They're really going to use this staircase a lot. I can feel it. A new rule? What new rule? I boo-dooped through part of the judges intros last night.
Here's the new rule - the "judges save" Up until the top 5, the judges can save one contestant from elimination. The judges have to decide unanimously. They can only save one contestant for the entire competition. Once the judges save a contestant, they can't save anyone else for the rest of the season.
We're seeing the contestant residence for the first time since Season 1. It looks like the big judges house from the chair episode. Too bad they're so busy they'll never spend any time there.
Jackson 5 Medley! Cue awkward dancing! Scott is dancing! Wow! They've done a pretty good job of putting people next to Scott to help him in the transitions. And lots of camera work. Awkward dancing solo for Danny!
Recap of last night. I'm on Twitter - not really watching. The Ford commercial was sweet! The contestants are clearly pleased with the result. High fives all around!
Results: (Dial Idol has Jasmine, Jorge and Allison at the bottom)
Michael Sarver - Safe!
Allison Iraheta - Safe! (So, it's probably Jasmine & Jorge...)
Jasmine Murray - pulled to the middle of the stage to await her fate
Matt Giraud - though obviously confused, is Safe!
Kris Allen - Safe!
Megan Corkrey - pulled to the middle of the stage to await her fate, but she's safe
Jasmine is the first elimination. We have to hear her sing. But I don't...boo doop! The judges discussed it when she was singing and then eliminated her again. Rejected by America and Randy Jackson within five minutes. Ouch!
Performance by Kanye West. Kanye is wearing gloves and grabbing his crotch. Kanye...you are not MJ. And you really shouldn't sing. Even with that techno filter over your voice, it shouldn't be happening. Wow - they moved the judges out for the performance and put screaming girls from the rhythmically challenged mosh pit up there. Also, are those the worst backup singers ever? Why does the drummer have a mask on? Why am I still watching this? Kanye...just perform "Gold Digger" next time. Mmmmkay? Thanks.
Scott MacIntyre - Safe!
Alexis Grace - Safe! (I typed that before Ryan said it. I can READ RYAN'S MIND!)
Danny Gokey - Safe! As if he was in trouble.
Anoop Desai - pulled to the middle of the stage to await his fate
Adam Lambert - Safe! As if...
Jorge Nunez - pulled to the middle of the stage to await his fate
Lil Rounds - Safe!
If Dial Idol is right, it's Jorge. But, we have to wait through a commercial and a Kelly Clarkson performance to find out.
Yay! Kelly!!! Booo! Kelly's outfit! Yikes. Booo! Kelly's hair! Regardless, I love her. She's a fantastic singer and performer. She's a little vocally tired and she still sounds great. Though she needs to fire whoever picked out that outfit.
Anoop is safe. Jorge is going home....or is he?
He is. Sorry, Jorge.
Did you agree with America? Should the judges have used their rule to save Jorge or Jasmine? How far can Megan go with support from Vote for the Worst and the Utah voting block?
