American Idol 11 Top 9 – Results – Live Blog – March 29, 2012
Tonight is the American Idol 11 Top 9 results show on March 29, 2012! As far as musical guests go, we have Scotty McCreery performing his new single “Water Tower Town” and Nicki Minaj. So, who’s going home?
You guys here at Rickey.org have predicted the bottom 3 to be: Deandre, Heejun, and Hollie. Deandre is the pick to go home–as he was last week.

It’s been rumored that Ryan Seacrest mentioned this morning that tonight we would be in for a “shock.” Hmm. Either he’s bluffing to goose ratings…or we will actually see a shocking elimination tonight. I predict that the judges will have to use their save tonight.
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!!!
Big Aerosmith Breaking News!!! Steven Tyler announces the tour and he wants to dress up like a lion tamer in “The Global Warming Tour.”
Eric Benet pops out and comes out to congratulate Deandre on his performance. Well, he won’t be going home then…
Ford Music Video: It’s centered around TV’s and creating a giant TV wall. They are also dressed up like rockstars.
The Top 9 Contestants moved into the mansion this past week. They have a pretty sweet pad.
Elise…is SAFE! OMG OMG OMG YES!
Hollie…is in the BOTTOM 3!
Nicki Minaj – “Starships”
She’s a Grammy nominee, we’re reminded. Whoa. Her boobs are everywhere, but her colorful dress is pretty fierce. She has this mermaid-ish and beach theme going on with her backup dancers. I gotta hand it to her, this song is pretty catchy. There’s lots of confetti! She wants to be a guest judge!!! OMG. She’s getting fresh with J.Lo. THROWDOWN!!!
Heejun…is in the BOTTOM 3!
Scotty McCreery – “Water Tower Town”
Season 10 Winner! Lest you forget. This is one of my favorite tracks from his debut. It’s a a syrupy sweet cliche of a song, but fits him to a T. I LOVE SWEET TEA! Do you guys like sweet tea? This guy, so charismatic and works the crowd. There isn’t any surprise why he won last year.
Jimmy comes out to give Scotty a platinum plaque for his Clear as Day selling 1 million copies.
Skylar…is in the BOTTOM 3! WOW!
THE BOTTOM THREE: Heejun, Hollie, Skylar
Heejun…GETS THE BOOT.
He’s singing “A Song for You.” Will they save him??? I’m gonnnnnna go with a big, fat NO.
THE JUDGES DO NOT SAVE HIM! HEEJUN IS ELIMINATED!
Thank you, America and judges, for finally making a good decision. The teaser earlier in the day about shocking results was nothing but a goose. The only thing shocking tonight was Nicki’s outrageously delicious outfit. Hollie has gotten boring–she has yet to go uptempo–and Skylar was lackluster last night compared to many of the other performances. Hopefully they both bounce back next week and Deandre is eliminated. I totally lost all my points this week. I give up trying to predict these things. Heh.
NEXT WEEK’S THEME: The ’80’s
Did Heejun deserve to get the boot? Who should have gone instead of him?
Got Something to Add?
Freemantle arsehats are taking down video and live feeds as soon as they pop up. Need an alternative to youtube.
Ugh! i missed it! So it's heejun then? Where's the shock there? haha.. At least he was able to showcase his serious voice last night..Cmon people he sang good last night! :)
What is with the judges - Last night it seemed that J-Lo took a stupid pill. Her comments were beyond ridiculous - and telling people to vote for Deandre? That's not what judges are supposed to be doing. It makes the whole thing look rigged - like it's a production decision, not the public vote that matters. Also, the judges keep putting down Hollie, like they're trying to get rid of her. They build up Deandre - who is so off-key and annoying. The only one who really hit a homer last night was Elise.
why are there a lot of people hating Jessica? I just can't decipher. I think it's more of a shocker to see Elise in the bottom three. Now that's EPIC. :)
@jlscott13 colton should do flock of seagulls. he's got the hair.
@jlscott13 i'm hoping she has manage to reinhart her way into contention. i loved how confident she was last night. basically like yeah i rock, you got something to say about it?
@shamannora It' call the Nigel script....:)
@shamannora it was way too obvious last night they are killing american idol.
@shamannora j-lo doesn't need a stupid pill. she makes her own the natural way.
OMG, i just created a huge "comment war"! hahaha delete this post! I was just trying to tell my piece. :) LOL peace!
@Ross88 simply because she is the biggest competition.
@Ross88 Because Jessica is a horrible little pageant bot programmed from birth by her tacky mamma. She's one step above Toddlers and Tiaras. Oh - and also - she's a major PLANT.
@Ross88 No one hates Jessica, she is a front runner right now and she has peaked too soon. Idol fans like to see contestants improve. Jessica is too perfect technically but she sometimes doesn't connect. She is still definitely top 4 at least.
@Ross88 i dont get it either all this hate....
@Joystickenvy LOL. He totally should. I feel this Elise works the best for Elise :)
@Ross88 Comment wars rule - good job mate :D
@chinitony07 I couldn't agree more. :) Elise and Jessica battle finale could be a great treat! :)
@rezzzy Now that is uncouth.
@ArchieSue @Ross88 I think jessica is a great technician, except when she gets all shouty and screechy and she has a good voice. she just doesn't have any character or style and no connection to her material. I think that's all very appropriate for a sixteen year old singer, but doesn't make for a very interesting performance. if she doesn't believe her own press, she'll be very good some day.
@Mikhail XO ulol.
@Ross88 totally agree with you.
@Mikhail XO who started it?
@Mikhail XO @Ross88 Exactly. She does not strike me as an artist. She strikes me as a well trained craftsperson. The performing arts unfortunately attract fame hungry parents. The best thing that could happen to Jessica, for her own sake, is a to go out 5th place, get the extra Disney $$$. Hopefully 19 will get her a CAA agent who makes sure she gets a good attorney so her pimpmamma doesn't take most of it, - so she can get a good college education and decide which direction she truly wants, whether it's singing or whatever.
@Mikhail XO cant believe you hate your race, tryin to be white? europian?
@rezzzy First of all, she's not horrible. Second, she was not forced by her mother to do all the singing. Her mother saw her potential and her talent that's why she supported Jessica with her endeavors. Third, it's Jessica's choice to sing and become an artist. She is definitely beyond your description of her as a pageant girl or a step above Toddlers and Tiaras (which is a show that I totally hate). Just my two cents. :)
@Ross88 How so? She claims to be unemployed and is using her child. It's one thing to encourage a child in the arts - another to pimp them as a commodity.
@Joystickenvy lol go ahead
@chinitony07 i could use the money. "jessica's in it to in it dawg!"
@Joystickenvy ok you'll be the next judge
@chinitony07 lol you actually think the judges on this show give good advice? ok you're just pullin my leg right?
@Joystickenvy yes i guess she should believe in you than the mentors and judges from the show.
@chinitony07 how is not thinking jessica is the best thing since sliced bread hating her? i think she's a very talented sixteen year old, who is also a boring performer who doesn't connect with her material. i hope she works on that instead of listening to people blowing smoke up her ass.
@Joystickenvy i'll rest my case, lol. a hater will always be a hater.
@chinitony07 i never said he wasn't good at what he does, but having an eye for people who will sell doesn't mean you're right about everything that has to do with singing, plus i've already stated that i don't think he actually thinks she has soul. he just wants people like you to think she does so she'll sell more records :)
@Joystickenvy please do research on jimmy's achievements
@chinitony07 that's why they have jimmy i spinnin, because people like you believe him :)
@Joystickenvy well thats your opinion, and i believe an opinion from the experts than.......
@chinitony07 if you'd read a little further you'd see that I don't like holly. jessica is better than holly, but it has nothing to do with having more "soul." and yes i heard what he says. i don't agree with it and i think he is just spinning cuz he doesn't want another wgwg win
@Joystickenvy did you hear what he says? or you are just tryin to throw also jess for your untuned Holley?
@chinitony07 jimmy was just tryin to throw holly under the bus because he sees the writing on the wall. no way even he actually thinks she has "soul."
@Joystickenvy your comment is exactly the opposite comments of Jimmy and Tommy H.
