American Idol Top 24 Results: Tim Urban Too ‘Adorable’ To Boot?

If you tuned into the American Idol Thursday evening results show expecting to see Tim Urban and Janell Wheeler sent packing from the Top 24, you were probably shocked to see the lucky-to-be-called-back Tim Urban remaining by show’s end in the Top 20.  Simon Cowell had told him after Wednesday night’s American Idol Top 12 (for the guys) performance of OneRepublic’s “Apologize” that the judges had made the right decision by sending him home in the first place.  So how did he get through to the Top 20?

Janell Wheeler, as well as Joe Munoz, Tyler Grady, and Ashley Rodriguez, were sent home.  And although Munoz, Grady, and Rodriguez were part of the Top 24 potential eliminations going into the results show (because you never truly ‘know’ who is going to be sent home), Janell Wheeler and Tim Urban seemed to be a ‘lock’ for being booted. 

Janell Wheeler simply could not hit the powerful high notes necessary to sing Heart’s “What About Love?” with conviction Tuesday night.  She literally butchered the song.  The only thing worse was having to hear her do it again Thursday night in her farewell encore. 

As the American Idol universe attempted to balance itself out Wednesday night, Tim Urban was overpowered by his song choice, according to American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi.  Randy Jackson said that “none of it worked.”  Ellen Degeneres agreed with the other judges but told him that he was “adorable,” but that adorable might not be enough.

Apparently, adorable was enough, hence the results show reveal that saw Urban sit back down on the Sofa of Safety…

But any American Idol fan can tell you that there are always those who get through that shouldn’t (Sanjaya Malakar, Megan Joy Corkry, to name just a couple), just because they’re “adorable,” or “hot,” or have a sympathetic or great backstory.  In the coming weeks, it will be seen just how far “adorable” takes Tim Urban.  But if he continues to produce cacophonous noise akin to Wednesday night’s offering on the American Idol stage, he is not long for the Top 24 (or the Top 20, for that matter) and will soon fall victim to a future results show.

However imagine if you added some great pictures or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and videos, this website could undeniably be one of the greatest in its niche. Excellent blog!

    11. I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both equally educative and entertaining, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is an issue that too few folks are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy I came across this during my hunt for something concerning this.
