Call me cold, but I’m not going to miss Jessica walking onto the American Idol stage to do her thing. It’s akin to my dislike of Ashthon Jones from last season … but the difference is Jessica can actually sing.
Wait … WHAT … ?!??! What are you talking about Michael? Because last time I checked it was Joshua who was eliminated from the Top 3 on Idol, not Jessica.
