Much as it pains me to write this post...
You set yourself up for it honey. Dixie Chicks are cool (especially because of their anti-George Bush stance). Dolly is a legend.
Even though I still voted for you, because you're a top bird and one of the rare auditionees at the Seymour Centre that week, who actually bothered to talk to us (and apologise if you were disturbing our work day), you shot yourself in the foot by singing Shania Twain.
Kenny Rogers would have been preferable to Shania. Hell, even singing a Keith Urban number might have scored you more votes.
I'm really sorry to see you go and I hope you continue performing. Release an album of Dixie & Dolly and I'll buy it for sure. Just don't put Shania on there. She's painful to the ear.
Before I go however, I must say one thing. OK, three things.
1. It astonishes me that Sideshow Bobby dodged a bullet this week. He should've at least been in the bottom 3. Bad song choice, bad performance. So he's missing his family. Well cry me a freakin' river Bob. You're there to perform. So perform.
2. Mutto. Yes he was sick, but if you're sick you work with what you can do and try not to go for the high notes. He must leave. Soon.
3. CAN WE PLEASE JUST GET RID OF LISA-THE-ONE-TRICK-PONY???
That is all.
