Who Made it Through on AMERICAN IDOL?

February 26, 2009 by  

We are back for another night of IDOL. Three more are moving on and the other nine will be heading home. Will YOUR favorites be moving on?

Kicking things off tonight is another awkward group number. Tonight the kids are trying to get through NeYo’s “Closer”. Adam and Matt opened the number and sounded great together, but the rest of the song was so boring. Between the contestants mugging for the camera and the choral group gone wrong bad vibe, it was kind of a disaster. Isn’t it always with these group numbers? Nick Mitchell and not Normal Gentle showed up for this group routine. We like Normal Gentle.

The first contestant in the Top 12 is….

Allison Iraheta – by far the best girl from last night.  Maybe the best girl in the competition.

(Oh no. Matt Giraud has gone home.  I’m so sad.)

Joining Allison, Danny, Alexis and Michael in the Top 12 is Kris Allen (YES!!! – and how adorable was Kris tonight?  He was beaming.  So happy).

Before we get to the final contestant of the night we have to listen to Brooke “Oops Can I Start Over” White.  I don’t have anything against Brooke but there are a lot of ex-IDOLS I’d rather see. I think she’s rather boring. I guess they’re saving Archuleta for the big show.

It’s only 8:45pm but I’m going to go ahead and predict the final two standing will be Nick Mitchell and Adam Lambert.

It’s 8:50pm and I’m right!

And the final person of Group 2 making it into this year’s Top 12 is…Adam Lambert.

These were the three that I thought would make it through. I’m still holding out hope that Matt has a shot in the wild card round. What do you think of tonight’s next three IDOL hopefuls?

    Hey – thanks for putting this up so quickly. I had to miss it and was wondering. I really like Kris and am glad he made it through. Not an Adam fan, but I know plenty others are. And a little bummed that Megan Joy didn’t make it…I wonder if it was her weird dancing that kept people from voting…

    Nick Mitchell showed up for “closer” and didn’t know the words! Bad lip synching job on his part.

    While the opening was a bit boring at least everyone sang on key. I think it was loads better than the previous group number. You could tell Nick wasn’t into it. He was not sing at all the wrong times 🙂 I was very happy with the ones who got through. Definitely the best three of the night.

    Here’s my question. What are they going to do if two guys and one girl get in next week? That will leave them with 6 guys and 3 girls. Will they have all girls or mostly girls in the wild card show? The girls have not been strong at all this season. Will they try to even the odds or let America choose?

    I personally think it is a guy’s season to lose at this point… probably Danny or Adam or someone we haven’t even seen yet. I’m alright with fewer girls then guys. It is just the nature of the beast – some seasons there should have been more girls and less guys. I much prefer this way of making out the top 12 instead of the way that they had been doing it. If I recall from season 1 and 2, there weren’t even numbers. I would have to check but I think that’s right.

    Actually, Season 3 had 8 girls and 4 guys in the Top 12, which was one of the reasons they changed it. The top George Huff was the last man standing, and he was eliminated in 5th place.

    Personally, I’m a fan of the format from seasons 4-7. As it stands right now, the results shows are a bloodbath of broken dreams, which is particularly hard when some of the contestants eliminated deserve to be in the Top 12 (Ricky Braddy) and others do not (Michael Sarver). It also favors producer plants, who benefit from screen time while others are left to overcome the “Who the HELL are they?” stamp. At least under the other system, you only had to avoid being in the bottom 2 to earn another shot to redeem yourself and build a fan base. I don’t agree with the thinking that seeing the same contestants week in and week out got boring. It was only boring because of the tired and tedious THEMES chosen.
