Michael Lynche Eliminated from American Idol

by at . Comments

American Idol may be an utter bore this season, but it can still deliver an emotional wallop at times.

On last night's results show, for example, Michael Lynche and Crystal Bowersox found themselves in the bottom two.

After Ryan Seacrest revealed that Big Mike would be heading home, the tears started to flow. First, from Michael's wife, cradling the couple's newborn daughter. Then, from various audience members as Lynche sang Michael Jackson's "Will You Be There" and, finally, from a certain celebrity gossip blogger's living room.

He just seemed really nice, okay?!?

Bye, Big Mike

We're down to Bowersox, Casey James and Lee DeWyze on the worst season in Idol history. Who do you hope takes home the crown?

The night was not a total downer, of course. Bon Jovi, Daughtry and Fantasia all performed. Along with shots of Mike and Crystal, these artists are featured below:

Paula was not the show! It's doing fine without her but will it do fine without Simon?? Also, get your head oout of the sand, Chris Allen has a hit song on the radio. What's the matter with you people??

Three left but what will the result be this week: My prediction is that Casey will leave the show next. The two finalist that will be bashing it out is Crystal and Lee.
The winner will be overall in American Idol 2010: Crystal will win. Lee will have very close scores too but he will come in second.
All the best for the three left. Congratulations for all those that made it in American Idol yet many will still be singing and of course enjoyed the ride and experience of a lifetime so they can follow their dreams at the end it dont matter if you win or not the main thing it was meant to be. Keep reaching for the stars and the sky is the limit believe it and go for it. If the desire and passion is there you will reach your goal.
Simon is leaving being the judge of American Idol in future but I think that Harry Conick would make an amazing judge if given the opportunity yet hes a busy man. Whoever takes Simon place I am sure they will be good for the show.

Whatever happened to Chris Allen who won over Adam Lambert? American Idol promotes who they want to promote. This proves that their voting system is sooo flawed.

Michael was the best singer on this season American idol. Who is voting? I won't be watching American Idol anymore until they change their voting system.

For a bunch a losers who "hate" the show you sure seem to be watching a lot of it. Lets not forget, America is voting for these people, not the judges. Bowersox is probably one of the only true musical artist who have been on the show.While she will not be popular singing formula ridden music and lyrics, she will do quite well. Anyone heard of Tori Amos?? Not saying she is Tori but she is unique as well.

This year has been the worse ID10T show in the history of time. Pauls was the show. Now that she is gone all has gone to hell. This show will never be the same. Now really who is going to buy any of the one's left CD's it's going to be like the soul protrol guy. Have you heard from him????????? Think not and what about last year winner how far has he gone???????????? Well the second string loser has came out better than the winners in the past. This show has gone to hell. When Simone is gone then it's really going to be over with..........The worse show ever. I am ready for this show to end forever go off the air it's a loser show...

I just hope that Crystal dosen't win. She is just so ordinary, and not commercial. I can't stand listening to her. Absolutely loved Mike and Sibohan, they were both excellent for my ears. But when you end up with someone like Crystal, well, she looks so tacky as well. Now if I had to choose it would be Lee. Crystal would be here today gone tomorrow.

Mike should of went the first time he was eliminated!You cannot make him a star if he is heavy and just an average singer.Words can come out of the judges mouths trying to make him what he is not.Idol has to look the part as well as being talented.What is left are talented nice idol star looking people.Now it is a fair fight!May the best win.Lets make it a real winner,not a flash in a pan for a year and then nothing.We need the real deal to make idol the real thing not just make believe!

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.

Paula Abdul [after Brooke White was eliminated on season seven]

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.
