Recap: Top 8 Revealed


After another evening of lackluster performances by many of our Idol hopefuls, will one more contestant be sent home, or will the judges have mercy on the lowest ranked singer? We'll find out after performances from Lady Gaga and last season's American Idol winner, David Cook.


Hey everyone! I was thinking about something today: I don't know about you guys, but I'd be pretty pissed if I scored tickets to a "live" taping of an Idol results show and all I got were two pre-taped performances, a pre-taped product placement video and a really poorly lip synched group number. Amiright? It makes me appreciate the fact that I'm recapping from home in my pajamas while eating some mint chip ice cream.


After a dizzying Ford music video, the Top 9 lip-synch Journey's anthem, "Don't Stop Believing." Is it me, or is it like, completely sacrilegious (musically speaking, of course) to lip-synch Journey?! It's just wrong! Even more wrong? They stick poor Scott behind a keyboard to play some fake music! Scott sings his "solo" so far from the microphone, it's just painful to watch. At least Gokey tries to hide his lip-synching behind his mic. And Adam, you just made me stop believing. Please stop tonguing the microphone when you fake sing. Ew.


Next, they show us a little video about life as an Idol, complete with crazy schedules, photo and video shoots, rehearsals, interviews, red-carpet events, etc. It looks like a lot of fun, but completely exhausting. I actually think this is a pretty cute video and gives us a little more info about the Idols' personalities. They all genuinely seem to like each other. Once we're back on stage, they spend a few minutes doing impressions of each other - all in good fun, of course. Oh, why won't they make my night and do one of Simon, Paula or Ryan? Pretty please?
