HOLLYWOOD - Well American Idol record producer Jimmy Iovine got it wrong again, as he had predicted that Lazaro Arbos would be the one going home on this week's show.
Iovine and a lot of American Idol viewers including some of the judges were shocked when it was learned that not only was Lazaro not going back home but he actually ended up in the Top 3 along with Kree "Happy" Harrison and Angie "Bubbly" Miller.
Former American Idol winner Carrie Underwood performed her latest country hit titled "After You Finish Rotating The Crops, We're Gonna Have Us A Picnic."
Ryan "Peaches" Seacrest remarked afterwards that he was glad to hear that Carrie's latest song was not about a woman keying her cheating boyfriend's vehicle, or about a woman getting caught in a horrible tornado, or about a woman who discovers another woman's name tattooed on her boyfriend's stomach.
This song was about a nice Oklahoma picnic complete with pulled pork, cornbread, okra, cream style corn, and grape Kool-Aid.
After Underwood had finished singing, Ryan asked her how things were going. Carrie smiled and said that she wanted to assure everyone that her and her husband Mike Fisher are not getting divorced like it had been reported in the supermarket tabloid Just Saying.
The two contestants out of the final seven who found themselves in the Bottom 2 this week were Burnell Taylor of New Orleans and Janelle Arthur of Oliver Springs, Tennessee.
Seacrest soon announced that the Cowgirl was safe and so Burnell had to sing once again and hope that the judges would use their one save.
He picked to sing the song "Downtown" by Petula Clark and many felt that he had actually sounded quite a bit like the English singer.
But as evidenced by Mariah Carey's tears and Keith Urban turning his back on Nicki Minaj, Randy Jackson informed Seacrest and the entire audience that it was the end of the road for Taylor.
Several audience members said that they could hear Mariah cussing out Nicki underneath her breath.
Minaj, who looks like a circus clown, had flat out stated several weeks ago that if the judges did not see fit to use the save on Curtis Finch, Jr. then no one else would get it.
SIDENOTE: Woody The Wonder Woodchuck had predicted that Amber Holcomb and Janelle Arthur would be safe and that Lazaro Arbos would be the one going home. Woody is now 18-3 for the season.
