The disappearance of Idol's Syesha Mercado!

Dawnie Walton, Annie Barrett, and I break it on down…live from Central Park! Was it sabotage, was it simply Syesha’s time to go, or a little of both?

    It’s all about the song choices. Maybe next year, they should take their cues from us, the viewers, the buying public. Give us a chance to tell them what they should sing for a change. We know what we want to hear. Leaving it in the hands of the judges, producers and even the contestants is not a particularly great idea.
    Sye is gone because of song choice, same as everyone else before her.

    Syesha had more talent in her little finger than David Archuleta has in his whole body. She is a star for sure…D.A. is an insecure, nervous little boy who doesn’t even have an established genre of music. I only hope NOW that David Cook will win on his TALENT and that this won’t be a teeny bopper win for minimally talented Archuleta!

    Central Park in spring and witty observations, does it get any better than this?

  • tia

    Yeah right, it would have been better cut to 3 minutes. Witty observations?Too much talk about nothing.

    Well, Syesha has been fighting up a cliff for a while. With comments of Broadway haunting her the last several weeks, she waited too late to turn on the flow. She has sang very good in the last few shows and really deserved to be in the finals. David Artichoke should have been gone weeks ago. Every thing he sings sounds the same. Brooke should have lasted longer than him and spagetti head. This year has been disappointing as David Cook is the only one that has any real talent and anyone else that had talent was cut WAY too soon in the season. Even Chikeze should have lasted longer than David A. At least Chikeze was entertaining and lively. Well maybe David A will win so David Cook can get started on his career and not have to be a slave/puppet to AI for his recording contract. David A will need someone to lead him around for many years. He does have raw talent and that will get better in about 5 years, but he is a fish out of water right now.

    It always bothered me how they never gave Syesha any positive feedback. Always negative comments from the judges…it was very hard for me to watch.

    My votes were split between Syesha and David Cook. I agree that Archie has a great voice, but he is so one dimensional. In 4-6 years perhaps, he will be better……IF he wants it enough. David C. is ready NOW! and so is Syesha. I do believe she was doomed from the beginning to fall. I hope she lands something great on Broadway, and shows them all!!
    David Cook should definitely be the American Idol for 2008. He will have all my votes……and my money too, when he cuts an album (CD).

    I loved this Idolatry.

  • Why oh why

    Syesha had no talent and 0 fan, she was always at the bottom of every online poll. The only sabotage here is that the producers carried that deadweight to the top3. In two weeks everyone will have forgotten about that screamer and her fake personality.

  • @ Artichoke

    “Brooke should have lasted longer than him and spagetti head.” Who is spaghetti head? What is a spaghetti head? LOL!

  • HannaB

    Sabotage?? How can anyone even think that? Syesha was in the bottom 2 almost every week. Do a search online…she has the least number of fans of all the Top 12. The real sabotage happened the week before, when AI got rid of Jason Castro and kept the person who undoubtedly got much fewer votes than he did. Sheeesh

    Two of the final four tried out just for the heck of it. The best two! One couldn’t believe he got that far and shot the tamborine man. (To the producers’ delight and with their help.) The other is in the final two. They’ve done well because viewers are getting tired of more of the same, but are also ambivelent about feeding human sacrifices into the AI machine. Archie wants it, and has been groomed for this all his life. But if you’re over 15, who wants to listen to him? Should Cook win, then spend years trying to show he’s more than the winner of a game show? Kelly and Carrie are successful, but it takes nerves of steel to pull it off. After this season, the AI people really need to rethink this show. More of the same is boring, but if someone ‘different’ wins, do they really?

    I must say this is the best Video Commentary to date! I love the wonder-woman vids, and the extreme locale of your chats! Sad to see Idol go, because that means no more video updates!

  • AC

    I’m probably the only one but I didn’t think the producer’s choice was that bad. It was her chance to show that she can fit into the top 40 market without any comparisons to some of the bigger stars, but she just didn’t do a very convincing job of it. Even if she did have a grand beautiful song, she would not have been able to get more votes than either of the Davids because she just doesn’t have enough fans. How exciting would it have been for a David vs Syesha finale? Boring! Also, I think her voice is good but part of it is a personality contest and hers is a little off-putting.

    Ever since Carly left, I have been less psyched about idol (good thing I still have Cook). However, Idolatry has TOTALLY kept up my enthusiasm. In fact, I comforted myself when Carly left, b/c I would get to see her on Idolatry. What I am going to do without Slezak and co!!?!
