'American Idol' Recap: Heejun Han is Eliminated and Scotty McCreery Returns to the 'Idol' Stage!
After American Idol had a rocking night on Wednesday as each of the singers sang songs from their own Idols, it was so hard to predict who would get the boot. Season 11 of Idol is really bringing on the talent week after week. But, of course, someone had to go.
After the usual filler of the Ford music video and a funny montage of the kids moving into the awesome Idol mansion, it was time for results.
Of course, frontrunner Phillip Phillips was safe and then it was between Elise Testone and Hollie Cavanagh. Who would be in the bottom 3? Elise finally got a reprieve and was safe. Hollie made her first trip to the bottom 3. She has a killer voice, but she needs to start being a little more exciting.
Then it's time for Colton Dixon, Heejun Han and Joshua Ledet to hit center stage. Finally, Ryan Seacrest decides not to trick Colton and he is safe. But Heejun is not so lucky. He is in the bottom three again and Joshua is sent to the safe couches.
The last three to get results are Jessica Sanchez, Skylar Laine and Deandre Brackensick. Jessica is declared safe first, which is not surprising. And we were pretty sure Deandre would be the one in the bottom. But that was not the case. Awesome country girl Skylar hit the bottom 3 for the first time, which was quite surprising.
So we had our bottom 3 of Skylar, Hollie and Heejun. Skylar is sent to safety and then Hollie is as well. Heejun sings to try to save himself, but alas, the judges aren't going to use the save just yet. Plus, it's worth noting that Colton, Jessica and Phillip have never been in the bottom 3. Will they be the final 3? Only time will tell!
And let's not forget about the performances of the night. Nicki Minaj sang her new song "Starships." Well sing is an overstatement. We just don't get some of these singers are so popular when they don't even sing live. Unlike season 10 Idol winner who was also on the show last night singing his new tune, "Water Tower Town." Scotty was great and he was even presented by Jimmy Iovine with a platinum record for his debut album, Clear as Day! Way to go, Scotty!
Were you surprised Heejun was eliminated? Don't miss next week's theme of 80s music on Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET on FOX.
