Some people think that this season’s American Idol ratings spell death, however, the fairly long running talent competition implemented its all-new “sudden death” on BFF, Shubha Vedula and Adriana Latonio. Shubha was eliminated.
For the first time ever on Idol the top 40 are being subjected to a brutal sudden death round – where each performer is permitted just one chance to stay in the game.
Rhythmically-named Shubha Vedula, a 17-year-old high school senior from the Long Beach auditions had impressed judges until tonight when she gave a messy variation of Lady Gaga’s Born This Way.
She and her ‘BFF’ Adriana Latonio were left biting their nails until last – but only Adriana prevailed after a far more impressive rendition of Aretha Franklin’s Ain’t No Way.
Both girls sobbed dejectedly while they waited for the verdict – knowing that either way they would have to part.
‘Adriana is my best friend, I loved meeting her, getting to know her,’ sniffed Shubha as she gripped her pal’s hand.
On Wednesday’s show ten girls sang – but only five were saved. dailymail
