After tonight's Idol, who will be "Staying Alive?"
‘Idol’ contestants test their moves in disco week
Last week was a first, with the judges allowing the bottom vote getter — Matt Giraud — back into the “American Idol” fold.
The judges have saved Matt Giraud, and no one was booted off “American Idol” tonight. Matt Giraud received the least amount of votes, just as I predicted in my blog Tuesday night, but the dueling piano man from Kalamazoo, Mich., will get a second chance to win over America. I believe he can do it, but as Simon said, it will be hard since next week is disco week.
I am excited to say I will be singing in Chattanooga this week.
MacIntyre gone, but cream of the crop remains
Scott MacIntyre, who was eliminated from “American Idol” in last week’s show, should have a future in the business with his singing or playing ability.
After a night packed full of show stopping performances by several contestants which included a standing ovation for Adam Lambert by Simon Cowell, there was little doubt that Scott MacIntyre and Lil Rounds would be in the bottom three for tonight’s elimination.
I am honored tonight to be hosting Felicia Barton (who was a semi-finalist this year on Idol) at my home with her husband and two-year-old son. As our kids are running around the house screaming and making messes together, she is giving me the scoop on the contestants that are still in the competition.
Last night, “American Idol” finalists enjoyed an open book of song possibilities. Adam Lambert and Danny Gokey shined as usual, while dark horse Kris Allen made another step toward the top of the pack with a brilliant arrangement of “Ain’t No Sunshine.”
Tonight’s theme was based on the most popular digital songs.
Sarver departure predictable
There were a couple of surprises last week, as well as a couple of disappointments.
Michael Sarver did not ask for clemency despite his song choice, "Ain't Too Proud to Beg" and was the latest American Idol to be axed.
American Idol’s Top 10 grooved to 50 years worth of Motown hits with Smokey Robison mentoring tonight’s show.
Alexis Grace is the latest axed from “American Idol.” The judges told the pink-and-blonde-haired mom from Memphis that if she impressed while singing her farewell song, they would use their new power to save only one contestant the entire season.
American Idol has gone country, choosing tonight’s songs from the catalogues of the Grand Ole Opry’s members. I have had the honor of singing on the Grand Ole Opry stage several times, a highlight of my career! The Opry has been very good to us Idol alumni. Carrie Underwood was inducted into this exclusive club last year and many of my peers, including Kellie Pickler, Bucky Covington and Josh Gracin, are regular guests.
