Oh my gosh, we're going to have some results tonight! And I, for one, can't wait. I mean, can wait. Anyway, here it comes. One of these people standing in the dark...will be left out in the cold. Now that's poetic! Ryan, wearing almost the same outfit as Scott, strolls out to kick off the show.
Once again, we got a few more votes this week than last week. It's another record! It's nice how that works out. Then we see a rehash of last night's show, which is thankfully much shorter than the actual show. Looking back, I'm just happy Constantine was able to resist licking the microphone.
Ryan then announces the winning song of the big charity performance contest is...all three! Everybody gets a trophy today! You're all special! And then there was Fantasia. Not quite wearing Uggs, but close. Man, Fantasia is really showing these kids how to perform. Too bad she lost her voice. Or maybe she's trying to sound like Joe Cocker. Church choirs sure are dressing snappier these days, aren't they? If anybody was wondering, the big video board lets us know that that was FANTASIA.
After the song, Fantasia advises the contestant to act ugly. Then Ryan throws it out to Ruben and Kimberly Caldwell in the audience. But apparently somebody on camera doesn't like Kimberly anymore because all we see is Ruben. Maybe Kim was sitting behind him. Awwwwwww! Ruben's my boy! I can say that! Speaking of which, I don't know about you, but I absolutely hate it when columnists and sportswriters claim they're friends with celebrities and athletes. Which is exactly what I just did. But that's cool, because I love hypocrites.
Sure, we've had some fun tonight, but it's time to stop being nice and start being real. Nikko, you're in the bottom three. Thought you were safe sitting in first base, didn't you? The show is switching it up. Vonzell, you're also in the bottom three. If Scott rounds it out, this is going to be a quick show. Scott looks shocked right now, but if he thinks for a second he'll be feeling pretty good. What?! No! The rest of you, you're fine. Did Fantasia's performance run six minutes long or something?
Bo Bice, what do you think about this bottom three? Bo Bice says he's surprised he isn't up there since Broadway isn't his zandruh. Ryan is going to send somebody back to safety. Ryan asks the judges what they think about this week's bottom three and it all goes according to form.
Hey, who graffitied Nikko's shirt? Did they have to hold him down to do it? Or did they steal it from his closet earlier in the day? Speaking of...nothing actually, Vonzell is safe. After the break, Ryan asks Nikko what he thinks went wrong last night. Off to the side, Scott is trying to remember where his 8 button suit jacket is in case he has to pack it tonight.
And...it's Nikko. That's what you get for wearing a shirt on Idol more than once, I guess.
