There aren't going to be too many shockers in the early stages of this Top 12. That's because, as much as I hate to say it, the girls are, indeed, proving to be the weaker sex in this tenth season of 'American Idol.'
While the little 'Idol' elves counted up all the Facebook and phone votes, it was clear well before tonight's elimination episode that Karen Rodriguez, Haley Reinhart and Naima Adedapo were in danger.
In the end, it was K-Rod peacing out from the Top 12. But that only means that the next few weeks will continue the all-girl parade of 'Idol' executions, featuring Haley, Naima and Thia, in that order, if the ladies don't get it together with a quickness.
