'American Idol' Season 9, Episode 15 - '4 Finalists Eliminated' Recap

It's the first elimination show of the year! Generally, it feels like a huge loss when four contestants are eliminated all at once, but based on the lackluster performances by both the girls and the guys, I have a feeling that unless there's some huge shakeup, few tears will be shed.

But before we get to all that, we have a (lip-synced?) Top 24 performance, and 'Idol' winner Kris Allen makes an appearance, along with runner-up Allison Iraheta. We also get to see Kara's husband and one of the contestants in a bathrobe, so let's get started!

Seriously, though. Let's talk about that Top 24 performance. They sang 'American Boy' by Estelle, and it was totally lip-synced, right? Crystal and Casey both looked particularly confused by the whole thing. I know that some of the group sings were lip-synced last season, but is that the way it's always been? It seems to me that there used to be more live singing, but I could be pining for a bygone era that never really existed.
