Season 8 Show 3 Post-show Reaction

It was a gut-wrenching show of miserable singer after miserable singer. We had to endure Von’s terrible skunk hair (what is that style called, anyway), recaps of terrible performances, and the disappointment of the judges’ picks for the Wild Card show.

There was no doubt that Lil deserved to be in the Top 12 and I was pulling for Scott. It was very satisfying to see both of them chosen in rapid succession and making me 2 for 2 for the night. Then it got weird. I began to wonder if all of the attention on Jorge was an indication of the number of votes he received. I have nothing against the guy, but I though Ju’Not both had a better performance and a better chance of winning it all. Oh well, 2 for 3 isn’t bad.

Then it got downright frustrating with the choices for the next night. There was welder dude: Matt, cool Kai, soulful Jackie, and stunning Felicia. They all did great on their nights, didn’t make the Top 3 for those nights, and I was ticked that none of them were picked, yet the judges picked Ricky, Von, and TATIANA!!! Of the 8, why did 3 of them have to suck?

I sure hope America gets to vote.
