  1. I thought I posted this message last night but it is not here. I am SO upset that Jeremiah was not saved. He should have at least been in the top two. I am really sad that I won’t be seeing him again. I could care less who wins now. Not particularly interested in the remaining contestants.

  2. Yes. I was upset as well. Totally. This is why these shows are losing relevance. They are popularity contests. I think the singers understand this but still… They could have saved the best singer.


  3. I commented on other threads here as well but they are lost in cyber space. Must have been a glitch. Looks like all is fine now.

    My heart goes out to Jeremiah, they didn’t even save the best singer of the competition….. Why, Why Why…. They have done this since Season 4. After Carrie who was the best singer and the most marketable after Kelly, they continue to let the mediocre singers win…… At least Katharine, David A, Adam Lambert went on to become runner-up status for at least being great singers.. And sadly this show has never really had any superstars after Carrie….. IT would be nice to see them really market these young talents….. At least and I knew was a matter of time, Gabby Barrett got her record contract….. She by far was the best singer last year…… They need to do away with AI………

  5. Richard – right? What a travesty that he was eliminated. His voice is such a gem. Pure and passionate. Who wants to watch the show now? Not me. Thanks for stopping by.
