American Idol Recap :: Thursday March 11

kids articles

American Idol has narrowed it down to the Top 7 Guys and the Top 7 Girls but there’s still more cuts to be made to get to the Final 12. Find out who sticks around and who gets the boot in this week’s Season 9 recap!


  • Siobhan Magnus dedicated House of the Rising Sun by The Animals to her dad..
  • Ellen ran onstage to congratulate Tim Urban on his not-so-horrible performance of Hallelujah.
  • Big Mike’s cover of A Woman’s Work by Kate Bush (not Maxwell!) made Kara burst into tears. Kinda makes you miss Paula, doesn’t it?
  • Who's Out?

  • No one was surprised when Toderick Hall didn’t make the cut. He’s a much better dancer than a singer—plus he’s already been on Broadway! Idol likes its singers green—Toderick already works in the music biz!
  • Lily Scott had an amazing voice, but maybe America didn’t like her styling—she tended to wear too much make-up and her gray-streaked hair made her look much older.

  • Simon buried his face in his hands when Alex Lambert got cut—just what is America thinking? Alex and Katelyn Epperly, who also got cut last night, were two of the best singers in the group! Voters seem to be choosing looks over talent this time around—how else can you explain the endurance of the Zac Efron lookalike, Tim Urban? Shame on you, voters! The show should just end now—give it to Crystal and be done with it!

  • Like A Rolling Stone

    Next week we get to watch the Top 12 in the first themed round. Michael Lynche, Lacey Brown, Crystal Bowersox, Siobhan Magnus, Paige Miles, Andrew Garcia, Katie Stevens, Casey James, Tim Urban, Didi Benami and Lee Dewyze will tackle the songs by rock n’ roll greats, The Rolling Stones.
