Megan Joy Corkrey has been eliminated from American Idol. I felt sooner or later, she would definitely get the boot out in this pretending-to-be-a-singing-competition that is AI… but not before Scott. I just can’t believe Scott “the overstaying blind man and mediocre singer who’s just there because of sympathy votes” is still up in the running. Wow.

Anyway, now that she’s gone in the show, I’ll miss her quirkiness, unique voice, and crazy antics. VFTW folks will definitely miss her too. The CAW CAW, her flipping, her weird dancing… everything. And one of the things that set her apart from other contestants is her devil-may-care attitude. Megan Joy does not care what the producers and judges think. She refuses to be pigeonholed as the “package artist” they want her to be. Contrary to other contestants (maybe except for Anoop Desai), Megan has the courage to give the judges a dose of their own medicine.

Just an excerpt from her Entertainment Weekly interview:

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: It seems like you performed the song way more in the judges’ faces last night than you did on Tuesday night. Was that a big F.U. to them?

MEGAN JOY: Yeah, I was ready to be right in their faces. They have a habit of talking to each other while we sing. That’s so rude.

    Scott has talent and you don’t have to close your ears to watch him- I actually didn’t even realise he was blind until last week ( too busy to catch all the shows). Megan was like a warbling idiot.

    ^Thanks for your reply.

    Everybody on the show has talent… including Scott. But the thing with Scott is, AI tends to lower their standards just because of his challenge (I think also pointed this out). Heck, the judges can’t even be so harsh when it is time to criticize him unlike how they throw other contestants under the bus and Scott’s performance sucked more.

    PS: Scott really freaks me out when he waves to the audience. Pay attention to his facial expression. LOL
