‘American Idol’ eliminates one more

NEW YORK (AP) — It’s over for Chris Sligh.

Sligh, the curly-haired jokester who once claimed he was “bringing chubby back,” said goodbye to “American Idol” on Wednesday, becoming the latest singer bounced in viewer voting.

The sacking of Sligh, 28, who hails from Greenville, South Carolina, winnowed the number of “Idol” wannabes to nine. The winner will be chosen in May.

“I think it’s bye-bye, curly,” predicted Simon Cowell, before the results were announced.

Cowell said on Tuesday’s program that Sligh’s rendition of the Police classic “Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic” was a “mess.”

Haley Scarnato and Phil Stacey had the next-lowest vote tallies in the phone balloting, which drew more than 30 million calls and text messages.

Stacey, 29, of Jacksonville, Florida, managed to get on Cowell’s good side after his solid cover of “Every Breath You Take.”

“This may surprise you, Phil, but I actually thought that was very good,” Cowell said Tuesday.

The acerbic judge was not as nice to Scarnato, deriding the 24-year-old Texas girl’s take on “True Colors” as safe and forgettable.

(Question: Will Sanjaya Malakar, who is undoubtedly a national sensation, stick around until the finale? Could happen, as long as the “Idol” oddball keeps stoking watercooler discussion.)

Wednesday’s elimination show also featured a get-up-and-dance performance by Gwen Stefani and rapper Akon, who performed Stefani’s hit single “The Sweet Escape.”


Update: someone posted below, Chris, who? And I took it seriously and then realized it was witty………

Anyway, without further ado,

  1. I follow this show only at the urging of others in the house …well ok the urging is more like arm twisting. But be that as it may, to say this was a surprise is a huge understatement. Oh come on really; was “Rooster-Head” that much better than Chris? What the “f” were you all thinking!?! What!?!

  2. Rooster-head Sanjaya? Very funny, but I agree. I agree too with with the judges – a bad performance hurts but a bad song choice will kill you. I was hoping Chris would have had a chance to selected a song from Meat Loaf. He would have nailed it!!!

  3. Oh get over it. Chris would not have made it to the top 5 or even the top 10. He doesn’t have the look that sells. Its about marketability baby and round boy ain`got it. Have you heard of Rubin? Exactly.

    As for “Rooster-head” Sanjaya – I agree,! Dude, that defies all logic.
