Dennis Lorenzo Feels He Was Unfairly Eliminated From ‘American Idol’
This week Dennis Lorenzo’s American Idol journey came to an end when he was voted off the show. You will recall that for the first time Idol had live voting with the results announced at the end of the show. This is what Dennis believes the problem was since he went last. He believes people didn’t have time to vote for him.
I definitely see his point. Usually, performing last is a good thing because it’s the last thing people see. But that’s when you have 24 hours to vote. I get that. However, I don’t think that was why Dennis was eliminated. Look, Dennis is a great singer and I’ve enjoyed his performances. But the fact of the matter is that he had to be saved the previous week by the judges because he was in the bottom. So clearly America just wasn’t feeling him even when they did have 24 hours to vote. And that’s not all.
We use math and science to figure out who will be in what order and for the most part we are right. One thing that really hurt Dennis was that by far among the last few contestants he had the least amount of followers…BY A LOT. As Mel can tell you, if you don’t have your social media game on point you are not going to win. There is just no way.
I realize that he must be disappointed, I get that. It’s easy to look for someone or something to blame. For him it was the way the voting was set up for fans of Ada Vox it was the fact that she was LGBTQ. But if you stop and really think about it, at least in the case of Dennis, it was just his time to go.
