Lazaro Arbos Eliminated on ‘American Idol’
On tonight’s (April 11) results episode of ‘American Idol,’ Lazaro Arbos was at risk of going home, since he turned in two not very good peformances last night, singing out of key and delivering what show mentor Jimmy Iovine called “an Ambien milkshake.” Translation: It was boring and put him to sleep. The judges didn’t use their sole save of the season on Arbos and he was thus eliminated.
For his save song, the singer, who battles a stutter but sings like a mother effer, performed ‘Feeling Good,’ which was pretty flawless and reminded us why the American public kept voting to keep him around each week when Iovine was consistently predicting that it was time to go home.
But it wasn’t enough for the judges to throw the save out there for him. So with Arbos’ elimination, we are left with a Top 5 and it’s comprised of all females. That means that a girl will be crowned the Season 12 winner. There has not been a female winner of ‘Idol’ since Season 6’s Jordin Sparks, so it’s high time a lady takes the crown and carries on the tradition of Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Fantasia Barrino and Sparks.
Good luck to the Top 5 — Janelle Arthur, Candice Glover, Kree Harrison, Amber Holcomb and Angie Miller. Girls rule!
But we will miss Lazaro Arbos. He was and remains an inspiration.
