“Idol” Results Offer Few Surprises

One male contestant remains.

We're getting down to the wire here on American Idol, and tonight's (April 4) results show sent one more contestant home. A male one. So there's only one left, if you're doing the math. But first...

The group sing number was Queen's "Somebody to Love," which worked okay considering there's about 500 multi-tracked Freddie Mercurys on the original recording. And yep, Candice Glover got the big show-stopping a cappella run at the end. All was right in the universe so far.

Record man Jimmy Iovine basically thought everybody picked the wrong songs on rock 'n' roll night, but especially didn't like Lazaro Arbos and Burnell Taylor. When asked to pick his top three at this stage, he went for Amber Holcomb, Angie Miller and Kree Harrison. "But I love Candice," he added.

The judges were also asked to pick their top three contestants, and here they are:

  • Keith Urban: Kree, Angie, Amber
  • Nicki Minaj: Angie, Amber, Kree
  • Randy Jackson: Amber, Kree, Angie
  • Mariah Carey: Kree, Amber, Candice

Notice a pattern? Only Mariah changed it up and included Candice. I'm not a genius or anything, but that looks pretty good for Kree and Amber, right?

So Kree was the first person to the top 3, followed by Angie Miller. I'd have put a thousand down on Amber being the third, and then I'd have lost a thousand dollars because it was actually Lazaro. In the top 3. Seriously? He's just not that great, y'all.

We also got performances from Idol alumi Casey James (on "The Good Life") and superstar Carrie Underwood, who sang her song "See You Again." time for the queen of the country Idols, Carrie Underwood, singing her new single "See You Again." Contestants, take note: that's how you do it. "I'm so excited for these contestants because this is gonna be them, soon. Very soon." Well, that might be a slight exaggeration in Carrie's case.

More results were next. Candice was in, thank goodness, and then Amber. So Janelle Arthur and Burnell were in the bottom two, and Burnell was the unlucky one fighting for the save. His last ditch song was "I'm Ready for Love," but it wasn't enough to win the judges over. 

Looks like Lazaro's the last man standing.
