TV Recap: American Idol - Final 8 Results

April 9, 2009

Scott is Out!

HOLLYWOOD (RPRN) 04/09/09-TV Recap: American Idol - Final 8 Results Well, Adam Lambert might have gotten the short end of the stick last night when his performance took place after the hour, causing many DVR users to miss his spectacular rendition of “Mad World.” Fortunately for Lambert (and for Idol viewers), this didn’t hurt Adam’s chances at making it to next week.

Included in tonight’s filler was the usual Ford commercial, set to Britney Spears’ “Circus.” Hearing the Idol contestants perform it gave me a new appreciation for the energy Spears puts into that song. The Idol version was a bit on the boring side, but at least we got extra Ford-ness as they included a special making-of featurette prior to the video. Flo Rida performed “Right Round” after that, making a mess of the stage, covering it in ribbons in the process. My favorite part was after the song when Ryan said “Hi” to the dancers as they walked by.

Season 5 contestant Kellie Pickler returned to the Idol stage to perform “Best Days of Your Life.” Vocally she was just ok but she looked fantastic. Loved the dress. Loved the shoes (that added at least a few inches to her height, judging by the heels). And she did a good job of not busting a seem, which was apparently her goal for this performance.

As for the results, here’s how it went down:

Adam – Safe
Anoop – Bottom Three
Kris – Safe
Matt – Safe
Scott – Bottom 3 – ELIMINATED
Allison – Safe
Lil – Bottom 3

I thought this week’s bottom three was fair. Lil performed well during the audition process but since the top 13 began, she hasn’t really wowed me. Scott’s performance last night was a mess and Anoop’s was just whatever.

Lil was sent back to safety, leaving Anoop and Scott to wait to learn their fate. Out of 34 million votes, there was only a difference of 30 thousand separating Anoop and Scott. Anoop was safe and Scott had to sing for the judges. The judges have three weeks left to use their special “save” power. Two judges wanted Scott to stay and two wanted him to go. In the end, they left it up to Simon to deliver the fatal blow. I can't say I'm disappointed. I think it's fantastic that Idol featured a blind person this year and it says a lot for what people with physical handicaps can achieve. Scott always handled himself well and while he can certainly sing, he wasn't measuring up to some of the other competition as of late.
