Welcome back. Tonight another contestant will be eliminated. American Idol has been tweeting out that tonight's results are shocking. Given that 4 out of the 6 remaining contestants have been in the Bottom 3 or 2 that gets me a little concerned and curious about what's gonna occur. Alex and Caleb have never been Bottom 3 or 2, Jena was Bottom 3 during Top 11 week so it's been awhile, but both CJ and Jessica have been nearly gone and Sam was actually eliminated and then saved.
So the most shocking results would be Alex, Caleb or Jena being eliminated, and that would be pretty terrible if they were gone before Sam or CJ who were picked as our Bottom 2 for last night, with CJ being selected as the one going home after having the weakest night of them all. We'll see how it all comes out. Let's get to it:
It was very Ford and very commercial. That means nothing and neither did the commercial.
Randy Jackson's Take=Caleb had an amazing night, took the roof off the place. Sam had a good solid night, Sam is starting to move up a little. With CJ the first song was good, the next song was not so good, he needs to give a better vocal performance.
Randy Jackson's Take=Jena is looking incredibly strong, has the eye of the tiger. Alex continues to show his artistry, thinks he had a strong night. Jessica had a solid night but not sure if the performances gave the judges enough that they wanted to hear.
Going Home=CJ. America got it right this week. They really did. He had a tough night last night, and overall hasn't had any true moments in this competition. He has been solid, but never really was in the Top 3 at any point. I think he seems like a likeable enough guy, but the 5 people on stage left in this competition are the right 5. I am pleased with tonight's results.
Our Season Prediction Totals
Bottom 3/2= 1 of 2 Tonight. 15 of 23 Total.
Going Home=1 of 1 Tonight. 3 of 9 Total.
*America did a good job tonight. Tonight's results were not shocking. If Caleb or Jena or even Alex was in Bottom 2 or sent home then I'd be shocked but this was correct and just. Sam probably should have been Bottom 2 over Jessica, but the judges really aren't helping Jessica with their comments, even when they like what she does. CJ had a rough night last night, and despite Jennifer Lopez crying it was the right decision by America.
*I have to say America has gotten it right pretty much every week. Sure I wouldn't have minded Majesty or Malaya being around over Sam but it's definitely been a good job by them throughout the Top 12.
*Next week's theme is America's choice. Supposedly America tweeted what they wanted each contestant to sing. I don't remember being asked. But despite the slight it'll be interesting to see what the public has chosen for them.
*The best performance of last night was Caleb's performance of "Sting Me" by Black Crowes. It was pretty crazy and all around really great. Check it out if you haven't already or want to again:
That's it. CJ has been eliminated and we are left with our Top 5. Not a bad Top 5. I'd say 3 of the 5 left have a great shot at winning and the other 2 can land at least in the finals if they pick great songs and are outstanding. I'll leave it up to you to decide which 3 and which 2 I am speaking of. Come back next week for another recap. So until then, see ya!
