Idol Chatter: The Live Blog #7.2: The Top 9 (Results Show).

[I wanted to do this last season, but I got the idea a few episodes too late. I do admit, I watch American Idol. I really didn't start until a couple years ago, though (my mom was a much bigger fan). Similar in style to the Live Survivor Blog over at Blog Cabins, Idol Chatter (pun and all) will be a play by play of the episodes and what I think of what's happening. For those that don't know, just continually refresh this page to get new updates as the show goes on.]

After an actually pretty decent Lennon/McCartney episode last night (including both a bagpipe and a Diggeridoo), it's time for the results. Who is in the bottom? Who is going home? I figure the Bottom 3 is Andrew, Aaron, and Tim... with MAYBE Katie instead of Tim? And I think Tim might be going home (or Aaron?). I really have no idea. Let's just hope this results show isn't nearly as annoying as last week's.

8:01: "This... is American Idol!"

8:02: Uh oh... there are apparently shocking results tonight. This worries me.

8:04: The Top 9 are now performing a group song for Lennon/McCartney.

8:06: I just totally realized that Crystal, Katie, and Siobhan are the only females left. I guess it didn't click with me before. Despite that fact, I still think a girl (Crystal) will win. But Lee's starting to give her a run for her money. Not quite to her level yet, but if he keeps it up... he still has quite a few more weeks left to keep improving.

8:11: Of course we aren't getting to the results yet. It's time for the Ford music video. Does anyone actually care about these? Really?

8:13: Time for the results! Siobhan is up first. I... think?... she'll be safe. I really have no idea tonight with this promise of shocking results. And...

8:14: She has to stand in the center of the stage and wait. Crystal stands up.

8:15: She has to join Siobhan. Katie stands up. OK... Ryan's doing his thing where he makes groups and then has the last person choose where they think they should be. I always hate this little trick from Ryan. I think it's cruel to the contestants. Anyway, she joins the other girls in the center of the stage. The three girls standing alone.

8:16: Crystal is safe. Damn right. And so are the other two girls. So all the girls are safe this week. Alrighty then.

8:21: We're back. Oh, Adam Lambert will be the mentor next week. Katie's pretty excited. And Siobhan should be freakin' epic next week. Anywho, Jason Darulo is singing both "Whatcha Say" and "In My Head." Say what you want about modern hip hop, but I actually like Jason Darulo (despite him saying his own name in every song he sings). His songs are catchy and fun. He's obviously not lip syncing here, but it's not all that bad. Certainly not as bad as Usher and... well... everyone last week. And...

8:24: WTF? They just did some black-and-white choppy video thingy. That was strange. Anyway... his dancing is pretty good, and it isn't interrupting his singing ability all that much.

8:30: And... OK, we're STILL not getting back to the results. Instead, we're given another singer. This time, a previous Idol runner-up, David Archuletta. He's performing the song he did during this theme week when he was on, "Imagine." And he's still closing his eyes as he sings.

8:35: Alright, back to the results (finally). Lee stands up. He's moved to the far side of the stage to wait.

8:36: Big Mike stands up. He moves to the close side of the stage near Ryan.

8:37: Casey stands up. He joins Lee on the far side of the stage.

8:38: Aaron stands up. As we talk to the judges, I want to go out and say that Ryan is gonna make Tim choose which group to go to. Anyway...

8:39: He stands next to Big Mike. I'm thinking Mike's group is gonna be the bottom. Tim stands up. He joins Lee and Casey. There goes that theory. Andrew stands up. And...

8:40: Surprise surprise, Mike and Aaron. I guess Ryan isn't doing the "choose your group" thing tonight. If he says Lee, Casey, and Tim are in the Bottom 3...

8:41: OK, so Big Mike, Aaron, and Andrew are in the bottom. What exactly is shocking about this (maybe besides Big Mike... who wasn't even all that good last night?).

8:42: And Aaron is safe for another week, leaving the Bottom 2 as Big Mike and Andrew.

8:47: Of course, before we can get to the final results, we have to hear another singer. Rhianna. And she's totally lip syncing. I actually don't think she was moving her mouth at one point while the audio was going. You know, I've never understood this. Since when are rappers, hip hoppers, R&B singers, and country singers rock stars? They always sing about how they're rock stars or doing rock'n'roll... um, no. Rhianna, Lil Wayne, and half of any recent country stars... you are not rock stars. Lol, Rhianna has now given up with the mic. She threw it down, grabbed a guitar (which she's probably not even playing), lip synced a couple words (that she doesn't even have a MIC to sing aloud), and then proceeded to ignore the rest of the lyrics.

8:55: It's down to the results. It's down to Big Mike and Andrew. I'd say Andrew based on the past, but if the "shocking" comes in here, I'd say Big Mike. And the one going home is... Big Mike?? Holy crap. I didn't actually expect that. I wonder if the judges will use their save tonight.

8:56: He's singing for his life... and of course he's doing Maxwell. I figure the judges are gonna save him. So will they do it?

8:59: Yes. Yes they will. Big Mike's staying around another week. But this means that TWO people will be going home next week. Well... I'll see y'all next week.
