Round of 11: British Invasion - Results -
Gordon: This is Gordon Pepper, and I want to know
if they feel like they've been invaded by Britain
Jason: Yes....I have...They want to name a section of New York Little Britain.
Gordon: We're here to see who gets to play the last fighter in the movie '300'.
We start with our own Brooklyn warrior, Mr. Jason Block.
Gordon: Next up, the person who is patiently waiting for Canadian Idol to start,
Don 'Donut Destroyer' Harpwood
Don: Yep. Definitely waiting.
Gordon: Finally, we have our own Musical Vizier, the wise Grandma Pepper
Jason: Hey GP.
Grandma: Let the crying begin. Hope none us are are the people who are crying
Jason: I don't think so.
Gordon: And our late-comer, the Puerto Rican Powerhouse, Mr. Anthony Rojas
Anthony: Half Puerto Rican. Don't forget Dominican.
Gordon: Ok, Let's get into...
SAFE TROUBLE OUT!
Gordon: We start with...
Grandma: Good show opener. She even got Simon's attention. Safe
Jason: Best performance of her career. Safe.
Don: Safe. I was actually surprised at how well she did.
Anthony: safe surprisingly
Gordon: I think she got half of America's attention with her...assets. Oh yes,
she can sing, too. Safe.
Chico: Good start to the show. Haleys safe and Simons a pervert.
Grandma: Safe. Much better this week.
Jason: Great ballad...SAFE.
Don: He needed a good performance, and he got it. Safe.
Gordon: Safe...for now. I was not as enthused with it as you guys were.
Chico: Someone finally clued him into the KISS rule... Keep it Simple, Stupid.
Safe. But Im thinking that he needs to find another look other than Justin
Timberlake in deep thought.
Jason: She is safe. I thought it was 3 in a row.
Jason: Good stuff.
Anthony: Too good to leave now
Gordon: Oh I beg to differ. She was not good, and the weakest in a pool of
strong R&B artists. Trouble.
Don: I don't know why, but I'm thinking out.
Grandma: She can do a lot better, and I hope she does, starting next week. Ok
for now. Safe.
Chico: of all the female singers, Stephanie is the one that changed the LEAST.
Her sharpness and her unwillingness to do anything outside the box will spell
the end for her. Trouble.
Jason: TROUBLE. This was a bad bad performance. But he won't be leaving this
Gordon: Jason, what have you been smoking?
Anthony: Still gonna get votes from the smaller age group
Grandma: Vast improvement. Safe
Gordon: He had a great performance. The kiddies will vote for him. And that is
going to spell disaster for someone else. Safe.
Chico: Back. Safe. Needs to watch the castrato though.
Don: Safe, though she could have done better last night.
Grandma: Watch your song choices, Lakisha. You are too good of a performer to
lose your edge. Safe, of course.
Chico: Shes flirting with mediocrity... Anyway, she rushes a beat a bit, and
flat at times, but its not bad. Points for taking James Bond into her fold.
Safe. Almost reminds me of Chakas rendition of Licence to Kill.
Jason: Brilliant stuff...and I love Shirley Bassey. Safe.
Gordon: I think she needed to take a risk and sing outside of the box. I think
on any other night, she has the show's best performance, but she's only third
best this evening. Safe though.
Grandma: I agree with Simon. Out.
Jason: TROUBLE. This was Constantine Maroulis's performance times 10.
Gordon: I think that if he was not in trouble last week, he's gone this week.
However, his fans knew he was in trouble, and they will be voting in droves to
keep him in. That will be good enough to keep him in the competition, but not
good enough to get him out of the bottom 3. Trouble.
Chico: Bad choice of song but good way to sell it, but the vocals were murder.
Simons right. He needs grit for a song like that. Trouble.
Jason: 2nd best performance of the night...WAY safe.
Anthony: getting better
Grandma: Jordin is here to stay. I love her. Safe.
Gordon: I think she was the best performance of the night. I also think that
Lakisha and Melinda better be very careful, or one of them is not making the Top
Chico: Shes making the other women stand and take notice. Safe.
Jason: Brutally bad. OUT.
Don: Trouble. I think he might once again barely survive. Barely.
Grandma: Forget the girl. I was crying at the way he was butchering that
terrific song. Sadly, the little girl in the audience cried for the wrong
reasons. Unfortunately, despite the weakness, I see him staying another week,
but barely. Trouble.
Chico: That song kicked his butt. Out
Gordon: I think that Sanjaya's ship sailed last week, when everyone knew he was
in trouble and he came in second to last. I don't see how this week helps him.
Jason: Safe, but barely.
Grandma: Not my favorite performance. Trouble.
Don: Now, I'm a fan of rockers, and I think she'll survive this week. But after
last night, I fear that she may be taking a dip into the bottom 3. Trouble.
Gordon: Safe, BUT, if Sanjaya's and/or Phil's posse gets them out of the Top 3,
Gina comes down to play instead.
Chico: I dont think lyrics were a problem so much as pitch was. Safe this week,
but not as good as last.
Grandma: Certainly an improvement over last week. Safe.
Gordon: This is why Sanjaya is going home. He needed the people in front of him,
like Chris, to continue being bad. Unfortunately for him, Chris, like Haley, was
on top of his game. Safe.
Chico: Another one whos back. Safe
Grandma: As Long As He Needs Me. What a song!!!!! Safe!!!!!
Don: Definitely safe.
Chico: Come on
what do you think Im going to say here. SAFE!
Jason: safe safe safe
Gordon: And we're...live! Someone's going back to reality. And missing out on a
nice contract with the Idol Top 10 Tour.
Grandma: This time, the little ones was crying for the right reasons.
Gordon: We get Randy, Simon and Paula. We also get a recap...The British invaded
Idol, Peter Noone and Lulu taught, Haley made Simon's night, Lakisha says she
looked good... Chris gets tender, Sanjaya made a girl cry, and him, Phil and
Gina made us all cry, and Jordin gave us goose bumps. We get Peter Noone singing
'There's a Kind of Hush'. No clue if the crying girl is out in the audience
Grandma: I think he's terrific
Anthony: ZZZZZZZZ. I don't think I was born when this song came out
Gordon: Well, someone is going to be hushed on a permanent basis in around 20
Gordon: And the Idolers go to the laundromat.
Jason: Good Clean Fun
Gordon: But who will be sent to the cleaners? Being judged is...Brad Garrett?
Don: Brad Garrett, eh? Must be because a show of his is following Idol.
Anthony: great show
Gordon: And Brad gets thrown off the stage.
Anthony: Till Death.
Gordon: Phil, Melinda and Blake all stand.
Jason: Oh boy
Anthony: And sit right back down ...safe.
Gordon: Chris, Lakisha and Jordin all stand up.
Anthony: And sit right back down ...safe
Gordon: That leaves Sanjaya, Haley and Gina...who...sit down?
Jason: America is a bunch of idiots!
Gordon: Chris Richardson and Stephanie are...your bottom two.
Anthony: No bottom 3 this week, I guess.
Jason: Fix...Bull crap...Dumbasses. I don't believe this at all.
Anthony: maybe Stephanie's R&B fans went to Jordin.
Gordon: No doubt about it. Stephanie being in the bottom two is clearly because
you have too many R&B singers in the competition.
Jason: Does not matter. This is just bull.
Gordon: As for Chris Richardson...well, now we see where Sanjaya is getting his
votes from. Sanjaya better pray that Chris leaves tonight.
Jason: You know what, I want Sanjaya to win this whole thing now. So this whole
program can be brought down in flames.
Gordon: Honestly, Jason - did you really think either Stephanie or Chris had a
shot to win the competition?
Jason: No. But that doesn't matter.
Anthony: Remember who some of the fans are
Gordon: Idol Challenge. Did Fantasia, Paris Bennett or Vonzell Solomon just get
cast for The Color Purple? (Psst...it was Fantasia). While Lulu gets to sing
now, we see if Jason has calmed down at all
Jason: I am not calm...Sanjaya for Idol!
Grandma: Love that little Lulu. Hope the crowd took notes.
Gordon: The audience is booing the fact that Stephanie and Chris are both up
Jason: They should.
Gordon: 30 million votes. and Chris...is staying
Gordon: Stephanie is leaving, and it's not that much of a shock.
Jason: It is to me.
Gordon: It's not a fix. Stephanie was not very good, and the weakest of 4 R&B
singers in a crowded field.
Jason: Yes she was. Sorry. I don't believe the results.
Gordon: THIS is why you diversify. You can not keep singing R&B in a field where
the three competitors are better than you are.
Gordon: Final Thoughts?
Jason: You know mine...Sanjaya for Idol.
Anthony: America is unpredictable this year
Gordon: I didn't think it was that unpredictable.
Anthony: Of course not. We don't live in Gordon's world
Grandma: Whether they stay or they go, they can only be ahead with the
experiences and opportunities that they are open to them.
Gordon: And looking at the points...oh look, Jason and Anthony didn't get any.
And Kudos to Donut, who got Stephanie correct.
TROUBLE: Chris R. OUT: Stephanie
Grandma Pepper: 4
Don: Can't wait to see what happens next week.
Anthony: Bottom 2 next week?
Gordon: I think Sanjaya needs all the help he can get. Him and Phil will be
fighting to stay alive.
Jason: That I agree.
Gordon: And I think it was intentional that they only announced the bottom two -
because I think Sanjaya was the third spot and they don't want the troops
Jason: That I also agree.
Gordon: OK. This is Gordon Pepper for the rest of us, saying Game Over
Jason: Good night.
