American Idol: Results Show (1 of 9 goes home)
Well, most of you correctly predicted who would go home on American Idol this week. A whopping 1183 votes for the predicted loser were logged in our poll!
But before we got to find out who it was for real, a whole bunch of other stuff happened, starting with Kara saying she appreciates the audience and their passion for the Idols. That was in reference to the heckling she got last night.
And Paula tried to redeem herself by saying that while she put the spotlight on Adam Lambert (you know, that Mick Jagger/Steven Tyler comment), she knows that all of the Idols have something special. Alrighty then.
After a freaky Ford commercial that paired different body parts of the Idols with other body parts, the Top 9 did a rendition of Journey's "Don't Stop Believin," which I can't hear without thinking of the final episode of The Sopranos ... sniff.
Then we got to see a little bit of "A Day in the Life of an American Idol," including photo shoots, appearances, flashing cameras, rehearsals, and their own chef who cooks for them several times a week. As Allison Iraheta said, "My life right now could not get any better."
Then we got a funny little bit about the Idols impersonating each other. No matter what happens or who goes home, they seem like they're having a blast.
Mixed in amongst the results stuff, we had performances by David Cook (kind of forgettable, in my opinion) and a wild song by Lady Gaga. She is one hot mess! Whatever you say about her, you'll probably remember her performance. She had on this scary alien-inspired outfit, and her dancers made me a little woozy. But I do like her voice. It's really interesting.
On to the results: Ryan split the Idols into three groups, which really didn't go anywhere. Kris, Matt, Lil, Adam, Danny, and Scott were sent back to the chairs. They're safe for this week. But Allison, Megan Joy, and Anoop ended up in the bottom three.
When Simon said there was only one of the three the judges would save, I think we all knew it would be Allison. But she was sent to safety, leaving Anoop and Megan Joy clinging to each other. Well, maybe it was just Megan Joy clinging to Anoop.
When Anoop was saved, Simon told Megan Joy they wouldn't even contemplate saving her, so this would be her "swan song." That can't be easy for her, having to face all this rejection. But she seemed ok with it and told her little son, "I'm coming home, Baby!"
