LIVE BLOG - Elimination night

8 p.m. And there you have it, folks. Are you satisfied with America's and the judges' picks? Let us know!

7:59 p.m. Tatiana is in. Oh the drama returns. Homegirl is looking like a crazy person on national tv. Tears, flapping arms and that hideous dress remind us of why we love train wrecks. Matt is heading to the Wildcard show. He's gonna "bring it". Last minute change according to Paula ... the judges pick Jesse for her "bluesy voice." Anoop is moving on y'all. Simon looks super SMUG with that announcement.

7:51 p.m. Von is the first Wildcard Pick. Judges agree ... he needs to leave the hats at home. Kara is being super dramatic in announcing they are bringing back Jasmine tomorrow night. Kara wants Jasmine to "kill us" with her vocals. We really don't think Kara has a good grasp of the English language. Paula's pick is Ricky. And Ryan didn't even give him a chance to speak. It was a hit and run.

Oh, Ryan called Simon Darth Vador. Simon's retort: "quit being a smart ass."

Megan is moving on to the Wildcard show. She is going to "sing her heart out" to make it into the Top 12.

7:47 We just got a glimpse of Michael! We think the Top 9 are looking fab. Simon is now detailing how and why they are picking the Wildcard choices. He said it was a team effort to pick the 8 Wildcards who will perform tomorrow.

7:45 p.m. Was it just us, or did Ryan seem annoyed that Jorge thanked folks in Spanish? Paula wanted to hear his "accent" last night. He was just bringing it home for her tonight.

7:41 Jorge did it! He's going through. Can we just say upset. We so thought Ju'Not was going on to the Top 12.

7:39 p.m. Nathaniel and Kristen are grouped together. We just gotta say, whoever styled Kristen tonight did a bad job. She is sporting some really awful Britney Spears extensions that need some taming. Oh, neither made it through. Felicia and Von are out too. It's between Ju'Not and Jorge. Jorge looks like it's a thousand degrees on that set and he might blow chunks. Irony from his little comment earlier about freezing.

7:30 p.m. Scott is in the top 12! Good for him. Ryan is telling him that he got a standing ovation.Scott thanks audience because this "means more to him than anything." Randy thinks Scott's "gonna keep it hot ... all the way through."

7:29 p.m. Ariana says she regrets last night's performance because she wanted it to be more contemporary. Shocker! Ariana is not in top 12. Taylor is anxious and not through to the Top 12. Alex would rather "lose being himself than win being somone else." LIAR! Guess he should have been someone else, because he is not in the Top 12. Kendall and Scott stand together to find out who's moving on and who's not. Tension mounts.

7:20 p.m. Kara tells America she is expecting "ridiculous" vocals from Lil this season. We think Kara needs a thesaurus. Lil is giving us another flawless performance of "Be Without You". Can we just say, this girl is looking and sounding great. Nothing ridiculous about her!

7:18: And Lil Rounds is in the Top 12. We rejoice. She is adorable.

7:17 Holy smokes! Nathaniel is without headband ... and complaints about the judges' comments last night. Jorge is sharing touching story about Puerto Rico. Ahh, it's adorable that he thinks it's freezing in California. It's so not. Felicia is rocking the sideways pony tail and is "letting her heart show on her sleave." Ju'Not said he had asthma attack during Hot-N-Cold. Poor guy!

7:13 p.m. And we're back and taking a look back at some of last night's performances - the great, the bad and the worst. And yes, all of Ryan's snarky comments to Simon are tossed in for fun as well.

7:07 p.m.This Katy Perry tribute reminds us of High School Musical ... the Unrehearsed Years. It's making us more cold than hot.

7 p.m. Oh Paula. What are you wearing? It looks like a curtain.

6:45 p.m. It's time to get out those pins and needles Idol fans, the show starts in 15!


  1. Question: If Scott makes it to the Top 12 are all the group numbers going to involve choreography where he and half the cast sits the whole time? I hope not because that was boring as hell.

  2. I'm sooooooooooo sad about Ju'Not! I thought he should be in the wildcard show. Poor choice judges!!!!!
