It is always sad to watch contenders dismissed at this point in “American Idol” since each person in the Top 10 is a talented individual. But after seeing each being saved by a judge last week, it felt more hurtful as Uche’, who perhaps should have picked a song from anything but “A Goofy Movie,” and Dimitrius Graham, who seemed to pin his hopes on that last note of “You’ll Be in My Heart,” were let go in the final seconds of Sunday’s show.
One can understand why Lionel Richie, Katy Perry and Luke Bryan would withhold saving them again, since they already gave them a second chance. But with such a top-notch Top 8, you could see why they wanted to keep the save in their pocket for later.
But the show provided a glimpse of Uche’ and Dimitrius in happier times as they join Alejandro Aranda, Laci Kaye Booth, Walker Burroughs, Wade Cota, Laine Hardy, Alyssa Raghu and Madison VanDenburg in guessing a Disney song title from a string of emojis.
Judging by the video, Wade and Walker have watched way too many Disney films or at least listened to the soundtracks because they seem to be the best at figuring out the clues. Madison does herself proud when she nails Frozen’s “Love Is an Open Door.” Meanwhile, Alejandro mistakes one of the House of Mouse’s best-known golden oldies as either “Music Man” or “Candy Man” Dimitrius gets stumped as he throws out “The Devil Wears Prada.” And Uche’ isn’t the only one to think there is a Disney song titled “Spoon Candy.”
