I usually don’t blog about the American Idol results but wow! I don’t know about you, but tonight was one of the best American Idol moments EVAH! Here’s the thing. Simon is right. Matt can’t win. I “hands down” put him in the bottom two last night. But watching American Idol tonight, I was literally chanting and clapping SAVE MATT! I have a few reasons why. Lil deserved to go home after last night. Lil has YET to deliver a stunning performance and Matt has at least done that. There were only two weeks left to use the save and it would have been a big bummer had it not been used. And dude, it was just good TV. I have never, ever, ever seen the crowd as hyped as it was during a results show save the finale. The other contestants were out of their seats chanting, the judges were out of their seats. *I* was out of my seat. What’s even better is next week we get to see the drama unfold of TWO contestants leaving the show. Whoo Hoo!
I know the judges were happy about it.
And look, even Simon was happy with himself after it was done.
