Sadly, Carly Smithson was voted off American Idol Tonight. I was a little bummed out by this one. I mean Michael Johns going early was surprising, but Carly gave one of her best performances last night. She had been suffering from trying really hard to impress and last night, she just put her heart in it and laid it out. I was betting that Jason Castro was going home. His laid back musical style can only go so far in my book, but he's now in the Top 5 and Carly is out. I really thought that Carly would be the last woman standing. My money is on David Cook this year, because he's so versatile and always delivers a great performance. He's had 3 outstanding performances so far this season. "Hello", "Billie Jean" and "Always Be My Baby". His "Music of the Night" wasn't bad last night either. I guess you can't count out the little David Archuletta either, but I'm pulling for David Cook. Oh well, I'll write more about Idol another time, but please enjoy this performance by Carly, since we won't be seeing her anymore this season. I think she'll be back with a record at some point and I'll pick it up.
