IDOL TOP 8 ELIMINATION: DEANDRE DEPARTS
American Idol followed up the best night of the season with what was arguably the worst night of the season on Wednesday evening. With only two great performances (Jessica Sanchez and Joshua Ledet) the entire night, there were plenty of potential candidates for the “Bottom 3.” My choices were Hollie Cavanagh, Deandre Brackensick and Elise Testone. Let’s get to the results and see what the voters thought.
BEST FRIENDS FOREVER
What happens when your college bestie marries a man she barely knows and her sacred union falls to shambles after several rounds of infidelity at just the same time as you finally meet the perfect guy who has just moved in? Do you let your BFF crash with you and potential Mr. Right until she gets back on her feet? Well, if you star in NBC's newest half hour sitcom...Damn right you do!
THE KILLING...ME SOFTLY
Last year, when AMC’s The Killing ended, I hollered like Goofy skiing off the side of a mountain, due to the sheer drop that this show just felled me from. After a season of feints, subterfuge, and zero resolution the one burning question still remains: Is Mireille Enos attractive? It’s so hard to tell when she is so purposely downplaying her looks. That, and we still have no idea who killed Rosie Larsen.
IDOL: TOP 8 TAKE ON 80's
Last week’s performances were clearly the best of Season 11. Outstanding performances by Jessica Sanchez, Phil Phillips, Colton Dixon and Elise Testone set the tone for the entire evening. Hoping to keep up the momentum tonight, the Top 8, will be performing songs from the 80’s. Lead singer Gwen Stefani and bassist Tony Kanal, from No Doubt, will appear as celebrity mentors. With only 8 contestants remaining each performance is critical and things can change fast.
