American Idol tonight will be a Results episode, where we will learn which of the Elite 8 contestants left in the running will be sent home, having received the lowest amount of votes from you, America! As usual, there will be some terrific musical performances, and at the end of the show, we will be left with the Super 7 contestants. The episode tonight will be only a half an hour long.
Randy said he thinks Caleb, Jessica, Dexter, and Jena will be Safe from being eliminated. That sounds like s well-reasoned appraisal; they gave some awesome performances. Randy said it would “be difficult for America to determine who the Bottom Three will be.”
The host of American Idol, Ryan Seacrest, began this episode by saying that Daughtry is there, live, to perform later in the episode, Then, he introduced the three judges, Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban, and Harry Connick Junior. The audience went wild, giving them a standing ovation and screaming.
Ryan said “that’s everyone in unison saying ‘J-Lo, you look hot.'” She did look pretty hot, really, dressed in a pink short number.
Then, a clip was shown of the remaining competitors talking over last night’s performances at the supper table.
After that, Ryan said: “The first person that will be moving on in the competition next week will be — it’s Dexter!” Again, like last week’s Results show, Ryan used a screen behind him to show the faces of the people who he’s announcing who will be saved. “Who’s going to get some good news right now? Jena is safe!”
Those are the only two names that Ryan will reveal right now. American Idol went to its first commercial break of the evening.
Back from the break, Ryan showed scenes of the contestants during “down time’ driving around, hanging out at the beach, having a great time. Then, Randy introduced Chris Daughtry, who performed his hit song, “Waiting for Superman.”
Ryan, back from break, gave more results. “The next person to continue their run — Caleb Johnson! congratulations, Caleb! Also, moving on to next week, Jessica Meuse! Who’s next? The next person moving forward is — Alex! Alex stays alive! That means Malaya, Sam, and C.J. are your Bottom Three! One will sing live after the break!”
American Idol went to another commercial break. This episode is going by fast, as it’s only a half-an-hour in length. Who will be the person who will be singing for his/her life? The answer will be revealed when American Idol comes back from the commercial break to find that out!
“Here we go! After the nation-wide vote, the person who will go for the save is — Sam Woolf!” Ryan announced. He will be singing “Babylon.”
Sam did a great job with this song, and the audience clapped along the entire performance. The judges discussed his performance even as he was singing. The audience gave him a standing ovation.
The judges must be unanimous, and all of them agree whenever they decide to use the Save. They are in agreement this week — they will use the Save! Sam is safe for another week on American Idol! Confetti dropped down from the ceiling, and C.J. Harris came onto the stage to give Sam a big bear hug. Ryan announced that next week is 80s week.
Sam Woolf’s performance was good, but do you think it warranted the judges using their Save? Who do you think will be eliminated next week on American Idol? Please leave your comments below!
