Another good night on American Idol Season 11 last night as the Idols performed “songs of this decade” beautifully. Joshua Ledet, Jessica Sanchez, Skylar Laine and Colton Dixon were amazing. Elise Testone did well but did not have the standout moment she may need to make it into the top five. Phil Phillips and Hollie Cavanagh were enjoyable but did not reach the bar set by Joshua. Elise Testone and Hollie Cavanagh will probably be in the bottom two and either of them could go home tonight.
Christian musician Jennifer Hudson and Michael Durbin perform tonight so the entire hour should be entertaining, I guess in a gladiator sort of way. Take the ride with us as they build the bottom three. Remember, Jennifer Hudson was eliminated on this night several years ago and she has done all right.
So now American Idol starts building the bottom three with Hollie Cavanagh and Jessica Sanchez. Not much tension here. Hollie Cavanagh is starting a group but Ryan is not saying what the groups mean. Hollie on one side of the stage and Jessica on the other side. What could it mean?
James Durbin’s expression of his rock vision was pretty good and it sounds like it is popular too. Three weeks after release he has already sold 100,000 units. It is good to him doing well. If you remember, he was financially crippled while pursuing his rock dream.
We continue to form the two group dance with Phil Phillips and Elise Testone. Ryan sends Phillip to Hollie’s group and Elise joins Jessica. Will one of our Christian musicians be in the bottom three this week?
Joshua Ledet and Colton Dixon are next for results. Joshua joins Jessica and Elise while Colton joins Hollie and Phillip. Skylar Laine is the first performer to be safe and Ryan is asking her to pick the group she belongs to.
Oh my gosh, Joshua Ledet, Elise Testone and Jessica Sanchez are in the bottom three. Expect the judges to use their save tonight. This is a shocking travesty.
The first one to safety is Joshua Ledet, so Elise and Jessica are the bottom two. Jessica Sanchez is singing for her American Idol life. I predicted something like this but that does not mean it is right. The judges do not even let her finish her song before they save her.
Wow, tonight was shocking.
