American Idol-Survivor: Farewell, Alexis


March 19, 2009.

Paying tribute to the Grand Ole Opry, the American Idol Survivors went country sounds. Michael Sarver did the first performance with a harmonica player and officially started the show. But judge Simon Cowell didn’t give him good feedback. Surprisingly, the three remaining members of the Wild Card – Megan Joy Corkrey, Matt Giraud and Anoop Desai – brought the house down; so did Danny Gokey. Lil Rounds who’s clearly not a country singer, had mixed reactions. Lastly, Alexis Grace‘s feedback brought her down to the bottom 3 and in the end she was sent home, even after the judges talked about helping her back in the competition as she sings her last performance.

Alexis Grace wasn’t able to prevent the flame from burning her down. A great talent, but perhaps not enough for America to vote for her.

“Unlike Lil or Matt or Megan, Alexis didn’t start out as a favorite for me. In fact, I don’t remember seeing her audition. It was only during the selection for Top 36 that I heard her voice and went “Whoa. This lady can sing.” Then after seeing and hearing her first Top 36 performance, I knew she can pull her way up. Though I suppose this year wasn’t the right time for her.”

Now, only 7 remains (while the Idol Survivor threats are still standing)…
