We learned early in the show from Ryan Seacrest that Casey Abrams received many of those votes, so he's safe for another week. There were really no surprises that the BOTTOM 3 were: Naima Adedapo, Thia Megia and Paul McDonald. And the 2 voted off by America are:
- Naima Adedapo-She's NOT 'still standing' anymore after the reggae performance Wednesday night led to her downfall
- Thia Megia- Just not enough energy from this 16-year old phenom, but she'll be OK....and I wouldn't be surprised to see her competing on Idol again next year, or on X-Factor this fall, so keep an eye out for her.
|Paul McDonald Lives On!|
- Best performance of the night by far (and this includes the non-Idol performers too!) was Scottie and Lauren with the country duet of "I Told You So".....very well done!
- Maybe we got a sneak peak of Pia Toscano actually showing some movement on stage with Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream" during the threesome performance with Haley and Thia, though I think Haley out-sung her on stage. Not to heap trash on Thia, but she looked out of place here.
- I have NEVER liked Fantasia, and last night's performance just added to my dislike for her. What was that all about anyway? From the crazy hairdo to the dress to the song....HORRIBLE! I flipped over the Flyers game until she was done....Ugh!
- Don't worry about the foursome of James, Paul, Casey and Stefano performing together anywhere soon as a band. Their version of "Band On the Run" had me running to the kitchen for another glass of wine to get through the song......painful!
More to come before the 'TOP 9' performances next Wednesday night, but for now, Eddie Idol is.....OUT!
