I found out about last night’s American Idol results via Twitter per usual, but this week I may have done a happy dance in my apartment when I found out who was sent home. This may have been followed up by watching the results show a couple hours later with the biggest smile on my face. Jacob Lusk was finally sent home, y’all! Thank you Grilled Cheesus!
The results show itself was a little bland per usual. The Top 5 sang The Turtles’ “Happy Together,” which sounded heinous from note one, so I put the contestants on mute to watch the following video instead.
Aw, the good ol’ days of Paula and Simon on the judging panel and David Cook’s flat ironed hair.
Lady Antebellum sang their new single, “Just a Kiss.” Very pretty song, yet not anywhere near as good as their smash hit“ Need You Now.” Jennifer Lopez’s pre-taped lip sync-tastic performance of “On The Floor” with Pitbull proved that only she could get away with rhyming “ov-ah” with “love control-ah.” So talented, that one. I did very much enjoy "Jenny From the Block’s" sparkly silver “Hammer Pants.” If we were back in 1991, I would have been begging my mom for a pair just like them.
Onto the results. The contestants were being split into groups. James Durbin and Haley Reinhart in one group and Jacob Lusk and Lauren Alaina were in the other. And then there was Scotty McCreery looking oh-so adorable in plaid, who looked relieved when Ryan Seacrest told him that he was safe. And then Ryan did something that most Idol fans have been expecting for the last couple weeks to take place, “The Huff.”
What’s “The Huff,” you ask? Let me explain.
