By the time I found a live stream of idol, they were already doing the group performance, which seemed to be a medley of Michael Jackson songs. It seemed like a pretty good group performance, from the little I heard anyway. I didnt really care for the Ford music video.
Casey was missing from the show due to health reasons (he's in the hospital), but we got to see him at the red carpet premier of Red Riding Hood. It showed him and the rest of the top 13 interacting with all the stars of the new movie. It was kool - pointless, but kool I guess..
The guest performances of the night were Adam Lambert and Diddy Dirty Money. Adam performed a stripped down version of his single "Aftermath." I kinda miss seeing Adam perform every week on Idol, but I didnt really like his new single. However, there's a remix version available and all the proceeds go towards the "It Gets Better" campaign. Diddy Dirty Money (ft. Skylar Grey) performed "Coming Home." It has a catchy chorus I guess, but I could have cared less about that performance.
Anyways, lets get to the results....
The judges "save" has been brought back this year. I just hope they dont waste it, their wildcard picks were questionable, so I dont know if I trust them to make a good decision anymore!
Jacob, Stefano, and Karen were the first three brought down for their results. Ryan recapped what the judges said to them about their performances and then told them that they were all safe...except for Karen. Umm WTF?! I thought that was really effed up! I felt so bad for Karen in that moment. =/
The next three up for their results were Lauren, Ashton, and Haley. Ryan again recapped their performances and then asked Lauren how she felt about her performance after watching it back. Lauren apologized to her fans because she knew it was bad. (I didnt think it was bad) Ryan then told her she was safe. (yay!) Then he said the person thats in the bottom three is...Ashton...and also Haley!
Again, I was like WTF?! He didnt even ask the other contestants to come down, he just said that everybody on the couch was safe. I prefer bringing them all down and revealing the results....builds more excitement that way!!
The bottom three: Karen Rodriguez, Ashton Jones, and Haley Reinhart.
And the person with the lowest amount of votes was: Ashton!
The judges decided not to "save" her (thank gooodness!) and it was an unanimous decision.
Gotta say I'm totally happy with tonight's end result, but I wasnt too happy about Karen or Haley being in the bottom. I dont think either deserved to be there. Hopefully next week they can really "bring it" =)
