of 10: Billy Joel
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
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.
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
Jason: You just did :-)
Chico: ... Either Erika dyed her hair or Heejun got a
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.
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
Jason: What? Deandre goes home to the Idol House?
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
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.
Chico: Okay, next week, nine enter, one leaves, in the
hunger game that is American Idol. Until then, remember
to support local & independent music.
