The goal, besides winning, on ‘American Idol‘ is to at least make it into the Top 10 so that you can be included on the Summer tour. One contestant won’t have the privilege, but the two other singers in the Bottom 3 should feel really lucky that they get to continue on.
Harry Connick Jr. performed a medley of his songs “One Fine Thing” and “Come By Me” and reunited with Manfarid Zaidi on stage. I’d let Harry hold me any time. Later, Mali Music made a great impression on the audience with his performance of “Beautiful.” Maybe the Idol audience won’t make up his fanbase, but I think this will be great exposure for him. Jennifer Lopez also previewed a bit of her video for “I Luh Ya Papi.” It’s a hell of a lot better than the song, and she revisits that infamous Versace dress.
Based on Wednesday night’s performances, JLo didn’t think the Bottom 3 made sense. I predicted that two guys would be occupying those uncomfortable looking stools and I was right. Ben Briley, Sam Woolf and Majesty Rose were up for elimination. While Sam’s performance was a bit boring, Majesty chose the absolute worst kind of song for her voice, but I don’t think Ben was all that bad. Still, he ended up going home after the judges decided not to use their save for him.
