The (Un)Surprising Elimination of Stefano Langone
Well, I mean to say, I watched it, but I wasn't watching. I had a lot to do and I just didn't have time to focus on the show and take notes like I usually do. But I think we can all agree that it's not necessary to watch every moment of the elimination show anyway.
So let's just chat about the important parts.
There were a couple of uncomfortable group numbers, the first was Hey Soul Sister with Jacob Lusk, Stefano Langone, Haley Reinhart and Lauren Alaina. This was just as bad as I thought it would be.
Then we had Casey Abrams, Scotty McCreery and James Durbin singing Coldplay's Viva la Vida. When I first heard that these three would be singing together, I couldn't quite imagine how that would work out. But, actually, they sounded better together than I thought they would. Also, it appears Scotty doesn't have to twang. HE JUST DOES THAT ON PURPOSE. Why would anyone do that on purpose? Sigh.
So then we have the eliminations. The B3 was Jacob, Stefano and Haley.
To the surprise of absolutely no one, Stefano is heading home tonight. And really, wasn't it about time he was put out of his misery?
