Why It's Lil or No One Going Home

American Idol 8 is at an important juncture. There is one contestant in the top 7 who clearly doesn't belong anymore (Lil Rounds), and everyone else is, at the very least, a competent performer. The Judges' Save has yet to be used and, if it is to be used at all, it has to be in the next two weeks. If Lil Rounds advances much further, it will be a grand travesty. Even the judges, who began the season preaching the Gospel of Lil, are now off the train and very obviously want her off the show. Which leads us to the very interesting part of tonight's American Idol Results Show - there's a very good chance that the Save will be used on anyone not named Lil Rounds. If the judges want to be fair, that's how they should approach tonight's American Idol. Unfortunately, fairness and American Idol are rarely synonymous.
