American Idol on 16th April: Kirsty Lee Cook is out of the gameApril 17th, 2008 - 11:42 am ICT by amritpal
16th April: American Idol night. Someone has to go. Kristy Lee is joined by Brooke White and Syesha Mercado in the bottom three. Then, it is Kristy Lee and Brooke. Finally, it is Kirsty Lee cook, who is out. There is not much fuss. Simon tells Kristy Lee that her time has come and the show goes on.
The judge Paula Abdul was very supportive and was blown away but that didn’t help her much as far as the audeince votes are concerned.
The website votefortheworst.com which has been campaigning to vote her as the worst says “7th place for the girl we thought would go home in 10th is pretty damn good. And we have some great Worsts left to jump to now, so although we miss Kristy’s seat, someone else can now fill it.”
What was most striking was that Cook had performed very well on Tuesday and she was ousted, while she had been pathetic for a long time and survived. In fact, one of the reviewers (Christin Shullo) commented on her 15th April performance that ” If the winner was being chosen from tonight’s performance alone, the winner (at least in my opinion) would be Kristy Lee Cook. She made an excellent song choice and gave an excellent performance. If she keeps going in the same direction, she could easily be at the top!” What an irony!
