Thia Megia Voted Out From American Idol; Naima Adedapo Sent Home Too


It is the end of the long journey to stardom for the Filipina-American contestant Thia Megia.

The 11 Idol contestants performed the hits of Sir Elton John last night.  Thia sang one of the most popular songs of Elton John “Daniel”.

But Thia was also joined Naima Adedapo; who was also sent home after the two got the lowest votes.  Thia Meiga, Naima Adedapo and Paul MacDonald were on the bottom three.

Last week, the three Idol judges used their “save” on Casey Abrams that automatically made two contestants to be eliminated this week.

The 15-year old contestant from California had a long journey on Idol.  She established herself as a singer with a soft sweet voice that had sometimes led her to be criticized for just being a “balladeer.”  Two weeks ago, Randay Jackson and Jennifer Lopez asked Thia to show more and push herself to the limit.  To this, she responded with a bang during last week performance, wherein she sang “Heat Wave.”

Thia Megia’s parents hail from Angeles, Pampanga.

Earlier in the competition, a Filipino-American contestant was also in the show, Clint Jun Gamboa.  However, he was sent home too as the judged made the cut for the next round.
