The question we all want answered: Will the right singer go home? Internet buzz thought Jacob should go home last week and he didn't. It says he should go home this week. Will he? We'll see.
First though, the group sings the Turtles' Happy Together. Oh my. That was the absolute WORST. The audience must applaud for just anything. Really. Painful. Really.
Ryan did the lead in for the Ford commercial, and James mouthed the same words from the teleprompter. Funny. I'm not sure if Ryan didn't know what he was doing or simply ignored him.
Hell's Kitchen cross promo. So the kids made omelets and the chef trashed all but Lauren's. More cooking later.
Lady Antebellum was up next to sing their new single. Pretty.
We begin to get the bottom two or the bottom three. Ryan says the results may surprise us. (Oh, no!) First James is sent to one side of the stage. Then Lauren is sent to the other side. (Jimmy Iovine predicts she will be in the bottom two because of pulling back on the power note in her second song. He says fear is her Achilles' Heel.)
More cooking stuff. Ho-hum. Then Jennifer Lopez does her number. Not ho-hum. But gracious, those dropped-crotch pants were UGLY. No amount of sequins can make them look good. (I'm pretty sure she was lip-syncing since she wasn't winded when singing, but the shout out she did to the audience had a very winded voice and sounded totally different.)
More results: Jacob is sent to stand with Lauren. Haley is sent to stand with James. (So I'm pretty sure it is either Jacob or Lauren going home because there is no way I believe both James and Haley are in the bottom two after last night.) And what about Scotty? Jimmy Iovine says, whether he wins or not, he will have an extraordinary recording career. And he's the first to be announced safe. Then Ryan did the cheesy thing he's done in seasons past, trying to get him to join the group he thinks is also safe. Scotty, like past contestants, refuses to play along. So Ryan shoves him over to James and Haley and announces they are all safe.
Bottom two are Lauren and Jacob, and Lauren is not handling it very well at all. Really fighting the tears. Well, she'll have to keep the major waterworks for another night because Jacob was sent home.
