"Can you feel the love tonight? It is where we are." The Top 11 Redux results!

Thia Megia is eliminated along with Naima Adepapo...

She is going to be just fine. She'll be on tour and all but still this is devastating. We're still trying to process how this could have happened. Later you guys. :(

Two people are going home. We are not feeling the love! How can this be? Thia is in the bottom three people... :(

Lyrics of "Daniel" Music: Elton John and Lyrics: Bernie Taupin

Daniel is travelling tonight on a plane
I can see the red tail lights heading for Spain
Oh and I can see Daniel waving goodbye
God it looks like Daniel, must be the clouds in my eyes
They say Spain is pretty though I've never been
Well Daniel says it's the best place that he's ever seen
Oh and he should know, he's been there enough

Lord I miss Daniel, oh I miss him so much
Daniel my brother you are older than me
Do you still feel the pain of the scars that won't heal
Your eyes have died but you see more than I
Daniel you're a star in the face of the sky

Daniel is travelling tonight on a plane
I can see the red tail lights heading for Spain
Oh and I can see Daniel waving goodbye
God it looks like Daniel, must be the clouds in my eyes
Oh God it looks like Daniel, must be the clouds in my eyes

[ LIVE SHOW IS OVER. We have removed the link. Thank you all for watching with us. ]

To the undecided, let's rock the vote for Thia Megia!! pretty please with sugar on top! :-)


Today March 30th, Thia and the Idols will cover hits from Elton John's songbook.

Last week, America put Thia in the bottom three. That was too close of a call but remember, she didn't get the lowest number of votes, believe it or not Casey did. The unexpected new bottom three made us question our earlier premise that Twitter followers may be a good indicator on who's going home next... Casey ranks number two and is still at number 2 as of today, and Thia is still at number 6 on the most followers list.

If we are to voice out loud our conspiracy theory, we'd say that last week's results was staged so they can deliver a show promised to be "shocking" as Nigel Lythgoe twittered. What could be more shocking than putting three people who has never been in the bottom three before? Oh we know, eliminate Casey Abrams! But we'll use the one save on him so really he's not eliminated. And by the way, all eleven of them are going on tour. Whaaat? Yup, and their show was in fact up by 11% that night.  20.74 million viewers tuned in as opposed to 17.624 million the week prior. Mission accomplished.

Last week's result was a fluke, an unexpected, accidental occurrence! We're still sticking by the Twitter trend! And hopefully we'll have Thia Megia far longer than what the twitter trend is suggesting!!

While it is wonderful to see Thia in her A-game week after week, it doesn't matter to the real fans like us. From day one we've already decided who we are rooting for no matter what. If she has an off week, we're there voting, if she delivered a great performance- we're there voting!! No matter what others say about Thia, the fans are there to support, vote and even defend her if need be!

The Thia fans or any fan of the other contestants will always vote for their favorites.
 
However, not to add pressure on Thia but Naima, Jacob and Haley just proved that a strong performance is the difference between winning and losing the votes from the undecided. The three based on their social networking followers, don't have a massive support group or fan base, yet they have successfully managed to stay in the competition based on their performances week after week. Yes, like in politics there are a huge number of undecided voters who don't belong to any party and are relying on the actual performances of the candidates to win them over! Meaning, if they performed well, they get the votes- if not... well sorry.

Thia doesn't need to prove anything to her fans but has more convincing to do to the undecided.

If you are undecided, we humbly say please take notice!! We see something truly special in her that you might have missed because you read too many critics write her off from the very beginning.

If you just open your ears and follow your heart, you'll see what we see-- a beautiful, smart 16 year old with a tone and sound quality that is recordable, singular and powerful. She IS a performer, and she CAN connect to her audience. Her strong presence in the music world is highly needed and couldn't come at a better time when the industry needs more young teens worthy of emulating. A true inspiration to the youth of her generation, she's the complete package artist!

We have scoured YouTube today for inspiration. These fans are showing who they're rooting for and their pick is Thia Megia.

This post is dedicated to the undecided. Please take the time to discover the voice and the talent behind the dreamer. Let's make her dreams come true!


Look, a support from THE Kenny Hamilton, Justin Beiber's personal manager!! He just tweeted this last night to his 200 thousand plus plus followers!!

"Vote and support Thia Megia on American Idol tomorrow! She's got skills! @TMEGIAAI10, @musicmgmtintl"


Give her a chance... :) Let's rock the vote for Thia Megia!! Game on!

A Sunday in the life of the American Idol Top 11 Finalists... (Photos)

It's Sunday, it must be time for another Ford commercial music video shoot!

Photos on the set courtesy of @AmericanIdol and Paul McDonald. This week theme involves "superheroes" and getting saved by one (maybe two)...

 
 

Updated: The Top 11 [Round 2] will sing hits from Sir Elton John's songbook! We got the list, let's speculate!

American Idol on twitter announced Friday, March 25 that the Top 11 theme has been changed to cover Sir Elton John's music, instead of the 1980's hits in honor of Sir John's birthday.

@americanidol “UPDATE: It’s official, next week’s theme is Elton John songs! And we wish the Rocket Man a very happy 64th birthday today!”


UPDATE: Found this video of the Season 3, Top 9 performing an Elton John medley-- the girls: LaToya London, Jennifer Hudson, Fantasia, Diana DeGarmo, Jasmine Trias and Camille Velasco singing "Bennie and Jets!! The guys: "Daniel" plus group: "Saturday night's alright for fighting" {Notice interesting on the vid? Idol didn't give any solos to Jasmine or Camille! Hmmm...}



Elton John has created some of the best love songs ever composed! The younger generation might not be familiar with his catalog which is a shame but hey we were shocked to hear Jacob Lusk say he's never heard of the songs from The Beatles (!!); we shouldn't act too surprised if Scotty says he has no clue who Elton John is.

This theme will hopefully not render a sleepy show! Most of Elton's biggest hits are ballads. But we're more worried that the contestants will butcher his songs...

We'd like to ask help to our readers please: CALLING ANYONE who KNOWS THIA or her family and can get in touch with them, please tell them to checkout WHAT NOT TO SING on American Idol.

We have mentioned it before but it seems Thia doesn't know of this complete database site that has all the songs ever been done on Idol. Not only that, it shows who sang what and how they ended up after their performance!

We called it in SMILE (Gina Glocksen (S6) and Paige Miles (S9) sang that song. Both were in the bottom three and Gina got eliminated in her season singing 'Smile'!)

Now "Heat Wave." Though again we said hers was the best rendition to date-- America seem 'tired' of hearing that song. If Thia researched it on whatnottosing.com she would have found out that she was the 5th person to sing that song and two people were in the bottom and she's the third and that will be on record forever! :(

Ok, we've done the research for you guys on the Elton John songs already performed on the Idol stage... but you can always check out that site. It's a must-bookmark site to any Idol fan. :)

American Idol Facebook "Poke" now available! Poll: Which 'poke' do you like best? (Videos)


For a limited time throughout the month of April, the American Idol Facebook "poke" will be available for free, and then will cost users 10 Credits = $1. They may have something new for May if this takes off.

Are you going to try it?! This is all too silly we know. It'll be better if they donate the proceeds to those in need instead of pocketing it all. Hopefully, they're also giving some to the contestants! We first blogged about it here.


Please take our poll after you view the other video! :)

Thia Megia still trending in Yahoo! Search...!

We saw the tweets since yesterday that Thia is trending. Yahoo! on twitter even said so yet we haven't seen it ourselves.

Today, March 25th at 2pm (ET) - there it is, in the Yahoo! portal/homepage, Thia Megia is trending at number two (2)! The dramatic breakdown of Casey Abrams may be the talk of the day but he isn't getting that much interest among Yahoo! internet users. Good or bad Thia is...

We'll take that any day! Thank you Yahoo! users.  :)
