Entertainment News : Recaps :: ANTM + American Idol :: April 8, 2009
Kidzworld's recap for the episodes that aired Wednesday April 8, 2009:
America's Next Top ModelThis week was a special 2 hour episode! The girls were still a bit catty in the morning—arguing over household chores—but by the afternoon they’d put on their acting faces for lessons with Paulina in the theatre. Clay Aiken surprised everyone by stopping by to judge the competition. Tyra says she and the American Idol winner are good friends—she must have a long list of celeb bios to peruse cause girl has some famous friends!
London comes from a family of actors so she’s convinced she has an edge, and she’s right—she wins the challenge and $5000 worth of jeans! But she admits to the camera that she feels uncomfortable about trying on the jeans in front of the other girls. London needs to apply her confidence on stage to her body self image—the girl needs to realize she’s beautiful!
Cover Girl Commercials
This week the girls shot their infamous Cover Girl commercials. London didn’t do as well this time around—the rep calling her a “door to door salesman” but Celia rocked it. Tahlia’s performance was the worst, and she definitely knew it cause she wouldn’t stop whining. In the end it was Tahlia and London in the bottom two, but despite wearing some shorts to panel that Paulina hated, London hung on for another week and Tahlia whined all the way home.
The top 8 idols—Adam Lambert, L’il Rounds, Anoop Desai, Alison Iraheta, Kris Allen, Matt Giraud, Scott MacIntyre and Danny Gokey—got together to sing Kylie Minogue’s Can’t Get You Out of My Head then Season 5 American Idol alum, Kellie Pickler treated the crowd to a live version of her new single, Best Days of Your Life. Flo Rida performed next, slaying the audience with his number one hit, Right Round.
Scott MacIntyre got voted off this week, but not before Paula called him a “classy gentleman” and the rest of America said goodbye to the visually impaired singer/piano player. His farewell song was Survivor’s The Search is Over and his brutal performance reminded everyone that the right choice was made. Sorry Scott—you’re nice, but your voice needs work, buddy.
