LAST EDITED ON 04-19-12 AT 09:25 PM (EST)
Here's what happened:
--they perform Dancing in the Streets by Martha and the Van Dels; balloons drop at the end of the song
--Ford video ad depicts each of them as a constellation's symbol in the sky, like Colton for Aries dressed in warrior angelic garb
--Jimmy I comments go towards what each needs to do to make the finale
-Ryan pulls Hollie and Josh up first; the pals
--Josh safe, Hollie bottom 3
Elliot Yamin and Taylor Hicks are in the audience. Ryan goes to Taylor to do the intro to Kris Allen and we learn that Taylor is doing Vegas this summer. Frauen alert! ;)
Kris Allen does a really good performance of his new single and trends on twitter.
--AI does a video recap of D.ck Clark's career
--Jimmy I tells us that Skylar is the best performer in the contest.
--Elise and Skylar are the next 2 to get results; Sky is safe and E is b3.
Next: LMFAO performs. Crappy performance.
Next: Ryan brings up Jessica, P2 and Colton to center stage and Jimmy I's comments include that he finally gets that Jessica is singing songs much too old for her and THAT is why the audience is not connecting with her.
Ryan tortures Jess and then tells her she is safe.
Now down to Colton and P2; neither have been in the B3.
P2 wins the judges and Jimmy I pimp contest and is safe; Colton stays center stage and Elise and Hollie join.
Ryan tells Elise she is safe.
Implied B2 is Hollie and Colton and it is bye bye Colton. Colton "apologizes" to the judges and tells them they were right and he was not himself last night and he will use that coaching when he makes his record.
Judges shake their heads at Colton's boot. (Whom do they want to go instead? Sick of the false acting.)
Colton gets on his knees and sings the religious song he sang a few weeks ago.
And we are out.
