It's a Double Elimination on the 'American Idol' Results Show (VIDEO)

The Bottom Three, 'American Idol'There's something fishy going on this season on 'American Idol' (Thu., 8PM ET on FOX). There's a pattern forming with these eliminations that could prove very disconcerting for certain remaining contestants.

As established last night, because of the Judges' save of Casey Abrams last week, not one but two contestants will get to see their video package as their time on 'Idol' comes to an end. The good news is, they'll both get to go on tour, but for now their time on the show is coming to an end.

It was a little strange that Ryan Seacrest still trimmed us to a Bottom 3. From there, he simply announced that one of them was safe and eliminated the other two at the same time. Which one is in 11th place, Ryan? Who got more votes, but still not enough?

'American Idol' airs Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8PM ET on FOX.

Naima Adedapo's reggae performance must not have resonated with audiences, while Thia Megia may have sung one ballad too many. Neither are strangers to the Bottom 3, but Paul McDonald was new to the stools.

But, for fans of Paul, his time in the Bottom 3 was short-lived as he was sent to safety and the girls were sent packing. That makes it four girls in a row sent packing. Considering the girls started with a 7-6 advantage in the Top 13, it's a little surprising they're getting cut so quickly.

Is it reflective of the demographics of the 'Idol' audience, or simply that the guys are so much stronger this year? There are only three girls left, though we'd be surprised if Lauren, Pia and Haley were the next three to go. There's some serious talent there.

Were you surprised by these results?

Yes I was. I think of the three Paul should have gone. Listening to his voice gives me another theory about why the Titanic sunk...he was the entertainment that night and the passengers destroyed the vessel just trying to get away...take me icy waters of the north atlantic! Anything's better than Paul. Of the two girls, Naima is an entertainer, and looks great...like a raunchier version of Vanessa Williams... but she's not a strong singer...Thia has an amazing voice...she just needs to grow...

They are all talented...since America is voting, its not about the voice anymore, its about the person...
