American Idol 5 Top 8
Was anyone else not surprised by the bottom three this week? Mandisa (African-American), Paris Bennett (African-American)and Elliot Yamin (Jewish-American). As Kia so poignantly expressed, "Isn’t it funny that tonight’s bottom three consisted of the three ethnic contestants? America don’t like those ethnics singing their sacred country music. Racists." Ha ha ha. Power-house Mandisa got the boot last night, if you missed it. Above clockwise from bottom left: Ace Young, Chris Daughtry, Taylor Hicks, Paris Bennett, Bucky Covington, Kellie Pickler, Katherine McPhee and Elliott Yamin.
