American Idol 7 – Top 8 Results – Goodbye Michael Johns [recap]

April 11, 2008

This week we wave bye bye to Michael Johns, the first shocker elimination thus far. Michael sang “Dream On” this week and got negative feedback from the judges, and was shockingly axed.

This week’s bottom three consisted of Syesha, Carly and Michael, which I have correctly predicted. I thought it was bound to be between Carly and Syesha, since both of them were in the bottom three before. Nevertheless a shocked Michael Johns was sent home and sent Carly into tears, who was positive that she was the one to go.

(In order) Brooke, David Cook, David Archuleta, Jason and Kristy were all given passes to sit at the couch, and thus leaving the bottom 3.

Carly was obviously feeling incredibly shocked at the results, she cried the most after Ryan announced Michael’s fate, with the rest of the girls consulting her. Michael’s roommate David Cook was obviously sad as well, it seems he wept a few tears. Jason Castro seemed oblivious to everything, he was just happy he made it through. Simon was expectedly upset as well, Michael was one of his favourite contestant on the show, and didn’t hesitate to stand and clap for him.

On the plus side, last year’s winner Jordin Sparks received her acknowledgments for her outstanding album sales and immensely huge singles, “Tattoo” and “No Air“. Jordin performed “No Air” with Chris Brown during the show. Jordin looked amazing and she is a phenomenon. She definitely deserves everything she got.

Ryan also announced that Idol Gives Back has thus far harnessed a whopping $60 million so far. I remember last year’s was $76 million, and I don’t think that they could top that amount this year, no matter how many “A-Listers” show up. Unless Idol doesn’t want the shame and top up the total amount.

Michael going so soon is definitely a shocker, this just shows that anyone can be eliminated at any point of the game, unless you’re David Archuleta of course.

  1. I feel sad that he went. He was my 2nd favorite after David Archuleta.

    I loved Jordin’s performance with Chris Brown. She really is amazing.

  2. America’s not being fair. Michael is one of the BEST among them.

  3. NOOO!
    American voters suck.
    Michael is definitely a great singer!

  4. i was out on vacation for the past week so i didn’t get to watch the show. this is a real shocker for me. America really got it wrong. Michael is clearly one of the top guys there much better than david and jason. this sucks!!! 🙂
