After being harshly criticized by Simon Cowell after his performance on Tuesday night, many people were expecting that Anoop Desai would be making his exit from the American Idol Top 13 last night. It didn’t happen though and for good reason…he holds the hearts of the young viewers and they voted!
Although viewers didn’t see it, half of the handmade signs in the audience were for frontrunner Adam Lambert and the other half were for Anoop Desai. Not who you were expecting right? There was very little signage support for either Danny Gokey or Lil Rounds who seem to be the judges favorites this season so far.
Anoop Desai will also have a huge following within the Indian culture. Although Anoop Desai is American born, it is very difficult not to fall in love with his immigrant parents who stated that their son is living the American Dream! Immigrants everywhere will support the underdog, especially since he represents Freedom.
There is one other reason that Anoop Desai will be around for a long time on American Idol this season…He has the cuteness factor. Even if he is off key once in awhile, cuteness seems to go along way with many voters.
