“America has spoken,” said the words across the screen at the start of Top 12 results night on American Idol. And apparently, the message is “bring on the boys!” Yep, for the second consecutive week (in only two weeks of the season 10 finals), the bottom three contestants were all female.
I’ll leave it to you to discuss whether that means the Idoloonie Nation is actually digging something known as “Lusky Stank” (please, God, no) or if the women of season 10 simply aren’t performing up to expectations. (Perhaps a results-night guest spot from Melinda Doolittle is exactly the kind of front-row training these chicas have been waiting for? Get on it, Nigel!) As for me, I’ve got a full episode recap to write — look for it to post overnight here at TVLine.com — so I’d better get crackin’! But before I do, a rundown on tonight’s festivities:
Haley ‘Scarnato Shorts’ Reinhart
MySpace Contestant Karen Rodriguez
Naima ‘Robo-Strut’ Adedapo
Season 9 Champ Lee DeWyze: “Beautiful Like You”
Black Eyed Peas: A whole lot of foolery.
And there you have it! Did the right contestant go home? How did you feel about Karen’s sing-out/”save me!” performance of “Hero”? What about the performances by Lee and the BEPs? And who do you think is most likely to be at risk next week? Sound off below, and for all my Idol news and commentary, follow me on Twitter @MichaelSlezakTV!
