“American Idol” traditionally sends their Top 10 contestants out on tour when the season ends, so Wednesday’s (March 24) results show, which established that Top 10 was a milestone in the “Idol” journey.
Ryan Seacrest sent Tim Urban and Paige Miles to the bottom three early in the show, which was no surprise. Both singers were in the bottom three last week as well, and their performances on Tuesday night (March 23) left a lot to be desired (to put it mildly).
Miley Cyrus proved herself worthy of her mentor title with a performance of “When I Look at You,” the song from her upcoming movie, “The Last Song.” Say what you will about Miley’s music, clothes, or twitter abandonment, the girl knows how to rock a stage and connect with an audience (even if her audience is sitting at home watching on TV).
Though her performance of “Big Girl’s Don’t Cry” wasn’t phenomenal, Katie’s turn in the bottom three was less expected, especially because Kara loved the performance. Fortunately, Katie only had to worry about going home for less than a minute – Ryan sent her back to safety almost immediately.
Joe Jonas and Demi Lovato, the latest in a series of Jonas love connections to come out of the Disney machine, took the stage next to perform their new single “Make a Wave.” Jonas was one of the guest judges during Tim’s audition in Dallas.
After performing, Joe took a moment to wave to Tim, who was sitting in the bottom three stools. “How’s it going, Tim? I… guess it’s not going so well right now.”
After the commercial break, things got a little better for Tim, when Paige was eliminated. Before she even “sang for her life,” as Ryan said, Simon told her that she wouldn’t be getting the judges save. “It’s just not working,” he said, but he encouraged her to go back to her roots and try to be more like she was when they began the audition process.
To her credit, Paige’s performance of “All Right Now” — while not fantastic — was much better than her version of “Against All Odds” from Tuesday night.
