that I'll be listening to Constantine in the future, and I'm going to be going to the Idol concert when it hits Chicago.
