Alexis Grace was the third contestant to be sent home from this season of American Idol. The question of the night was should the judges have saved her from elimination this week?
Its my personal opinion that the producers just made too many changes to the format this year. Some of them I like some of them I’m not so crazy about. In either case they made way too many for one season. That however is a topic for a whole other post. The one change that they made for the 2009 season which concerns us here is the new rule which allows the judges to save one contestant who got voted off. When it was announced that Alexis Grace was going home, this was the first time the judges seriously considered using this rule. I think they should have saved her.
OK, hear me out. I know that Alexis probably wasn’t going to win the whole thing but she really deserved to stay longer than Michael Sarver. The judges are only allowed to save some one before we get to the top 5. It is unlikely that anyone who wasn’t going to make to the top 5 would win anyway. So really its a question of who deserves to stay longer. Alexis Grace was a way better singer than Michael Sarver. I like the guy. I’ve been rooting for him but lets be honest he’s going home next week (and probably should have gone home this week). Alexis had a much better chance of making it deeper into the competition than Sarver ever did.
The other reasons I would have liked her to stay have less to do with their actual singing ability. The top ten now consists of only 3 women and 7 guys. I think its a little too early to be that lop sided. The main reason I think they should have saved her was because of the Idol tour. Only the top ten contestants get to go on the tour which means Sarver gets to go and Alexis doesn’t. Like I said while I like Sarver, Alexis Grace is far more entertaining and a better singer. Of the two I would rather go see a concert with her instead of him (Sorry Mike). Well and lets be honest, Alexis is way easier on the eyes than Sarver.
That’s just my two cents. It doesn’t matter now anyway. Congratulations to Sarver for making it another week. We’ll we see what happens next week.
