No one can waste time like AMERICAN IDOL. An hour of filler to announce the three contestants moving on to the Top 12. Lucky for all of us they used that time wisely and gave us a over the top, cheesy, poorly performed dance number. Awesome. I have to wonder if they IDOL producers ever watch the shows. Don’t they know how bad it looks? Yikes.
After much yammering Seacrest finally gets around to bringing the contestants down to the main stage. For three of them tonight is about moving one step closer to the dream. For the other nine it’s the end of the road…well, at least this particular road.
To mix things up a bit (and by that I mean to waste time), half way through the results we were treated to an encore performance of “The Letter” by former Top 12ers Carly Smithson & Michael Johns. Both are fantastic and should have gone further in their seasons. All due respect to David Archuleta, I think the finals should have been Cook vs. Johns. [GMMR ducks and hides as the Archie fans pelt her with tomatoes.]
The first three contestants through to the Top 12 of Season 8 are…

Alexis Grace, Michael Sarver, and Danny Gokey
I think the big shocker was Michael Sarver being the third highest vote getter. It came down to him and Anoop. I thought the third spot would have been between Anoop and Ricky Braddy. I don’t think Michael performed well enough to make it through. And he sounded perhaps worse tonight. But clearly the voters knew who they wanted. Congrats to Alexis, Michael and Danny.
Did your favorites make it through? Are you going to miss Tatiana? What’s the over/under on her posing in Playboy within the next 18 months?
