Jorge Is Through! Tatiana Is Back! Pigs Are Flying!

Fox

Okay, last night's American Idol elimination/wild card pick extravaganza was so fraught with shock announcements and cliffhanger moments, I don't even know where to start!

First, the good news: Jorge Nuñez became the first native boricua to make it to Idol's Top 12, and I could not be happier. He had so many endearing on-camera moments this week—from shouting out his fans in Spanish to lamenting the "freezing" 78-degree Cali weather—that I think his fanbase will only grow from here.

Then, the perplexing news (or terrible news, depending on how you view it). Tatiana Nicole Del Toro is baaack! The judges shocked everyone by giving Del Toro a second shot as a wild card pick, and just as you'd expect, she did not take it in stride. She nearly fainted and bawled like a baby/semi-crazy person, and I've decided that I will heretofore refer to her as La Llorona.

Overall, I'm pretty happy with the wild card picks, but I would have liked to see Felicia Barton and Ju‘not Joyner instead of Tatiana and Von Smith, whose hair gets loonier by the day. But, c'est la vie.

What did you think about Jorge making the Top 12? And what about the surprise Wild Card pick of Tatiana—do you think she'll pull out all the stops tonight and have a chance at making the cut?
