Entertainment News : Recaps :: ANTM + American Idol :: April 15, 2009
Kidzworld's recap for the episodes that aired Wednesday April 15, 2009:
America's Next Top ModelThis week the girls had to take on the role of the Creative Director for a fashion shoot—with the winner receiving a much-coveted photo spread in Seventeen magazine. It’s the Creative Director’s job to oversee all aspects of the shoot including make-up, lighting, hair and styling. The better the girls understand how a shoot works, the better models they’ll become.
The theme of the shoot is “street style with attitude” and the girls have to choose their final shot from 15 possible frames. Allison takes charge quickly and Jay says he’s never heard her talk so much—she’s usually hiding behind her hair. Fo isn’t happy receiving London as her model since London’s recent weight gain might limit the wardrobe options. London styles Allison but Jay yawns at the hipster look she dresses her in. Aminat doesn’t manager her time properly and Natalie’s hair is still in rollers with only four minutes until she needs to be on set. Teyona wins by styling Celia in an edgy skirt.
The girls get a 5:30 am wakeup call from Jay who brings the hair and make-up team and a surprise guest—R&B sensation, Ciara! The challenge is to play a rabid Ciara fan—which shouldn’t seem hard, but Amina couldn’t get in synch with the star and London had too much tension in her face. Allison looked like a ferocious cat in her photo and Teyona kept it fierce and fabulous. Nigel complained that even though Allison looks great in photos, she’s a yawn to work with on set—a one look wonder. In the end London was sent packing but the remaining six girls are jet-setting to Brazil!
The top 7 idols—Adam Lambert, L’il Rounds, Anoop Desai, Alison Iraheta, Kris Allen, Matt Giraud and Danny Gokey—made some movie magic when they performed Maniac from the soundtrack to Flashdance.
The cameras followed the idols to the movie premiere of 17 Again where they got to shmooze it up with the actors. Zac Efron was in the American Idol studio too—looking adorable as always, this time sporting a casual look topped off with a cozy wool hat.
Jennifer + Miley = <3
Jennifer Hudson returned to Idol to sing her latest single If This Isn’t Love, belting it out and proving that bringing in this year’s save rule is a good idea—Hudson got voted off in season three only to go on to win an Oscar for Dreamgirls[kwlink 7360] and kill it in the music scene. [kwlink 7679]Miley Cyrus was on the show too—singing The Climb to promote her the new Hannah Montana movie.
Matt Giraud Saved
Danny Gokey and Matt Giraud were in the bottom two but America saved Gokey despire a lackluster performance of Lionel Richie’s Endless Love. The judges pulled out their one and only wild card for Giraud and he’s safe for another week. But Simon warned the remaining 7 idols: "I wouldn't be so quick to congratulate him. Number one, two people are going home next week now. Second piece of bad news, next week is disco week."
