We're about to find out who, if anyone, will be eliminated from the Top 7 tonight as part of the Idol Gives Back special event. I'm not expecting to see an elimination, but Seacrest did say we'd get results at the end of tonight's show. I suppose those results could always be that there are no results, but we'll have to wait and see.
Crystal Bowersox absolutely blew everyone away last night and eventually rendered everyone else pretty much useless. ?I love that girl! ?Chances are NO one will be going home. ?As in the previous seasons, no one gets sent home on the Idol Gives Back night. ?They usually combine this week's votes and next week's and that will determine next week's elimination. ?BUT, they could send someone home tonight still, it's hasn't been announced. ? As long as it's not Crystal, which of course it won't be, or my guy Lee Dewyze, I don't care.
The two-hour Idol Gives Back special – which broadcast from the Idol theater as well as the Pasadena Civic Center and featured performances by Carrie Underwood, Elton John, the Black Eyed Peas, Jeff Beck and Joss Stone, Annie Lennox (stuck in London because of the Icelandic volcano) and Mary J. Blige, who sang Stairway to Heaven with a band that included Steve Vai, Orianthi, Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker and Randy Jackson – raised more than $15 million dollars.
President Obama and Michelle Obama kick off show. In a taped message, they urged participation in Idol Gives Back. Ryan introduces Queen Latifah at the Civic Center. The Top 12 Idol finalists reunite for a lip-synch performance – “Keeping the Dream Alive.” They’re all dressed in white.
As of now, here's the idols of the show. One of them will go home. They are the American Idol Top Seven:
There will be more updates regarding this. Stay tuned.
