The “American Idol” Top 5 did so awesome on Frank Sinatra night, the producers decided to bring back the group-sing medley. Thanks, Frankie.
Actually, they all looked pretty dapper all suited up. Anyway, on to the elimination.
We found out early on that Lee Dewyze was safe, which was a no brainer considering his masterful take on “That’s Life” the previous night.
Finally, we learned that Big Mike and Aaron Kelly are in the Bottom 2. Suspense at this point isn’t drawn out (we’ve already seen Lady Gaga and Harry Connick, Jr. perform by now), so we learn pretty quickly afterward that 17-year-old Aaron is out.
He goes out in style, delivering “Fly Me to the Moon” with great energy. Good on you, Aaron.
And congratulations, Top 4.
Is this who you expected? Did someone else deserve to go before him?
