Ryan Seacrest announced that almost 72 million votes came in and its the biggest vote total for a Top 4 show.
Before the results, James Durbin and Scotty McCreery take the stage to sing “Start a Band” by Brad Paisley and Keith Urban. Then Lauren Alaina and Haley Reinhart sing Gunpowder and Lead. It feels like the night’s theme is country music, perhaps they’re looking for a country artist to win American Idol?
Ryan Seacrest announced that the first contestant to move on to the next round is…Lauren Alaina!
Results paused, guest performances aired: Enrique Iglesias performs “Dirty Dancer” and Jordin Sparks sings “I Am Woman,” her new single. Then Steven Tyler‘s brand new music video is shown.
Results continued, Haley Reinhart – the contestant that the judges threw under the bus last night is safe! Two girls are in the final three!
And between Scotty and James, you already know that the country singer is safe and rocker goes home. Jennifer Lopez cries. Seacrest out!
