American Idols fans were shocked to see Pia Toscano eliminated from the competition last week but will they be just as surprised when they learn who was casted off the show tonight?
If you’re wondering who’s the latest contestant to face elimination, you may be surprised to find out that Paul McDonald is no longer in the running to be your American Idol 2011.
The always-positive singer – who sounded almost identical to Rod Stewart – was one of my personal favorites from the beginning.
He didn’t have quite as much personality and spunk as some of the other contestants this year (like Lauren Alaina or Casey Abrams) but he had a quiet presence that I, for one, took a particular liking to.
As he departed from the show, JLo gave him one last request: to sing Maggie May for the crowd one more time.
His send-off song was sung in perfect tune with the upbeat attitude I know many will miss.
While tonight’s elimination isn’t quite as shocking as last week’s, it’s still heartbreaking for some of us who really adored Paul.
Here’s hoping he gets a record contract too!
Do you think Paul deserved to be eliminated tonight?
