We were totally shocked by the March 6 ‘American Idol’ elimination! One of the most talked-about contestants of the season is going home — and so early!
We never would have thought that the eliminated contestant from the March 6 American Idol results show would have gone home so early. They have been one of the most talked-about contestants of American Idol‘s 13th season, but America voted them out! Will the judges use their save?
‘American Idol’ Recap: Harry Connick Jr.: ‘I’m Not Going To Belabor The Fact That You’re Great’
At the top of the episode, Harry Connick Jr. gave an explanation of sorts for his seemingly harsh judging style to the American Idol audience and to the hopefuls on the stage. “I’m not going to belabor the fact that you’re great,” he said, explaining that, as a judge, he has a very limited amount of time to try and guide and shape the talent in front of him, and that he is not a mentor like Randy Jackson and simply cannot go on about how talented they all are; to him, it’s a given. All good points, and they needed to be made! We are emphatically #TeamHarry at HollywoodLife.com and support him in all his most honorable of endeavors. Get it? ‘Cause he’s a judge. Anyway. Moving on.
Emily Piriz is in the bottom. Outrage!
My boyfriend Sam Woolf, Jessica Meuse, and Ben Briley are all safe.
Phillip Phillips is here! He sang his new single, “Raging Fire.” It was a thing! I don’t know, it was fine, I guess!
Dexter Roberts, Majesty Rose, and Alex Preston are safe.
Jena Irene is in the bottom. WE DEMAND A RECOUNT.
Tastemaker time! Ireland-born band Kodaline sang a song of theirs called “All I Want.” Wikipedia tells me that this song was featured in an episode of Grey’s Anatomy and that it was also the background for Google’s 2012 year-in-review video. You’re welcome, HollywoodLifers, for those FAST, FUN FACTS.
Caleb Johnson, CJ Harris, and Malaya Watson are safe.
MK Nobilette is in the bottom. Rude!!!
‘American Idol’ Recap: Emily Piriz Is In The Bottom
Jena is safe. MK is safe. Emily is in the bottom. What a bummer.
Time for her to sing for her life! She chooses “Stars” by Grace Potter and the Nocturnals. Remember all that drama when she sang their song “Paris (Ooh La La)?” We do. Because we never forget.
The judges are deep in conversation as she sings — save her! She totally sang her butt off.
Come on, judges! Save herrrrr!!
It’s clear that Jennifer Lopez wanted her to stay, but Harry told Emily that the decision simply wasn’t “unanimous,” which is their nice way of saying that they weren’t good enough to stay.
This is kind of a bummer! I liked Emily a lot — I’ll admit that I’ve been her champion ever since she sang “Paris (Ooh La La)” and Harry jumped down her throat for it, projecting his own fatherhood issues onto her. Well, I’m sure that she’ll land on her feet and get herself a deal soon!
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Did America make the right decision in eliminating Emily? Even if you don’t think she was Idol material, was it too soon for her to go? Or was her performance truly last night’s weakest? Be sure to vote and comment below!
