DialIdol projects that 16 of the 20 semi-finalists are at risk tonight

Tonight, 16 of the 20 American Idol 6 semi-finalists are at risk for elimination, according to projections by DialIdol.

The site, which allows users to download a dialing application and then uses vote calls through the application to project winners and losers, says that everyone except Melinda Doolittle, Sundance Head, LaKisha Jones, and Sanjaya Malakar are at risk.

Last week, nearly the same thing was true, which seems to confirm that viewers are quite divided over who’s the most boring. And even though there are four semi-finalists in the lead, they don’t have commanding leads over each other or the rest of the contestants.

So far, it’s anybody’s game, perhaps because viewers just can’t find a reason to care quite yet.

Marriage At First Sight

In an era of Tinder and Grindr, instant acceptance or dismissal of a potential partner, or instant sex with another body, Married at First Sight offers the thrill of watching strangers deal with the very basics of relationships.

Beyond the headline-grabbing premise, the series has turned out to be a stripped-down, authentic exploration of something very interesting. Read the full review.
