Aww…i will miss him..and can’t wait his album, hopefully really soon. To me only reason to watch AI anymore is David Cook.

# 2

Ryan is an a s s hole. Remember when the ripped Kathy Griffin’s shirt on stage at AMA 05.

I miss him already!! Although I dont think he would have won I wanted him around longer to get more exposure! He is far more talented than some of the people left! Hopefully he gets a record deal sooooon!!! Hes the only artist I would buy an album from :)

# 4

So sad. I thought he had a shot to win the whole thing. He was one of the best singers on the show. Oh well, hope there is truth to the saying “Everything happens for a reason.”

# 5

Thanks Jared! Michael Johns was the best and will have a brilliant career!

The problem again with idol, vote for who you want to stay, right? Well if your a fan, of lets says Kristy Lee Cook and you are worried she will go, so you put all your votes towards her. Makes easy sense. Well if your a fan of Michal Johns and Kristy Lee Cook, the majority of your votes would most likely again go to Kristy, because you think oh Michael is safe, he doesn’t need help, others will vote for him, lets save the others. And this is how people end up going home. Or the producer’s decide who isn’t right for the show anymore and that the show needs some drama and discussion. The other conclusion is, hey its IDOLS GIVE BACK week, nobody goes home during this week, so I am not going to waste my time voting. Pointless right, I mean nobody went home last year, and were wrong. Idol stick to the script and quit messing with viewers, and viewers, never think anyone is safe, examples, Daughtry & Jen Hudson. You gotta vote for everyone with there stupid system. They should start voting for who should go home, however, people would pile it on one person, to keep their favorites around. But maybe allow, only a certain number of votes per person. Maybe one text, one call, one on-line vote, or some sort of system to make it fair if that is possible, people who probably find away around it or hack it, but something should be done. I mean if people are good enough, they will get deals, and I think he will, but this really hurts some people I think.

He has many wannabe wives out there —

If someone sang like this to me…
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ptwtwbxtytk
— his wife is one lucky lady. He seems sweet, nice, down to earth, good looking the whole package.

I am still SOO depressed and cannot believe he is gone.

Two things I know for sure, I won’t be watching Idol ever again and we have not seen the last of Michael Johns.

Let the backlash begin!

Over at the Idol boards they have posted information on how to protest what went down last night, let them know the crap that Ryan pulled was horrible.

Awwwwwwwww man, I love this guy. I’m so bummed. He sang his heart out at the end last night. Hopefully he’ll be the next Daughtry. He’s got a rock sound and he’s sexy, not AI material anyway. He doesn’t need them.
As for Ryan Seacrest, what a douche. That was completely f’d up and cruel. :(

# 9

This was a total shocker. I don’t think anyone was expecting his elimination so soon. I’m bummed ’cause he was in my Top 3 favorites! :o(

ERRRRR, thanks jared, as much as i love your website and am an avid watcher of AI, the elimination show is not aired in the UK until this evening, and although you made a post eariler today and hid who was eliminated under a cut you have now told me who was eliminated on this posting and now ruined the fun, thanks. please dont do this again.

Not fair. I’ll miss him

i dont watch, but i flipped the channel once and heard him talk and his accent (and his actual physical feature) is HOT!!!

btw, seacrest is a douche…always has been. if you listen to his radio station some of the things he says is so rude and annoying i wanted to smack him. but fortunately for me i started listening to kroq where they bash him every chance they get.

Where the f*ck are these biatches getting people to vote for them?!? It’s BEYOND FRIGGIN CLEAR that the guys are waaaaaaay better than the girls. This was just ridiculous!!

no thanks @ 04/11/2008 at 1:16 pm

The show is set up for David Archulata to win.

# 14 so true…

oh my…he’s my favourite this season, though I think he’s probably not gonna be the winner but ….
SAD SAD SAD… so sad watching his elimination video.

I picked him in my top 4. The guys are much better than the women this season. This was the most shocking elimination ever, imo. Carly, Syesha and Brooke were the worst this week. I wonder if there is rigging going on. I am convinced the judges, at least Simon, knows who is going home before the show. Hopefully Michael will get a deal and go on to have great success.

No matter what, I still love him, he is very good singer and very nice guy like Simon said…and very handsome too…. For sure i will buy his record and i am sure he will be success …good luck for him and …love you Michael Johns….you are my idol…..!!!

disagree with #14 and #15
i say: the show is trying to make us think that everything is set up for David Archuleta to win, but in fact the show is set up for david cook to win……..

AMERICA IS OUTRAGED!!!
LET’S LET IDOL KNOW!!
Two things:
The way Ryan treated Michael Johns
Possible problem with the voting.
America is outraged. It’s time to have a voice.

Here is a few email addresses to flood their mailboxes full of how upset we all are.
These aer real addresses… I even got a reply saying they would get back to me!

stevo@prospero.com
idolpr@fox.com
askfox@fox.com

Come on Amercia……
You have a voice!

Micheal Johns is hot @ 04/11/2008 at 2:29 pm

He was the BEST! I loved him! It makes me so sad to think that I won’t be able to tune into AI each week and see him! I had the entire package! America got it WRONG!!!

My favorite contestant is gone:-( Does anyone know if his wife is American or Australian?

PLEASE WRITE THE PRODUCERS AT AMERICAN IDOL AND COMPLAIN! They DO read the emails, and the fans HAVE made a difference before

askfox@fox.com

Ryan@eonline.com

Ryan@kiisfm.com

Ryan Seacrest is CRUEL! What he did last night to Michael Johns totally crossed the line. There is no excuse for his behavior and he owes Michael Johns a public apology. They also should bring back the Wildcard setup in this case. Let him come back one night to sing,and if he doesn’t get the top scores the next time, he’ll be permanently eliminated.

bye aussie man. :(

he was SOO good!
