The second half of American Idol’s Top 24 stood up on the new stage Wednesday night. The new panel got another big introduction before they walked to their seats, and the in-house audience was giddy with excitement.
We’ve no idea why. Largely, Idol’s Top 12 Men were unimpressive (with, at best, three exceptions) on the big stage -- and they weren’t even live. All performances were taped last week, though the Thursday results will go out live in traditional Idol fashion.
Randy Jackson reminded viewing audiences that by the end of Thursday, the show will be left with a Top 10. That’s right -- a whopping 14 of them are going to be broken-hearted in less than 24 hours. “Ya gotta take it the moon today, and that’s where we’re going,” Steven Tyler told the night's performers.
Jennifer Lopez put production to a stop following the elimination of Chris Medina from this year’s American Idol competition. It was her fate to give him the bad news, and that’s when the downward spiral began. Fellow judges Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson tried to calm her down, Jackson turning to the staff to ask for “five.”
