On the April 17 episode of ‘American Idol’, the Top 7 was cut down to the Top 6. We’re almost at the finale!
We’re closing in on the finale on American Idol with the Top 7 being cut down to the Top 6 on the April 17 results show. In a pretty surprising elimination, one of the contestants who we thought might be fighting it out for the top prize gets sent home. Read on to find out whose journey ends here!
‘American Idol’ Recap: Dexter Roberts & Jessica Meuse Are In The Bottom
There is nothing more embarrassing than the extended Ford commercials that these kids are forced to do.
There’s a montage of the April 16 performances and Randy Jackson does that thing that he does that you know we’re not a fan of — implying that he was responsible for the good performances and that the bad performances were bad because the contestants didn’t listen to his guidance. Randy could be doing so much more with the time that he spends on Idol!
Jena Irene and Alex Preston are safe. Dexter Roberts is in the bottom. Thank goodness. We’d have fought somebody.
Caleb Johnson and CJ Harris are both safe. Sam Woolf is also safe, leaving Jessica Meuse in the bottom along with duet partner and fellow Alabamian.
‘American Idol’ Recap: Dexter Roberts Is Eliminated
And the person going home will be Dexter! Wow, we’re really surprised, quite honestly. He’s been a favorite — though not ours — for most of the competition. He’s what America loves in their Idols — a nice dude who sings country! We were genuinely concerned that he’d steal the title from our faves, Jena or Alex.
Dexter’s swan song is “Lucky Man” by Montgomery Gentry, which he also sang on the March 5 episode. He’s a good guy — it’s too bad, but someone has to go home! And at least it wasn’t Jena.
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Was it Dexter’s time to go home? Let us know!
