    That's just not true, or at the very least its only been true on one occasion--this past week. She'd been in the bottom 3 week after week before that: ergo people, overall at least, were NOT voting for her.

    Why did that change? Not because people are really more into her. More likely because:
    -week after week of not seeing her go when she deserved to convinced a certain percentage of people that they must be missing some kind of point with her--that she must be cool and they simply hadn't seen it yet
    -people got distracted by other bad peformances or got focused on other really GOOD performances (remember, you vote FOR people, not against them). In other words, it might be a statistical fluke. The SAME number of people as every other week, a hardcore fan base, could have voted for her this week, and it might have been relatively better, percentagewise, because some of the others could have had surprise drop-offs in their own voting and a few others surprise add-ons.
    -or this could be a V.F.T.W. type situation--that site we dare not mention who urged people to vote for stinkers on AI. I have no reason to believe its them per se, and no real desire to look, but that doesn't rule out a general feeling that people are starting to vote for her just as a joke. But ONLY just recently, as I said, since she HAS been in the cellar until now. And in all of those weeks dwelling there, didn't get booted ONLY because of Supernova, not because of the public voters.

    Unless I'm completely mistaken, she has only been in the bottom three twice out of five weeks.

    Actually went back and checked:

    Week 1 B3
    Phil, Chris, Matt

    Week 2 B3
    Jill, Zayra, Chris

    Week 3 B3
    Jenny, Dana, Josh

    Week 4 B3
    Patrice, Zayra, Phil

    Week 5 B3
    Jill, Dana, Patrice

    The only reason she's around is because Newstead wants to marry her. ;-)

    Zayra mentioned that she wasn't given an earpiece, couldn't hear herself and hence the pitchiness and flat notes. Interesting !

    It's also a lame excuse. She's been pitchy and flat every week. If this is an ongoing problem she would have said something before now. And do we really think she'd be singled out to be the one contestant who didn't get an earpiece? If she didn't get it, then none of them did.

    Zayra may be used to singing with an earpiece and most professionals won't sing without one. It is a reasonable request, what's the big deal here ? Just give her the earpiece.

    Z is definitely gaining lots of fans fast. Good on her. She deserves to stick around longer.
