America picked its top 10. Once again, Kristy Lee Cook squeeked by. Other than that... it's about right.
Amanda Overmyer, Kristy Lee and shockingly Carly Smithson had the least amount of votes this week.
Ryan of course left the ladies waiting in agony -- tossing to a commercial before telling one of them they are going home. Kristy Lee, who knows exactly what it's like to be in that position, mouthed Ryan's spiel "after the break."
While the others will take off for our hometown's in this summer's tour...
It's off to the open road for biker babe, Amanda Overmyer. She's smiling? Now?
No longer caged to the confines of American Idol boundaries... Amanda is finally free.
Ok.. this picture (above), you can tell is a forced smile.
Let's just pretend we can get into that head of hers. As Kristy Lee hugs Amanda, what is the rocker thinking?
Get your hands off of me, you...
The American Idol Songwriters Competition:
You don't have too much longer to get in your song to AI for this year's contest.
Deadline is March 31.
Contestants pay a $10 entry fee.
The song will be played live in front of an AI audience and will be released by season seven's winner.
Ford Music Video Challenge:
This is how you can get on the set of a weekly music video by answering video questions.
Winners will also be eligible for the grand prize: two tickets to the finale, $5,000 and a 2008 Ford Focus.
Tonight, they showed us how a Ford video was made. The contestants looked like they were having a lot of fun.
Season 5's Kevin, aka Chicken Little was in the crowd. This is the time in the competition where it all ended for him. He missed the tour by one week. Fellow competator, Kellie Pickler was tonight's star performer.
This year's Pickler equivalent is Jason Castro. Not that the dumb blonde bit is his schtick, but he is a tad naive and AI producers seem compelled to show that side of him on a weekly basis.
The sounds of what's to come on the tour will be coming to us next week, when the top 10 perform together for the first time.
