With yet another dramatic montage, promising – “You won’t believe who is going home”, the top 11 elimination show from American Idol made it’s way on air. Usually, I would dismiss that kind of hype out of hand, but after last week’s save of Casey, I was a bit concerned heading in to the elimination show this week. Did America get the wake-up call last week? With over 55 million votes cast, it appeared that it had – but whom did everyone vote for? Cue the lights, roll the music – it was time to find out who made it to the top 9 this year.
I said yesterday, and last week as well, that I have not been as emotional invested in the contestants this year on Idol. I wanted to have a “moment” last night and I didn’t. Well, tonight I finally felt that connection that I have been looking for all season. The funny thing was – it came in the elimination show, not the performance show. Who did I connect with? It might not be who you think.
Only one week to go and, I have to say, I’m still waiting for the one big “Moment” from American Idol this season. We are down to the top 3 and while I still watch the show each week, I can’t say that I’m nearly as invested in these contestants as I have been in the past. That being said, we are still getting ready to crown this year’s winner, so there is at least a modicum of excitement in the air. Who will it be – Lee, Crystal, or Casey? This…is my American Idol recap.
Well, another week is in the books, as American Idol stumbles towards this year’s finale. This week we had both solo performances and duets, Jamie Foxx trying desperately to seem half as relevant as Harry Connick Jr., more forced humor from Ellen, a triple feature of guest artists on the results show, and the end of the road for someone. So who’s in the top 3? Find out after the break.
