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
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.
RESULTS – BY DUETS – OMG
Deandre…is in the BOTTOM 3!
Hollie…is in the BOTTOM 3!
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.
Elise…is in the BOTTOM 3!
BOTTOM THREE: Elise, Hollie, Deandre
Hollie…is SAFE!!!! OMG OMG OMG OMG
Elise…is SAFE!!!!! YES!!!
DEANDRE IS ELIMINATED
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?

Got Something to Add?
So, I just did some research on the Guy-Girl ratio of the Top 7 across all seasons. In a nutshell, the last time the Girls outweighed the Guys in number in the Top 7 was Season 3...
Here's the breakdown:
Season - # of Girls - # of Guys
11 - 4 - 3
10 - 2 - 5
9 - 2 - 5
8 - 2 - 5
7 - 3 - 4
6 - 3 - 4
5 - 3 - 4
4 - 2 - 5
3 - 5 - 2
2 - 4 - 3
1 - 4 - 3
Looks like we are on an upswing of Girl Domination!!!!
it's time for him to go. hope to see the bitch face goes home next week. hollie needs to step up or else she will go home after the bitch face. just sayin. :)
Well, he spent most of his run making horrible song choices and painful performances outside of "Master Blaster", so when he wasn't bad last night, it was still DeBarge and a little too little a little too late. If he would have done something like Fine Young Cannibals "Drives Me Crazy", he may have squeaked by. I think Jimmy just hated him so he was not given the mentoring he needed all around.
I feel good about tonight.
-- I got to see Kellie Pickler live in HD, singing one of my favorite songs from her album, which is one of the best REAL country albums of the year.
-- Hollie & Elise didn't go home, which makes me happy even though they didn't have great weeks. The judges went WAY too far in their criticism of Hollie this week. I think, as that "dude" Seacrest says (only P2 would call Seacrest "dude" and think he's cool), "America disagrees."
-- The "dude looks like a lady " judge especially just went wacko this week. Makes me wonder if there's not more to this story. Maybe he still thinks that every 18-year-old girl wants to sleep with the dessicated remains of a former rock star and is upset because Hollie shows no interest. So I'm happy "America disagrees" and basically told him to shove it.
I love how they overpraise to high heavens, and then when it comes time to save, they're like, "errr ... meh."
just hope elise does well next week, if she gets voted out cuz america and the judges are botards then fine, but I don't want her to go out on something like last night
I just love how the judges phrase it like America putting DeAndre in the B3 was a wrong decision, but Elise was completely right. And her placement in the B2 won't help her at all. God, these judges are so helpless and whacked out of their minds--and bless the hearts of the public that actually listens to them.
its strange past 2 or 3 weeks one of the best performances (by the judges) are the ones going home... everyone should screw up from now on... lol
Well, at least I got the one point in the pool that the judges' save wouldn't be used. I'll do better next week. `
i don't think they'll save him. j.lo will want to since she over praised him so much, but i think they'll save it in case they need it for jessica or colton
@jlscott13 Finally!!! That is awesome. Maybe the curse on Idol girls has been broken this year. I hated seeing the most talented contestants get sent packing before their time just because they were female.
@jlscott13 Nice research. I agree. Season 3 has an all-girl top 4! That was the reason why they had the Donna Summer theme. Imagine having a Donna Summer week with P2 in it. LOL
@markboyd26 by "bitch face" I do hope you're referring to JLo.
@rezzzy Or Terrence Trent D'arby's "Wishing Well".
@Ross88 maybe p2 will shock us with his angry, angry falsetto
@jlscott13 she's starting to pass randy as my least favorite judge. i wonder if the robots from MST3000 are available. they might give more valuable feedback than the idol judges
@jlscott13 She wasn't going to save him, that's all bull crap for tv. Come on now...
@Joystickenvy Same here. She needs to come back swinging next week. Hopefully the theme isn't totally bogus...
@Lombe deandre's not white and he doesn't have a guitar and well lets just say he's not the most masculine of the peen possessors so it might be a step in the right direction, but just a tiny one ;)
@Lombe finally after seasons of peen..
@Joystickenvy They'll save it for Elise you mean... those two will always be top 3 along with Phil.
@JulieBarbara Well, on a conspiracy theory note, last year completed the whole "Kristy Lee Cook" curse, so it's very possible ;)
@Joystickenvy Or maybe joshua's phlegm-producing gargle falsetto scream
@ArchieSue He was already a wildcard. How many lives can this guy have?!
Having said that, this was a good performance for him, so it's too bad he was booted now.
@ArchieSue LOL, still, I hate her. lol
@ZarkeMulgore i don't know if they'll save her or not. i think they recognize she's one of the better singers, but I think they (unfortunately rightly) also recognize she isn't going to win. if it gets down to the last week they can use it they might, but otherwise they might let her go just in case they need to save one of their tcos
@Ross88 Yeah - about that "phlegm-producing gargle falsetto". . . how come everybody's okay with that but not Deandre's nice falsetto? I ADORE Deandre!
