Tonight on FOX, the American Idol 9 competition really becomes intense as there is a dramatic double elimination! Adam Lambert performs live, as well as Justin Gaston and Brooke White who will do a duet. Ryan Seacrest introduces Simon Cowell, Ellen Degeneres, Kara Dioguardi, and Randy Jackson, as well as the top nine, who entertain the crowd with a group medley of Elvis tunes! Read on for all the night’s highlights!
Ryan calls for the lights to be dimmed, then asks Casey James, Aaron Kelly, and Andrew Garcia to stand up. He brings them to the stage, lines them up, and reminds each of them of the judges’ remarks from last night.Â Ryan abruptly tells Andrew Garcia that it’s the end of the road for him. Casey and Aaron are safe – they go to sit down, and Andrew sings live one last time.
Ryan shows footage from Idol Gives Back of Elliot Yamin and Kara in Angola, Africa, noting that Idol Gives Back is one week from tonight. Kara and Elliot distribute bed nets to help stop the spread of malaria via mosquitoes.Â Brooke White and Justin Gaston take the stage live to do an Elvis song.
Once again, the lights are dimmed, and this time, Ryan asks the entire bottom row to join him on stage. Lee Dewyze, Siobhan Magnus, Katie Stevens, Michael Lynche, Tim Urban, and Crystal Bowersox are all reminded of the judges’ comments from the night before. After 34 million votes, Crystal, Siobhan, and Lee are told they are safe. It will be Tim, Michael, or Katie going home!
Adam Lambert takes the stage in true dramatic fashion next to perform his hit single, What Do You Want From Me. He is dressed in a metallic suit jacket and black leather pants and has the combed back Elvis-inspired hair from last night. Bathed in green lasers, Adam gives a compelling, but not overly edgy performance.
It’s time to find out who is going home. Tim is told to smile – he’s safe! Michael and Katie are the bottom two. Ryan announces that the person leaving the competition tonight is…Katie Stevens. Mike Lynche is safe. Katie takes the Idol stage one last time.
