American Idol Recap: 8 Boys - 6 Slots = 2 Goners

Let the old man judge, the young man interview and the contestants prove themselves on the stage. After this week, the top 12 finalists will be chosen. Six boys and six girls. Those remaining 12 singers will be featured on the American Idol Season 6 CD. Next week, we'll get it down to the top 10. That's who will be coming to an arena near you for the AI tour. Ok, I'm buying it Chris Richardson. He's authentic and it's sold. From hip hop to tonight's country, he makes it look so natural. The tour is waiting for someone like Chris. His rendition of Keith Urban's, "I Wanna Cry"is a keeper... like a season 5, Ace Young "Butterflies" dvr keeper. Here's another performer trying out different genres and picking songs to suit him. Blake Lewis is totally believable. He may have had the judges "All Mixed Up" on what song he was singing, but they all were sure about one thing - keeping things current will bring him back next week. Although I knew what he was singing, I found this annoying -- Dawg: "Didn't recognize the song." Paula: "was interested" didn't know the song." Simon: "Didn't understand a word you sang, but you stood out in the crowd." And the mystery continues... Blake's been trusting his instincts this season... taking the beat tonight from his favorite band. Ryan comes out to say it was a 311 song... but no one ever answers the question of what the song title is. How does no one answer the question - three times over?
