Anoop got the boot

April 25, 2009

My American idol bet Anoop Desai has been eliminated from the show, together with fellow contestant Lil Rounds as part of the double-elimination week.


I agree with Rickey‘s observation. Anoop got robbed… again. Matt shouldn’t have been saved last week after his atrocious rendition of  “Have You Ever Really Loved A Woman“. And how about his “Staying Alive” performance wherein he couldn’t pull flawless falsettos and smooth riffs and runs? Sir Bitter was correct when he said that Matt was “ staying the fuck alive“. Not that I’m bashing other contestants. I just think Anoop deserves to stay longer than Matt (and even Danny Offkey Gokey).

From a religious follower of the show since Top 36, I saw Anoop’s elimination coming. It was really something expected. TPTB has something against Anoop. From the judges’ comments, the exposure given to Anoop, to Seacrest’s leading questions, etc. etc. As’s Michael Slezak put it, “Anoop never seemed to get much respect from the Idol machine “. He was always un- and underappreciated. He was this season’s “designated punching bag”. Thank you, TPTB. So much for your manipulation this season.

Anyway, here is Anoop performing “True Colors” and “Everything I Do (I Do It For You)“, two of his best perfs.

Now I’m done watching this show. Sucks to know there would no longer be studio recordings of Anoop to download and listen to. I guess I should stick to the ones I have plus his Clef Hanger videos while waiting for his future album.
