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.

April 21

Gordon: This is Gordon Pepper, and we sympathize with all of you. We don't want to go through a bloated 2.5 hour special of Idol Gives Back as much as you do.
Chico: Well, Gordon... It's good news. We don't have to.
Gordon: We are going to do something special for you this evening. Call it WLTI Gives Back.
Chico: Yep.
Gordon: but first...

Chico: Okay, we have everyone's picks. Player by player or panelist by panelist?
Gordon: Panelist by Panelist

Gordon: Now who wants reaults?
Chico: I do1
Gordon: Your bottom 3 is first between Crystal and Casey.

Gordon: Next up; either Aaron or Lee is in the bottom.
Chico: I bet Aaron's in the bottom.
Gordon: You'd be right.
Chico: Wee!
Gordon: Finally, Siobhan, Mike and Tim
Chico: .... I'll bet on Tim.
Gordon: Right again! So we have Tim, Aaron and Casey in the bottom.
Chico: Unlike previous Idol Give Backs, one of them IS going home tonight.
Gordon: Not going hom4 is...Aaron, who gets to go back to the happy couch.
Chico: That leaves Tim and Casey.
Gordon: So either Casey is out, which means that Jason is right, or Tim is out and everyone else is right. I'll bet on Tim and everyone else.
Chico: Me too. And leaving after a historic week on American Idol... is....


Chico: TIM.
Gordon: Look Jason's wrong. Again. Surprise.
Chico: So we end the show with Will Young singing... to Tim.

Gordon: Casue as much as we make fun of Idol Gives Back, we do ask you to support the charities they represent.
Chico: Indeed we do. Can we go back to being selfish bastards now?
Gordon: Yes, please. Next week: Country music and Shania Twain.
Chico: Should be fun.
Gordon: Or Painful. Or both.
Chico: Yes and yes. Until then, he's Gordon, I'm Chico. Remember to support your favorite cause... as well as local and independent music. :-)
