FOX’s American Idol Season 11 Top 4 To 3 Live Elimination Show

Well, considering Percy Sledge himself emailed American Idol to say how much he loved Joshua’s cover of “When a Man Loves a Woman” on last night’s show , it would have been rather shocking if the year-old powerhouse had not made the top 10 and scored himself a slot on the American Idols Live tour. But what of the rest of the finalists? Some of last week’s standouts didn’t perform as well this week, and if they were hoping that Jermaine Jones ‘ disqualification would somehow exempt them from getting the boot They were wrong. And, to those of you who are thinking a girl might finally win this season after four years of male American Idols She may have bounced Steven Tyler ‘s reality check at one point, but year-old Shannon Magrane bid American Idol adieu tonight after perhaps taking on a little much with Mariah Carey ‘s “One Sweet Day. Despite her performance of “Let’s Stay Together” that the usually spot-on Jimmy Iovine categorized as mind-blowing, the voters again failed to connect with Elise Testone , unhappily in the bottom three for the second straight week. And the judges were confused too, questioning why she was there after a pitch-perfect performance. Erika Van Pelt also had to pay her dues for the second week in a row or third, considering she was a wild card in the first place , but, for now—and this summer—she’s safe. Is this the lineup you wanted to see this summer?

And that makes it kind of strange that Testone is one of the two singers who did not receive lavish praise from the judges on a night when they seemed predisposed to applaud anyone. Pretty much everyone got kudos, oversinging be darned. You have to give the judges credit for consistency — two looooonnnnng hours, and not one of them dozed off or asked Ryan whether they could help Fox come up with a half-hour sitcom pilot to avoid having to stretch these episodes out so much.

Even guest mentor Gwen Stefani, who along with fellow No Doubt member Tony Kanal joined Jimmy Iovine in the mentoring chairs, was filled with joy and mirth.

The final four will compete on Wednesday May 9, with another contestant being voted off on Thursdays results show. Backstage at “American Idol,” Hollie Cavanagh was bubbly and confident, practicing vocal riffs and giggling with fellow teenage contestant Jessica Sanchez. By the show’s end Wednesday, Cavanagh was the sole finalist to be found wanting by the judges — and possibly by the viewers who decide which singer will exit Thursday.

She won praise for her performance of Journey’s “Faithfully,” but her three competitors all drew undiluted acclaim from Tyler, Lopez and Randy Jackson.

I’m the Joshua Ledet of American Idol blogging like that. His best two performances to date have been a Patty Griffin song and last night’s My stomach was turning watching Hollie Cavanagh trip and stumble her way.

I fear Idol has suddenly become less exciting without either of them here — their ability to choose eclectic songs and reinvent them in a way that felt fresh and unique, with unyielding passion always in the forefront, made this season a true delight. It will be no different tomorrow. There was zero oomph in the song, and Phillip just let the melody lay there without adding any panache or seasoning.

Astonishingly enough, Phillip sucked out the cool factor from the s, making it drab and flavorless as a result. White Guy With Guitar 5 needs to get on home. Judge for yourself:. For me, Creedence Clearwater has a certain sound that is unparalleled, and try as she may, Skylar came across uncomfortably average with her rendition. I worry about her safety tonight:. Technically, he is pretty stellar, but I still feel like his lack of maturity hurts his performances at times.

His inexperience in life, if you can call that a weakness, tends to seep into his renditions, especially on the slower songs. A great artist — which is what all three judges basically claimed Joshua to be, and then some — needs to fully sell a performance, not just by their voice or their command of the stage, but also by transcending their emotions to an audience.

First the good news: There have been three winners on “American Idol” who got intimate with the bottom three during their runs. That means that Hollie Cavanagh, Jessica Sanchez and Joshua Ledet still have a shot at taking the top prize if they can survive the next two weeks. Now the bad news: no singer has ever won “Idol” after being saved Sanchez or making more than one trip to the bottom Cavanagh. And while that’s a ray of sunshine for Ledet, who has only hit the stools of shame once, the odds are not in his favor considering that of the 10 previous winners, only three have gone on to victory after facing elimination.

No “Idol” champ has ever gotten to the finish line after being on the chopping block more than once. Sanchez, 16, seemed like an almost sure bet to reach the finale a few weeks ago, but after a series of stumbles and some harsh comments from mentor Jimmy Iovine on Thursday night about what he deemed her too-risque stage attire, her balloon appears to be deflating.

May 3, • Welcome to the American Idol Top Five Week! song — or rather, Skylar’s rendition of this 60’s classic — felt oddly dated for Yep, I am expecting Hollie and Joshua to be the top two in the votes tonight.

So here we go! It is time to really seriously say good-bye to someone tonight, as the judges have used their save and we have to get this thing finished by August. Back in the old days, the post-save week meant two eliminations, but I guess the public shaming of Jermaine Jones bought us an extra week. Taylor Hicks is in the audience! My first thought is: How did that dude get a ticket? Also in the house, the only Idol alumnus whose album I own: Elliott Yamin.

The “American Idol” Top 5 was revealed Thursday night, and it came as no surprise to a lot of “Idol” watchers that Elise Testone was the latest contestant to be eliminated. It was a bit of a surprise to me. I predicted it would be Joshua Ledet who would be the next one watching the highlight reel of their season while standing next to host Ryan Seacrest.

For the record:. The Bottom 3 consisted of: Elise Testone, Hollie Cavanagh who had a great week and Skylar Laine a fan-favorite with the country audience. The Top 3: Jessica Sanchez my prediction to win it all , Joshua Ledet who seems to be surging and Phillip Phillips who manages to keep it together, despite some lukewarm performances. But Elise was the one who went down on a night that featured:. But fans failed to truly appreciate her talent.

She lacked a “wow” factor that Jessica Sanchez and Skylar Laine offer, and offer well.
