Top 11 Highlights

By now you'd have noticed I didn't say anything about the results show for the top 13. So before highlighting points in the Top 11 week, let's just recap the results of the previous week.

You might recall I said Anoop was in grave danger of being eliminated. Fortunately, he was saved by the skin of his teeth. I should mention though, that it is quite possible that Anoop was actually in the real bottom 2. Based on past seasons, we have come to expect that the producers might play a little with the results, by maybe eliminating the bottom girl, even though she might not have been the lowest vote-getter overall. So I suspect that Jasmin got more votes than Anoop, but was the lowest ranked among the girls.

Anyway, I'm glad Anoop made it through, because as I said from before, he has great potential, and he was one of my favourites from the early rounds. And for those of you who saw this week's show, you'd have seen what I'm talking about. Anoop was one of the best this night. To be more precise, he was the 2nd best. The judges, even Simon, had nothing but good things to say about him.

The best of the night without doubt, was Matt Giraud! Again, from last week I expressed my feelings about this contestant. I spotted his potential from the start, and I believe he is the one that should go all the way. At least the judges are finally coming to realise this, as they intimated in much in their comments.

I suppose Megan Joy deserves special recognition. She didn't do so well last week, so it was refreshing to see her make a come-back. What is impressive is that she was actually sick with the flu leading up to her performance. I had no clue she was ill when she was singing.

Now the results show has already gone, so we know who went home. I think we all knew that Alexis would be in trouble. But I didn't really think she'd be the one to go. In fact, I preferred her this week to last week. I was thinking more along the lines of Michael Sarver. However, if we're going to be honest, the real worst for the night was....(drum roll)...none other than Adam Lambert! Yes folks, accept it. Sad to many of you no doubt, but true. Of course the judges didn't really recognise his performance as that bad, except for possibly Simon. Simon was in form this time when he said it was horrible, and rubbish.

On a lighter note, it was quite funny listening to Simon calling Lil Rounds, Little, as if that was her real name, and 'Lil' just the short form. LOL!

Well I'm not sure that we need say anything more about the other contestants. Except maybe the Gokey dude. He's alright. But this week belonged to Matt and Anoop. Way to go boys!
