Jessica Meuse is off American Idol. Did she deserve to go?

I could not agree more...it has been painfully obvious that 2 of the judges, especially one of them was very cleverly attempting to sway the vote not only through words but through posture, facial expression and body movements during contestant performances. And then to add insult to injury, said critiques and judgements were perpetuated by Randy and Ryan while addressing Jessica and Alex, by reiterating the judges' sentiment that they had a tough time during their first two songs in this week's performance show. Unfortunately I think that a lot of casual viewers, and maybe not so casual viewers are highly influenced by the judges. Jessica was my favorite by far, and I feel this was an inappropriate use of "power" by certain judges. Although Idol has always been my favorite, The Voice has it beat in fairness and design.

I knew there would be someone out here like you who wouldn't be afraid to tell American Idol (hereafter A.I.) and the casual viewers and voters that "something odd" has taken place on the A.I. 2014 Live Shows. My point is, When I look at the individual performances, incorporated with the judges comments- because I was already thinking that something felt different about this years A.I. 2014 show. This is when I began investigating the following criteria a). the minutes and seconds given to each contestant; b). number of words spoken by the judges for each contestant; c). what is said to the contestants each week; d). The posture, facial expression and body movements of the judges during contestant performances. Where does A.I. draw the line when all plays a significant role that determines if the A.I. 2014 Live Shows has the integrity to be FAIR !!! The evidence is stacking up against 2 of the judges. The A.I. Fans are not stupid! Potentially, millions of viewers see the differences between this year and the previous Years. The Hollywood Gossip headline read: quote: "Did Jessica Meuse deserve to get voted off American Idol?"
What we have written, is based on our observations as fans of A.I. My question now is- how much muscle/influence does The Hollywood Gossip have to get our thoughts to decision makers within the A.I. High Echelon? I am afraid that if our thoughts go un-noticed, it will ruin the amazing American Idol program that I have grown to love.

I am a American Idol (hereafter A.I.) fan, and have spent countless hours of my time being a fan of the show for 12/13 seasons. I have noticed a different "body language" by the judges this year in terms of fair and helpful constructive criticism, and, quite frankly, the lack of "articulation of words" used by two of the judges appear to have "swayed the public opinion and votes" from a contestant(s) of this years A.I. 2014 show.
Correct me if I am wrong, but, The rule is, for judges to have a fair opinions in criticism in order to let the public vote for the winner. The judges should not have there own agenda and seal it with a kiss?????? I think when you listen back to the judges comment regarding Jessica Meuse (past 4 weeks) who was eliminated from the top three in the live show last night, you may or may not see what appears to be good intention, however, if you listen with an un- bias ear, you should hear that the judges have given a horrible and unbecoming perception to the integrity of this amazing show in fairness. Usually, this type of audio and visual evidence lead to a corrective action. After all, what is fair?

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.
