#10- Janay Castine - Hit 'Em Up Style
Three words: Watch. The. Arms...
We're teaming with AOL Television to name the 12 worst 'American Idol' semifinalists ever. We'll be posting one finalist each week. Check back next Tuesday for our pick at #3.
AOL Television and Vote for the Worst bring you the 12 Worst Finalists in American Idol history. Other people may have hated them, but Vote for the Worst loves these misunderstood geniuses for the entertainment value they brought to American Idol. So their "worst" is our "best", and we're gonna tell you why.
Check out #4: Jasmine Trias at AOL Television today. Jasmine, also known as Jasmalien at VFTW for the hypnotic power the flower in her hair had over us mere Earthlings, was another great early VFTW success during Idol season 3. When talented singer like Jennifer Hudson exited the competition, the incredibly horrible Jasmine Trias wasn't even in the bottom group. Why? One word: Hawaii. Hawaii has its own time zone and thus can get in way more votes than any other location voting for Idol. The show found this out the hard way as Jasmine sailed to a top 3 finish without even breaking a sweat, making VFTW cheer and laugh when she ruined "It's Raining Men", proceeded to cry, and then was among the top 2 vote getters the next night. LaToya London went home in a shocking 4th place finish and America cemented their hate for Jasmalien. Our favorite Hawaiian's lasting legacy on the show? A contestant from Hawaii hasn't made the voting rounds since. Now that's funny!
We'll be switching back and forth to get the entire list of 12 up. Our pick for #3 will be posted next Tuesday.
To celebrate the fact that Nigel Lythgoe has quit his job on American Idol, we put together a tribute video that features many awesome moments in the first four years of Vote for the Worst. See if you recognize everyone in the video, and if not, read up on some VFTW history. It's good stuff. Enjoy, and here's to many more years of VFTW victories (that just happen to now be Nigel-free)!
As the seventh season of American Idol has ended, Vote for the Worst has compiled a list of the 20 performances that make us actually take the time to watch Idol.
