Who Went Home on AMERICAN IDOL?

April 22, 2009 by  

If you’re looking to find out who won the American Idol season finale tonight- Adam or Kris – please click here: Who Won AMERICAN IDOL Tonight? (May 20, 2009)


And then there were six five. The judges save for Matt last week means two people are going home tonight. Who will it be? Will the judges regret their save if one of their golden boys go home? We’ll see.

I’ll be live blogging IDOL tonight. I’m ready to go, are you?

9:01pm: “THIS is American Idol” — do you think Seacrest had a team that sat around and came up with that opening? I hope not.

9:03pm: Paula Abdul is choreographing tonight’s group number. Maybe it’s me but I thought Paula looked about 10 years younger in the dance studio.

The Idols sporting some seriously horrible 70’s outfits. I appreciate Kris Allen in skin tight clothing, don’t get me wrong, but it’s all a little ridiculous. Oh and they’re back to the quite obvious lip syncing. So sad for the show.

They’re giving Paula some flowers for that dance? Seriously? This show is a little crazy and it’s only 9:08pm.

9:14pm: Let’s dim the lights and get to the results.

  • Lil Rounds -GONE

Whoa…I was prepared for Lil to go home but I didn’t expect it to happen right here and now. Lil never figured who she was. She can sing – no doubt, but she squandered her opportunity to set herself apart as an artist.  We wish her well.

9:23pm: Time for a Disco medley from some 70’s idols in their own right. Also time for me to check email. Sorry, but this is borderline awkward. I’m waiting for these ladies to either fall off the stage or have some kind of strange wardrobe malfunction. I’m not wishing it, but I’m fully prepared for it to happen.

It’s only KC – no Sunshine Band. What, were they busy? Can you book the Sunshine Band without KC? I wonder how many times this guy has sang “Get Down Tonight” in his life. KC and the Sunshine Band once played at a company meeting of mine…and now they are on IDOL. I can say I knew them when.

9:35pm: We are back at it. It’s time to send someone into the danger zone.

  • Kris Allen – SAFE (Good job, America!)
  • Adam Lambert – SAFE (Nice!)

Now that Adam and Kris are safe I can rest easy. Anyone else could go and I’d be ok with it.

  • Danny Gokey – SAFE
  • Anoop Desai – BOTTOM TWO
  • Matt Giraud – SAFE
  • Allison Iraheta – BOTTOM TWO

I know that neither Anoop or Allison will win, but I’m hoping for the sake of the competition (and my personal enjoyment) that Allison makes it through to next week.

9:45pm: Stick your fingers in your ears or else risk permanent damage from the Archie fans. David Archuleta takes the stage. His permagrin is adorable.  Do you think he’ll ever grow or is this it for him? I wonder if he’ll be 70 and still look 14. I’d really like to put him in a little dog carrier and walk around with him all day. I’d take him out and have him sing occasionally. That’s normal, right?

I’m going to get beat down, but honestly he didn’t sound that good. It all felt a little forced. [GMMR runs and ducks for cover.]

9:54pm: Ryan is back and is ready to send someone else home tonight. And that person is….Anoop Desai.

Aw, we loved you Anoop. Be proud you made it this far. This guy has a hell of a voice and I hope there is something beyond IDOL for him.

What did you think of tonight’s booting of Anoop and Lil? Did the right people go home? And let’s start talking finals. I’m hoping for a Kris/Adam showdown, but I fear The Gokey might overtake my boy Kris. Your thoughts?

  2. steve on April 22nd, 2009 10:03 pm

    its gonna be Gokey and Adam…Adam will win by a landslide…even though he’s gay.

  3. Give Me My Remote on April 22nd, 2009 10:08 pm

    Enough already with the “gay” thing. Seriously.

  4. lauren85 on April 22nd, 2009 10:12 pm

    adam’s guyliner kinda freaks me out, KRIS all the way! ::swooooooon::

    would love to see allison peak and sneak into the finals with Kris

  5. Kristin on April 22nd, 2009 10:16 pm

    I Agree! I love Adam Lambert, he is totally original and has some voice but Kris has a VERY Sexy Dave Matthews thing going for him and I can’t wait to hear his first album!

  6. l-l-l-lisha on April 22nd, 2009 10:27 pm

    I loooove that Lil and Anoop went home! Adam & Danny are gonna be the final two. YESSS!
    Wisco loves thier Danny!! <3

  7. Catrina on April 22nd, 2009 10:31 pm

    Poor Anoop…I knew he wasn’t going to win, but at least he made it this far! I am so glad Lil went home! FINALLY!

    Go Adam! Go Kris! They are both super duper adorable!

  8. Katherine Hughes on April 22nd, 2009 10:37 pm

    I am soooooo glad Kris is still around…he is AWESOME!! Hope he goes to the finals!!

  9. Alex on April 22nd, 2009 10:41 pm

    Omg why did matt not go home tonight I hate him an was cheering when he got voted off then they used the stupid save lame. He needs to go home next week. I love Allison and adam that would b an awesome finale

  10. kris on April 22nd, 2009 10:51 pm

    I hope chris don’t get sent home, not really into the girl but like chirs and Adam !!

  11. Allyssa on April 22nd, 2009 11:41 pm

    kris vs danny final two 🙂

  12. Jessica on April 22nd, 2009 11:43 pm

    I definitely think the correct 2 were sent home!! I really like Matt..even though he has had his ups and downs. I DO NOT like Danny Gokey!! I hope he goes home next week, he is so BORING!! I know Adam is a front runner, but he just doesn’t do it for me. I would love to see the final 3- Kris, Allison, Matt!!!

  13. ryan on April 22nd, 2009 11:47 pm

    KRIS needs to win.

    In the finals;
    Adam. (we all new from day one.)

    im guessing adam, but i think this going to be another archie-cook thing.
    david cook won last year, but david arch. did ALOTT better on his album.

  14. bernard on April 23rd, 2009 12:08 am

    if adam doesn’t win this world has gone crazy.
    cause yes, allison is good, she’s 16, she’ll go far.
    “anoop dog”, no, he sucks compared to all the rest of them.
    Kris, he is just hot. he can sing yes, but he will mainly go far b/c he’s another jesse mccartney or jason mraz or something.
    danny, he’s really really good, he’ll go mad far just like allison b/c of their voice not of somethin else.
    but all tied up none of them are better than adam.
    he’s like “why hasn’t anyone made you famous yet” good.

  15. Hannah on April 23rd, 2009 12:08 am

    Thank god lil went home- I wasn’t even a fan of her voice.

    Sad about Anoop, I thought he should of been in the finals with Adam… definitely had the second best voice IMO.

    HATE Danny- Think he is BEYOND boring and COMPLETELY un-marketable except to maybe the 10-14/70-90 year old sectors.

    Lovveee Adam, I will stop watching if he ever gets kicked off.

    Like Matt more than Kris- Kris has a nice voice… but something about his facial expressions when he sings, I just can’t take him seriously.

  16. Nettie209 on April 23rd, 2009 12:09 am

    Ya I do believe it was Annops turn to go but I’m not so sure about sending lil Rounds home… I would have rather seen the piano guy “Giraud” go!!!!! But please that lipsync was a dissaster I knew it was going down like that and if I knew it was going on I’m sure that all of America knew it…. I think it would have been better live after all that was this show is all about, right?

  17. Amber on April 23rd, 2009 12:16 am

    Hi! I agree 100% with America so far. Lil just irritated me and Anoop never just rocked it, so he was boring to me. I also would love to see an Adam/Kris showdown with Adam winning of course. I think they should go ahead and name him the idol and quit leading the others on. I believe Adam has it won by a long shot. He has the ability to be different. The others (danny) always sounds the same. It’s like listening to the “red eyes commercial guy” singing if he sang. Ok well there’s my thoughts!

  18. kom on April 23rd, 2009 12:50 am

    adam is hands down the best. he is the only reason i watch the show. i still cant get over his “ring of fire”. that was the craziest thing i ever heard. he is going to win and if he doesnt then the show is bunk-o-rama. i cant wait for adams record. it will be sooooo good.

  19. Brisa on April 23rd, 2009 1:08 am

    O MY GOD its gonna be danny and adam final two……. and i hope gokey takes ut. I LOVE HIM SOOOOO MUCH and he deserves it way more not to mention his voice tops everyone elses. hes an amazing guy.

  20. pity card on April 23rd, 2009 1:33 am

    I can’t believe danny is still around! The only reason he is, is because people feel bad that he lost his wife. I feel bad too but i’m not vting for him to keep him on and if he does win no one will buy the CD’s. He keeps picking sad love song. He know your wife died and you love her. But honestly enough is enough! stop playing the pity card!

  21. David on April 23rd, 2009 1:37 am

    People love Adam that much. I just don’t understand why he colored his hair black. Was his natural red hair not good enough anymore? Also what’s with all the make-up? I know he is trying to cover up all the freckles. It’s funny how much people change their looks, but people can still see right through him. I hope his high school choir teacher is watching her star.

  22. Chancay on April 23rd, 2009 2:08 am

    I agree with you re:Archuleta, he sounded pretty bad… but not as bad as the old disco ladies.

    The final SHOULD be Adam and Allison (Adam winning)

    The final WILL be Adam and Danny (hopefully Adam winning as well)

    Also, did anyone notice how uncomfortable Allison was with her baggy sweatshirt?? This was right after Ryan had said that the ladies were talking too long to change clothes… me thinks something happened to Allison’s clothes and she had to borrow that sweatshirt from somebody else at the last minute.

  23. liz on April 23rd, 2009 2:30 am

    I think the correct idiols were sent home! I don’t like Allison at all! she is nothing but a wanna be Janice Joplin!!!! her voice sucks! and she is fugly! and her mother gets on my last nerve! kris allen gets on my nerves with his facial expressions adam will make it far and gokey don’t know about him!

  24. Vonnie on April 23rd, 2009 2:32 am

    Allison and Adam have been the most consistent, I wouldn’t mind seeing those two go head to head. They seem to be in a whole other level. I’ve always liked Danny but he does seem a little arrogant and it wouldn’t bother me if he goes. If you asked me in the beginning I would’ve thought Lil makin it to the top 4 was a sure thing but seemed to only stand out in first couple performances. I’m not surprised Anoop is gone and not sad to see him go. As far as Kris and Matt…don’t really care for either of them, my direct tv hasn’t worked since lastweek so I can’t remember which is which. Even though it’s sooo 2 weeks ago I’m just glad that Scott is gone. He got more pity votes then I don’t know what

  25. Philip on April 23rd, 2009 7:10 am

    Adam is gonna win because he deserves it and for the people that are upset that he IS gay
    get over it
    these are the same people that swore up and down that Clay was a breeder i mean what planet are you all on LOL

  26. Lisa (aka lmr) on April 23rd, 2009 8:56 am

    Lots of passion coming out towards the end here. IMO, it’s a matter of one’s taste in music. Although Adam has grown on me in the last month, I still think he is more musical theater than rock star. I just wouldn’t listen to him on a CD – just my taste. I would listen to Kris as his vocal styling is my taste. Not saying one is more talented than the other, just saying it is what I’d prefer to listen to. I think Danny will do well after as his voice too is very good – he just needs good advice and packaging.

    The right folks went home. Archie’s voice is strained and I worry how long he’s going to be able to sing. He better make his dough while he can. I love him dearly but he’s got a vocal expiration date.

  27. Michele on April 23rd, 2009 9:07 am

    Lisa – I agree with you 100%. I keep saying – I like Adam, and I would love to go see him on Broadway, but I can’t imagine listening to him on the radio. And I just don’t buy the ‘sincerity’ when he slows it down for the cheesy ballads. I really liked Kris’s performance this week. Inventive, upbeat, fun, and he sang well. IMO I think Matt should go next, and then Gokey, really. He sings well, but I feel like we see the same performance every week with no real spark to it. (And that seems like a weird thing to say because he DOES sing well, I just don’t feel connected to it…) Allison need to pick a great song and rock the crap out of it. I think ultimately Adam WILL win, but I would rather see Kris or Allison take it.

  28. Betty on April 23rd, 2009 9:17 am

    i think anoop should have stayed, he has a nice voice, whereas i think matt isin’t good at all, and everyone seems to like allison and adam but look out cause chris is on a roll

  29. Cathy on April 23rd, 2009 9:50 am

    In the beginning, I really liked Danny’s voice. I was never really a big fan of HIM, but I liked his (not to sound all Paula/Randy on you) tone. He’s just gotten too boring for me and I can see him having a Taylor Hicks type career.

    I agree with the comment someone made above about Adam being very musical theater. I like him a lot, and i think he has a great voice, but I’m really not sure what kind of album he’d put out.

    My favorite is Kris. Now I don’t really think he’s going to win (or probably even make the top 2), but I think he just has a great voice and a great musical style. You definitely know what kind of album you’d get from him, and the singer/songwriter guitar player thing is very current.

  30. Jordan on April 23rd, 2009 11:14 am

    WELL>>>>\ the right people went home and it is going to be adam and allison in the finale. The two best singers, and all around preformers. Ending with adam as the winner

  31. juliagulia on April 23rd, 2009 12:19 pm

    I’m hoping for an Adam/Kris finale, but an Adam/Danny finale would be fine too. Or a Danny/Kris. I really don’t care who wins (It will obviously be one of those three) because I love them all, and they’ll all put out albums anyway, so what does it matter? My personal fave is Adam, he’s stunningly gorgeous and his voice turns me into a blob of mush. But Kris always keeps surprising me! & he’s gotta be one of the cutest guys to ever grace Idol. And Danny is from my state so I gotta support him! He’s so talented & committed.

    I’m glad Lil is gone – I liked her so much in the beginning but she just never hit her stride. It makes me sad for her. But I’m sure she’ll have success! And I was really sick of Anoop too…Was it just me or did he develop quite an attitude over the past weeks? In Hollywood week & the top 36 he just seemed so nice and humble but lately he would get so defensive with the judges. IDK. Either way I’m definitely ok with him being gone.

    Matt & Allison are super great too, but with their Bottom 3 history I just don’t think they have the fanbase to push them very much further. I could be wrong though! Idol loves to surprise me!

  32. J on April 23rd, 2009 12:24 pm

    I imagine Adam is going to win. I don’t personally see why though for all the screeching he does. I almost liked his performance this week, til he brought out the dying cat screech again. I don’t knkow what made someone say that Archhie’s album did better than DC’s though. Have you NOT seen the numbers?

  33. Laura on April 23rd, 2009 2:37 pm

    Hello! David Cook’s album sold about 400,000 more copies than David Archuleta’s so check your facts before posting.

  34. stranger on April 23rd, 2009 3:58 pm

    Adam is the next American Idol. It was Lil’s time to go, she was disappointing every week. if not Gokey. Go Adam!!

  35. jec on April 23rd, 2009 7:27 pm

    Danny is my favorite. But Adam and Allison are rockn it too!!! Go DAnny!!!

  36. The Other Whitney on April 24th, 2009 2:21 am

    Hey GMMR! I just wanted to know if you noticed Benji Schwimmer helping Paula teach the Idols their dance number? I’m always excited for SYTYCD crossovers!

  37. kristen on April 24th, 2009 12:41 pm

    sooooooooooo happy Anoop went home and siriosley Lil is a wannabe Rihanna !! well the final three i hope will be THE ONE AND ONLY DANNY, chris and Allison. i mean adam rocks in all but sincce he is gay i cant see voting for him but the final three will be danny , adam and chris. Danny rules i think he will win all of it he desurves it in sooooooo many ways his voice is better then lots of other singers and matt definatley needs too go people reading this vot GOKEY!

  39. Boob-Meister on April 24th, 2009 10:17 pm

    Ok so the first thing i have to say is
    they both needed to go home BAD (especially Anoop!)
    Second is that you CAN NOT judge a person in this by there looks, who am i talking about you might ask?well I am talking about ADAM!
    He has the worst style, the worst voice BY FAR and, just as an example, disco isn’t suppose to make you sad, its suppose to make you happy and all i felt when he was done singing this week was sad because he A) sang it emo style (EWWWWWWWW) and B) he was told that he did a good job, But he DID NOT.
    Third, there are only three good SINGERS in this anymore(NOT JUDGING ON LOOKS) and they are Allison, Danny, and Kris!

  40. Lisa on April 24th, 2009 11:04 pm

    im guessing adam, but i think this going to be another archie-cook thing.
    david cook won last year, but david arch. did ALOTT better on his album.
    You sure aren’t much of a fact checker, are you? DC’s album is head and shoulders above DA’s and the sales more than reflected that. DC’s concert tour has been highly successful as well.

  41. Nomad on April 25th, 2009 1:50 am

    the Idol contestants are whittled down to the point that now I would be sad to see any of them leave

    Hello. fantastic job. I did not imagine this. This is a impressive story. Thanks!

  44. Rusich@bing.com on October 27th, 2015 7:57 am

    You actually make it appear so easy along with your presentation but I find this topic to be really one thing that I think I would by no means understand. It seems too complex and extremely wide for me. I’m looking ahead for your next put up, I’ll try to get the hold of it!

  45. Which Pull Up Bar on October 31st, 2015 10:14 am

    An fascinating discussion could possibly be worth comment. I’m sure that you could compose much a lot more about this subject, it’ll not come to be a taboo topic but normally individuals are certainly not sufficient to talk on such subjects. An more. Cheers

  46. great post to read on November 1st, 2015 11:19 am

    I cannot thank you fully for the blogposts on your internet page. I know you placed lots of time and effort into all of them and hope you know how considerably I appreciate it. I hope I will do precisely the same for an additional individual at some point. Palm Beach Condos
