We all know that whoever gets eliminated at this point in American Idol
doesn't just lose a shot at the big prize. The person that gets the boot tonight also loses the chance to participate in the American Idol
summer tour, which is a good way to get publicity and some bucks off ticket sales. With that in mind, last night should've been pretty good, right?
Well, it wasn't the most memorable thing, really. In fact, some of us would rather forget it. Mind you, we're only referring to most of the performances last night, not all of it. That's pretty evident from the numbers we're crunching today: the poll numbers are landslides, and my bottom three is the exact same as Abbey's bottom three. Fantasy TV is saying the same thing, too. Does that mean tonight's elimination is an absolute certainty?

Experts' picks for elimination:
For the first time, Abbey and I totally agree on these. Our bottom three:
Abbey thinks Lee Dewyze and Tim Urban could be in danger. I think with the praise he got tonight, Lee will be nowhere near the bottom three--but I was wrong last week.
So we all seem to agree, the person going home: Paige Miles. It's about time, don't you think? (Image courtesy of Fox)
