Scott MacIntyre is eliminated.   The judges decide not to save him.

34 million votes were cast last night…

Flo-rida and   Kellie Pickler perform tonight…

Ryan introduces Frankie Avalon–that   song was at the top of the charts the year Simon was born. Then…surprise!   Frankie appears to sing the song live.   Simon, born in 1959, is old. Ha ha.   Frankie has seen better days.

The group song comes from the year Idol was born 2002- “Can’t get you out of my head” -Wow. That was bad.   Hilariously so. I can’t tell if they were lip syncing or not, if they were, that was pretty sad.

It’s the behind the scenes of making the Ford commercial – It’s a magic show. Adam loves acting! Kris does not. Scott and Adam imitate Simon. Ha ha. The commercial itself is actually kinda cool. The song is Britney Spears “Circus”.

Before the results, Ryan asks Adam Lambert what he thought of Simon’s standing O. Adam says he felt extremely honored and thanks Simon.   Shout out to the mayor of Kalamazoo, MI from Matt Giraud.

More Idol Headlines after the JUMP…

Adam Lambert, Kris Allen and Anoop Desai stand up.   The judges are given the chance to praise Adam even more. Some big pimpin here.

Flo-rida sings his hit song “Right Round.”   Wow, metaphors about oral sex!   Just perfect for the kiddies!

Back from break, and it’s time for more results Danny Gokey stands up and he is SAFE.   Matt Giraud stands up and he is SAFE. Scott MacIntyre stands up and he is in the Bottom 3.   Allsion Iraheta and Lil Rounds stand up. Allison is safe Lil is in the Bottom 3.

Simon says there are a couple of people–one in particular–they would consider saving.

Kellie Pickler is here, singing “Best Days of Your Life”   She’s a little pitchy!   Hot dress–like her hair. She’s serenading her BF Simon. Oh wait, now she’s cheating on Simon with Randy… Gah. I remember why she came in 6th.   She’s not a good live singer.   Better than Taylor Swift, at least.

Ryan says he is sending someone back to the couches, then says, “Anoop…(pause)…stay where you are…Lil you are safe.” Mean!

Only 30K votes separate the Bottom 2: Anoop Desai and Scott MacIntyre

Back from break, Ryan eliminates Scott MacIntyre.   He has a chance to sing for his life.   The judges are pretending to actually consider a save for Scott!   He’s singing his heart out.   EEP.   He’s trying hard, but it still really sucks.   Simon looks sour.

Simon says that two of the panel thinks he should stay, and two thinks he should go.   Ugh. He was terrible. He should go.   Simon says it’s really tough.   Paula and Kara are the two that are pushing for the save.   But Simon says, “Somebody has to make a decision, and the answer is no.”

Scott MacIntyre is eliminated. The judges decide not to save him.   LOL Paula begins babbling on about how Scott is an inspiration to the entire world.   Paula Abdul–patronizing until the bitter end!
