American Idol: Season 11, Week 11 :: 9 Finalists Compete

Mar 28, 2012

This week on American Idol (Season 11, Week 11), the Top 9 contestants perform songs by their personal idols. Read Kidzworld’s recap of “9 Finalists Compete,” which aired on March 28, 2012, to discover what you missed.

Stevie Nicks

It was the contestants’ pick this week as they sang songs by each of their idols. Stevie Nicks joined Jimmy to mentor the contestants before the show. She particularly liked Phillip Phillips for his charming good looks, and told him that, had he been around when they first started the band Fleetwood Mac, they would have asked him to join!

Five Standing Ovations

This was undoubtedly one of the best performance shows in American Idol history. Not one contestant had a bad night, but some still stood out more than others. The judges agreed, and they gave a standing ovation a whopping five times!

The Best

Colton Dixon opened the show with "Everything" by Lifehouse, which earned rave reviews from the judges. Other outstanding performances included Joshua Ledet, who inspired tingles with his version of Mariah Carey’s "Without You"; Phillip Phillips, who sang "Still Rainin’" by Johnny Lang; and Elise Testone, who closed the show with an amazing rendition of "Whole Lotta Love" by Led Zepplin.

Elimination

While we didn't predict the bottom three exactly right (Heejun, Hollie and Deandre), we were pretty close. Skylar was the third member of the bottom three, along with Hollie and Heejun. Even thought this may very well have been Heejun's best vocal night of the competition, he received the fewest number of votes and was sent home.

Three Brothers were stranded on an island. They found a lamp.  1st brother: Hey! Maybe this is a magic lamp like the movies. They rubbed it. Nothing happened. They tried again. Nothing. They tried and tried again, until almost all hope was pulled from their very hearts. 2nd brother: Maybe we will be stuck here forever 3rd brother: Yeah 1st brother: Nonsense! There has to be another way Fortunately the lamp was just delayed. Very very delayed. Something appeared. It had legs, It couldn't be a genie Unknown creature: Hello. It is the genie. 1st brother:You don't look lik- Genie: Enough! Each of you have one wish. 1st brother: I wish to go home. His wish was granted. Home he went. 2nd brother: I wish to go home with my brother. 2 down, 1 to go. 3rd brother: I wish my brothers were here so I'm not lonely.
