Allison Iraheta Eliminated from American Idol

by at . Comments

Because Fox producers decided weeks ago that they wanted to see Adam Lambert and Danny Gokey in the final and, as a result, the judges' comments this week weren't remotely critical of a terrible performance by Gokey, Allison Iraheta was eliminated from American Idol last night.

Prior to learning that Iraheta would be sent packing, viewers listened as Danny himself criticized his previous evening's rendition of Aerosmith's "Dream On.

"I listened to it back, and I must say, I laughed the whole night," Gokey said, adding: "My own aunt muted the TV."

Are finalists allowed to have one poor performance? Of course. But why was Danny given an "A-plus" for his effort from multiple judges, and why did Paula Abdul's entire critique of his audition Monday involve simply asking the audience if they were Danny Gokey fans?

Weak. Sauce.

As for Iraheta, she can at least take solace in this week's guest performer: Chris Daughtry was voted off early during his American Idol season, has gone on to incredible success and said last night, "At the time it felt like the world was coming to an end... but I got over it about 30 seconds later."

this is hollywood at its best i just makes you sick to see how they play with people's emotions. Gokey should have been voted off. He got away with taking a musical dump on stage in front of milions and got away with it. so now they have their all white all male contestants.....boring
