American Idol Top 9 Results: Inevitable

Does anyone else miss group songs on American Idol? No? Okay, well then, tonight was for you. With two performances and Jimmy Iovine’s laser-sharp comments, there was little time for any funny business last night. Steven Tyler announced an Aerosmith tour, so start saving your pennies for the nosebleed seats, folks.

The show started with tweets from the musicians the Idols covered last night, and a visit form Eric Benet. Deandre’s face was a thing to behold, and I still don’t think he quite believed it. Then there was the Ford music video, and a package about the Idol mansion. The house looks great, but I’m curious as to why they didn’t move in at the top 13. Then Ryan got down to business, calling Phillip, Elise and Hollie to the stage. The only comment of Jimmy’s I would disagree with is that on Hollie: I don’t see why he had to compare her with Jessica, when they are both technicians to me. Jessica simply has more experience. Hollie is in the bottom three, but seems to take it well.

After the commercial break, Nicki Minaj performs. I have no issue with lip synching, or singing to a backing track. But there were parts of the song were she didn’t even pretend to hold the microphone up. I’m not a big fan of her music, so I’m probably not the demographic to really say much more. She seems like a nice person.

Colton, Joshua and Heejun were next up, and in a way I think Jimmy was right and wrong about Colton and Joshua. I appreciated their emotional connectivity to the song, but it did affect their vocal performance in a bad way. For a minute Ryan fakes out Joshua, but he is safe, and Heejun is in the bottom three.

Scotty McCreery returned to perform his new single. Again, not my typical music, but I really appreciate how much he’s grown as a performer since May. He looked so comfortable on that stage. I wish him great success, and he seems like a great representative of American Idol.

Finally, Jessica, Deandre, and Skylar are up. Jimmy is spot on with all three, and while I’m not too surprised Skylar is in the bottom, it’s a little disappointing, since she had such a great performance. She is first back to safety though, so I’m glad it was only a minor scare.

Heejun is declared in the bottom, and his sing-off is really special. He knew he was going home, and he went out with a lot of class. The judges rightfully decline saving him, and I can’t wait to see what he comes up with for tour.

Next week’s American Idol is songs from the ’80s apparently. This could be really awesome, or incredibly terrible.
