American Idol 5/10/12 Live Recap: Top 3 Revealed

On tonight’s American Idol, results from last night’s show will be revealed! from millions of idol hopefuls, we have narrowed it down to the top 4, but tonight, another American Idol must go home. Joshua, Phillip, Jessica and Hollie are about to find out who goes home next. Find out what happens on the show, as we give you live updates, only here on Nerdles!

The show begins with a performance from the top 4, singing “California Dreaming” by The Mommas and The Papas. These idols are all really talented, and it’s sad that someone has to leave again tonight. Now, these idols feel the competition growing in them, as the selection for American Idol slims down to 3 tonight.

First up, it’s Phillip Phillips. Coach Jimmy Iovine gives his run down on last night’s performance, and he says that Phillip came out of his own last night, when he sang “Have You Ever Seen The Rain”, and even more in “Volcano”. Fans really love Phillip Phillips, as the girls in the studio scream for this idol favorite. Well, he’s cute and he can sing, but can he make it to the top? Hang tight for the results, because Ryan just sent him back to sit on the couch.

Up next, it’s Hollie Cavanagh! Her first song, “Faithfully” was great, and she received praises from both judges and Coach Jimmy. However, her unfelt second song brought her down, saying that she didn’t understand the emotion of the song, and this might just send her home tonight.

Now, American Idol winner David Cook returns to the idol stage to perform his single, “The Last Song I’ll Write For You”. David shows them what a real idol is all about, singing his heart out and showcasing his amazing talent on stage. David is well-deserving of the American Idol title.

Back from the break, the elimination continues as Ryan calls for Joshua Ledet. His first song choice, “You Raise Me Up” was a flop for Jimmy, but his second song, “It’s A Man’s Man’s Man’s World” was remarkable for him. He says Joshua was captivating, and he would want to see the performance over and over again.

Last but not the least, it’s the overly talented Jessica Sanchez. On her first song, Jimmy got a little tired of her old tricks, talking about the growl that should be kept shut. On her second song, “And I’m Not Telling You”, she absolutely nailed the song, obviously wishing that she wrote the song. Jimmy said she gave everything in to this performance, and Jimmy was in shock and awe with her performance for round 2.

Now, its time to find out who’s safe and who’s not. But before anything else, we must watch Jennifer Lopez’ performance of “Dance Again”. She comes out in a one piece jumpsuit, looking beautiful and perfect as ever. But we’re not here for that tonight!

The results are in, and the lights are low. We’re about to find out the eliminated idol for tonight. Ryan reveals that Joshua is safe, then Jessica is safe, too. Now, it’s Phillip and Hollie who are up next. The suspense continues, as Ryan takes a few moments before he makes the final announcement.

Phillip is safe, and Hollie goes home tonight.

The top 3 of American Idol: Joshua Ledet, Jessica Sanchez, and Phillip Phillips. Who will be the next American Idol? We’re about to find out! Good night everyone!
