Megan Joy Corkery says bye-bye! After the iTunes week, Corkery failed to advance to the Top 8 after a weak performance of the Bob Marley original "Turn Your Lights Down Low."
Corkery got an unanimous "disappointment" from the judges after a very weak and "playing safe" performance. We posted here a while ago that Corkery is in danger.
The tattooed 23-year-old single mother from Sandy, Utah, who crooned Bob Marley's "Turn Your Lights Down Low," received the least number of viewer votes on the popular Fox network singing competition Wednesday - and the show's judges didn’t even consider saving her.
"I'm not going to pretend that we’re even going to contemplate saving you," said Simon Cowell.
Corkrey didn't bring any joy to the judges on Tuesday's pop music-themed performance show.
Kara Dioguardi attacked Corkrey's song choice while being heckled by the audience, insisting said she would have rather heard Corkrey sing Adele's "Chasing Pavements" instead of the Marley tune.
Cowell also lashed out, calling her performance "boring" and "indulgent." "I love you, Simon, but I don’t care," Corkrey retaliated Wednesday.
A miffed Cowell got the last word, even though she had been one of the judges' wild-card picks: "Megan, with the greatest respect, when you said that you don't care, nor do we.... This is your swan song. Enjoy it."
The eight contestants who remain in the singing competition: Iraheta, Desai, Adam Lambert, Danny Gokey, Kris Allen, Lil Rounds, Matt Giraud and Scott MacIntyre. On next Tuesday's performance show, the top eight finalists will perform tunes released the year of their birth. All of the remaining finalists - except for Iraheta - were born in the 1980s.
