    Default American Idol recount: Only 100,000 voters separate finalists

    American Idol Recount: Only 100,000 Voters Separate Finalists By Lynda Johnson
    May 18, 2006
    Elliott Yamin was eliminated from American Idol on Wednesday night. But the man with the tremendous pipes didn't go down quietly. He came in third in the contest, but the vote was very close, with barely 100,000 votes separating third from second.
    Only 100,000 Votes More...
    The numbers are astoundingly close.
    Over fifty million votes were cast Elliott received 33.06% of the vote this week, but second place pulled in 33.26%. The first place finisher (either Katharine McPhee or Taylor Hicks) garnered but 33.68% to reach the finals.
    It can't get any closer.
    ***
    Shouldn't there be some sort of a recount.
    Al Gore would demand one. Chris Daughtry fans would be working online petitions at this hour and gathering tens of thousands of signatures. Elliot fans likely won't - but wow that is close.
    No wonder fans at times complain about the voting.
    ***
    American idol judge Paula Abdul had her weekly cry - she had said she was pulling for Elliott, but no matter he's off the show. Most are taking it well but postings from Yamin's fan base on the official American Idol message boards indicated that many were shocked by his elimination, reports E! Online.
    "I feel like my heart has been ripped out, and I'm still bawling. It hurts, it hurts so much," one fan lamented.
    "I too loved Elliott and he was a class act by himself. His vocals were superb. With a little more confidence, he will make it big and I will buy his CD," another fan wrote.
    ***
    Tears for Elliott:
    During Wednesday's program, Yamin told host Ryan Seacrest he felt "truly blessed." "I hope it doesn't stop here," he said of his music career.
    It shouldn't - he has a great voice.
    Yamin, who is 90 percent deaf in his right ear, was considered the show's best and most sensitive male singer. When "Idol" featured a segment on Wednesday documenting his return home to greet fans in Virginia, he broke down in tears, reports AP.
    ***
    Hey, he's a sensitive guy, it's working for Nick Lachey.
    The man has class and a very bright future. These last two weeks have shown that the most talent does not always win. But the finals should prove interesting with Hicks going in as a heavy favorite.

    I guess that goes that goes to show that AI doesn't care about the actual voice talent anymore, its all about physical apperance.

    I think Elliot is so hot. I hope he gets an offer to do Playgirl. I would much rather see him naked over that pussy Ace!
