The show began with the announcement that there were 55 million votes, the most at this stage of the game, a record. It’s always sad to see who goes home, and tonight was twice as painful since two were eliminated. In the bottom 3 tonight were Paul McDonald, Naima Adedapo, and Thia Magia. Paul made it through while the two ladies were not as lucky. It’s saddest to see Thia go because she has a wonderful voice but just didn’t stand out. Thia is young and probably will find her way to a record label.
Performances tonight were…
- Jamie Foxx and Will.I.Am
- “I Told You So” duet by Lauren Alaina and Scotty McCreery
- Katie Perry’s “Teenage Dream” was sang by Haley Reinhart, Pia Toscano, and Thia Magia
- “Band On the Run” a quartet of Casey Abrams, Paul McDonald, Stefano Langone, and James Durbin
