Melinda Doolittle went home tonight on American Idol, leaving Blake and Jordin to fight it out next week. (Musically speaking) I wanted Blake and Melinda in the finals. Jordin is talented and beautiful but Melinda is absolutely fantastic.

I am shocked. I didn’t expect this outcome at all.

I think Blake may end up winning because he is really talented, telegenic, cute and a natural. My favorite musical rendition he’s done so far is Mack the Knife. He’s taken every song he has sung so far and made it his own.

Jordin’s run has been much more spotty. I didn’t care for any of the songs she sang last night and think she needs to mature a little more before she is cast into the spotlight.

I hope we will be seeing a lot more of Melinda Doolittle. She really is a class act.
