Who got voted off American Idol on May 19 was revealed Wednesday night. Who got voted off American Idol on May 19 was decided based on Tuesday’s night of two performances, where the Top 3 contestants all performed one song of their choice, and one that the judges chose. It was an interesting night, but it was unclear which two contestants would be surviving this week on the show. Those performances, unfortunately, would end up dictating who got voted off American Idol on May 19, and who would be making it into the Top 2 for next week’s season finale. In addition to that question was whether or not this episode of American Idol was going to run long as well (again).
The 2010 American Idol Top Three
Last week it was Michael Lynche that went home, with no clear revelation of who was in the bottom two with him. It showed that Crystal Bowersox might be at risk though, as she was the last contestant to be told that she was safe on the May 12 elimination show. Would Crystal Bowersox survive another week of the competition? Or could she be at risk out there on her own now? Would this be the week that Casey James failed to get enough support to stay on the show? Only the results show would know for sure!
The American Idol Results Show on May 19 was based on the performance videos that follow:
The American Idol May 18th Video Performances:
With the guest performances planned for the May 19 results show (Justin Bieber, Travis Garland), it meant that there would probably also be a long delay until the results were finally read. This is one of the very few weeks where fans don’t mind as much filler though, because most of the show was taken up by the footage of the Top Three visiting their hometowns this past week. There were quite a few touching moments that could have been ruined by early results, so when it gets to this point of the season, it becomes almost acceptable for them to run a tad long with their episodes. Hopefully not too long though, because it could extend some DVR’s too far into the 10:00 hour.
