Tonight was a long and enduring episode of American Idol. It was the two hour Idol Gives Back Special which generally brings in some great stars and celebrities. This year there were some great faces on the show but some of the stars performances were just horrid including Black Eyed Peas. But then again it is for charity.
The top twelve contestants of this season performed at the beginning of the show and there were also performances by David Cooke, Carrie Underwood, and Alicia Keys. Throughout the night Ryan announced periodically who is safe in this competition. And the bottom three ended up being Casey, Aaron, and Tim. Near the end of the show Ryan announced that the contest being sent home is....drum roll please...Tim Urban the cutie with the adorable smile that has won teenage girl's hearts everywhere.
Regardless, the show was medicore and not too overly entertaining. It also ran 25 minutes long so Tim didn't even get to sing his farewell performance. It looks like Big Mike is still going strong after being saved a couple weeks back. I hope next week the theme they chose is a little bit more upbeat. This inspirational week was quite dreary.
