American Idol: Four More Out the Door

Tonight was a pretty succinct episode by “Idol” standards. With only one group musical number and one guest performance, Ryan wasted very little time revealing who the four bottom contestants were this week.

But before all the drama began, it was time for that customary horror show, that ritualistic assault on our senses- the group musical number. Tonight’s Top 10 hit destined to now haunt your nightmares was The Black Eyed Peas “I’ve Gotta Feeling.” The producers forced all 20 singers out onto that tiny stage and had them dance around like extras who didn’t make the cut for an episode of “Glee.”

It doesn’t lend much credibility to the singers to make them lip-synch the group number, but there were some pretty awesome moments. Here they are in no particular order: Lee and Crystal looking mortified at having to parade around the stage; Michael Lynche intentionally overacting; Siobhan Magnus rocking purple tights, in her weirdest outfit yet.

After a quick commercial, Ryan got down to business with the results. First up was the back row of guys, with Tim Urban, Toddrick Hall, Michael Lynche, Casey James and John Park standing up. After some dramatic pauses, Ryan told John he’d be going home. And he actually sounded pretty good during his swan song.

Pretty soon it was the front row of guys’ turn to face the heat. Lee Dewyze, Aaron Kelly, Alex Lambert and Andrew Garcia were all safe. That meant it was time for Jermaine Sellers to leave the “Idol” stage permanently.

To break up all the tense eliminations, “Idol” brought back one of its finalists from last season, Danny Gokey. Singing his new single “My Best Days Are Ahead of Me,” Danny sounded pretty good, though I’m not quite sure he sounds like a country artist, which is the sound he is going for. And despite the performance sounding a little like the title track of some ABC Family feel-good movie, I couldn’t help but like Danny all over again. It didn’t hurt that he was so excited he was practically jumping on stage like a happy puppy.

With nowhere to hide, it was soon time for the ladies to face the fire. First to stand were Lilly Scott, Paige Miles and Katie Stevens who were all safe. That left Didi Benami and Michelle Delamor all alone in their row. After a series of dramatic pauses, Ryan gave Michelle the disappointing news that she would be going home.

Up next were Katelyn Epperly, Crystal Bowersox, Siobhan Magnus and Lacey Brown, who all received a go-ahead to show up next week for rehearsals. That left 16-year-old Haeley Vaughn, who didn’t capture America’s votes with her so-so rendition of “The Climb.”

How do you feel after seeing tonight’s four booted singers? Did America make the right choice or are all your favorites going home? And do you think Danny Gokey is actually a country singer? Post your Idol-tastic comments below and tune in next Tuesday as your Top 8 women sing for their lives! –Chris Sardelli
