Big night. Randy Travis and Carrie Underwood sang together on the Idol stage. These are two of my favorite country singers so I was in (pardon the expression) hog heaven! Extra cool because Randy was the one who got to tell Carrie she was being inducted (or whatever they call it) into the Grand Ole Opry. (Gotta say I wasn’t too crazy about her hair. Has she cut it off or was it was tucked up?) But I got goosebumps listening to them sing “I Told You So.”
Not only that, but we got Brad Paisley too. Another favorite singer of mine. I use one of Brad’s songs as a ring tone, and I love it every time the person it’s assigned to calls me because I get to hear Brad sing for a few seconds.
Side Note: Don’t you think Danny Gokey is doing for glasses on guys the same thing that Sarah Palin did for glasses on girls? Regardless, I love those specs he wears. What would Randy say? They’re the bomb.
The bottom three tonight were Allison, Michael, and Alexis. The two girls in the bottom three surprised me. Right now there are seven guys to four girls this season. More shocking. It wasn’t Michael at the bottom. It was Alexis. The judges said they were considering saving her, depending upon her performance. However, I was fairly certain they wouldn’t use their “rescue” vote this early in the season. Plus, her performance wasn’t that great. Emotions, I’m thinking. And I was right. They didn’t save her.
Wishing you the best, Alexis.
