'American Idol' Results: Contingency to the Rescue?

Can't say we didn't see this coming. And when I say that, I have absolutely no idea what is going to happen tonight on American Idol. All I know is that no matter what it is, it won't be surprising, much to the chagrin of those in charge of all this madness. Our all-girl top 5 is now an all-girl top 4, but it remains to be seen when the all-girl top 3 will follow.

Sure, Ryan Seacrest promised a twist at the end of Thursday's episode, a "contingency plan" (that has allegedly always been in place) to make up for the scheduling gap that skipping the save created. But the only way it will be a shocking twist is if they eliminate no one, bring back Danny Gokey to compete in a new top 5 and announce that two people will be going home next week. Or something to that effect.

Because either someone is going home or, more likely, no one is going home. The only real question is if they'll wait until the end to make that call in what would be the latest attempt to steer the results in a certain direction.
