After Wednesday, American Idol is down to the final three contestants. The Bee Gees and Disco night weren’t kind to most of the contestants, but LaKisha Jones’ rendition of “Staying Alive” wasn’t enough to keep her alive in the competition. She now heads home.
Pink joined Barry Gibbs as the two artists singing for the evening. Unfortunately, I found nothing special about either performance. And both were quickly forgotten. The final four sang together with a melody of Barry Gibb’s songs.
In other filler: Melinda Doolittle, Jordin Sparks, Blake Lewis and Jones became the Fab Four in their latest Ford video which was reminiscent of the Beatles’ “A Hard Day’s Night.” The foursome also got to see a special screening of the newest Fantastic Four movie, The Rise of the Silver Surfer. And of course, we got to meet the cast of the film. We got to see a glimpse of Simon Cowell’s girlfriend and we learned a little about the final four contestants’ childhoods.
Apparently next week the last three contenders get to head home so I expect more footage of their family in the next result show. Lewis rounded out the bottom two this week so he’d better be on his game next week if wants to stay in this contest. But I expect to find Doolittle and Sparks in the final.
