Last night, the top five took the stage on American Idol with tunes from the sixties, as well as British pop tunes. Tonight, the votes were tallied and the top four were revealed, but did your favorite make it? Read on for all the highlights!
American Idol was back tonight with the results of your votes after last night’s performances. As the judges graced us with their presence, I could not take my eyes off of Steven Tyler – does he ever dress without being gaudy? Jennifer came out in shimmer, and Steven doubled the shimmer, almost as if he had to show her up. Joshua Ledet hit the stage first, and it came as no shocker that he was the first contestant who made it into the final four!
Ryan Seacrest was overly excited to let us know that Coldplay would be performing, not once, but twice tonight. Coldplay took the stage with Paradise, and to be honest, I was not sure what all the excitement was about. Phillip Phillips and Hollie Cavanaugh were called to the stage next, and I think most of us knew where it was going. Hollie Cavanaugh was then sent to the bottom two, and not surprisingly, Phillip Phillips was the next finalist heading to the top four.
Carrie Underwood made her way back to the American Idol stage with her new single Blown Away. It was a powerful performance, and a great tune. Jessica Sanchez and Skylar Laine were up next to find out which one of them would be in the top four. Both of these ladies are so great, I couldn’t even imagine one of them being in the bottom, but after all, it is coming down to the end. Jimmy Iovine clearly feels that Jessica is the best singer in the competition, but she blew it last night. Did you agree? Jessica Sanchez was safe, but Skylar Laine was sent to join Hollie in the bottom two.
After another performance by Coldplay, it was time to find out who would be moving on, and would be heading home. The judges all agreed that they have never had a better top five, than these five contestants. In a shocker, it was Hollie Cavanaugh who made the top four, which meant that Skylar Laine was heading home this week!
Stay tuned tomorrow for our elimination interview with Skylar Laine!
