American Idol Recap :: Friday March 19

This week the Top 12 tackled songs by the rock n’ roll greats, the Rolling Stones. Find out who impressed the judges, who disappointed and get the dirt on the Simon/Seacrest feud!


  • Ryan Seacrest stepped out of his host duties to lay the smack down on Simon! A few weeks ago Ryan summoned the courage to stand up to the opinionated judge when Simon went too far with his critique of a contestant. This week, Simon told Ryan to “get the eyeballing out of the way” and said his behavior was too “aggressive.” Are Simon and Ryan serious or is the fighting just for the camera? It’s hard to tell!
  • The Judges Save is back. That means if America votes out a contestant, the judges can bring them back if all five of them agree the disqualification was a mistake.
  • Season Seven Idol winner David Cook performed a high-energy version of the Rolling Stones’ “Jumpin’ Jack Flash.”
  • Ke$ha, aka the trashier version of Lady Gaga, writhed around onstage to perform her hit, “According to You.” It’s too bad America can’t vote her off the show!
  • Paige Miles managed to croak out a decent rendition of “Honky Tonk Woman” despite a bad case of laryngitis.
  • Tim Urban performed a reggae-inspired rendition of “Under My Thumb.”
  • Who's Out?

    Lacey Brown just didn’t cut it last night. Her strained rendition of “Ruby Tuesday” failed to captivate voters. When she found out that she received the fewest votes, Lacey sang The Story by Brandi Carlile to try to convince the judges to use their save. Unfortunately Lacey didn’t win them over and she was sent packing.

    Oddly enough, Lacey says she wasn’t surprised. “I woke up yesterday morning and had the strangest feeling that I was going home,” she said. “It wasn’t a downer moment for me; I wasn’t upset. It was just, ‘Okay.’”
