Elise told us after last night’s performance show! “I’m going to bring decorations for the bottom-three stools just in case,” she said with a laugh. “Erika and I are going shopping after this and just get some streamers, maybe a marker to sign the stool, because no matter how good we did, I’ve been in the bottom three the last two weeks, so I’m just kind of getting comfortable.” After the show ended, Erika chatted with the three judges about their decision not to use their one save on her, telling them they made the right decision and that they should use it for when America does something “really crazy.” Their response? “This is crazy.” Executive producer Nigel Lythgoe also came up to Erika to tell her, “If it means anything, Jimmy Iovine said you were the best last night.” – Read more at EOnline
