I don't know, maybe I'm burned out on Idol. I just think that by this point in the season we should be past solid performances. Usually there are solid and then standout. I think I'm missing the standout performances.
As to who should have been put through. I thought Lauren Turner should have gotten a shot at the wild card round and that Kendra C. should have made it to the finals. But that's just me.
For me, the difference this season is the lack of difference in basic ability. I expected everyone in the top 13 to be capable of singing in tune and on time. Not so in prior seasons. With no roadkill in the top 13, it reduces the opportunity to "save the show" by laying down a very good performance after a bad one. It's all coming down to the voters preference for genre and the type of performance they like.

It's really funny how most posters here at FSU absolutely hate Paul, but he's extremely popular with other people I talk to. He's apparently very popular with college age kids and all my gay friends absolutely love him. BTW, they hated Adam Lambert. Go figure.
In past seasons, in addition to some bad singers, I recall a really dreadful attempt or two at Bon Jovi by otherwise decent non-rockers and a couple of painful country songs by otherwise decent non-country singers. This year's contestants who are attached to one style have been able to choose a song in that style or adapt it anyway. No one has been required to lay an egg.
I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.

Plus Pia, Casey, Haley, James, Naima, & Lauren. They would have still had a good mix & IMO much better voices. Or they could have had the traditional top 12 & cut Casey. He's a good musician but his voice is pretty limited.
