American Idol’s Randy Jackson recently held an interview with some guy named Ryan Seacrest over yonder at E!News, and told Ryan that because of the controversial elimination of Pia Toscano a couple weeks ago, that the show could use more ‘saves’ for the judges to use. Randy said “We might need to have, in the top 13, one save, and then in the top 10—up to the top five, another save, because I felt that Pia was starting to hit her stride…I think we have to come up with some sort of system – because what we want, ultimately, Ryan, is a duel to the finish. The two best ones to be there at the end, duke-ing it out. We had that at the end with Clay and Ruben, we’ve had that a couple of times, but we haven’t had that every time, you know? If it comes down to the two guys I think it’ll come down to, it’ll be a fight to the finish, and a great fight of the finish. We need that kind of end, you know what I mean? Oh my god.”
More saves? I personally feel that there are too many already. If America doesn’t pick up the phone for someone, well, then their journey should be over. I wasn’t completely happy with the ‘saves’ or choices I guess they are called, of the last 3 contestants to enter the top 13. I mean, I agreed on a couple of them, one most defintely not. To me, if they want to add yet another save, then take away their picks for the top 12, and use that for a later save.
Many also have expressed anger over them using it on Casey, when they could have saved it for Pia. Well, I was actually happy they used it on him. It all comes down to taste I guess.
What do you think? Should the judges have more saves or do you think they have one too many already? Will they petition for even more saves the year after that? Wouldn’t that make the show go on forever? Also, he mentions he thinks it will come down to two boys. Which two do you think he is referring to, and do you agree that is who it should come down to?
