American Idol Elimination: Matt Giraud Voted Off American Idol

American Idol Elimination: The Fabulous Four!

I can't believe we're down to the final four on American Idol! Where does the time go? So was Wednesday the night our last lady standing headed home, leaving an all-male competition behind? Or is Allison Iraheta still hanging in? To find out who went home and discuss the rest of the show, just


Well, folks, I think this elimination was one of the hardest decisions we've had to make in a long time — I mean, as far as voting for TV talent shows goes — because everyone did such a great job singing standards on Tuesday. Even Simon called performance night the "best show at this stage I've ever seen." Right off the bat, we learned that Allison and Danny were safe, while Kris, Adam, and Matt were in danger. Weird! The judges seemed genuinely stunned. I think they were a little worried Adam could go home.

In the end, they had nothing to worry about, because Adam was, of course, safe (did anyone really think that guy would be out?), as was Kris. Thank goodness — I was way more worried about Kris, as he's really grown on me and I would be sad to see him go just yet. That left Matt, who's had his ups and downs and even a judges' save this season, so I'm not surprised it was his time to go. How sweet/sad was it that he had tears in his eyes? Poor guy. I think Matt has a really good shot at making an album lots of people will want to buy, though, so he'll be OK. Farewell, Matt!

A few more thoughts:

  • The slow motion made me laugh in the Ford pimpmercial.
  • The top five bakes a cake! That food fight was pretty epic. Danny was a little touchy feely with Allison, don't you think? I wonder if it's weird for these four guys to have kind of inherited a little teenage sister.
  • During the tense elimination part when Ryan was splitting the singers up into groups, Danny talked way too much. But now I'm curious: what performers do you think he's studying?
  • I don't think Jaimie Foxx's single, "Blame It," translates very well live. What do you guys think?

Shocked Adam was in the bottom? Or was it bound to happen? Are you sad to see Matt go?
