I knew this was coming. I have taken a poll since Top 7 on who’s going to be eliminated next and the response for the past two weeks was “Elise Testone“.
I am a Jessica Sanchez supporter (isn’t that obvious already?!), and I think I’m a bit of an ageist I think. Elise Testone seem to be a bit too old for American Idol, don’t you think? I’m not saying that because I think she’s a great artist and has a great voice as well but AI is simply not for her. I mean, she’s 28-years old. I know that I shouldn’t be saying that but life sucks and it is what it is. I’ve been eliminated from some things in my life because of my age – it’s a fact of life.
She’s done well to be on the Top 6 and I’m sure that somewhere, somehow, she’ll get a record deal. She has already built a fan base and I’m sure those fans will carry her through.
With Jessica Sanchez on the show, I think Filipinos and Mexicans all over the world have joined forces to vote for her. I, alone voted 250 times last Wednesday night. And I intend to vote each week until the finale. Of the 10 million more votes this week than last season (totalling 58 million votes), 250 of those is mine because I never cast a vote on American Idol.
So folks, do you think she was the right choice for America to send home?
