No more second chances. No more safety nets. Tonight, someone must go home. So – who is it going to be? Will Hollie and Elise be back in the Bottom Three or will the group from last week be there again? Last night the contestants received 53 million votes – the most votes received so far this season.
Kris Allen and LMFAO will be here to perform and the Top 7 kick off the evening with Dancing In The Sreets (Martha & The Vandellas).
First up are Joshua Ledet and Hollie Cavanagh. Jimmy says that Joshua was in his sweet spot and that unfortunately Hollie is going to have a long row to hoe. Joshua is safe, Hollie goes back to the Bottom 3.
Before Kris Allen (Season Eight) sings his new single Vision of Love, Season 5 winner of Idol announces, “I’m going to be doing Vegas this summer…come see me!” OK – there is your Taylor Hicks update. This is the second or third time I have heard this song and I like it more and more each time I hear it. Good job Kris.
Skylar Laine and Elise Testone are up next. Jimmy says, “I think Skylar delivered; I think Elise fell flat.” I love Jimmy’s to the point nature. The man is a music mogul for a reason. Elise is back in the Bottom 3 and Skylar is safe. Hollie and Elise should buy property on those chairs!
Before LMFAO performs, Ryan narrates a tribute sequence to Dick Clark. He says that LMFAO would have been perfect for American Bandstand. They come on the stage and sing “Sorry For Party Rocking”
Either Colton Dixon, Phillip Phillips or Jessica Sanchez will be in tonight’s Bottom Three. I think that Jessica is probably safe and that one of the boys will be in the Bottom 3. Jimmy says he realizes that Jessica is singing songs that are too old for her. I have to agree with Jimmy. He feels that Phillip was the winner when compared to Colton. I loved Phillip’s first song was not crazy about the second, but I didn’t care for either of Colton’s performances so again I will have to side with Jimmy on this one. Jessica is safe and Colton ends up in the Bottom 3, it is his first time in that position.
I have to say that I am ready for Hollie to go home so she is the person I hope America sends home. Elise is safe and it is down to Colton and Hollie. The lights dim and Ryan announces that Colton’s journey has ended. When Ryan asked him what he thinks happened, Colton says, ”You know, I need to apologize, I wasn’t myself last night, and I get it. I appreciate what you told me last night. I’ll take that when I’m making a record.” Good for him. He definitely has an audience and I think he will be just fine.
Did the right person go home tonight?
