I’m not sure who’s going home – but judging from the feedback from some of my Idol lovin friends, they don’t love DeAndre. These friends of mine tend to represent the tastes of America and I am hoping they are wrong – but, they could be right.
As they head to the first break, they show a sneak peek of J Lo’s new video for Dance Again. It is pretty steamy and features an awful lot of camera time of her boyfriend Casper Smart – one of the dancers.
Tonight’s Ford video features the contestants on a scavenger hunt singing to Alright (Supergrass). Results will be handled according to last night’s duets, starting with Jessica Sanchez and Joshua Ledet. I can’t imagine either of these kids being in jeopardy. Joshua is not feeling well and is fighting off the feeling of passing out. Jimmy Iovine thinks that Joshua was a little over-affected at the beginning but then he pulled it back in and is in the sweet spot. He says that these two are the main competition on the show and he says that Joshua won because he chose a better song. Both are safe.
The Wanted perform Glad You Came. Boy bands are back, it seems. Especially British boy bands. My daughter perked up when these kids performed.
Skylar Laine and Colton Dixon sang Islands in the Stream. I thought they both had fairly strong performances, but Skylar was the stronger one for me. It looks as if Jimmy agrees with me. He said that Skylar could win the whole thing if she continues to sing like she did on Wednesday. I don’t know if I would go that far – but she was the better of the two. Jimmy thought Colton was good, not great. Before announcing which one was in the bottom, Ryan calls up DeAndre Brackensick and Hollie Cavanagh. Jimmy called Hollie’s song a bad high school performance and said that she will likely be fighting DeAndre for the spot to go home. DeAndre is in the bottom three. Colton is safe. Hollie goes to the bottom with DeAndre and Skylar is safe.
Kellie Pickler (Season 5) returns to the show to sing her new single, Where’s Tammy Wynette. Kellie predicts that all of the Top 10 will be getting record deals.
Either Elise Testone or Phillip Phillips will fill out tonight’s bottom three. I think Elise was a better performer last night, but I seem to be strongly in the minority where this is concerned. Jimmy says that Phillip’s performance last night was the worst of the entire show. He thinks Elise chose the absolutely right song but says she did not bring it when she got to the stage. Phillip and his super cocky attitude are safe. Hollie is also safe. Boo.
DeAndre is the one in danger of going home. The judges say America didn’t get it right. DeAndre chooses to sing Master Blaster (Stevie Wonder). I love that as Ryan was telling him about what was going down – DeAndre was telling his sister to stop crying. The judges choose not to save him. Jennifer basically tells him that she voted to save him and Steven and Randy did not. I really enjoy DeAndre and the vibe he brought to the show. I’ll miss him.
