In the world's ultimate talent search, where the eyes of a nation are upon the best undiscovered singers in the country, where the audience has the power to make or break you, and where a million-dollar recording contract is on the line, there is only one rule: If you can sing it, bring it.

Round of 10: Billy Joel
March 22

Chico: Last night... we were treated to the songs of the Piano Man. But who sang a sweet Lullaby that was Light as the Breeze, and who, in all Honesty, should jump in a River of Dreams?
Jason: Nice one.
Chico: ... and who.... is Movin' Out?
Jason: That is because... THIS.......is American Idol.
Chico: let'sgo! Tonight on the showgram... Haley Reinhart live... Lana Del Rey taped....
Jason: While the credits roll...who you got?
Chico: First of all, the Stone Cold Lock of the Century... of the Week... goes to Jessica. She NAILED IT. AGAIN. The bottom three... Elise, Erika, and DeAndre. OUT: DeAndre.
Jason: Jessica is the Stone Cold Lock of the week. But I call that performance indulgent.
Chico: Of course. Because she's not singing to us, she's singing AT us.
Jason: TROUBLE - Heejun, Deandre, Erika. Bottom Two - Deandre, Heejun. Out - Deandre. That's what I have. You have Elise and I have Heejun
Chico: We'll see.
Jason: And NO SAVE.
Chico: Right. NOW... the Final 10 go a cappella... sort of... with For the Longest Time
Jason: You mean sync-a-pella
Chico: Did I tell you that this was my first ever Achordants solo?
Jason: You just did :-)
Chico: ... Either Erika dyed her hair or Heejun got a sex change.
Jason: How about both? :-)
Chico: The background is synched, the solo is all live suck. Good ending, though.
Jason: I think we have time for SL/SM
Chico: But first... A Ford Music Video! "You Found Me" by the ORIGINAL... American Idol... And for my money, STILL THE BEST.
Jason: Kelly Clarkson
Chico: Alright. Here's the deal. Survive this week, and you're in the American Idol House. First up, Hollie, Skylar, and Elise.
Jason: Elise is taking a seat...but Jimmy says?
Chico: It was her worst night, as she overthought the song. It was a sweet deer caught in the headlights moments. Skylar took a song that Garth covered off of Billy and was "Shameless". She's consistent, but she needs to be creative. She's starting to stall. She has to grow. The run was not needed. Elise picked the right song in Vienna, but executed only so much. But Jimmy thinks that Elise is going to the top. Kieran... SL, SM!
Jason: Hollie is...HOUSE BOUND.
Chico: Joining her...Skylar. So Elise is in the bottom 3... Kidding. She's SAFE!
Jason: All good so far. Now, with "VIdeo Games" ...here is Lana Del Rey. From the album "Born to Die"
Chico: Good album that. A little premature for confetti, isn't it? :-)
Jason: Not a fan of her style mind you.
Chico: Meanwhile... we have a birthday boy in the house!
Jason: And its Steven...
Chico: ... and his friend Joe Perry... and they share a tender moment. Awwwwwwwww. I have a text from Gordon. "Barf."
Jason: LOL: Really?
Chico: No. Next, Deandre, Joshua, and... umm... who? Oh, Jessica Deandre went all over the place with "Only the Good Die Young". A propos. This was not his best night. Joshua put a gospel twinge on "She's Got A Way" But he OVERSANG the heck out of it. Jessica... Wow.
Jason: Done. Huge.
Chico: Simple song, expanded. Great time. A's across the board. Jessica... is going to the house! Not the house, mind you... THE HOUSE.
Jason: With approval from the man himself.
Chico: Joshua... is going with her. And DeAndre.... is in the bottom 3.
Jason: Not a shock
Chico: No sir. Next... who wants to hear Haley Reinhart! In a cage!
Jason: I do...and it's "FREE"
Chico: Damn straight... Ain't NO ONE charging for it. :-)
Jason: And that was....ok
Chico: It was.... Haley.
Jason: Where did she finish?
Chico: Third, I believe. The single's on iTunes.
Jason: Back on Idol
Chico: The other four are called...
Jason: Who are...
Chico: Colton with Piano Man... nailed it. Colton killed it. Everything about it was right. Phillip is moving out ... ... Phillip needed to take the advice he was given. Erika... didn't need to look or sound like Vickie Sue Robinson. And Heejun... with Ray Chew on the piano...... Seriously, mate? Honestly?
Jason: Sanjaya 2.0
Chico: Somewhere Tom Hanks and Peter Scolari are going... NO. "Four minutes of a bad Adam Sandler movie." Colton.... IS SAFE.
Jason: Colton got messed with...AGAIN.
Chico: After slight ribbing.
Jason: He got Ryan-rolled.
Chico: Erika... is in the bottom three. Maracas. Live Television. Heejun was Heejun. And now Heejun is in the bottom three. Jason nails it.
Jason: I nailed all three. UP TOP
Chico: Word.
Jason: What? Deandre goes home to the Idol House?
Chico: Yep.
Jason: And Heejun is safe?
Chico: Yep. Erika Van Pelt... is singing for her life with "I Believe In You and Me".
Jason: You know what...I would use the save here.
Chico: I think the judges pass on this. Sounds like a horse's laugh.
Jason: Bad choice, but ok. Just goes to show you that racism is alive and well here on Idol.
Chico: I have no idea what you're talking about, but I guess I'm going to hear about it on WLTI this weekend.
Jason: :-)
Chico: Okay, next week, nine enter, one leaves, in the hunger game that is American Idol. Until then, remember to support local & independent music.
