After the Tears, Ramiele Malubay Reflects on Idol

Got your own questions for when Ramiele drops by TVGuide.com? Share them in comments!Despite the tears Wednesday night following her elimination, Ramiele Malubay was her typical cheerful self the next day, offering perspective on her performances on Idol and the competition overall, as well as what the future may hold (and yes, Danny Noriega is in it). With solemnity, Malubay acknowledged the hard truth that "there is only one winner [of the show]," but she also sees her weeks on Idol as significant, even if her chances to win are over. "It's actually the first real big thing that's happened in my life," she said. "It's exposure, it's a future, and I'm very grateful to the judges to get me as far as I did to let America judge."And by "judges," Malubay was including Simon, too. He compared her Tuesday performance to that of a singer on a cruise ship, but she still trusts that he has her best interest in mind. "Oh, he likes me, I know he does," Malubay assured reporters. "I... believe...read more

The Top 8: Who's Your Idol Now?

The following contains spoiler information about Wednesday night's American Idol results show.No huge surprises this week. There may have been one or two others who could have been sent home, but there certainly is no arguing with America's latest decision. The Davids were of course safe, Carly's still more than solid, and you have to figure Jason can work the pretty eyes and charm for another round or two. So, after all was said and done tonight, as it boiled down to Kristy Lee, Brooke and Ramiele, it was the littlest lass who got sung off.All of which is my long-winded way of saying: Who's your pick to win Idol now? Paula's got the Davids, Michael and Carly in her "final four." But is there a dark horse who could still ride up and steal a win? Vote here, and have your say in the next Power Rankings.PS. Got questions for when Ramiele drops by TVGuide.com for her video Q&A? Share them in comments! read more
