American Idol: The Pressure Cooker Night

Last week’s cheesy themed auditions for the ’50’s is finally over and 42 contestants remain, as they got one final shot to sing their own song of choice for the judges, hopefully they chose their song wisely.  Now, each contestant gets to walk down the plank or “The Green Mile” to find out their fate, if they stay or if they get sent home.  There will only be 24 left standing after tonight’s reviews, then America gets to vote on their fate.  Last night, 14 contestants made it through to the next round, 8 girls and 6 guys.  In the end, there will be 12 girls picked and 12 guys who will make up the TOP 24 contestants on American Idol.  This was their toughest part of their journey, as for some, it will be their start to stardom and to show America how they can shine as a singer & performer, and for the others who did not make it, their journey to be a star might have ended…but there is always next year! 

One contestant in particular, we are glad was sent home last night – Richie Law.  Richie is the obnoxious cowboy who stated in a prior show “I did not come here to recycle music, I came here to make music“, and all that he did was state that “he was the NEXT American Idol”, was rude to everyone, did not follow directions well, annoyed everyone, bad mouthed everyone, and in one clip we noticed that he punched a girl in the face on the bus ride to Las Vegas.  Even if Richie would have made it to the Top 24, America would have surely voted him off without a doubt.  (Sorry Richie!) 

Anyhow, listed below are the top 14 who made it so far:

 

 

 

  • Jen Hirsh, the girl next door
  • Haley Johnsen, pop star in the making
  • Elise Testone, no frills rocker chick
  • Erika Van Pelt, cool DJ
  • Bailey Brown, second time is the charm for this country singer
  • Chelsea Sorrell, another country singer (has Idol gone country?)
  • Jessica Sanchez, a young diva
  • Brielle Von Hugel, bossy brat (gets that from her Mom)

 

  • Creighton Fraker, eccentric musician
  • Joshua Ledet, the soul singer with a great voice
  • Reed Grimm, a showbiz natural
  • Heejun Han, this guy can really sing
  • Phillip Phillips, in it to win it
  • Colton Dixon, destined to win

Last night ended with a cliffhanger, as they left us wondering what was the outcome for Adam Brock.  Adam has been one of our favorites this season and we would be sad if he was sent home at this point.  We are keeping our fingers crossed to find out tonight on what his fate will be and hopefully he will be saved to become one of the Top 24.  The one thing that we saw a clip on last night, was someone jumping into the water from the stage.  Did anyone see that?  Maybe tonight we will see who jumps in.  We also have high hopes that Eben Franckewitz and David Leathers also make it to the Top 24 as well.  We’ll find out the outcome of the remaining contestants tonight, so stay tuned!

Nikita out!
