Tonight's show started with a glimpse of a producers desire to be current.
The final group of 12 smiled vigorously as they crooned Katy Perry's "Hot 'n Cold". All this time I thought that it was the group SONG that made these performances so cheesy. You learn something new every day.
It was so clear that Lil' Rounds and Scott Macintyre would make it through to the finals that their victory announcements were made obviously anti-climatically. They knew that whoever won that coveted third seat would be a shock. It didn't mater who it was.
My guess was that it would be between Felicia Barton, Von Smith, Ju'Not Joyner, and Jorge Nunez. Because of personal connections, I was rooting for Felicia, but alas, Jorge is declared the victor.
I am very glad for him. This guy is an amazing artist. He has great control on his vocals and a fantastic sound. But now there are only three girls in the Top 12 so far and I can almost guarantee a wildcard spot for Anoop Desai, which would only leave two more spots even available for the girls. And given the level of talent that the guys brought to the table, I would be surprised to see either of those spots taken by girls. But I'm still rooting for Felicia.
So what do you think? Do you have any guesses at who will take those final two spots?
