'American Idol' Recap: The First Finalist Eliminated

Well, "America," if that is your real name, the Top 13 have performed for your votes and one will go home tonight, but not for lack of trying. Everyone tried SO hard last night, that is undeniable. But some were better than others, several tried too hard, and some were just beaten by a really tough song catalog. One might suspect that Elise Testone didn't try as hard as the rest of her competitors, and we're still trying to figure out whether she gives a rat's ass about this whole competition or not. It's one of the best things about her.

In a "one-time only twist" (Nigel trying to figure out what will work to mix up the show while keeping the ratings), the bottom girl and guy will each be revealed tonight, and the judges will choose who stays and who goes. We think it might be Jermaine, because he "thought it was pretty good," then basically shrugged and walked off stage. And he went third! I suspect that, despite a reaching performance from Shannon Magrane, the judges will make an effort to keep the girls around this season.
