The top three contestants pay a visit to their roots in their hometowns and find out what song the judges picked for them via a product placement text message. So who stole the show and which blond-haired, blue-eyed hunk’s time is up? Read on as I predict Idol future and re-watch the performances.
So I’m gonna go out on a limb and predict that it’s finally Casey James‘ last night on the American Idol stage. His warbling, country voice doesn’t stand up to the powerful bellows of Lee DeWyze and Crystal Bowersox. And if he somehow makes it into the final two, then I’m going to assume voters are tone-deaf.
Check out the contestants’ best performances below, coincidentally being the song the judges picked for each them.
Casey’s song choice: “OK, It’s Alright With Me” by [lastfm]Eric Hutchinson[/lastfm]
Randy and Kara’s choice: “Daughters” by [lastfm]John Mayer[/lastfm]
Crystal’s song choice: “Come To My Window” by [lastfm]Melissa Etheridge[/lastfm]
Ellen’s choice: “Maybe I’m Amazed” by [lastfm]Paul McCartney[/lastfm]
Lee’s song choice: “Simple Man” by [lastfm]Lynyrd Skynyrd[/lastfm]
