Shock Eliminations 2011-2012 – The Voice vs. American Idol vs. The X Factor – Poll
Some of the more shocking results of the current reality TV singing competition season happened over the past two weeks.
On The Voice, Christina Aguilera got rid of her best vocalist in Jesse Campbell during the instant elimination on Monday. And Blake Shelton not only got rid of his best vocalist in Jordis Unga, he did not save his country prodigy RaeLynn this week.
So how shocking are these results anyway? Though, American Idol has set the standard for shock eliminations in it’s 11 season history, the gold standard for a shock elimination was set just a few months ago on The X Factor. Rachel Crow’s elimination to me is the most shocking result of all time, and was brilliantly orchestrated by Simon Cowell’s staff.
So let’s put it to a vote: What has been the most shocking result so far this season? Take the poll!

Watched all the "eliminations", but it's gotta be Jessica's the "MOST SHOCKING". That Rachel Crow was so dramatic. I didn't even know Simon Cowell still exists in "singing contest", haha.
I guess every negative comment towards rickey or another commenter in this page wasn't written in clear mind and I have in same position as rickey as well.
I'm not try to read what's in rickey's mind when this argument happen, but if you tell me when what i write it's clearly not favorite jessica and someone keep saying combination words of why-you-not-like-jessica, that someone clearly needs to be punched for not read the situation. If you not disagree, you can tell that you disagree with rickey, not questioning [means that you not read the whole article?] or even bashing him for not disagree with you.
For Filipino's voter, there's nothing wrong with them. It's just wrong if the votes keep monopolize any polls (with actual data of course). Their votes not cover everyone opinion about the polls, because whatever reasons MAJORITY OF THEIR VOTES absolutely support Jessica in every way. You can't deny that - And for those who says they're not filipino who vote jessica - if you're comment not supportive > it's doesn't make you right.
For Jessica, I admit she is a great singer. Point plus from her is her long term professionalism in singing which i think not everyone knows this and maybe the reason why not few people dislike her much in this kind of competition (whatever it means compare with another contestants or the other things).
It can't be "shock" elimination if it's orchestrated by the judge/show/mentor. It can only be shock if the America voted them off.
Lols I had to pull out the popcorn for this thread. haha Yes Rickey, Rachel Crow's elimination was the MOST shocking and it was also the most dramatic. :) LOVED every minute of it.
I do not get the love for Jordis Unga on The Voice. I've watched her performances on Rockstar and it seems like what we got on The Voice was just a former shell of Jordis. I disagreed with Blake when he saved Jordis. Her performance of Wild Horses was lacking spark and she forgot the words to a very popular song on her first night out. I voted for Rachel Crowe because no one expected Marcus to go higher than any of the other contestants save for the Groups category. From her first audition, Rachel wowed everyone but Marcus didn't really do much to spark interest. Not to mention the outrage that followed and the boos Nicole received was TV gold!
Just in case any of you forgot the amazingness of Rachel's elimination: http://youtu.be/LbWBrlT1NBA
It was pure chaos! Nicole just basically collapses, hahahaha.
Of all time? Now you're just mocking us -_____-; None of these results were shocking this year. Anyone who expected Rachel to go further than the top 4 was kidding themselves, let alone winning which was just an out and out impossibility. We all expected Jessica to get Pia'ed (I know everyone said that it was Hollie who would go that route but as soon as she hit her rough patch it was obvious that she was going to go the way of Carly Smithson, something I've been saying for weeks now where she would falter and then make a huge comeback and get voted off in 6th place. I still hope against it and that we get an all female final four but whatev's).
As for Colton, we all SUSPECTED that he had momentum but no one really ever believed he was going to make top 2. A lot of opinions out there that I've read personally have all started off with, "He could make the finale! He might even be able to win the whole thing!" To which I say, "Well, if Philip got voted off last Thursday, THAT would be a shocker.
Last but not least we have "The Voice".
I. Don't. Care.
Why no Joris Unga for a shocker, Rickey? Jesse Campbell was good but he was just a copycat of Javier Colon as is Jermaine, IMO!
Yeah, and I just noticed every review you're making ur keep on giving negative comments to Jessica Sanchez even though she had a great night. That's unfair dude.
@IdleTime Rachel Crow wasn't shock elimination. It's just shocking watching the whole ordeal happening on TV. With Nicole's chickened out,didn't want to decide who to save. Thus,Rachel eliminated over Marcus.
@takakupo Good point, some of these eliminations were not shocking enough to use the phrase "of all time." What about classic shock eliminations like Chris Daughtry and Jennifer Hudson? These were way more shocking than Jordis, Raelynn, Colton, and even Jessica. Rachel's was a big surprise but was more dramatic than shocking. At this point, after all these years of Idol, aren't we all a bit desensitized to "shock eliminations"? We practically sense them coming on, as with Jessica.
@aquayers I still laugh at those boos.
@Ghoutry I kinda agree. The reason I was more shocked more with Jessica, and even Coton, was because I stopped watching X-Factor and was more involved in this season's Idol than X-Factor, but when I heard about Rachel. I watched it later. I will say it was the most 'unsettling' elimination.
@Ghoutry Agreed. Drama seems to follow Simon Cowell where ever he goes. Either Rachel, or Astro's 1st Elimination. How he refused to perform and all. Gotta say, I enjoyed that episode. a lot
@NickTan AS I SAID, I'M ONLY LOOKING AT THE RESULTS FROM THE "COUNTRY OF ORIGIN" THAT POLLDADDY IS GIVING ME. SHEESH.
OK THAT'S IT. EVERYONE CAN JUST GO AWAY. NO MORE OF THIS. LOOK FOR YOUR STUFF ELSEWHERE.
I mean really Rickey, why do you act surprised? ! You knew exactly what would happen, and then you act all shocked. You need help!
@Rickey not really, i'm vote for Jessica too : )
Im Not Filipino (Or anywhere near the Philippines for that matter) , but I'm Voting J-San. Rachel Crow's Elimination did not surprise me at all. During the live-show she never quite hit the level of brilliance of 'If I Were a Boy' and 'Mercy'. She finished 5th Just below Marcus Canty and she probably only deserved to finish 4th, Because Josh, Melanie and Chris Rene all did better than her during the Live Shows.
Jessica on the other hand gave what was the best Vocal of the Night in 'Stuttering', Showed emotion for the 1st time and ticked all the right boxes and yet still failed to get more votes than the Hollie Train Wreck?? No Matter how much you dislike Bebe Chez, I dont think there has been anything more shocking than that anywhere this season anywhere especially given the kind of Hype (Bookies, Bloggers, and Punters Favorite to win) that was surrounding her before that Near-elimination.
Jesse Campbell was easily 2nd for, me. He was the best freaking vocalist on the whole show and still got cut. He would have been number 1 in my Book if it was America that cut him but since it was Those Stupid Judges that cut him, I'm not as startled as I am with Bebe Chez's Cut.
You could do another poll which includes people who were 'KICKED OFF' that doesn't include people still participating on their shows. It would still make the poll legit.
Yeah it was kinda rude so i deleted it. But you have to scroll down and read rickeys comment. Its too racist. Cmon! We are all human and im mixed race. And as much as i want to respect everybodys opinion rickeys statement was just to distasteful. You dont choose your color, God chose that for you and it doesnt make you a better person or a lesser man than others we are all brothers in this tiny planet we inhabit.
@Mikhail XO Lol, didn't we agree?
@Rickey Rickey, What im talking about is most of your reviews/post here, is you're bashing Jessica, duh. You're desperately looking for something to criticize her. Before I was just thinking you just didnt like some of Jessica's performances but noticed your every single reviews you posted here, you have negative comments towards her even though her performance is great, you're always on the other side. Whats with Jessica you dont really like? C'mon stop hating her, be fair enough ur a blogger/ giving reviews, you know many people visit internet and can read your post. If you like Philip go support Philip but stop hating dude.
You said about the filipinos are over taking the votes. Thats my last straw, I need to create a profile here and say my grievances to you (now i did it. yay). So what if filipinos are voting for Jessica in your poll? is it that good many visit your site.
After the show I always make sure to read some reviews in Internet, but you're the only one who consistently saying not so good reviews towards her.
@Mikhail XO @Rickey You have to realize mr Mikhai that not every single person on earth will agree to you. we have our own opinions, but we should respect that, but if your Abusing it then i guess conflict and debate starts.. and for sure Jessica is not going home anytime soon. Shes the real deal. FYI, I dont hate, Im not hating you, i dont know you. im just airing my side. You're saying you want jessica kick off again, so your the one who's hating.. em i right??
@Mikhail XO I gotta ask, Do you want Jessica Out because of Jess, or because of her Fans?
@Lombe Well I am only basing my comment on actual data not the results of the poll. I can see that all the votes for Jessica are from the Philippines and ZERO from the USA. That is all.
@Rickey I erased my comment earlier cuz i dont wanna discriminate. And i guess youre right about the poll thing but im not sure till i see the real tally otherwise it would sound racist.
@ArchieSue i love all the contestants their all diff from each other id be happy for whom ever wins this contest their all diserving! So i guess just be more Diligent than filipinos wc ever race you are in and vote for your favorite. Im saying this in general.
@Lestermchester I will post the results tomorrow and write something about how this can come across as racist which I recognize but that's not what I'm getting at. It will probably look a bit better with "charts".
I'm just sick and tired of getting attacked just because I am not seen as supporting a favorite and "specially since" I am Filipino. It's really a more complicated issue because of that.
@Lestermchester That wasn't the point. lols He was saying the polls won't be accurate because the majority of the Phil fans will vote for Jess like crazy on every single poll with her name on it here. The polls make her look popular but in actuality she wasn't that popular to the US audience because she was voted off last week. Plus she is from Cali and statistically people from Cali usually don't give a crap on voting for idol contestants. It's better to be from a small town in the South, lols. Of course Katphee made it to the finale, which was rare and still lost. Anyway that's the point. :)
@seriouslywhatever You're still an idiot.
Uh, that's so not nice. I want you to apologize now! WAAAAAAAH!!!! Big fat meanie!!!!!! Like, seriously, whatever! Love, seriouslywhatever
@seriouslywhatever You're an idiot.
So why don't you just shut down your blog. I think you literally attract the Filipino traffic b/c of your commentary against Jessica. It's like you do it on purpose. And then all this responding here, like you need therapy, I think the posters here just want to help you. Like I want to help you. You need help, or you need to shut the blog down. WHether or not you know it, Rickey, you are very passive aggressive, it's like a cry for help. And you'll never admit it, b/c you haven't gotten to that stage, but I think you need some kind of help. You keep saying you are being attacked for nothing, but you are the one who is being so passive aggressive. Even this poll. Did you not think for a second how people would respond? You knew very well that most people would pick Jessica Sanchez's elimination, yet you still posted it. YOu were asking for trouble, in fact inviting it. And you don't even know it, or you won't acknowledge it. You need help!
@NickTan dude, not everyone loves Jessica as much as you do; is she good yes but not even close to my favorite! There are a million voices out there like hers, nothing orginal.
@NickTan YES THAT WAS A STATEMENT OF FACT, NOT AN ATTACK. I CAN READ.
AND NO, IT'S NOT GOOD BECAUSE I AM NOT RUNNING A FILIPINO BLOG. I EARN NOTHING FROM TRAFFIC FROM THE PHILIPPINES. IT'S NOT WORTH THE EFFORT. SERIOUSLY. ANYONE WHO RUNS A WEBSITE IN THE USA (OR THE PHILIPPINES FOR THAT MATTER) WILL TELL YOU THIS.
TRAFFIC FROM THE PHILIPPINES IS LITERALLY WORTHLESS. I WAS HOPING TO GET AT LEAST SOME GOODWILL, BUT SINCE I'M NOT GETTING ANY OF THAT ALL AND GETTING ATTACKED ON RANDOM POSTS - FORGET IT. IT'S OVER.
@Rickey "You said about the filipinos are over taking the votes. Thats my last straw, I need to create a profile here and say my grievances to you (now i did it. yay). So what if filipinos are voting for Jessica in your poll? is it that good many visit your site. " dude read my comments properly, okay?
@NickTan "Yeah, and I just noticed every review you're making ur keep on giving negative comments to Jessica Sanchez even though she had a great night. That's unfair dude."
I POSTED A POLL! SINCE WHEN WAS THAT AN AUTOMATIC ATTACK ON JESSICA SANCHEZ?
BUT IT'S OVER NOW SO DON'T ANSWER. NO MORE OF THIS NONSENSE FOR ME.
@Rickey Abuse?! We're/I'm abusing you? You have to realize this before you start your blog site, that not every single person will like your post/reviews. Im just airing my side on how I interpret or understand your blogs. I dont hate and I dont know you. but everybody is entitled with their opinions.
@NickTan WELL IT'S OVER. I'M NOT GOING TO PUT UP WITH THIS ABUSE ANYMORE.
@Rickey hope you're not banning IP addresses from the Philippines cause you might be banning a lot of other commenters. Internet in the Philippines sucks and we rarely use static IPs. My IP address now might become another commenter's IP address tomorrow. :D
@rtee Well it's pretty much over now. I'm not going to deal with this anymore.
@Rickey Calm down Rickey dear. It's obviously every nega comment about Jessica is considered "attacking" to her fans. And yes, I believe you're not fair with her fans in your blog.
I Realized at once the point of your post, Hence I dont make any personal attacks on you and instead respond to your posts or any facts you
state with facts of my own.
It was not just a response to your traffic fact. It was a response to the article as a whole and all the content you put in YOUR article.
I Know you are not attacking Jess, (Like you did in last week's controversial article.) And even if you decide to attack Jess, no one has the right to stop you as that's your opinion and you are entitled to your opinion especially on your blog..
@Lombe @Mikhail XO YEAH BUT THAT'S NOT THE POINT. THE POINT WAS THERE AN UNUSUALLY HIGH VOTE COMING FROM THE PHILIPPINES AND AGAIN VOTING FOR JESSICA. THAT'S IT. I'M NOT ATTACKING JESSICA, I'M NOT ATTACKING THE FANS. I'M JUST STATING FACTS. YOU CAN VOTE FOR JESSICA ALL YOU WANT, I DON'T CARE. BUT I AM NOT GOING TO SIT HERE AND TAKE THIS ABUSE ANYMORE. I AM NOT ATTACKING ANYONE.
@Mikhail XO @Rickey Wow,!! Dont confuse my comment with the Comment at the Top, My Comment was based entirely on the content of this article.. I.E The Surprise element in each Elimination. All I did was give my opinion of which Elimination, I found more shocking and Simply respond to your observation of a 100% Pinoy vote, by stating that, I'm neither Pinoy or In the Phillipines but I voted for Jess. Check the exchanges again dude!
@Lombe IT'S OVER. NO MORE OF THIS.
I HAVE BEEN NOTHING BUT NICE AND ACCOMMODATING TO EVERYBODY AND FAIR. I AM NOT GOING TO BE ATTACKED LIKE THIS ANYMORE.
@Rickey I Dont know*
@Rickey Oh no!! I totally get your comment 100%. Just stating what I thought.. Not sure if you agree with what I'm Saying.
I really hope, that all the International Love Jessica is receiving isn't turning off American Voters. Its would be a tragedy, if that was the reason she failed to win. I dont but it kind of SEEMS to be turning you off, when it comes to her !
