Good news for New Englanders, however, as Siobhan Magnus and Katie Stevens gather no moss. Siobhan got the happy news early in the broadcast and Katie a bit later that they will be back to sing another week. Good for them.
The Urban legend continues.
David Cook returned and displayed ten times more energy and excitement than any single performer last night with his take on "Jumpin' Jack Flash."
Orianthi and Ke$ha? Not so much. Blah, blah, blah, indeed.
So, as many predicted, Lacey Brown was sent packing after it was determined that the judges would not be exercising their "save" option for her.
What did you think? Did the right person get the boot? What do you hope next week's theme will be? I forgot about the judges' save. Who do you think they might use it for besides Crystal and Lee? Did the car commercial seem extra long? Do you think there was actually tension between Ryan and Simon? No group sing? What up with that?
