American Idol 7 Recap - April 16, 2008

And then there were 6.

Tonight's episode really pissed me off because Ryan Seacrest and the rest of the gang played with the public's head regarding the bottom 3 until about 10 minutes before it all ended. Idiots.

So to start, the gang sang "One Sweet Day," which was nice.

Then there was a recap of the evening before.

Then Ryan began calling out the contestants:

Jason Castro - Please stand to the left of me
David Cook - Please stand to the right of me
Carly Smithson - Please stand to the left of me
Kristy Lee Cook - Please stand to the right of me

Upon returning from commercial, we saw the gang perform in another cool Ford commercial in which they sang "I Want to Break Free."

Elliot Yamin took to the stage to perform one of his songs called "Free," and at the end of his performance, he opened his hand to reveal the message "We miss you mom." She passed away recently and it was touching. He looked really different with new white teeth, a mop of hair and a beard to boot.

Then Ryan called out more contestants:

Syesha Mercado - Please stand to the left of me
Brooke White - Please stand to the right of me

Then we went to commercial again and returned to take some phone calls that were crusty as hell. By the way, David Cook is single.

Mariah Carey then showed up looking hot to sing "Bye Bye," but when I saw her diamond-encrusted mic and stand, I was disgusted.

Finally the last contestant was called out:

David Archuleta - You are safe.

Then David Cook and Syesha Mercado were told to switch sides. So one side had David Cook, Jason Castro and Carly Smithson. The other side had Kristy Lee Cook, Syesha Mercado and Brooke White.

Ryan asked David Archuleta to go and stand next to the group he thought was safe. By the way, David Archuleta was wearing the Michael Jackson/Thriller jacket for some reason.

David Archuleta refused to pick sides and just sat on the stage with his legs crossed. So Ryan told him that if he wanted to pick the right side, he'd have to head towards the David Cook, Jason Castro, Carly Smithson side.

So the bottom 3 were:

Syesha Mercado
Brooke White
Kristy Lee Cook

Then Syesha was told she was safe for another week. So who got the boot?

Kristy Lee Cook was kicked off American Idol 7 tonight. Some of you may think it was a long time coming, but I thought she was improving with every week.

Anyhow, til next week.
