Yep, that's right! Our final four ladies are all staying for yet another week!
After Wednesday’s American Idol performance show, placing Angie Miller and Amber Holcomb on top, we weren’t exactly sure who’d be going home this week. But as host Ryan Seacrest announced at the start of last night’s elimination round, there would be “some shocking news that [would] affect the judges and turn the competition upside down.”
He later revealed:
"The person that could be leaving tonight is…no one."
PHEW! Ryan explained that because of an extra week built into the show’s schedule and the fact that the judges hadn’t used their “save”, the girls would get to compete for another round. Though, last night’s 38 million votes will not be wasted. Instead, they’ll be added to next week’s numbers.
Despite the save, Candice Glover and Amber found themselves in the bottom two much to Kree Harrison’s surprise. Apparently, executive producer Nigel Lythgoe — obviously in the know about the night’s big twist — thought he would mess with Kree, too!
"Nigel came up to me and Kree and was like, 'So, the band knows your 'save song,' right?"
YIKES! Kree was so freaked out that she started practicing her farewell song, “singing it out loud” during the commercial break. Poor thing!
What’s more, Candice even got a surprise visit from the one and only Drake! The contestant gushed:
"I could not believe that happened… Like, I think I was too strung out to even cry. I didn't know what was going on! I was like, 'what do I do? …He just thanked me for doing his song, and he said I'm doing a really good job and to stay true to who I am. And he said that he really loves me! And that he's going to watch for me, and that he hopes that I can sing with him on tour one day."
That’s it for now. Till next time!
