Tonight was the end of the road for one unlucky contestant on American Idol.Â Last night I had predicted that it would likely be Megan Joy or Matt Giraud facing elimination tonight.Â So who did it end up being?Â Well first let’s get into a few highlights from tonight’s show before we learn who was sent packing.
The show started with the remaining eight Idol contestants singing the Journey song ‘Don’t Stop Believing.’Â The group was impressive with this classic rock song of yesteryear.
Next we were treated to last years Idol winner David Cook singing his new single ‘Come Back to Me.’Â Two hot blondes then presented Cook with a platinum record for his debut album that has now sold over a million copies.
Ryan Seacrest, at this point, had given us the bottom three for tonight.
The bottom three tonight were Megan Joy, Allison Iraheta, and Anoop Desai.
Iraheta is extremely talented so I didn’t believe she would be going home tonight.Â Â So in my mind, that left Anoop and Meg.Â Anoop wasn’t great last night, but he wasn’t horrible either.Â On the other hand Megan was beyond horrible.
Before we found out the winner, the mysterious and eccentric Lady GaGa performed her #1 hit single ‘Poker Face.’Â I guess it is a must now for female entertainers to perform in fishnet stockings (see Britney, Madonna, and now Lady GaGa).Â GaGa is GooGoo and talented, but I honestly couldn’t tell if she was actually singing or lip synching.Â Either way she put on a great performance.
Finally, after all of the pop and fireworks ended, Ryan was back on stage to tell us who was going home tonight.Â The first to be sent to safety was Allison Iraheta.Â This left Anoop and Megan on stage.Â Seacrest wasted no time in telling us that Megan Joy was the low vote getter and kicked off the show.
Judge Simon Cowell told Megan before she sang that the judges would not use their save to keep her for next week.Â Megan then gave one of the more odd performances ever on Idol in a repeat performance singing ‘Turn Your Lights Down Low.’Â She appeared drunk, crazy, and mental throughout the entire performance.Â She reminded me of the drunk sorority girls attempting to sing karaoke at a mixer back in college.Â Maybe Megan is just that goofy by nature.Â She came across as being really immature though.Â Her second performance of the song was even worse than her first last night and that is saying a lot.
ELIMINATED: Megan Joy
And then there was eight…
Idol Contestants Remaining: Matt Giraud, Adam Lambert, Scott MacIntyre, Danny Gokey, Anoop Desai, Kris Allen, Allison Iraheta, Lil Rounds
