Tonight’s episode of American Idol 9 begins on FOX with Ryan Seacrest introducing judges Kara Dioguardi, Ellen Degeneres, Randy Jackson and Simon Cowell, before announcing the Top Eleven, who are performing a group rendition of Wham’s Wake Me Up Before You Go Go! Also hitting the stage tonight throughout the results drama will be Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato and Joe Jonas!
Ryan points out how quiet the contestants are tonight as they wonder which of them will not make it into the Top Ten, thereby losing out on the opportunity to go on the American Idol tour in the summer.Â Â After showing a clip ofÂ Big Mike wearing his baby carrier, Ryan asks Siobhan Magnus to stand up, then tells her to pack her bags -Â because she’s going out on tour – she’s safe!Â Lee Dewyze and Casey James are next to stand up and feel the heat. He keeps them in suspense as he asks Tim Urban and Paige Miles to join him. Randy guesses that Paige is the one in the bottom three – he’s right, she is, and so is Tim! Casey and Lee are safe.
Ryan tells the audience that next week, Usher will be with them as a mentor, meanwhile, this week’s mentor, Miley Cyrus is set to perform Look At You live! Her pop, Billy Ray Cyrus is in the audience! After she sings, Miley and Ryan dish about the judges opinions the previous night – Miley concedes they were tough, and she disagreed with some of their viewpoints (she liked Tim’s stage slide). Miley also jokes that Simon scares her!
Aaron Kelly is asked by Ryan to stand – he is quickly told to sit back down – he’s good to go another week! Didi Benami is next in the spotlight, she took a risk last night and is confused now. Simon tells her she’s overthinking it. Ryan tells her she’ll get another shot to get it right – she’s safe!Â Michael Lynche is also going out on tour this summer – he’s in the Top Ten. Crystal Bowersox will also be back next week! Katie Stevens and Andrew Garcia are asked to stand up together – Ryan tells them that Katie is in the bottom three – Andrew is safe!Â But Ryan instantly sends one person back to safety – it’s Katie!Â Tim or Paige will be leaving.
Joe Jonas and Demi Lovato take the stage together next to perform a duet, Make a Wave, much to the delight of the screaming fans in the live audience!
Ryan asks for the lights to be dimmed, and announces that the person going home tonight after the nationwide vote , unless the judges use the save, is Paige. Simon tells her immediately that he doesn’t want to give her false hope – they won’t be saving her tonight – it’s unanimous. Paige says she had a blast no matter what, and sings one last time.
