Carly Smithson Expresses Shock Over Michael Johns Elimination

by at . Comments

The look on the face of Carly Smithson below says it all:

No Effin Way!!!!

That was the general reaction of all American Idol viewers last night, when it was announced that Michael Johns had somehow been eliminated.

As he sang his farewell song, the other finalists stood and clapped for their fallen Idol. Johns then moved from the stage to the platform behind the judges to be closer to the audience.

Earlier in the night, Simon Cowell had spoken for us all when he said: "I'm going to miss you. You're a very good singer and a very, very nice guy."

Will you miss Michael Johns on the show?

It was not fair because the phone lines to vote for Michael were always busy. If they are going to have national voting maybe they should have enough phone lines to actually vote. It would be interesting to see if the other two in the bottom had busy lines... I think they should have not sent him home but given him the chance to stay after Ryan said they didn't eliminate last year. Grrrrrr... thank God David Cook is still on.

What a stupid fluke. Everyone was surprised because Michael should NOT have been eliminated. And BTW... He was NOT voted off. You don't vote against people. Clearly, people thought he was safe and got lazy about voting. He was my favorite, and I've lost interest in the show since he's been gone. Fans of his should go to iTunes and search for his ORIGINAL music. Try "The Rising" which was his band. I downloaded "Cradle" and "So Alive" FANTASTIC!

Scooter - It was NOT a weak song choice. It was great.

I have never missed an American Idol show til now. I could care less about who wins. David A reminds me of Reuben: great singer but who is going to go watch them sing? not me. I'd never thought I witness another as big an injustice as Jennifer Hudson being booted off with that incredible voice of hers and now it Michael Johns. He should have won the whole thing. Him and David A in the final 2 with Michael Johns winning by a landslide. Well, all I can say is Michael bring it on cause I'm buying and I'll come see you in concert. This is getting really old American Idol. Oh P.S. if you didn't vote off anyone on American Idol gives back last year what suddenly makes doing it this year an option. Would you have if it was lets say David A or David Cook??? Just wondering

I totally agree!! MJ was supposed to win...he had it all and he was my favorite by like 50 times! Absolutely disgusting that he was voted off--i think America just thought there was no way he could be, and didn't worry about it. Stupid, stupid! And Ryan-- can anyone spell JEALOUS!!!??? what a lousy way of delivering the news..so pleased with himself. Now Jason and David A are my faves...but honestly, the life is out of the competition.

Michael is the whole package, it's shocking that we let him slip away. Like many AI seasons in the past we tend to vote for those we think will be voted off based on their current performance. We need to remember those who do a great job consistently need that vote as well!
Michael was one of my top picks for this season. The girls all gotta go in my opinion (Carly should be the last of the bunch though). Jason, and the two Davids all deserve to be in the top 3.

I am a 66yr old grandmom to 12 kids. I watched Ai just to watch MJ perform. he has talent, looks and he is the whole package. I will not be watching any AI anymore because the best performer is gone. As for MJ, I will purchase any cd he releases. MICHAEL, YOU ARE A STAR************************************

MJ will show everyone....he'll be just like Daughtry and blow the world away with his first album. Get that stupid Syesha off the show, she has absolutely NO talent what so ever, she is way out of her league compared to the rest of the remaining crowd.
