Who made it to the Top 5 of American Idol?April 24th, 2008 - 11:19 am ICT by amritpal
This Tuesday night, American Idol selected its Top 5 contestants. At the start of the show, Carly Smithson and Syesha Mercado - the two talented were at the bottom of the list of 38 million ballot results. The judges had to make a choice and so they did. To the utter disbelief of the music lovers, the best performer of the night - Carly Smithson was voted off. Syesha made it to the Top 5 along with David Archuleta, David Cook, Brooke White, and Jason Castro.
The two Davids - Archuleta and Cook sailed through as expected and in spite of the odd voting trends, where the good singers are being voted out week after week. Judges found Jason Castro charming and Brook White made it above Mercado and Smithson in spite of stopping mid way while rendering the song You Must Love Me from Evita and starting all over again. The two Davids however remained the favorites, but the watchers say that anything can happen on the show. Especially after seeing the elimination of Michael Jones earlier and now Carly Smithson.
We have to wait and see what more surprises are awaiting us next week. We will miss you Carly.
