Going First On American Idol

For years now I have been outspoken about how contestants who go first on American Idol stand a way better chance to get put in the bottom three or voted off. Time and time again I have noticed this and have brought it up in AI conversations. However, not until yesterday, did I find out I wasn't alone when Trisha (my big sis) emailed me the following article:

'Idol' singers who sing first may not last

I have been meaning to write about this for a couple of weeks - when Michael Johns got ousted that night after leading off the show. However, due to the fact that making it an interesting post would take a lot of research I was too lazy to do, it never happened. Now that I have this article to back my claim and do the research for me, I wanted to make sure you all are well aware.

Who will go first tonight? Will they be victimized by going first like so many have in the past? Chances are if they are a "bubble" contestant it could be what sends them home packing. Also, don't be surprised to see even a front runner show up in the bottom three if he or she led off the show the night before. Simon says it's all about song choice. You could argue it has more to do with the lineup.

Enjoy the article!
