Last night was the American Idol Top 20 Results Show.  Here’s the recap:

First up is the fellas.  Looks like it’s between Todrick Hall & John Park.  Park is certainly the one who will go home between the two.  Yes, both got slammed for their Tuesday night performances, but I think Hall has a greater chance (and potential) to go farther than Park.

Sure enough, Park is the one with the lower votes.  Seems like a super nice dude.  He kept his head up high, was VERY positive, and actually did a great job with his farewell song.  I wish he would have done THIS performance Tuesday night when he sang John Mayer’s “Gravity” – he might have stayed!  Instead of just sitting on the stool looking down, he was moving around the stage and connecting with the audience.  This guy has a great voice, he just needed to show some personality while singing.

Next up for elimination…Jermaine Sellers & Andrew Garcia.  Once again, it would seem like Sellers would be the one to go.  Even though Garcia really didn’t do well with his performance, he’s been an early favorite as “one to beat” – and he’s 1,000% a better performer than the egomaniac.

And there you have it:  Jermaine will not be back next week.  His exit interview was…confusing.  When asked about if he’s had a positive experience here or if he thought his being outspoken was a negative, he started off by saying “no” then went into a litany of half sentences talking about how you can’t be taught to sing like him, he grew up singing in church, God is great, and so on.  Man, he is all about himself!  After that, he was able to murder Marvin Gaye’s beautiful “What’s Goin’ On” one more time…for God.

We took a break from chopping down dreams for Danny Gokey (Season 8 contestant, 3rd place) to perform his single “My Best Days Are Ahead of Me”.  Turns out he’s doing country now.  Interesting.  He explains afterwards that it was Randy Travis who suggested he go into country, and while I don’t like country music, Travis was correct.  I had never thought about it, but it does seem to be a good fit.

On a side note, I had forgotten how last season Gokey would use WAY too many extra words to get to the point of what he was saying.  Love the dude, but if you had a Gokey dialogue transcript of last night’s show, you’d notice that he used 10 sentences to maybe say TWO sentences’ worth of content.

Moving on to the ladies for elimination.  I’m pretty steamed about the first two: Didi Benami & Michelle Delamor.  BOTH of them deserve to be in the final Top 12, and I think Benami is going home – and it would be the fault of the judges!  If you read yesterday’s recap of the show, you’d know that while Didi was simply amazing, the judges were brutal.  No clue why, but she deserved better since she’s one of the best on the show.

Turns out I was wrong, and Michelle is going home.  I think Kara must have been right when she said it was because she didn’t think Michelle connected with the viewers.  In my opinion, the little finger gloves and singing Creed didn’t help either.  But she was really sweet and greatful as she sang her version of Creed’s “With Arms Wide Open”.

Last but not least, the final two girls in danger of being eliminated are Haeley Vaughn & Lacey Brown.  Pretty obvious who is going home, as Simon just confirmed.  Sure enough, goodbye Haeley.  The girls were all pretty emotional, but this was the right decision.  She seemed pretty positive, but by the time they finished rolling the clips of the four that got the boot, she was in tears.  So she sang the Miley Cyrus song “The Climb” as the show wrapped up.

What did you think?  Did the right people get eliminated?
