Zeibiz: @AmericanIdol Judges Give Thumbs Down to Filipino American Contestant

Adriana LatonioIt was a bad night for Adriana Latonio on American Idol. The Filipino American contestant from Alaska is one of ten women contestants left on the show.

Last night she competed against all ten of them, and five will be eliminated based on voting from fans.

If viewers listen to the judges, Latonio is in danger of being eliminated, reported Zeibiz,

Latonio sang Stand Up for Love by Destiny’s Child. Her booming voice shined through during the closing notes, but judge’s felt it took too long to get to that moment.

Judge Nicki Minaj said bluntly “Work a little bit and come back next year. It was pageanty.”

Randy Jackson agreed.   “It was very safe, you needed to slay it. You were boring.”

Fans don’t always listen to the judges so her elimination is not a sure thing. But with the competition tightening and most of the other performances earning praise from the judges, her odds of staying on the show are long.

    Just remember that last season's FilAm Idol contestant Jessica Sanchez was voted off. After the judges saved her, she went on to be in the top 2, almost clinching the title!

  2. I forgot that happened, but you're right.
