American Idol Results Show The Super Seven Become the Top Six (Recap/Review)

On American Idol tonight, the Super Seven competitors will be going down to the Top Six as one of the remaining competitors gets eliminated. Kevin Bacon introduced the episode, saying “And this is American Idol!” with Ryan Seacrest playfully jostling him out of the way. It will be another fast-paced Results show

Ryan, the host of American Idol, began this half-hour Results episode by introducing the three judges, Keith Urban, Jennifer Lopez, and Harry Connick Junior.  Ryan said that the judges will be tweeting live throughout the show.

We then got to see the contestants talking about last night’s performance as they sat around a table outside and ate. One of the topics was the appearance and comments of Demi Lovato, who was a special guest last night on American Idol. Ryan said that he would announce the first results right after the first commercial break.

After the commercials, Ryan asked the contestants what they would do if they had a Mustang just for a day, as this marked the 50th Anniversary of Mustang. They answered the question, while driving, or being driven, in Mustangs.

“Time to get serious,” R then said, and we saw recaps of the first competitors who will be called onto the stage by Ryan: Dexter Roberts, Alex Preston, and Jena Irene.

“Right now,” Ryan said, “we’ll find out who does belong here.” Going to the big screen where Ryan has been showing the faces of contestants who either stay or get sent home during the Results Show episodes, Jena’s face was the first one there, then Alex’s. Those two were Safe; Dexter, unfortunately, was in the Bottom Two. Will he be the one going home later tonight on American Idol?

After another batch of commercials, American Idol came back with recaps of the performances last night of C.J. Harris, Jessica Meuse, and Caleb, and Sam Woolf. We heard the judges’ comments last night, and also Randy Jackson’s. Of these, Randy seemed to like Caleb’s performance the best, but just gave him an 8.

Ryan said that “The next person to secure himself a spot in the Top Six is -” and then, we saw Caleb on the screen. The next person Safe was C.J. Harris, who gave what may have been his best performance so far of the season last night. Sam Woolf’s face was shown next; Jessica will join C.J. in the Bottom Two, while Caleb and C.J. will be moving on.

Jennifer Lopez said last night that she thought Jessica’s performance wasn’t as good as some of her past ones. Her remarks might have influenced the voting of the American public; who knows? Will tonight be Jessica’s last night on American Idol this season?

Ryan said after more commercials: “The person who will be leaving the competition is — Dexter Roberts.”

This is another sad departure, as Dexter has been a pretty consistent performer, and he’s one of the only country singers ¬†(if you don’t count CJ. or Jessica, the only one) who has made it this far in the season. Dexter sang for his farewell song “Lucky Man.”

The audience clapped and cheered as Dexter sang, and the credits for American Idol played on the screen.

These half-hour episodes seem to go by so quickly, but Ryan and the others definitely make use of what little time they have. Of course, someone had to be eliminated tonight, but all of the remaining competitors are great singers, and they have deserved to have come this far on American Idol. Do you think that someone else deserved to go before Dexter? Please leave your comments below!

    This years American Idol really sucks. They all sing terrible! Even the judges suck! Everyone of the judges always say how wonderful all the contestants are no matter how much they suck. I only watch it to see them all get the boot.

    Surprised! CJ is still there?! Don’t see his talent at all! Sorry

    So glad Sam made it tonight, sorry for Dexter, he will do well in the county community, no doubt! I see Sam as something the youth need in this generation, we have had so many sell outs in our young / eg|: Justin Bieber? Miley Cyrus. No insults meant! I just think Sam has an old soul/respect and is still cool/still currant with today’s interests, he just seems to have a genuine respect and genuine talent/beautifulvoice. I hope he does become America’s/ Canada’s ect new idol, new example of what IDOL means really means!
    He has genuine talent, he needs guidance, time to grow & he will, and he will grow in talent and stay genuine what our youth need…..A IDOL!!!

    So it was Dexter. I’m a bit surprised, I would have thought Jessica or CJ. With that said my choice for his last show would. Have been cm. He has zero upper register giving him less vocally to work with. He usually with what range he has is often sharp. This year with all the. Choices for the top ten I was disappointed. To many pentatonic runs vocally with no control. That has been resolved. I’m going to predict the winner as Jena. Harry sometimes called Tony some say is harsh. I disagree, he is judging while sometimes the other judges sometimes become part of the audience. When your dancing and singing along how can you pay attention to the runs and of key singing or being behind or ahead of the band. That’s it.~ Dave ~

    Tonight’s show is one reason I say every season that I am not gonna watch Idol again! Please….Dexter Roberts got voted off before Jessica Meuse??? Really? What are the voters hearing that I am not? When Malaya was voted off, I just knew I shouldn’t be watching this darned show again….so frustrating! Malaya was better than them all in my opinion & then Dexter! And when the Judges saved Sam, I really knew it was time to turn the TV off and go to bed! That really was a bad save! The young screaming girls think he’s hot, but hey girls what about his singing? He’s not bad, just not THAT good! I am very disappointed!

    I was surprised. I thought it should have been Jessica leaving before Dexter. I hope he can have a career in music. He has a great voice for country songs. And, he seems to be a super nice guy.

    Yes. Sam. He was already voted off and he got saved. Not a good save. The only reason Sam is staying is because of the young girls. Dexter is much better. Very disappointing American Idol.
