American Idol The Judges Use Their Save
On American Idol the judges can use a save to keep an eliminated contestant in the competition. They can use it once, prior to the the top Five, and obviously have to agree.
Last night on Idol the judges used it, but did they use it wisely, I think not.
Big Mike Lynche was up for elimination due to a pretty poor rendition of Eleanor Rigby. However it was his lucky day and he was told that he would be back next week.
With four more weeks to the top five it was a bit risk for the judges to save this guy who has an OK voice, but does not have the potential to win the competition. It also now means that Crystal Bowesox or Siobhan could be at risk of being eliminated in the next couple of weeks and that would be a travesty.
