Idol Elimanation Shocker Is Best In Series History
It was not long before Roberta and I thought this was going to be one of the best American Idol seasons ever. We loved the three judges of Randy, Steven and J Lo, the all new set, and the new production. But NOTHING prepared us for what happened tonight!
In our opinion, this was the best regular season show ever. The drama was simply incredible, it was like a great film thriller, with one twist and turn after another. What a nail biter / edge of your seat episode!
As the group of 11 sang the Motown classic "Signed, Sealed, Delivered" to open the show, the man himself, Stevie Wonder, rolled out on his piano to sing along. He then sang "Happy Birthday" to judge Steven Tyler!
Then, the hugely successfull country band "Sugarland" performed thier current big hit "Stuck Like Glue". They were great, but more good times were to come...
For the next big surprise, since quite a few of the guys were into pro wrestling, host Ryan Seacrest brings out "The Hulk" - Hulk Hogan!!!
The next performer was Jennifer Hudson, the only Idol Contestant ever to win an Oscar - and she came in 7th that season! She sang "Where You At" to a standing ovation - So much for what the voters know...and that leads us to tonight's "Save Shocker"...
Casey Abrams is considered by many critics to be one of the top potential finalists. He makes every song his own, and Abrams is also an excellent musician. The first shock for us is that he was even in the bottom three!
And then - he is voted off the show? We could not believe it! I told Roberta: "They are going to use the save"! The judges were so sure they interrupted the band, shut down the song - and told him he was safe!
The crowd went berserk, Casey - who has serious health issues from stress - was shocked! He could not believe it! The audience was yelling "Casey! Casey"...It was pure pandemonium! What a night!
Plus...All of the final 11 get to go on the summer tour!
Watch on Fox next week as two contestants will be going home to form the final 9...
