It was getting down to the wire, and the judges only had 2 weeks left.... Did they use the save?
It took only 30 minutes for everyone to find out, but we still had to get there. After a raucous opening (with the crowd absolutely loving the judges), and a quick reap of last night, it was time to reveal the first person:
After last night's performance, this made me VERY happy, but would the next result shock me or make me happy?Oh HELL yes it did, because it was Jena Irene!!
That's 2 down everybody, but it was time for a special guest who was no stranger to the Idol spotlight. Season 5 contestant (who went home WAY too early) Chris Daughtry took the stage with his band and performed their hit "Waiting For Superman." This was fantastic! Chris sounded great, and I personally am a huge fan of the track.
Unfortunately, we needed more results.
The next individual that was moving on no matter what: Caleb Johnson!!
Immediately followed by: Jessica Meuse!!
AND NEXT: Alex Preston!!
Okay, to be really honest, that was the one that I was worried about. I expected Alex's name to be called much sooner, so I was getting very upset when his name wasn't being called. This guy could WIN the entire competition.
We had our bottom 3 though: Malaya Watson, Sam Woolf, and CJ Harris
But only one of them would escape the final chopping block of the bottom 2, so who was it?
Ryan announced who had to fight for survival, and that person was Sam Woolf. Ugh.
Ready for another twist, though?
That's right: the judges used their one and only save tonight on Sam and his former contestant/friends were VERY excited. CJ immediately ran onto the stage and hoisted Sam up while the rest tried to hug him.
This also means that next week, 2 people go home. Was Sam only given another week? Or will he redeem himself and push forward?
Until next week Idol fans!!
