The drama of the top 12 played as expected on tonight’s “American Idol.” The pleasant surprise was that the horrible Danny Noriega was booted.
Noriega’s personality grated on America like nails on a chalkboard. The rest of the departures –Kady Malloy, Asia’h Epperson and Luke Menard — were the weakest of the bunch.
Now it’s a real crap shoot. Chikezie, Kristy Lee Cook, Syesha Mercado and Michael Johns are on the bubble. I’m surprised that David Hernandez and Amanda Overmyer are still in the competition. David Archuleta and Brooke White remain the ones to beat. They have been the most consistent of any of the contestants.
