2 American Idol Finalists Head Home

Thia Megia and Naima Adedapo, American Idol contenders, were sent home after getting the lowest text votes this week.

Naima, 26, is a dance instructor from Milwaukee while Thia, 16, the youngest finalist in the group, is a freshmen high school student from Mountain House, California. Both were booted out of the competition after garnering the lowest text votes from viewers. This happened after their rendition of Elten John’s “Daniel” and “I’m Still Standing.”

The two were joined in the bottom three by Paul McDOnald. He is a 26-year-old singer-songwriter and sang “Rocket Man”, Wednesday.

Naima, did not originally make it to the final 12, but was given a second-chance as a wild card after her feisty performance. She also made the crowd go wild after giving strong song-and-dance number of Rihanna’s Umbrella.

Thia, on the other hand, is the youngest American Idol finalist in the history of the competition at the age of 15. She started as a strong competitor and a crowd-favorite. Her past few performances, however, disappointed the judges as they all seemed monotonous. Jennifer Lopez even said, Wednesday, that it seemed like they have seen her performance before and they want to see her doing something else.

On a lighter note, Casey Abrams, the quirky camp counselor got the highest votes. Ryan Seacrest, American Idol host, even said that if Adams knew how much votes he got, he would be very pleased. Abrams, 20, sang “Your Song” still by Elton John, Wednesday.

There are eight remaining contestants in American Idol 10, and viewers can expect one American Idol hopeful will be eliminated next week.
