What's Hot On TV Tonight – How Do You Choose Who Leaves


Well, it’s a good thing it’s not left up to just just one person to see who leaves American Idol tonight. I think it’s just to tough to choose. There wasn’t any real stinker of a performance last night, and additionally, even the judges seemed to be spread out over who they liked. I still think Adam is safe until at last final three, but I can see any of the other four going home tonight. If Allison Iraheta’s and Matt Giraud’s fans rallied, it could be someone else that thought their Idol was safe and didn’t vote. I’ll be sad posting a commentary on it tonight, but I won’t be surprised I don’t think, no matter what.
