Will Ramielle Malubay stay on top 5 of American Idol season 7 ?

March 18, 2008 Hollywood: Filipino-American Ramiele Malubay performed “I Should Have Known Better” on American Idol Top 11. "I Should Have Known Better" is a song composed by John Lennon(credited to Lennon/McCartney), and originally released by The Beatles on the United Kingdom-version of A Hard Day's Night, their soundtrack for the film of the same name.

Ramiele Malubay is still the most popular girl in the competition in terms of cuteness and likability so that still works in her favor.

However, there is a possibility of Ramiele Malubay getting hammered by the judges in the early rounds, with her hopefully surviving intact. She’s obviously the neophyte (similar to David Hernandez) among all the “veterans” (or professionals?) on the show, so American Idol will use that for all its worth. Plus, Ramiele Malubay crying in the sidelines every single elimination show is priceless. They can’t get rid of her early, but they are going to make her cry her eyes out week after week.

I think the broad appeal of Ramiele Malubay will carry her deep into the Top 5 this year. She truly has a big voice underneath all that cuteness. If you just listen to her, you would be surprised of her amazing vocal talent. I really love how she’s not afraid to show her emotions on the show — apparently she’s really this bubbly young woman genuinely excited about all the attention that American Idol is bringing. The shoes! The clothes! We love it too Ramiele. Even Simon Cowell, AI's Mr. Nasty, when he gives a negative comment to Ramielle, it elicits a submissive "ok" from the young Fil-Am Ramielle. Sing straight from the heart Ramielle. Be confident and proud. Make Filipinos and Filipino-Americans proud too.
