Skylar Laine Gets Eliminated On American Idol


Since I have only come in to this season of American idol in the last two weeks I have not seen the run of bad performances by Hollie Cavanagh so didn't even know she had been in the bottom two for the past two months solid. That is hanging by a thread every week. So, everyone was shocked that Skylar was eliminated last night but if you look at it from a perspective of only the one night of performing then I think she did deserve to go home. As much as this is a show about what you have done for a whole season and your body of work, you have to realize there are a lot of people like me who come in late to the show or to others who just watch some weeks and not the others and don't know about the body of work.

I only came in on this season about 4 weeks ago myself. I absolutely thought Phil or Jessica should have gone instead of Skylar. Phil was hideous this week! Jessica should have been gone weeks ago when America kicked her butt out. Nothing against the kid, she's got a technically beautiful voice, but she GRATES.
I want Hollie the underdog to win, but one of the boys will I'm sure. Hurumph!

IMO, Hollie didn't have horrible performances. I actually think she is super talented. However, she is horribly styled and doesn't always look that confident.

The only talent show I am waiting for is Americas Got Talent with Howard Stern!

IMO - love Phillip, love Hollie, love Steven Tyler too.

Skylar was a little too "extra" every week, kinda trying too hard. She got on my nerves. Jessica and Joshua are super talented, but they lack personality. Hollie had a great week and Phillip had a bad week, but he has the teenybopper vote. I have been watching since the beginning of the season.

OT - MCA of the Beastie Boys died today of cancer. He was only 47. He was always my favorite. So sad.

Phil should have gone home for his falshitto alone. But he's the only white guy left, so no vote splitting.

Trixie: Just read that. So sad! Now, that was talent....Loved the Beastie Boys.

AI: I actually thought Skylar was the most marketable. Talented girl. Josh is talented as well, but totally unmarketable. Phillip grates on my nerves and Hollie and Jessica are just blech! Such a bad season overall.

I've watched all season, and lost heart when Elise went home, that girl could do it all.
Holly is good technically but lacks the maturity to give the lyrics meaning.
Skylar should do well anyway, someone will give her a break.She has lots of energy on stage, yes, sometimes too much, but has a big voice.
I liked Phil early on, but now feel I've heard the same song fifty times.

Jessica has great range and control, a *perfect voice* but when not singing a ballad she
doesn't know what to do on stage.

Joshua has amazing range, but gets on my nerves when he does a series of runs, just cuz' he can. He is great on the soul and R&B stuff.

At this point I really don't care who wins.

I'm not watching this show until one of their winners sells more albums than Adam Lambert. Phil will probably win, White guy with guitar #5 (I still read Vote for the Worst, for kicks).

I really like Hollie, but think it would have only been fair for her to go home last night.

Phil is my favourite, but his last 2 weeks have not been his best, in my opinion.

Jessica...ugh...Jimmy they said they were going to get her to be more 'age appropriate'...so WTF?? She does Tina Turner who was super sexy and raw, and Joe Cocker's intense "You are so Beatiful"...And I felt sick, like I was watching an episode of Toddlers & Tiara's to see they way she was dressed during Proud Mary. So inappropriate. She's a talented girl, but I can't relate to her at all. I do think she's looked a little extra 'sad' in the last couple weeks, probably has a lot going on in that 16 year old head of hers.

hollie is our favorite. the judges were really awful to her a few weeks ago. they also put hollie in the 1st slot more than any of the others, which is the worst place to be.

and its not supposed to be about the whole season, its supposed to be about each night of performing.

and apparently phillip phillip is pretty sick. jimmy, the guy that works with the guest mentor each week, keeps saying things about it. this week he said "anyone else would have quit".

DixieTheNoble82 said...

I'm surprised. I personally couldn't stand something about Skylar but she is definitely talented. She will almost certainly be heard on country radio stations sometime in the future.

@Trixie - how sad :^[ May he R.I.P.

Del Riser said...

@me, Phil had surgery for kidney stones early on in the competition and sang the same week. He seems to have recurring bouts with this problem.

kcqueen said...

I've watched since the beginning of the season and Skyler was like listening to fingernails on the chalkboard. I think Hollie has shown the most improvement and growth- she has an awesome voice, she just needs better guidance, and more stage time. The judges have been hideous to her all season-(except this past week, when they couldn't deny how good she was) P2 is good, but you can tell he's not feeling all that great- Jessica is annoying as hell and the judges need to stop pumping her up. Joshua is legitimately good- Hollie or Joshua for the win.

Snowstorms said...

Thanks Trixie and Nana Lala! "Fight for your right to party" was my first anthem growing up. That hot me hard! Very disappointed that Enty didn't post about him!

I have missed the past few weeks. I like Phillip, because he is happy being who he is and doesn't want to change. ITA with whomever said poor Hollie is styled all wrong! I was surprised Colton went before her or Elise. I thought he was top five for sure. Once Taylor Hicks beat Daughtey, this show started being a joke for the most part. Besides the instafame it gives you, the majority of recent winners haven't had much success.

chumsley said...

Hollie has really grown on me throughout the season. Maybe because she reminds me of Robyn when Show Me Love first came out. I think it'd be interesting to have a Hollie vs. Joshua finale.

Speaking of people being styled wrong, what's up with the stylists this year? Are they trying to sabotage the contestants through bad fashion? I know the contestants get to pick out what they like but you'd think they would've steered them away from the more unflattering looks.

auntliddy said...

Elise wasnt ready, or marketable. Needs to lighten and cut hair off face, get more sophistacated look. Sames goes for skylar. Hollie too is too young. And its true, enough eith jessica already. Beautiful voice but no star quality. Colton was irraitating. Josh is great, but his appearance will hurt him. Guess we will see!

I'm really surprised she was eliminated. Something about her got on my nerve as well, but no doubt she has a great voice. I'm sure she'll still get a contract with someone.
