American Idol Season 9 Top 24 Results Live Blog

So the critics are calling this the worst group of American Idol contestants ever.  I must admit the American Idol Season 9 started with a thud.  The performances were unimaginative at best, the sound was unprofessional and the judges seemed tired and bored.  Let’s give these aspiring artists a few more weeks before destroying their careers.  I will admit that I am pretty ticked-off about the last two nights.  I just gave up four hours of women’s bobsled, ice dancing and that thing where skiers slide up a hill and flip around in the air.  I will never get that back.

Tonight we find out who were the worst of the American Idol Season 9 performers, four will go home tonight.  At One21music we follow the Christian music artists competing on American Idol Season 9.  Seven Christian music artists are awaiting their fate tonight.  Michael Lynche, Didi Benami, Tim Urban, Lacey Brown, Michelle Delamor,  Jermiane Sellers and Ashley Rodriguez are on the block.  We hope all of them get another chance but I am worried about Tim Urban, Lacey Brown and Jermaine Sellers.

It must be exceedingly frustrating to go home tonight.  You cannot blame anyone but yourself but the performers must feel that they really did not get a chance to fully show what they can do.  Everyone can have a bad performance and you cannot judge a performer by any one good or bad performance.  No matter who goes home, I will feel bad for them.

And we are live on American Idol Season 9!  24 million people voted and Kris Allen will perform.  Ryan is right to point out that it is usually rough at this point of the season.

The Top 24 perform a group number, but I missed the song title and I don’t recognize it.  Is it “American Boy”?  Not a bad song, jazzy, and they are doing pretty well with it.  We do find out the Didi Benami cannot dance, she becomes more like Brooke White every time we see her.  My wife just informed me that the song was made popular by Estelle.

Let’s get started sending some girls home. Siobhan Magnus is safe.  Haeley Vaughn is safe.  Michelle Delamor must be safe and she is safe.  Katelyn Epperly sang “Oh Darling” and she is safe.  Uh oh, Katie Stevens and Janelle Wheeler are on the block.  It must be Janelle.  Yep, Janelle Wheeler goes home.  The Heart bomb blows up in her face. She seems to take it well.  Way to leave with dignity.

We get an Allison Iraheta sighting.  I can’t wait. She is singing her new single “Scars”.  This is an okay song, especially by American Idol alumni standards.  Not the best I have heard her sing, but I like Allison.

Christian music artists Didi Benami, Lacey Brown and Ashley Rodriquez remain on the block with Crystal Bowersox, Paige Miles and Lilly Scott.  I am worried about Lacey Brown I think it is either her or Paige Miles.

We jump right into the eliminations again.  Paige Miles is up and she stays another week, it is either Lacey or a surprise.  Lacey Brown is back for another week.  Who will be the surprise?  Lilly Scott is back for another week.  I think it will be Ashley Rodriguez is going home.  Crystal Bowersox is safe and we are down to Ashley and Didi BenamiAshley Rodriquez goes home.  What a surprise!  She is surprised and a little mad and struggling to hold it together.  So sad, our first Christian music artist goes home.  Good luck Ashley!

It is interesting that similar types are the first to be eliminated.  One of three blonde folk pop singers, Janelle Wheeler.  One of three R&B singers, Ashley Rodriguez goes home.  It is not fair but both of them split a voting block.

Now the guys are up and we start with Michael Lynche and he is safe. John Park survives a poor performance.  Aaron Kelly is surely safe and so he is.  Toddrick Hall took a big risk last night and he survives.  Tim Urban and Joe Munoz are side by side.  Christian music artist Tim Urban is safe.  Wow, he is in shock!  I can’t believe that Tim survived, I am so happy.  You get one more chance to prove Simon wrong.  Sorry Joe Munoz, I liked you.

After Kris Allen performs, Christian music artist Jermaine Sellers is on the hot seat with Casey James, Andy Garcia, Alex Lambert, Lee Dewyze and the bathrobe boy Tyler Grady.  I think Alex Lambert leaves us from that group but Jermaine Sellers could be a surprise departure tonight.  I hope not, I think he has more to bring than he showed last night.

After a one year break Idol Gives Back returns in April, but they are starting the focus with a report from Haiti by Kris Allen.  Kris’s performance is available in iTunes and all proceeds go to Haiti relief and you can donate online as well.  Kris is interpreting “Let It Be”.  Do you remember why you loved him so much last year?  Do you remember why you voted for him.  Go to iTunes and download this song.  Go to AmericanIdol.com and donate.  Great, great song performed well by last year’s American Idol.

Time to finish this agony.  Starting with Casey James and he is safe to be terrorized by Kara for another week.  Jermaine Sellers is safe for another week, yeah!  All of the Christian guys are through. Lee Dewyze is safe, as is Andy Garcia.  It is down to Alex Lambert and Tyler Grady.  It could be Tyler but I would be surprised.  I think Alex Lambert is going home but I am wrong.  Tyler Grady is going home.  What a surprise.  He is now criticizing the judges.  Bad form dude.

We finish the evening with a montage of the four who are going home.  I really disagree with America about Ashley and I am shocked by Tyler’s exit.

Check back this weekend and I will preview next week’s show and then we will be here live blogging all three of next week’s shows of American Idol Season 9.
