As much as I agree with you that Elise did brilliantly, for the purposes of AI it's all about the viewing audience, which forms the voting public -- and how many Led Zep fans even watch Idol, let alone vote?Originally Posted by Phil Taylor /t/318418/the-2012-american-idol-11-htf-raf-memorial-top-ten-challenge/30#post_3911435
Thinking I'll be taking a hit with placing Elise at 9th after her rendition of that Zep classic tonite - she nailed it....
For promo purposes, I guess every vote-off is a "shocker". It wouldn't be very interesting if Seacrest disclosed that the one voted off was completely foreseeable, would it? From their perspective they'd argue that because Heejun had possibly his best performance so far, that getting voted off after it was a 'shocker'.Originally Posted by Patrick Sun /t/318418/the-2012-american-idol-11-htf-raf-memorial-top-ten-challenge/30#post_3911872
I feared it was Hollie going home last night. Heejun wasn't as big of a shocker as Seacrest had promoted the show with in the afternoon.
