Tonightwas elimination night on American Idol and as Simon Cowell promised last week,therewere two people going home this evening. Whose journey ended tonight? Over 45 million votes came in last night and tonight Ryan Seacrest said that as the judges used their save last week, they would have less to do tonight on the show, well all of them except Paula Abdul. She choreographed the group performance this week.
The contestants came out and sang Shake Your Body Down To the Ground from the disco era right down to the 70′s costuming. The performance tonight was once again back on lip-synching mode. Too bad! The Top 7 gave Paula Abdul flowers for all her hard work this week and she said that she has never seen anyone work harder and shewas so proud of them.
Tonight the Ford video was I’m Good, I’m Gone and it wasn’t as great as the one last week, but it looked fun to shoot none the less!
Ryan Seacrest then began the drama with the dimming of the lights. He asked Lil Rounds to stand up and walked herover to the silver chairs of doom. He let her off the hook quickly and told her that she is a courageous contestant, but unfortunately her journey ends tonight. Lil sang her Disco song I’m Every Woman from last evening and received the praises of Simon Cowell, Randy Jackson, Kara DioGuardi and Paula Abdul.
Next a medley of Disco hits was performed by Freida Payne, Thelma Houston and KC from The Sunshine Band fame!! Not sure whatwas happening to American Idol tonight…the whole medley was pretty scary!
The lights were dimmed once more as Kris Allen stood to take the news. Ryan Seacrest told Kris that even though he shopped in the ladies department last night, America thought it all seemed to fit and he was safe! Adam Lambert and Danny Gokey were safe tonight too! Anoop Desaiwas then told that hewas in the bottom two and took his walk to the silver chairs of doom. Matt Giraud and Allison Iraheta were next on the hit list and this week Mattwas safe and Allison walked over to meet Anoop.
David Archuleta was the American Idol alumni tonight and after he sang, he gave the American Idols in the bottom two a pep talk and told them that a lot of contestants who never made it as the American Idol went on to live their dream! He is so cute and has grown so much in the past year as a performer and a person. Wow!
Ryan Seacrest then got right down to the final elimination of the evening and said that after this season’s record breaking vote of over 45 million, the second person going home tonightwas Anoop! Anoop took his second bow as Paula Abdul danced for him. American Idol then showed the journey of both Anoop and Lil as Carrie Underwood’s singing played in the background.
