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 6: Bacharach & David Songbook
April 11

The soundtracks were provided by Burt Bacharach & Hal David. The talent was provided by the Top 6. The result is provided by America. Will the Save be provided by the judges? All these questions, plus TWO, TWO, TWO people who took the title come home. .... and Kevin Bacon. If it's Thursday, it's RESULT NIGHT.

First, the Top 6 break into a medley of Bacharach & David hits, including "You'll Never Get to Heaven", "I Just Don't Know What to Do With Myself", "Always Something There to Remind Me", "This Guy's In Love With You", "One Less Bell to Answer", "This House Is Not a Home", and of course, "That's What Friends Are For". Notice I never said "singing".

This week's Ford Fiesta Mission... a ripoff of Top Gear's Kia Rio soccer challenge. Winners: the BBC once they get ahold of the tape.

Jimmy Iovine, please save us.

KREE: "Another great vocal performance, but if she wants to win this thing, we need to see more personality."

ANGIE: "Angie did a very confident job. Is it enough to win the night? Not for me."

LAZARO: "Hit me like an Ambien milkshake." Then... "If I had to chart them this week, I'd put him 10th." There're only six singers, Jimmy. "Yes. I know."

First round of SLSM.

They're doing near-side, far-side, middle-side. Imagine this webpage is the stage...

(STAGE RIGHT) Angie.... Lazaro.... Kree (STAGE LEFT)

Next, an IDOL UPDATE: the pride and joy of Garner, North Carolina, a former baseball player who just happened to sing... fresh from the campus of NC State and that Bojangles' commercial, performing his new single, "See You Tonight"... Baby lock them doors and turn the lights down low, it's the 10th American Idol, SCOTTY MCCREERY!

AT&T is giving you the scorers chair. Go to AmericanIdol.com for more info. Back to Jimmy...

JANELLE: "She's taking literal interpretations. That's not going to work." She joins... ANGIE.

CANDICE: "Candice is leading this thing." Then... "She's got more than a great voice. She's got a great sense of what she wants to sing." She joins... KREE.

That leaves Amber to join Lazaro. Jimmy said... "Amber, keep doing what you're doing."

Chico's Prediction: Candice and Kree are your bottom two. Judges ready the Save.

Next up, though... a break. Let's go back to 2001, when Ryan and some Dunkleman met a waitress from Texas... and the rest is HER story. Coming full circle with "People Like Us" from the "Greatest Hits: Chapter One" album... people of the game show web, I give you... the original American Idol... KELLY CLARKSON!

Oooh.. glowsticks.

Back to business....

TOP 2: ... KREE & CANDICE (C-Note: Well I suck.)



(C-Note: things that go on during the AI break: I update the site, play a round of "What's The Phrase", message my ex/platonic friend, and massage my arm from going to the gym today. Damn you, Rudy.)

It's time for the results.

Singing for their life tonight... over 34 million votes later.... is LAZARO ARBOS. His chosen weapon... "Feelin' Good" by Michael Buble.

You know how I feel. It's time... The Twittersphere says #IdolSave. Let's go to the panel... Randy?

"We will NOT be using the Save tonight."

That leaves five women to fight it out for the title. The claws are going to come out in full force. Until next week, support local & independence music!
