Once upon a time for the last decade or so, Making the Top 10 meant making the American Idol tour. It should have stayed that way. If the show can afford, can’t be bothered to send the Top Ten on the road, then shut down the damn tour. Admit the show has fallen to a place where such things no longer are in play, and shut it down.
But no, the tour must go on and attempt not to lose money. And therefore tonight, at the Top Five, is the cut off. Which means the tour now will not have Joey, nor will it have…well, we’ll find out, but after last week’s outburst, the show would probably really like that answer to be Quentin, thereby torpedoing any chance of an interesting show. This is the last twitter save, so at least the good news is after four weeks of watching Rayvon in the bottom two, next week we’ll be guaran-damned-teed to watch him go home.
Speaking of torpedoing an interesting show, that seems to be what happened with the theme as well. Arena Anthems? So hair metal jams, Queen, Journey, right? Wrong. The song list for this week that hit the web a few hours prior is filled with…junk. Clearly the theme lead to song choices so broad they might as well have called it “Contestant’s Choice.”
