American Idol Recap – Top 11 Perform…Again

I’m usually one to brush off any talk about Idol conspiracies and whatnot, but last week smelled fishier than the dumpster outside of a Long John Silver’s.  He may not have had a great performance, but I’m not believing that Casey Abrams received the least amount of votes, especially with the likes of Haley Reinhart and Naima Adedapo hanging around.  And with the judges cutting Casey off just seconds into his “save-me” performance, it just seemed all too perfectly dramatic.

With ratings the lowest they’ve been in years, and Steven Tyler all of a sudden becoming Ellen Degeneres 2.0, Idol needed to do something dramatic and drastic, and it’s worked, as the focus of all their advertising this week has been about last week’s shocker.  And now this week, all 11 will be back (and all 11 are going on tour) and I fully expect Naima or Haley to be at least one of the two, if not both, to be eliminated this week.  But there’s no way Casey is voted off two straight weeks.

Anyway,  here’s how I have the Top 11 ranked again going into this week…

MY OVERALL TOP 11
1. Lauren Alaina (1)
2. Pia Toscano (2)
3. Casey Abrams (3)
4. Thia Megia (4)
5. James Durbin (8)
6. Stefano Langone (5)
7. Scott McCreery (7)
8. Paul McDonald (6)
9. Jacob Lusk (10)
10. Naima Adedapo (9)
11. Haley Reinhart (11)

Tonight’s theme, songs of Elton John.  Another recycled theme, but last used in season 3 if I’m not mistaken, so I’m ok with that (anyone remember John Stevens trying to do “Crocodile Rock”? – well I do, check it out here – it’s the second video on the page, it’s worth the trip down memory lane)

American Idol Recap – Top 11 Perform

My apologies for missing last week’s Idol recap…actually I’m not sorry, I watched it a few days ago and it was pretty atrocious.  Not sure anyone stood out (maybe Stefano), but plenty of them would have gotten a D+ or worse (I’m talking to you Haley, Naima, Jacob, Casey and the recently departed Karen Rodriguez).  Let this be a lessen to you Idol hopefuls…if you dress like Snooki, you’re going to get voted off the show.

Tonight starts off as the screen is black and white with Seacrest (aka Peaches) telling us to not adjust our TV sets, because it’s MOTOWN night on Idol (again for the 10th straight season…let’s get some original theme nights already).  So if this is true Motown night, will Jacob and Naima sing tomorrow instead of tonight in a special episode just for them?  Too soon?

Anyway, with no prejudice, here’s how I have the Top 11 ranked going into this week…

MY OVERALL TOP 13
1. Lauren Alaina (1)
2. Pia Toscano (3)
3. Casey Abrams (2)
4. Thia Megia (5)
5. Stefano Langone (6)
6. Paul McDonald (4)
7. Scott McCreery (7)
8. James Durbin (9)
9. Naima Adedapo (8)
10. Jacob Lusk (10)
11. Haley Reinhart (12)

My only prediction for tonight…Scotty, who’s completely out of his element tonight, sings “My Girl” as that’s suited for his voice.  Jennifer Lopez says there are so many great songs of Motown, that you can’t go wrong.  Too bad we can’t say the same thing about her makeup artist.  It looks like she’s got lime green jello for eyelids.  Oooh, Liv Tyler’s in the audience tonight, where’s Alicia Silverstone?
