There were a few mild surprises, and a couple that I would have done differently (of course). It’s a strong group on the male side, maybe a little ballad heavy on the female side. I’ll take some time this weekend to send my power rankings, and I’ll tie up the loose ends then. Next week Idol goes….


No more mulligans, kids, so don’t forget the words.

PS: Casey Abrams went to the hospital today for severe stomach pains. He has to stay overnight, and the men are taping their final 24 performances tomorrow. Casey has to perform or he will be disqualified. This would be a huge blow to the show, as you all know. Casey is amazing. Cross your fingers.
