To "be Tamyra'ed" means to be overlooked in a voting process, especially on American Idol, due to a perception of "not needing the help." In the first season of American Idol, many viewers now feel that Tamyra Gray failed to get her fair share of votes, because people thought she was so good that she would surely get a lot of votes and therefore they should instead vote for their second or third favorite singers who might have been in danger of being sent home.
If Fantasia is your favorite singer this season, why aren't you voting for her tonight, after her best performance to date? If everyone thinks the same way you do, she'll be Tamyra'ed for sure!
