American Idol Results – Four More Contestants Eliminated

March 02, 2007 02:28 AM by Joe Reality

Alaina_alexander_eliminatedAmerican Idol host Ryan Seacrest revealed that there were over
thirty-two million votes cast in the second round of the top twenty
four semi-finalists competition.  To kick off the show, the remaining
twenty semi-finalist did a group song of “Joy To The World.” 

Ryan Seacrest engaged in his usual wizardry of finding new ways to eliminate contestants.  First, Seacrest asked the boys to stand up one by one and told them if they were safe or not.  After getting Jared Cotter to come to center stage, Seacrest told him he was safe and sent him back to sit down, before revealing that Nick Pedro was eliminated.  Nick sang “You Give Me Fever” as his parting song.

Next, Seacrest asked the girls to stand up one by one and told them if they were safe or not.  After telling several contestants they were safe, Seacrest told Alaina Alexander that she would be leaving tonight.  Alaina attempted to sing “Not Ready To Make Nice,” but she choked up during the song and called the other girls over to join her own stage for hugs, before she finished the song.  Even Sundance Head had to wipe away tears. 

One of the highlights of the show was American Idol Season Five finalist Kellie Pickler who returned to perform her new single “I Wonder.”  Before her performance, Pickler told Seacrest that she had tried sushi for the first time and had been spending money on shoes. 

Seacrest once again asked the boys to stand up one by one and told them if they were safe or not.  Seacrest had Sanjaya Malakar and AJ Tabaldo join him on center stage before revealing that AJ Tabaldo was going home.  Sanjaya seemed to be in complete shock that he wasn’t going home.  AJ sang “Feeling Good” as his parting song.  Sundance got choked up again.

Finally, Seacrest asked the girls to stand up one by one and told them if they were safe or not.  Seacrest asked Antonella Barba, Leslie Hunt, and Jordin Sparks to join him on center stage, before revealing that Leslie Hunt was going home.  Leslie sang “Feeling Good” as her parting song.  On a side note, Reality TV Magazine accurately predicted that Leslie Hunt, Alaina Alexander, Nick Pedro, and AJ Tabaldo would be going home tonight.

    Antonella should’ve been eliminated for the racy photos. What’s wrong with AI? I hope she sings even more bad next week.

    AJ Tabaldo sang well the other night. Even all the judges agreed that he sang very well. Is America deaf?

    I’m outraged that AJ is gone and that horribly untalented, pathetic Sanjaya is still there, not to mention Brandon, who can’t sing and who used his dead grandmother for votes. AJ got no airtime. The show never gave him a chance.

    I’m done with this season.

    Antonella is safe again! At this point the reason is not only the help she’s getting from VFTW. She actually has a fanbase. And the more haters attack her, the more her fans will vote for her, as if to prove the haters wrong. On another note, Alaina deserved to go. Not only is she a weak singer,(much weaker than Antonella) but she sang “Not Ready to Make Nice” by the Dixie Chicks. This ensured minimal votes from the red state fans who make up the majority of viewers.

    I feel terrible for AJ – his song was excellent. I agree that he was burned by a lack of early air time when some of the other contestants built a fan base. I also personally liked Nick Pedro, but his demise is not such a shock. As for Antonella, she is the weakest female singer but she is beautiful and has a great sense of style. As for those who keep mentioning the photos, the sexually graphic photos are not her! I think she may very well make the top six, and while she will not have a singing career, she may build a career from this in acting or modeling.

    I am very shocked and saddened by the elimination of AJ! He is very good. Either Brandon or Sanjaya would be the more appropriate evictee this week. AJ proved his worth with his great exit song.

    I think Nick is a very good singer. His song choice did not showcase his vocal, and that hurt him. Sanjaya, I believe, should have definitely gone before A.J. I think Sanjaya, himself, belives it, as well. This week, I felt Alaina redeemed herself to the point of earning another chance. Haley’s song choice did not showcase her vocal, and perhaps for that reason she should have been the one to leave this week. Her situation is somewhat like Nick’s this week. Last week Haley showed some of her vocal talent, but it was well concealed this week. It’ll be interesting to see how far Antonella goes in the competition.

    Even though AJ Tabaldo had only 2 live performances, a glimpse of his hollywood performance and his state audition wasn’t even aired on tv, this guy already made an impact. Based from his introduction video last week and the dedication video last Tuesday, you’ll feel that AJ is a sweet, patient, humble and laid-back guy who just want to sing and reach for his dreams.

    But how can he beat Sanjaya Malakar and Brandon Rogers and the other guys who were all featured in the audition episodes and gained enough exposure already? He never had a chance to show his personality so people may remember him and vote for him.

    It’s not about song choice, i think his take on the Nina Simone song was miles better than Leslie Hunt’s version.

    AJ was eliminated because his audition video wasn’t aired on tv unlike the rest of the guys.

    I am guessing that Sanjaya is hoping he will go home soon. I noticed he was standing outside of the group when they went to say goodbye to AJ. I think he knows his time is limited, but the grandma vote won’t let him go. It is kind of sad really. He already knows he isn’t good enough. I think Antonella will be the same way next week. I am sure some of the girls won’t be happy that she is sticking around only because of the internet photos of her. I am sure they will start snubbing her pretty soon as well. I have a feeling that both will be looking to quite next week if they aren’t voted off.

  12. siliconealert Says:
    March 2nd, 2007 at 9:49 am

    I am amazed that Sanjaya survived, especially after the weak and creepy perfomance on Tuesday. Nothing personal against the kid, but he creeps me out – he reminds me of Michael Jackson who is the reigning King of Creep. Anyhoo – I think Antonella and Sanjay are next primarily because they are the weakest singers.

    Howza about that humongous new rack Pickler bought????? If she’s shooting for the next Dolly Parton, she’s on her way.

    Will someone please suggest an excellent civil lawyer to Frenchie from Season 2 who was ousted because of inappropriate topless photots she took in her youthful indescretion. If it was against the image of an American Idol then, it still is now. Frenchie went to the producers and disclosed her actions, and they felt in the best interest of the show she not continue, and she was definitely a forerunner. Why are they continuing to allow this no talented girl continue when other females who are far more talented have been eliminated already. If they are gonna overlook Antonella, they should have done the same for Frenchie! Wrong is wrong no matter what race you are, especially if you don’t have the talent to back it up.

  15. Ricky Says:
    March 2nd, 2007 at 10:48 am

    I was sorry to see AJ go, I really thought he sang well, and I was glad to see that Sanjaya felt that he should go, for he is correct. Please Sanjaya doesn’t have any talent like Michael Jackson, Michael may be wierd, but he has always been a musical wonder – so there is no comparison, Sanjaya wasn’t making hits at nine years old. I beg to differ, but I am an old person.

    Personally I think the only person who got eliminated on march 1st that should of was Alaina Alexander. I think if I had to choose 4 people to go for the girls I would choose Antonella Barba and Alaina Alexander. For the guys i would choose Sanjaya Malakar and the other guy wouldent of mattered. The Person who is still in that i would want out is Antonella Barba because she can not sing on pitch or anything.

    When Ryan was asking Kelly Pickler if she was spending money on anything else, do you think he was referring to her possible boob job?

    Number 1 – ANTONELLA has to go soon
    Number 2 – the INDIAN had to go
    last night (he even knew that)

    Fuk the Antonella Haters. You douchebags wish you were half as talented as her. Who gives a flying fuk about the pics she took. She took those and they were put out by a pissed off friend. She had no control over that.

  20. biff tannen Says:
    March 2nd, 2007 at 12:25 pm

    No they should not overlook Frenchie. You people are fuking stupid. Frenchie posed for those pics and got paid. Antonella did not. Big muthaphucking difference. Plus frenchie is ugly as hell.

    I am really sick over these eliminations; Nick, Leslie and AJ are three of the best singers on the show so it’s clear this contest has become nothing more than a silly popularity contest and not an actual talent competition. Unfortunately, the average AI viewer does not have the cultural sophistication to understand the nuances of jazz and will instead vote for some talentless hack screaming a played out Celine Dion song simply because they like the person’s looks or the singer represents some racial/ethnic group. The average AI viewer is a 10th grade drop out living in a trailer park so how could we expect any different? The three that should have went were Brandon, Sanjaya and Antonella. These 3 have no talent or originality AT ALL.

    March 2nd, 2007 at 1:04 pm

    It’s pathetic that Antonella is still around just because some idiots think it’s funny to mess with the show by purposely voting for the bad singers. Now three really talented people, AJ, Leslie, and Nick have had their dreams crushed. Proud of that idiots? Antonella is only good at doing one thing with her mouth and we all know what that is. PIG.

    “The average AI viewer is a 10th grade drop out living in a trailer park so how could we expect any different?”

    Hey fukwad, you must be pretty familiar with this group of people to say that all AI viewers are like this.

    “Antonella is only good at doing one thing with her mouth and we all know what that is. PIG”

    Maybe if your dumbass actually knew how to read, you would know those pics of antonella were not even her. They were a girl that looked like her. So you are wrong loser.

    I did not think Nick Pedro deserved to go last night. I knew he was going soon, but not last night. I am really shocked that Brandon was safe instead of Nick. Alaina. What can I say. I honestly did not like her. Leslie Hunt going home instead of Antonella was insane. How could anyone keep Antonella safe and not going home. I thought Leslie deserved to stay last night. Antonella is just a horrible singer compared to Leslie. Now what Happened? Even though I did not like Aj I am really shocked Aj left instead of Sanjaya Malakar. Sanjaya was my favorite at the begging, but I thought he sang horrible the night before. Well Sanjaya is going to go home this week if he does not step it up and do great. That’s all I have to say. AND I FEEL SO BAD FOR NICK HE DESERVED ANOTHER CHANCE TO STAY!

  25. Lindsey Says:
    March 2nd, 2007 at 2:43 pm

    What I don’t get is why Antonella got to stay,while Jordin was in the B2,and barley survived.What the heck is wrong with America? I thought Jordin did a LOT better than Antonella.

    I think Antonella is getting a lot of sympathy votes over the pics of her that were released. While I agree she is not the best singer, I dont agree with simon saying she was worse than last week. She was much better. But after butchering aerosmith, I have to question her decision to do a celine song.

    The four people that were eliminated last night, rightfully deserved to go home. I was kinda rooting for Nicolas, great voice, but he never stepped up to the plate. I feel that most of the guys are really weak in this competition and the girls are in it to win it! This show really has my undivided attention, it will be interesting to see who walks away with the title this year! I’ve just been informed that Pringles is having a video submission contest where you create, and upload your own original Jingle for Pringles! Have you heard of Jingles for Pringles? The Grand Prize winner will recieve 2 tickets to the American Idol finale performance! Create and post your video @ http://www.jinglesforpringles.com I know this info because I work with Pringles!

    Antonella is dragging the girls down man-she is the female version of Bob Taft, without the political corruption hanging around and hurting others like Ken Blackwell and Mike DeWine, who both lost their statewide races because of him.

    March 2nd, 2007 at 8:43 pm

    I think that if Sanjaya continues to give bad performances, he’ll go home despite how Dialidol says he’s gotten a big percentage of the votes so far. Your fanbase can only take you so far if you keep sucking…
    …unless you are Antonella, who is going to make top 10, I’m pretty sure of it. She’ll probably also take out a few other good contestants on the way there. At least spare Melinda Doolittle, please.
    I wonder how everyone would react if Sanjaya and Antonella made top 2?

  32. thisisgettingreallyunfairlystupid Says:
    March 2nd, 2007 at 8:46 pm

    …and why did A.J. and Leslie have to go? They were, respectively, great and unique/quirky in their own right. Weirdly enough, they both sang “Feeling Good”.

    Now no Idol contestant will ever perform it again…

  33. Jimmy Says:

    Nothing personal against Leslie or Alaina. Just want to vote for my favorite. That happens to be Antonella. Am I “Proud” of that? Not really. Honestly guys, we’re talking about a reality TV show here!

    For the people who don’t like Antonella,if we want her out of Idol than vote,vote,vote for your favorite,so he/she will get higher number of votes then you-know-who,and she’ll be out off the Top 12.So vote for the best singers,not the one with the nice smile and bad pictures!

    Antonella’s a whore-bag and should have been removed from the show. It was probably the producers who released the photos so they could get people up in a tizzy with scandal early in the competition……….it’s what they do.

    for me, alaina was the prettiest among the girls. but i accept that fact that she is one of the weakest girls in terms of singing talent. so does antonella. in fact, i thought these 2 girls were to be first eliminated. antonella looked more thinner this week than last, it seems to me that she is affected be the photos circulating the net. i think she will gone by next week. she does not deserve to be in the top 12 talentwise.

    Ok, people, let’s get real! I will be the first to admit that Antanella is a very pretty girl, but, SING? I think not! The girl couldn’t sing her way out of a wet paper bag! It’s a shame that she is still in it because she is pretty & the sad thing is, someone truly deserving will end up going home because they aren’t as pretty as her! Who the hell cares about the pics on the web! I just want her gone before one of the better singers get voted off due to their size or looks!

    One thing’s for sure, AJ shouldn’t go. Sanjaya is getting the votes cuz, well, he sorta stands out in the crowd and I’m not talking abt his singing skills. And Antonella? Phew … I don’t know man. The judges made it so CLEAR that she wasn’t good, is America deaf or what? I don’t care if those racy photos are her or not … but the judges say she isn’t good!

  40. Senator Gramm Says:

    Even though, I do not like anthonella because she is a horrible single… I have to admit that I am happy that who ever try to hurt her it blew up in their faces. They helped her with all those pictures. Who say there is a bad publicity….
    All publicity specially if it is free is great, and it is helping anthonella in Ameircan Idol that is very funny….. ha.ha.ha.ha.

    Leslie sucked, she is an ugly freak and sounded like a constipated duck. she was probabaly out because of her ugly look. Antonella is hot, but should be soon out. Sanjya is friggin gay. every normal person thinks that sanjya is a gaylord. Lakisha, melinda and blake lewis should get in the top three.
