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.

If you haven’t, please join the Office Pool and the side office pool down the right hand side of the blog–which you need Facebook to participate.

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.

RESULTS

Elise Testone, Phillip Phillips, and Hollie Cavanagh are called to the center stage.

Elise…is SAFE! OMG OMG OMG YES!

Phillip…is SAFE!

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!!!

RESULTS

Colton Dixon, Joshua Ledet, and Heejun Han are called to center stage.

Colton…is SAFE!

Joshua…is SAFE!

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.

RESULTS

Skylar Laine, Deandre Brackensick, and Jessica Sanchez are called to center stage.

Jessica…is SAFE!

Deandre…is SAFE!

Skylar…is in the BOTTOM 3! WOW!

THE BOTTOM THREE: Heejun, Hollie, Skylar

FINAL RESULTS

Skylar…is SAFE!

Hollie…is SAFE!

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?

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.

Nigel, can Heejun just  co host the show for the next 8 weeks?  I am going to miss him so much! :(

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 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?

OMG, i just created a huge "comment war"! hahaha delete this post! I was just trying to tell my piece. :) LOL peace!

 @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.

 @chinitony07 I couldn't agree more. :) Elise and Jessica battle finale could be a great treat! :)

 @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.

 @ArchieSue  @Ross88 i hope jessica reads your comment, she connects well IMO, maybe to others not yet... Im hoping she would still win in the end and make you a believer....

 @rezzzy  @Ross88 yeah but some people doesn't want an opinion opposed from their opinion. They think they are great, lol.

 @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.

 @Ross88  @Mikhail XO  @rezzzy i'm not seeing all this hate.  i'm seeing omg spoogin right now love and people who are between like and indifference.  i think she's good, she's just not as good as the judges and her fans would have us believe.

Ross88

 @Mikhail XO  @Joystickenvy  @rezzzy I think if Jess looks like Holly, (blonde & all american/brit looking) she would not get as much hate as she does right now. hhmmmm

Ross88

 @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.

 @chinitony07 lol you actually think the judges on this show give good advice?  ok you're just pullin my leg right?

 @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.

 @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

 @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."
