American Idol – Top 11 – Results Show

We open with a horrific group version of “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go.”  Most of them can’t get even half of the lyrics right.  What a shame.  It is, after all, my go-to karaoke song and my lead vocal from The Opportunes.

After a decent performance from Miley Cyrus and a drawn-out recounting of last night’s performances, the bottom three are announced: Paige, Tim Urban, and…NOT Andrew Garcia, but Katie Stevens.  Wow.  That “Straight Up” performance has truly carried Andrew far, and I overestimated Katie’s fan base.

That being said, Katie is not surprisingly sent back to safety almost immediately, leaving us with Paige Miles and Tim Urban as this week’s bottom two.

To continue our tween week on American Idol, and to make me feel like I am truly now an old man, we are treated to a performance by Joe Jonas and Demi Lovato.

And finally, we are put out of our misery and Paige has the least amount of votes.  And in acknowledgment of how horrific Paige was last night, Simon insists that she’s not singing for her life – they are unanimous before hearing anything – Paige was horrible and is gone for good.

To remind everyone once again of why we watch this show, here is certainly one of the best Idol performances of all time:

    Michael, thanks for the update. It took me 2 minutes to read your post. With DVR, would have taken me about 42 minutes to watch the show, so I owe you 40 minutes of my life.

      I do hope, however, that you watched Paige’s dismal performance. Worth watching for the sheer shock value.
