Ok look, some of you might be surprised that Burnell was on the chopping block. And I was surprised how much of Twitter was fighting for him to stay over Janelle. #AreYouSeriousWorld
Buttttt! Let’s talk about what was really upsetting about the entire evening… Lazaro Arbos is in the Top 3.
This was just straight up disappointing on so many levels. Yes Burnell deserved to be in the bottom 3. But to even consider Candice/Amber/Janelle for the bottom 3 when Lazaro is still a contestant? Unthinkable. I did some research though and you wanna know something crazy? If you look at the twitter followers, there’s actually a correlation between the Top 3/overall standings, and the number of twitter followers.
Besides Burnell leaving, I mean, it practically spells out the placement of the contestants. And to see Lazaro is SECOND in twitter followers? I mean come on? How is that possible. I can’t tell you how many different versions of “Mrs.Arbos” twitter handles exist. But the fact of the matter is, the people on twitter with the handles, those are the voters! And they’re the one putting Mr. Balki in the Top 3, much to the chagrin of the free thinking non-twitter world. There were just as many people hating on twitter as there were people loving on him. I prefer to focus on the haters because in this scenario, they are my people.
I had to include the hate that also included shout outs to Olivia Pope and Associates. Hilarious. Seriously, do you guys watch that show because man, talk about something you want to talk for HOURS about!! Sheesh! I mean, this is some Defiance Shizz if I’ve ever seen it. Alas. We can only hope that Lazaro goes home next week. And if not, at least the judges still have their save. Lord knows they’ll use it until they can’t anymore as long as Lazaro is still in the game! You can’t have a guy that never remembers lyrics, in the Top 05. That’s just straight up UNACCEPTABLE. Make it right, America!
Now, as for the standings, well, congratulations to bottom dweller Rene and her momma Kathy! They were in the top this week picking the Bottom 3 perfectly. Unfortunately they’re still mostly in the bottom over all, but a win for the week is a win for the week so take your week for some bragging rights! You deserve it! Suz and Bob, congratulations on still mastering the overall scores!
As for the Top 6, it seems the theme will be The Burt Bacharach-Hal David Song Book & A Song They Wish They Had Written. I bet Laz wishes he’d written Bridge Over Troubled Water. What are the odds he tries that for a 3rd time?
