It was Movies Night on "Duets" this Wednesday, but there was no happy fairytale ending for Team Kelly Clarkson, when both of Kelly's contestants ended up in the bottom two and had to emotionally battle each other for a spot in next week's first live show of the season. That spot ended up going to Jason Farol, leaving Kelly's other contestant, Jordan Meredith, as the odd (and very, very sad) woman out.
While I personally wasn't that sad--I never thought Jordan quite rebounded after her shaky opening night, when she was in the bottom two with Jason for the first time--I still didn't think she was the worst contestant of the remaining six. That non-honor has always gone to Robin Thicke's contestant, the weak and whispery Olivia Chisholm. I can only speculate that the reason Olivia has survived each week, outlasting some undeniably stronger singers, is because the scoring system on this show--which so far has been entirely controlled by the judges, who obviously have their own agendas--is totally wack. It'll sure be interesting to see how the leaderboard order changes next week, when the public finally gets a chance to vote.
