'Good Day LA' (weekdays, 9AM PT on Fox) caught up with the girls afterward to ask them about the harsh criticism. "Simon being mean is not rare form, Simon being nice is" Paige Ogle said. Cowell seemed to hate everything about the performance, from the set design to the choreography, which he called "gimmicky." But Dani Knights defended their choices by saying, "It was Rock Week, you know, like there had to be dancers. It had to be a banging performance."
If the girls go home tonight, that will be it for Paula Abdul and her groups. However, Stacy Francis also had a difficult night last night. Paula said it was her "least favorite song" and Simon said the song choice was horrible, so there may be hope for Lakoda Rayne and Paula Abdul yet.
