of 12: Year Of Your Birth
there internet. It's Chico Alexander alongside Jason
Block, and to say yesterday was interesting would be an
Jason: We thought it was going to be a round of 12. We
planned for a round of 12.
Chico: That's what we planned for, but with the
unexpected DQ of Jermaine Jones, we have a round of 11.
With one performance strictly for show. We'll talk more
about the decision to air out that process in its
entirety this weekend on WLTI, but right now we're just
concentrating on the results. Who was the year of their
birth kind to this year?
Jason: Honestly...some. Not all. But now...
THIS........is AMERICAN IDOL. We are live from Hollywood
Chico: Yes sir. We got a little results.
Jason: We have Demi Lovato.
Chico: We got a little Daughtry...
Jason: And we have spots on the tour bus.
Chico: Ten seats on the bus. Meanwhile, Jennifer Lopez
on the cover of Vogue... and on a cover of a new single,
March 29. Hey did you know we have an image advisor this
year? And it's none other than Tommy Hilfiger.
Jason: He needed a job after "The Cut" LOL. But this is
a good fit.
Chico: He needs an emotional transplant. He wants to
transform the contestants by the time they hit the
Jason: From an image and fashion perspective.
Chico: Right. Okay, let's talk the bottom three... Time
for another round of...
SAFE / TROUBLE / OUT.
Chico: Jason, your three and show your work, please
Jason: You just want the three?
Chico: All we have time for.
Jason: Deandre's performance was boring and sleep
inducing, Shannon was too small for the song, and Heejun
was a breathy mess.
Chico: I had the same three, believe it or not.
Jason: Shannon and Deandre are in the bottom two. And
Shannon goes home.
Chico: That's where we differ. I think Heejun has the
emotional authenticity of a brick.
Jason: Yes. Oh and no save this week.
Chico: He and Shannon are your bottom. Now to a Ford
Jason: To Ghost Town
Chico: by Shiny Toy Guns. Remember not to cross the
Jason: And BTW...someone was in there before he got
kicked :-) Okay, SL/SM time.
Chico: First up, Phillip, Skylar, Elise and Joshua. I
betcha they're all safe, but let's take a look at the
Jason: I sense all four on the tour.
Chico: Phillip had "Hard to Handle"... and was amazing.
Jason: Right in his wheelhouse.
Chico: Jimmy says that he went far beyond the call of
Jason: Skylar's Love snuck up on her.
Chico: Skylar went the country rock route with Bonnie
Raitt's "Love Sneakin' Up On You"
Jason: Great performance there too.
Chico: Jimmy thinks that she's better than she was last
night, but that song wasn't for her. Elise wants to
stay... together. Another good, raspy performance. She
was very believable. Joshua Ledet gets the crown last
night for "When a Man Loves a Woman".
Jason: It was over the top.
Chico: That's worth a plate of crawfish.
Jason: And a spot on the bus.
Chico: Joshua's had a moment. After an email from Percy
Sledge (yes, THAT Percy Sledge)... Joshua... is going
Chico: ... and so is Phillip!
Jason: Right on.
Chico: ... and so is Skylar. Elise is in the bottom
Jason: Stunned actually.
Chico: Well, I am, but I ain't.
Chico: You can have voices, but you need votes. But if I
can be blunt for a moment. I honestly think NO ONE goes
Jason: That's what I think too.
Chico: Because that's how it's been for a long time.
Someone gets ejected, the rest of the field gets a save.
Idol only goes on as long as it has to. No more, no
less. I've been reading a lot of items, and they all
seem to gloss over that fact. Back to the stage we go,
as we have the new single from Demi Lovato, "Give Your
Heart a Break".
Jason: And yes, she is LIVE. And...holy young adult
Chico: ... she's a little pitchy, dawg.
Jason: This is from her 2nd album "Unbroken". You know
how to get it.
Jason: Itunes, Amazon the whole nine
Chico: Good stuff
Jason: and there's the album as we go to break :-) More
Chico: Back to business... Colton, Shannon, Deandre, and
Jessica are next.
Jason: Serious lights, serious music with the Jimmy
Chico: Deandre had "Endless Love"... we didn't. It was
the wrong song, but ultimately it was Deandre's choice.
Colton had "Broken Heart". It was an okay song choice
for him, and he did it okay. Jimmy disagrees... he
thought it was the wrong song. Jason said... too
obscure. Shannon did not have "One Sweet Day". It was
all over the place for me. Her voice was too weak. Jimmy
said she pushed too hard yesterday. Jessica Sanchez
"Turn the Beat Around"... and it didn't work for her. Oh
god did it not work for her.
Jason: I thought it did.
Chico: SL/SM time. Colton... is on the bus.
Jason: And Ryan...stop with the swerves. Jessica is on
Chico: .... Deandre... is on the bus. So Shannon joins
Elise in the bottom three.
Jason: Got one :-)
Jason: Ah Jennifer :-)
Chico: I could say something about something else in
Jason: And now from "Break the Spell", "Outta My Head"
Chico: Someone who was on the bus in season 5...
Chico: My dad's a fan of his.
Jason: I am a fan :-)
Chico: Me too. I gotta support a fellow Tar Heel. Okay,
the album is "Break the Spell". The tour is
forthcoming... Buffalo, March 20.
Jason: Be there.
Chico: Results time. Now it's Erika, Heejun, and Hollie.
Jason: Hollie blew out Celine.
Chico: Celine who? I think Hollie puts the rest of the
girls on notice. As for Heejun... he just blew.
Jason: Then there's Heejun...OUCH.
Chico: There's already an Asian pop star, Jimmy... Far
Jason: Like a G6
Chico: Erika Van Pelt was not in "Heaven" either. She
overthought that. And she overarranged that. And
oversang. Hollie... GET ON THE BUS! Erika.... get on the
Chico: Heejun is on the bus. I don't know how, but
that's the vote.The bottom three tonight..
ELISE TESTONE, ERIKA VAN PELT, and SHANNON MAGRANE
Jason: Shannon goes home.
Chico: ... Elise gets another shot. She's SAFE. That
leaves Shannon and Erika in the bottom two. Can't say
Jason: Nope. Erika was #4. And BTW...the reason why
people are voting for Heejun...Asian. Nothing more.
Chico: Okay... Serious time... On tour tonight....
ERIKA! Shannon Magrane will sing for her life. I still
think she gets saved somehow. The song... "One Sweet
Jason: nope. she goes. ouch.....wow. not good.
Chico: Yikes. Let's go to the judges... And it's the end
of the line for Shannon.
Jason: Not a shock.
Chico: That's weird. Not a shock, but weird. This is
definitely a departure from SOP.
Jason: There will be a non-elimination week somewhere
Chico: there has to be.
Jason: So who does this help? Every female to be honest.
Chico: Yep. We'll have more about this this week on WLTI.
In the meanwhile, we're going to call it a night. Thanks
for watching. Thanks for voting. And don't forget to
support local & independent music. Good night, America!
Jason: Good night!
