After such a poor showing on Tuesday evening’s American Idol episode, it wasn’t a big surprise when host Ryan Seacrest read the card Wednesday evening with Paige Miles’ name on it.Â Â In fact, her performance was so bad that even Tim Urban’s completely flat delivery on Queen’s “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” couldn’t save her.Â So, just before she would have entered the American Idol Top 10, which would have made her eligible for the tour in the summer, Paige Miles was sent home.Â
TheÂ American Idol results show came down to Tim Urban and Paige Miles (and Katie Stevens, although she was sent back to ‘safety’ right away), as it should have.Â Their performances were by far the worst during the Top 11’s performances.Â And although there is a “Save” opportunity, where a contestant can be saved by a unanimous vote by the judges, Simon Cowell informed Paige Miles that she would not be singing for her life and he didn’t want her to have any false illusions (which means that Simon Cowell himself would not have voted for her and that would have sealed her fate).Â
But Paige Miles got into elimination trouble through song choice.Â Her choice this week for Billboard Hot 100 #1 songs was “Against All Odds” by Phil Collins (and covered later by Mariah Carey).Â She seemed to start off in the wrongÂ key and couldn’t seem to find the right note anytime during theÂ performance.Â She even hadÂ judge Randy Jackson saying that it was “honestly terrible.”Â Simon Cowell told her that it was asÂ if five different people wereÂ trying to singÂ the song.Â
This week’s mentor, Miley Cyrus sang her latest release, “When I Look At You.”Â Later in the show, Demi Lovato and Joe Jonas sang their hit, “Make A Wave.”
Paige Miles made her exit singing the classic Free single she sang the first night of live competition, “Alright Now.”Â
So much for the bold predictions for the girls to be the big winners this year.Â The American Idol Top 10 is comprised ofÂ six guysÂ and four girls.Â Of course, a female could still win it all — especially Crystal Bowersox, who seems to have captured the attention of just about everyone.
