Who's leaving the Top 13 on 'Idol?'

SPOILER ALERT – Tonight's "Idol" blog will reveal who is leaving the competition, so please don't read if you don't want to know.

8:59 p.m. – It's always so sad to see those who are safe surround the person who is out.

Lots of tears and hugs.


8:57 p.m. – Ashthon sings the Diana Ross song again, breaking down into tears after she sings.

The camera pans to those who are safe and you can tell by their faces that it's just not good enough. Ashthon knows it's over and we know it's over.

Jennifer breaks the bad news: "Not this time baby."

Cue the goodbye song, David Cook's version of "(Don't You) Forget About Me."

8:55 p.m. – We have our first contestant who is safe and that person is:


She returns to the couch and it's down to Haley and Ashthon. And the person singing for the save is ... Ashton. Haley is safe!

8:50 p.m. – Diddy has some words of wisdom for the contestants to "keep God first in your life and don't stop, don't ever stop."

Can't stop. Won't stop.

8:45 p.m. – DiddyDirty Money performs "Coming Home," a song that features Skylar Grey.

Is it rude to say I wouldn't have been mad if only Skylar Grey and Dirty Money performed? I like their flow and the jam didn't need Diddy at all. Sorry Mr. Combs.

8:35 p.m. – Our next three victims, err, contestants are brought down front.

Lauren, Ashthon and Haley are in the spotlight. Ryan asks Lauren about her performance, which didn't exactly thrill the judges. She agrees, apologizes and tears up.

This is exactly why I worried about having the youngsters this season. Lots of stress, which can be crushing to a teen. The tension is made worse by Seacrest saying Lauren is going to have to deal with ... the stress for another week because she is safe.

So who between Ashthon and Haley is in the bottom three?

Both! Everyone else is safe!

8:25 p.m. – How the Lambs have missed you Adam Lambert.

He's back to sing an unplugged version of his song "Aftermath" and he looks super poised and relaxed. I love to see how polished the "Idol" alums are after some time off of the show.

The audience is feeling him and he hits one of his signature notes. *Cue girls screaming*

Seacrest manages to drop the factoid that Adam gave him the remix/dance club version of the song to premiere on his radio show. Proceeds from that version are going to charity. Somehow we get from there to Jennifer Lopez doing The Dougie.

Wow, just wow.

8:20 p.m. – Here we go with the first three folks in the spotlight.

Jacob, Stefano and Karen are called down to join Seacrest.

Everyone gets to hear a replay of the judges' comments, the good and the bad. And Seacrest pulls an okey doke by saying "You are all safe this evening....except for Karen."

That was kind of whack, Ryan.

8:15 p.m. – Another season, another batch of stars with something to promote.

Tonight we have Amanda Seyfried in the house with her new film, "Red Riding Hood." The "Idol" contestants are totally starstruck on the red carpet. So cute!

8:07 p.m. – That "Idol" mansion is some kind of hot!

Love that house. How do you go back to your regular life after living high on the "Idol" hog? Sweet.

Cute little Michael Jackson medley. It appears they are singing live this year instead of totally to a recorded track – at least on some parts. And what is going on with Ashton's faux-hawk pony? It seems like every season some contestant rocks that.

8:05 p.m. – Oh no! Casey is sick again and back in the hospital. Get well soon Casey!

8:03 p.m. – I had totally forgotten that Diddy-Dirty Money were performing tonight along with Adam Lambert. Diddy and DM were on the end of last season, too. They love them some "Idol!"

8 p.m. – Welcome back cats and kittens.

"Idol" just started and I am reminded of Steven Tyler's Paula-like quotes with the replay of his "plethora of passion" comment.

Can't wait to see who ends up in the bottom three, because I honestly can't call it.

    Its always got to be about race. Someone, somewhere just has to keep it all stirred up. And that comment about being scared of black people? Thats one of the most ridiculous statements Ive heard yet. Everyone knows they cant do anything to you swinging from a tree. Ha Ha Ha. The rest of them are smart enough to keep their big fat mouth shut.

    Hey! AI is great. Its my favorite reality show. I think James has it all wrapped up this season. There is alot of great talent, and aome that will definately get better with a little help. There are some, that even though they dont win, they will get a recording contracts anyways. Like Scott. Or Pia for example. Kudos to the panel of judges! Finally some music experts that know what their talking about. And know what their looking for. Only bad thing Ive got to say is... Naima has to go. And fast. Shes bad.

    Wow, is all I have to say, how can people mix racism with music auditions and american idol is about finding talent. Which I'm a fan of Scott and Pia and Casey. The rest of you are good just need to strive harder and never give up on your dreams. And as for the rest of you folks get a higher education on RESPECT.

    @Pia: I can tell by the way you write that you are young & ignorant. You should really get your facts straight before talking. N***ers do all that and more. Highest % in prison? Highest % w/ AIDS/HIV/STDS? Highest % on welfare? The list goes on & on. We have enough n**lets running aound as it is. Dont make it worse. You know they say what you lay down with is what you get up as. Educate yourself sweetheart. Yeah I guess you would be a n***er lover. and nothing beautiful is gonna come out of that. STUPID!

    I think its pretty pathetic how people are judgemental towards black people its rude & wrong. U would think that people would not be this way anym
    ore. People referring 2 black people as N!GGERS what about us white women who think black men are hot & make beautiful babies? Does that make us N!GGER Lovers? Oh well then it is what it is when this life is over we as white people will be almost extinct because the way we white men & women love layin down & making babies with black men & women. All we do is call them N!GGERS, MONKEYS, CHIMPS, & CRACK HEAD ROBBERS. But do u know what then think of us? That were METH HEADS, PEDIFILES WHO INBRED, THAT HUFF,SLEEP WITH THEIR SONS & DAUGHTERS THAT TRY 2 FIND ANYTHING 2 GET HIGH OFF OF, WHO GO DRAG THEMSELVES & THEIR KIDS 2 THE WELFARE OFFICE IN THEIR DIRTIEST, WHO WILL TAKE A SIMPLE OVER THE COUNTER COLD MEDICINE & turn it into a street drug just 2 get high. Eatin mushrooms from cow poop or licking a toad just 2 get high. Or starting Suicide cults. Blacks dont do that.

    If your so sick of all the so called racist comments, heres a solution to your problem: GET A ROPE AND START HANGING THEM HIGH! Then we wont have a problem to worry about. What an excellent solution. Dont know why I didnt think of it sooner? Now we all can have a nice day.

      I feel sorry for people like. Nothing better to do than leaving tons of racist and disgusting comments like yourself. You must have a lot of time on your shoulders. Stop wasting our tax dollars and get off unemployment. Make your time useful.

    I love how racist idiots leaving comments on an American Idol article of all places hide behind names like "smartest", "mom-o-twins" and "?" to show their complete ignorance. Here's a tip; leave your real name and phone number along with your comment next time. No need to hide behind ridiculous names.

    How sad and pathetic you are. Welfare checks are distributed on the first and 15. Go pick yours up, because obviously you are no real asset to society. The rest of us work for a living.

    Your right. if all the n**ggers would quit smoking crack and tweeking there might be more of them on AI. Cant help it if the white people rule the show. They seem to be the only ones smart enough to put down the pipe and pick up the microphone.

    Loved the Michael Jackson group tribute. His legendary mega talents and stage charisma will be hard to duplicate in my lifetime. He's a once per generation icon in the same vein as a Sinatra or Elvis. I am casting my vote for Naima. There is something quite unique about her that just fascinates me. Loved how she danced it up blending in funk, hip hop and reggae.

    Im glad Ashton is gone. She was too full of herself, thinking she was the s**t. Definately no Diana Ross. Naima should be the next to go. And what was she thinking doing that ridiculous dance while supposesdly singing? Next please.....I think itll come down to Pia vs Jacob vs James. One of those 3 will definately win. Yes, this season is the best. Ive watched all seasons before. The new ludges make all the difference. They finally picked some real talent for a change. Keep up the good wk guys.

    You know who Casey reminds me of? That wild man puppet from Sesame Street. You know the one that has drum sticks and bangs on the drums and I think he has like chains or something around his wrists. Dude is friggin' hilarious.

    And yeah..that group number. TOTALLY PRE-RECORDED. What's sad is that some of the contestants still didn't sound that great during it. You'll notice that they gave certain contestants bigger parts in the group number. This is one of the best seasons for talent, though, I must say. The difference between the first season and this one is HUGE...though, Kelly Clarkston is still amazing. That's why she beat everyone.

    There are some people that weren't in the bottom 3 that should have been there...heck...they should have been kicked out when the wild cards were chosen. Stefano should have been in the top ten to begin with. Naima...she just doesn't belong there. I bet this contest will be between Stefano and Pia in the end. They are the most solid performers by far. Vocally and visually.
