New Poll: Saving Sam

Last night the judges used their one save to prevent Sam Woolf from being sent home. In the short term. This was a bit puzzling for me; Sam has been underperforming this whole time, and had more than one trip to the bottom 3 under his belt going into this week. His “save me please!” performance was weak. And yet the judges saved him anyway. Why? His big sad eyes? To keep his contingent of teeny bopper voters in the game (although apparently they aren’t, or he wouldn’t have been in so much trouble last night and previously). It’s a bit puzzling. What do you guys think?

    My theory as to why they saved him: everyone’s solo performances were good Wednesday night. It was the best episode of the season, and even Cj improved his pitch problems. I think the judges all got together after the performance show and agreed that no matter who ended up in the Bottom 3, they were going to use the save. They wanted to keep everyone because the night struck such a good note.
