Tonight on “American Idol” the top 10 became nine as one more singer was eliminated from the competition after a performance night of songs from.
But before any results were revealed…
…the top 10 finalists perform “For the Longest Time” with Elise sitting with Steven and giving him a kiss on the cheek and a spinning record album in the background.
This week on the Ford music video the Idols play a little hide and seek.
The first result…
Hollie, Skyler, and Elise are the first to learn their fate and whether or not they will get to move into the mansion. Hollie is safe; she is joined by Skylar and Elise who escapes a third week in the bottom three.
Taking a break from the results, Lana Del Rey makes a visit to the Idol stage to perform “Video Games”.
Before any more results are revealed, hostlet it out that this weekend will celebrate a birthday. And instead of a cake, band mate Joe Perry came out and everyone sang a Happy Birthday to Steven.
DeAndre, Joshua, and Jessica are the next Idols to learn their fate. Ryan noted that a fourth judge had joined the table – Joe Perry. Ryan relayed that Billy Joel himself said that he liked Jessica’s performance of his song. Jessica is safe. Joshua joins her as being safe; but DeAndre is the first singer in the bottom three.
Season 10 Idol finalist Haley Rinehart returns to the Idol stage with her new single “Free”.
The final four – Erika, Heejun, Phillip, and Colton learn their fates for the week. Jimmy Iovine said that he received an email from Billy Joel saying that Colton did a great job of “Piano Man”.
Jimmy compared Heejun’s performance to a bad movie that went straight to DVD. In a rebuttal Heejun said that he isn’t trying to be a star and is happy where he is.
Colton is safe. Erika is the second singer in the bottom three. Phillip and Heejun are left and one spot in the bottom three. Phillip is safe, as Ryan said “Moving Out” of the hotel and into the mansion. Heejun is the last person in the bottom three.
DeAndre, Erika, and Heejun are on stage…Ryan saves DeAndre for another week. It’s down to Erika and Heejun… and it’s Erika who is in danger of being eliminated and must sing for her life.
And it’s up to the judges…but they do not use their one save of the season and Erika is eliminated from the competition.
Next week the remaining Idols will perform the songs of their own Idols.
