It seemed like the good comments Thia Megia received from the judges for her 'Motown' performance were not enough to at least spare the youngest contestant to be in the 'bottom three' or the 3 finalists with the least number of votes in the world famous American Idol Season 10.
For the first time, 16 year-old Filipino American Thia Megia was among the three who got the lowest scores in the nationwide voting. She was with Casey Abrams and Stefano Langone who was given heavy comments by the Judges during the 'performance night', yesterday. On the other hand, Thia's was among the favorite performances during that night. She delivered an upbeat rendition of the classic hit "Heatwave" and received commendations from the three judges for taking a risk and coming out of her shell. And thus, it was a surprise to see her land in the 'bottom three'.
But was Thia saved?
Yes. Luckily, she was. And also Stefano making Casey perform for the judges' one-time 'save power'. And yes, the judges did use the 'power' on Casey, adding a pressure on the Top 11 finalists to impress everyone with their performances next week since 2 of them are sure to go home!
