Thankfully, this week's episode was less corny than the previous week's result show. During the introduction, there was a bit of drama with bold statements done in gray lettering and shadows, but it ended with a bit of humor. After all the build up, there was Randy's face on the large television monitor behind Ryan. The camera crew shot a quick look at Randy who, along with the other judges, was furiously laughing. It was random, strange, but somehow appropriate for the show.
Next the top eleven singers performed "Wake Me up before You Go Go," which was an all around fun performance. The voices sounded a bit strange as if the tech crew had added an echo to the song, but I still liked listening to it. After their live performance there was the Ford Fiesta video. They sang "Our Time Now" and drove to a plastic bouncy ball fountain, which some of the idols jumped into. Again, there was a bit of humor when Andrew Garcia was left behind in the pit of balls as the other idols drove away. Luckily, he got a ride back home!
Ryan conducted mini-interviews with the idols as they sat on the couch waiting for the results. Ryan, Siobhan, and the camera crew focused on a group in the audience who called themselves "Siobhan-bies," a mix of Siobhan fans and zombies! The two women had fake blood and zombie paint on. It was rather creepy because I noticed them before Siobhan explained their presence during an earlier pan of the audience. Originally, I thought someone had a bloody nose in the audience! That was not the only unique and strange aspect about Siobhan's fans tonight. Her former boss was also in the audience with the Siobhan-bies sporting a rather full beard. She went on to explain that her boss refuses to shave it until she wins. I'm wondering what happens if she doesn't win?
The guest performers of the night were Miley Cyrus, who sang "When I Look at You," and Joe Jonas and Demi Lovato. The pair sang a duet titled "Make a Wave." Both performances were leagues above the guest performers of last week. I've enjoyed Jo and Demi since Camp Rock while Miley Cyrus can be a hit or miss artist. Still, the guest performers felt a little young this week. A teen audience would have enjoyed the songs more than I did.
During the various activities, the bottom three contestants were revealed. Personally, America's votes were on par with who I thought should be going home. I wasn't disappointed with the final reveal either. Even though another idol "fell," I agreed with America's decision and was still excited for next week's episode. The theme is R&B/Soul with guest mentor Usher. I'm hoping for better performance and result's episodes in the future from American Idol.
