'American Idol' Results  
Well, we've got our results from the top 24.

Well, I'm obviously happy about Lauren and Casey making it through. However, I'm quite bummed that the three voices that I can't stand (Haley, Jacob and Paul) made it through. Ah well, I'll give them a shot each week, but I imagine I'll be exercising my FF button quite a bit.

Of the wildcard performances, I gotta say that Steven made a believer of me. He sounded fantastic. Ashthon and Kendra did nothing for me. Naima easily got the spot, in my opinion. Ashthon was better than Kendra, and since Naima made it through too, I'm okay with it. I was thrilled that my beautiful Jovanny Baretto got a chance to perform again, too bad I wasn't horribly impressed with his performance -- and I'm a fan. :( Robbie did really well, but I liked Stefano better and I'm SO glad he made it through.

I'm so very sad about Brett not getting another shot. :( I loved him so. He just picked a horrible song choice. I liked it enough simply because I loved him, but, man. So bummy. I also would have liked to see Tim Halperin and Rachel Zevita get another shot, but ah well. Honestly, I wish they had just called out the top ten and let all remaining fourteen sing and make the choice from that.

Some I like, some not so much, but what else is new on Idol?

Ugh, I can't believe Haley made it either! She of the sex kitten faces and skin-tight dresses? :shudder: She'll be an effective shield for Lauren, though...

(I'm baffled that Ashton made it through...just baffled. Naima, I get, but...Ashton? And not even a second chance for Brett? Whatevah, Idol. ;p )

I missed the first 15 minutes, but there were rumors that David Cook is singing this year's "boot song" (for lack of a better word -- when the contestants leave)? Was that confirmed? Did we see that at all? He tweeted about working on something "special" for tonight's show, but of course, they ran long (and I didn't see all of it! :)

I fast-forwarded through the end, so if there was something with David I missed it. Sorry. :(

ETA: Ah, just saw this on ONTD. He did a take on "Don't You Forget About Me." Here's the post with a listen-to. I can't imagine I won't love it.

Yeah, just a few seconds into it and I already love it. So good!

Oh, awesome -- thanks so much for the link!!! :D Aww, I love his voice...amazing. :) It will be such a treat to hear him every week (hope it helps his new album sales...whenever the album comes out ;)

(And I love that icon -- YAY! Such happy memories. :D )

I'm really disappointed that not!bb!Lauren didn't make it. :( I really liked her. But Lauren Alaina is there and that makes me really happy. :)

Yeah, I would definitely have preferred Lauren T. over Haley and Ashthon. Even Naima.

Definitely. Haley is just such a weird decision.
