Last night on FOX‘s American Idol, the remaining finalists impressed the judges with performances of current songs. Tonight, it was time to find out who won your votes! Was your favorite sent packing? Read on for all the highlights!
American Idol was back tonight with the results of your votes, but first it was a performance of Pink’s Raise Your Glass by the top seven, which did not seem very impressive by some. After the Ford music video, which was corny, both Hollie Cavanaugh and Colton Dixon received fan mail with prom invitations! Hollie and Jessica were the first up to hear their fate, and Jimmy thought that Hollie was dry and stiff, but Jessica killed it. Ryan Seacrest then sent Jessica Sanchez to one side of the stage and Hollie Cavanaugh to the other – am I the only one who hates when he does that?
James Durbin, our favorite rocker from last season was back tonight with a performance of Higher Than Heaven off his new album, and in my opinion, James sounded nothing like the same guy from last season. Elise Testone and Phillip Phillips were up next to hear their fate, and Ryan placed Elise in Jessica’s group, and Phillip in Hollie’s group, and immediately I knew exactly where this was going.
Another Idol alum, Jennifer Hudson then took the stage with Ne-Yo and Rick Ross perform their new single, Think Like a Man. Colton Dixon and Joshua Ledet were up next, and of course, Jimmy Iovine thought Joshua nailed it – do I even have to tell you which group that Colton ended up in? Yep, not surprisingly, Joshua ended up up with Jessica and Elise.
Skylar Laine was all alone until Ryan announced that she was safe, and then asked her to choose which group she belonged with. As all the contestants normally do, Skylar refused, but then Ryan walked her over to Colton, Hollie, and Phillip! America got it wrong this week? At this point, we were certain the judges would use their save tonight.
Joshua Ledet was safe, and then Ryan announced that Elise Testone was also safe! In a shocker reminiscent of Pia Toscano last season, it was Jessica Sanchez who was the bottom contestant tonight. Jessica did not even get a chance to finish her song before Jennifer Lopez jumped on stage and shouted that the judges would be using their save tonight. Randy backed her up: “we are saving Jessica tonight without a doubt,” and he then begged America to please start voting for the best.
