American Idol 11 Top 8 – Results – Live Blog – April 5, 2012

Tonight is the American Idol 11 Top 8 results show on April 5, 2012! As far as musical guests go, we have Kellie Pickler and The Wanted. Also, Jennifer Lopez‘s full video for “Dance Again” premieres tonight during the show. Oh joy! More importantly, however, who’s going home?

You guys here at Rickey.org have predicted the bottom 3 to be: Deandre, Elise, and Hollie. Deandre is the pick to go home–as he was last week. Hollie is a super close second.

I’m torn with how the results will go down. My gut is telling me that Elise will be eliminated tonight. Whether the judges would use the save on her is up in the air. On the other hand, she just might have gained enough fans the past two weeks to push her into next week. She might land in the bottom but still be safe.

Anyways, I will be live blogging the results as they happen. So, come back soon and often for a rundown of all the action.

This…is AMERICAN IDOL!!!

FIRST LOOK – WORLD PREMIERE VIDEO – Jennifer Lopez – “Dance Again”

It’s sexy. Hot. There’s glitter! It features her 24-year-old dancer boyfriend Casper Smart. Honestly, I’ve had this song stuck in my head all freaking day for the past week. There’s also blindfolding. Check out the music video RIGHT HERE.

Ford Music Video – Scavenger Hunt: The contestants are searching the city for clues of a scavenger hunt.

Twitvid:  A classroom full of kids send Jacob a special message. Aww. He’s not going home.

RESULTS – BY DUETS – OMG 

Joshua Ledet and Jessica Sanchez are up first!

Joshua…is SAFE!

Jessica…is SAFE!

Musical Performance – The Wanted – “Glad You Came”

LOVE THIS SONG! Boy bands are taking over America AGAIN!!! The vocals seem a little off tonight, but that doesn’t matter. There are dancers in the pit! OMG. These guys are lovely and so charismatic. Check out their performance HERE.

Skylar Laine and Colton Dixon go down center stage!

Hollie Cavanagh and Deandre Brackensick are called down! OMG OMG OMG

Deandre…is in the BOTTOM 3!

Colton…is SAFE!

Musical Performance – Kellie Pickler – “Where’s Tammy Wynette”

Her 100 Proof album is a must buy, FYI. This is one of my favorite tracks from it. She really goes back to her roots with this song. Her down-home charm is what I love about her. I wanna go party with her! Her vocals are in great form tonight.

Will the judges save him??? He’s singing one of his many completely ridiculous hairography numbers with splashes of falsetto….

 

THE JUDGES DO NOT SAVE HIM!!!!

And, we are out! Thank you, judges, for not being idiots.

As for you, Jennifer Lopez, I hate your guts.

 

So, until next week. We have our Top 7!

Did the right person get the boot? Should the judges have used their save?
