Tonight’s show got started with the remaining Idols singing the Andrew Lloyd Webber song ‘All I Ask Of You’. Ryan Seacrest then did a very polite Q&A with Sir Andrew.Leona Lewis, who was discovered by Simon Cowell, sang ‘Bleeding Love’ and introduced herself to American. Her album Spirit has been #1 on Billboard.
The bottom two contestants this week were Syesha Mercado and Carly Smithson.
Syesha and Carly each got a second chance to sing their songs from last night. It is hard to believe that Jason Castro and/or Brooke White were not among the bottom two.
And here is who is going home this week:
Pack Your Bags
Carly Smithson (San Diego, CA) – ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’
Another shocker this week for sure. Neither Carly or Syesha deserved to go home this week. I for sure thought either Jason Castro or Brooke (restart me again) White would be going home. Carly has a big career ahead of her. She can just get a jump start on it now. I think Carly would make the finals. Now it is going to be the David’s in the finals.
The 5 Remaining American Idol Finalists (in no particular order)
