American Idol wild card: giving psycho Tatiana Del Toro another shot
As American Idol begins its "wild card" episode tonight -- in which judges pick three finalists to join nine people selected by audience vote -- I will only note that one of the performers in the running is psycho gal Tatiana Del Toro, whose vocal skill was often outweighed by her talent for sparking TV-friendly drama.
The wild card contestants:
Von Smith, 22, Kansas City, Mo.
Jasmine Murray, 16, Starkville, Miss.
Ricky Braddy, 26, Nashville, Tenn.
Megan Corkrey, 22, Sandy, UT
Tatiana Del Toro, 24, San Juan, Puerto Rico
Matt Giraud, 23, Kalamazoo, Mich.
Jesse Langseth, 25, Minneapolis, Minn.
Anoop Desai, 21, Chapel Hill, N.C.
This was something I'd predicted last week; Idol is always balancing TV needs with the actual contest. Wonder how that will affect whom the judges actually pick for the contest tonight?
