In the wackiest Bottom 3 since Season Three (when Jennifer Hudson was unceremoniously sent home), we found Joshua Ledet, Jessica Sanchez and Elise Testone in the bottom spots! These three are arguably some of the best singers in this competition. Then – in an even crazier twist, Joshua and Elise are told they are safe – leaving Jessica Sanchez to sing for her life.
“I’ve never seen this happen,” an irate Randy said of having two frontrunners – Jessica and Joshua – in the bottom with Elise. “This is a ridiculous bottom three … [America] got it wrong tonight, so wrong.”
He was even more irritated when Jessica was announced to be the contestant with the lowest number of votes. While Jessica performed her last-chance song, the judges stormed the stage and stopped her. Jennifer grabbed her microphone yelling, “give me that mic…you ain’t going home! Go sit down!” It was some of the strangest stuff I have EVER seen on Idol but I have to agree with Randy – America got it wrong. The judges used their save on Jessica so all seven will be back next week. Not sure if two people will be eliminated next week (that is usually the way it works) but, it is going to be a very, very tough week.
What do you think? Did America get it wrong?
