Round of 10: The 21st Century - Results -
We celebrated all things 21st century on American
Idol last time, but one singer is "So Yesterday." We'll find out who in a
moment, but first...
An idol's life is a busy one, with rehearsals,
press conferences, and of course the occasional performance. One of their
highlights this week? Because this is Fox, a private screening of the new movie
"Ice Age: The Meltdown."
It's like one big happy family... but there's
going to be one more empty seat at the dinner table tonight.
After a Ford video ("Give a Little Love"), we get
what seasoned professionals of the 21st century can do. That's right... A live
performance coming. This week, it's international multi-platinum artists Shakira
and Wyclef, singing "Hips Don't Lie" off of the Oral Fixation, vol. 2 album.
After that... a recap of last night. Song choice
was not on par according to Randy.
Simon rips Kellie, Lisa, and Bucky a new one on
that, while Taylor was compared to Clay Aiken.
Meanwhile, Katharine scored a hit, while Chris
was mixed. Paris got Randy moved, while Simon thought it was a little girl
pretending to be Beyonce.
It's result time... Three people have the lowest
Bottom row... Mandisa... Chris... Kellie...
Taylor... Paris.... All safe.
Top row... Elliott, who holds his ears... The
judges disagreed on the arrangement... but loved the voice. He's safe.
Lisa did not impress the judges. She was in the
bottom three for the last two weeks. She... is in the bottom three again.
Ace disappointed the judges with his song choice.
He joins Lisa in the bottom three.
Which leaves us with Katharine and Bucky.
Katharine impressed the judges. Bucky didn't exactly wow the toughest room...
So joining Ace and Lisa in the bottom three....
is Katharine. Unhappiness and shock abound, but remember the Tim Connolly rule:
you can't complain if you don't vote.
That said, it's time to send one person back to
That person... is Ace. That leaves Katharine and
Lisa as your bottom two.
Simon: "I watched the show back last night. Any
of this lot could have been in the bottom two. It was a really poor performance.
The public knows best. I have absolutely no problem with this bottom three."
Paula: "America votes. Keep that finger dialing."
Randy: "Whoever goes home tonight, those votes
are going to somebody. You're never really safe. You gotta be great every time.
Pick better songs!"
Lisa thinks that whatever happens happens...
Katharine is a bit surprised, but again, whatever happens happens.
That said... the person leaving tonight on
American Idol is.... Lisa Tucker. Katharine is safe.
As we get Lisa's funeral dirge, what happens?
Well, Randy says that Lisa's vote has to go somewhere, and the most likely
candidates are Mandisa and Paris. Meanwhile, I expect Katharine's fanbase to
come out of the woodwork to support their heroine.
But how long will that support last? The quest
for a title marches on. Next time... We play som'n' country. In the meantime,
Lisa sings us out with "Because of You."
