Another American Idol Shocker: Carly Smithson Eliminated!

by at . Comments

Tonight's American Idol results may not have been as shocking as the night Michael Johns was shown the door. But there's no way we imagined anyone not named Brooke White would be going home.

Instead - because viewers obviously felt sorry for White after she forgot the lyrics to "You Must Love Me" on Tuesday night - Carly Smithson was voted out.

Feeling Good

We've been Brooke backers all season long, but she deserved to be sent home this week. Smithson put on an inspired, lively rendition of "Jesus Christ Superstar" and, let's face it, Brooke choked under the pressure. It was time for her to go.

Weigh in now: Did Smithson deserve to be eliminated?

Unbelievable! Obviously the result of an audience made up of passive listeners and not active listeners. As a experienced and retired bass player for a symphony orchestra, jazz and rock bands I recognize talent. This girl lit up the stage every week. She sang with incredible enthusiam, emotion, and had a great attitude. Carly should have been in at least the top four. Two of the remaining contestants should have already gone home and they know it as well! Carly is one step away from becoming a superstar!

Of Course, Americans would be very disappointed to see a foreigner who sings better than any other of their beloved American contestants. She's by far the best singer that ever aplied for American Idol.

Oh my god. When I read this news. Suddenly, I was crying because her performance last night was absolutely great. She's my favourite. Because come on, this is a SINGING COMPETITION. ( Most of the people don't think so). But I'm sure Simon was surprised too. After all she was one of his favourites.

I agree that Carly had a better performance. Heck, she's the best singer, technically, but, I don't agree that she was the most charismatic star of the season. I think there's something very annoying about her hyper mannerisms, and while she was blessed with a gorgeous instrument, her own zeal and personality undermines her performances. While she sung well last night, she still missed the mark for me because I'm tired of her sass and ego. She acts like she's the greatest star, and truthfully, star quality is a recipe of ingredients. On every cruise ship and local bars throughout the world one can find exceptionally talented singers, but, stars are something which combine talent, and other factors. It was time for Carly to go away.

American Idol Quotes

Brooke White's tears come from the authentic, good soul that she is. Her heart was breaking because she was overwhelmed with the experience she had with the show and the gift that it brought.

I read some of this online this morning and just for the record, the rumors — they’re not true. She’s part of our family and we love her.
