Kristy Lee Cook got the hook tonight from “American Idol”, proving that occasionally the show is about talent. If Brooke White had been axed, I would have thrown something squishy at my TV.
To be sure, Cook has a decent voice but she isn’t in the same league as White or Syesha Mercado or Carly Smithson for that matter. Amanda Overmyer, the rock-n-roll nurse, had more personality than any of the contestants that are left in the show.
Cook managed to do some decent performances. She survived being in the bottom three countless times and a disastrous performance on Beatles theme night. Being a pretty all-American blond has its perks.
The show. now, is starting to get interesting.
Syesha Mercado is hanging in there despite getting lukewarm praise from the judges. Carly Smithson has softened her biker babe look. The tattoos and the foreign accent are two strikes against her. Brooke White, though outshines them all. I am expecting her and David Archuleta to be the final two left in the competition.
