First, Aerosmith is going on tour. Also, I will never understand Steven’s obsession with blouses. The Idols received tweets from their idols, except Deandre didn’t get a tweet, he got the person – a visit from Eric Benet. Deandre was kind of star struck.
FORD COMMERCIAL – I WANNA ROCK
So in a likely effort to actually keep people from fast forwarding through the Ford commercial, there is now a secret medallion hidden with the commercial and people can win prizes by finding it. Maybe you should just make the commercials more exciting…
RESULTS PART 1
Elise, Phillip, and Hollie are up first. Jimmy loved Elise, and spilled the beans on 80s night next week. Jimmy also was a big fan of Phillip. However, he thinks Hollie lacks the soul and emotional maturity of the other singers. Hollie (as predicted) makes her first appearance in the bottom 3. Elise and Phillip are safe.
Starship by Nicki Minaj
Um, seriously, I was scared for her and the potential wardrobe malfunction. And she wanted to take J Lo’s place behind the judges table. Hey Nicki, I hear that X Factor is hiring. Please send your resume to Simon Cowell.
RESULTS PART 2
Colton, Joshua, and Heejun are up next. Jimmy wasn’t a fan of Colton last night. He thought he was too emotional. With Joshua he had the same comment about being too emotional. And with Heejun, Jimmy agrees with me, saying that Heejun just isn’t as good of a singer as the other eight. Heejun is in the bottom 3, while Colton and Joshua are safe.
Watertower Town by Scotty McCreery
Typical Scotty. As on the show last season, there were no surprises with this performance. I have to give him props for going platinum, though. I guess he has a crazy fan base!
RESULTS PART 3
Skylar, Deandre, and Jessica are up last. Jimmy didn’t like the song for Skylar, but he likes her. He also feels Deandre is polarizing and could be in trouble. However, he is extremely on board with Jessica, and all but endorsed her for the winner. Jessica is safe. Deandre is safe. And Skylar is bottom 3. She can’t even get in the chair! Aw…
After the break, Skylar is sent back to safety, leaving Hollie and Heejun. But Heejun gets the boot. Well, it was basically a week overdue on this one. And the judges to not use their save. I’m pretty sure the only thing the judges discuss at the table is who is going to give the bad news…
HEADING HOME TONIGHT: HEEJUN HAN
I am actually quite pleased with these results. I would have expected a bounce back in votes since this week was such an improvement over last week. But it was far past his time to exit, and I’m glad he didn’t stick around at the expense of one of these young ladies who both have bigger vocal chops than Heejun ever will.
I think Skylar just had an off week and she will bounce back, but Hollie needs to use this bottom 3 warning and figure out who the heck she is…and quick. But honestly? I don’t know if there is time to do that. My gut tells me she and Deandre will be the next two heading home…
