Are you ready?
Is the person you couldn’t stand the last two nights going home? Did America vote the right persons off? Stay tunes….THIS is American Idol!
There was a little bit of tears as we saw the first group song of the season. Moreso, I was excited to see Kris Allen and Alison Iraheta!
So the group sang American Boy - a contrast to last night’s American Woman. I’m always amused how the choreographers give them all these robotic steps. There were a few times where it looked like Casey was a little lost and other times where it looked like they were lip-syncing. My how clear my TV is! I finally bought a Flat Screen and can see every pore on those kids! First time ever I get to watch Idol in HD!
So we’re back from the break and already, Ryan askes the back row of girls to stand up. Siobahn, Haeley, Michelle, Katelyn all safe. So we’re down to Katie and Janelle.
Oh no! Janelle is going home. I was really rooting for Janelle. I know her performance wasn’t the greatest, but I really wanted her to stay. In my opnion, Haeley should have gone home. The whole time Janelle and Katie were standing there, Janelle looked very nervous and fidgety. She’s really holding true to herself and is exiting with style. Isn’t weird how the 2nd performance of their last song always sounds better than their previous performance? We’ll miss you Janelle.
Allison Iraheta is back and I have missed her so much from last year. I miss that sultry, raspy voice of hers. Tonight she sings her released single, Scars. Nicely done Alison. Scars will be added to my iTunes library for sure!
Here we go, next set of girls. Paige, Lacey, Lily and Crystal all safe. So we’re down to Ashley and Didi. I said last night that Ashley would go home. What do you think? Ashley Rodriguez goes home. Another gracious contestant.
So here we go, first set of boys. Back row, please stand up. Michael is safe. John Park is up. I think he’s going home. Did America agree? No, John is staying. Cutey Aaron is also moving forward. Here we come to Todrick and he is another I think will go home. America keeps him in. So we’re down to Tim Urban and Joe Munoz. Joe looks really nervous. I think between these too, Tim should go home. Tim will probably get girl votes. I liked Joe’s performance last night. OMG, Joe is going home. Tim is in shock and VERY surprised. So am I. Tim should have gone home. Joe I’m so sorry. Here we are listening to your final performance and again, it is way better than last night. Good luck to you Joe, hope to run into you around town. Last night you should have ditched the guitar and did the performance just like you did tonite.
Kris it is sooo good to see you. Thank you your part in helping out with the Haiti effort. Please download the song by purchasing his song from iTunes and 100% of the fees will go to the Haiti effort. It was a very moving performance Kris. Thanks again for being there on the ground in Haiti and lending a hand.
So here we go the last elimination of the night. Casey James, of course is safe. Jermaine is up. What are those? Glassless glasses? Jermaine was on my list of guys to go – he is staying. Lee Dewyze is staying. YES!! We we go and we’re down to Andrew Garcia and he makes it thru! You better bring it next week. So we are down to Tyler and Alex. Tyler I thought for sure would go thru from a popularity point of view. Alex is here too. Alex looks dejected and looks like he is prepping himself for bad news. WHOA! Tyler is going home. I think he played that 70s rocker thing too far.
It certainly is always sad to see the goodbye footage. Good night Janelle, Ashley, Joe and Tyler.Filed under: American Idol, Personal Log
