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.
8:56 p.m. – Jennifer is in tears. Randy said he's gutted. I cannot believe it.
America, what happened?!?!?
This is absolutely the most shocking elimination ever on this show.
8:54 p.m. – The lights are dimmed and first we learn Jacob's fate.
Ryan says that Mantasia will be leaving us .. .to go sit on the couch. He's safe.
And the person leaving tonight is...
8:47 p.m. – I have news for you Seacrest: No one on this show needs to worry about "uber-stardom" if the track record of recent "Idol" winners is to be believed.
Ooops, I think Iggy Pop is potty-mouthing it all over the place in his performance. I'm more offended by his lack of a shirt.
First Constantine and now this. Not your finest hour, "Idol." P.S. Jennifer Lopez did not look entertained.
8:41 p.m. – We are left with James, Haley and Jacob.
Safe are James and Haley. Jacob is in the bottom three!
I have to say that I called that because I'm sure he rubbed people the wrong way with his "look in the mirror" comment.
8:37 p.m. – Media training for the contestants at TMZ. Wow, the audience booed TMZ.
I love that they shot it like their TMZ show. Poor Lauren gets picked on for falling, Stefano for being boring, Scotty for making faces and James for acting like a Justin Bieber fan when he met the Hulk.
And did Jacob just ask my favorite TMZ girl if she was single? Funny!
8:30 p.m. – Next up, Paul, Pia (boy she is stunning) and Scotty.
The judges have such strange looks on their faces. Hmmm.
The first person who is safe is Scotty.
That leaves Paul and Pia and the person in the bottom three is...
Holy crap on a cracker, I did NOT see that coming!
8:28 p.m. – Welcome back Gwen Stefani.
She's styling the girls. Why the fashion and not the singing, Gwen? I'm confused.
This is a weird night.
8:26 p.m. – So Constantine is out on the road with "Rock of Ages" and he's busy as a new dad. Good for him, he should stay busy.
8:22 p.m. – Constantine, I'm sorry to say that I really haven't given you much thought since Season 4.
But here he is, back to sing "Unchained Melody" and I see he appears to be using the same hair product. And are those skinny jeans?
Why is this happening to us?!
8:17 p.m. – And the first one safe is...
That leaves Casey and Stefano. We've seen this before, but this time the one who is safe right away is Casey.
Stefano is the first in the bottom three. Jennifer is gonna lose it if that kid gets sent home, cause that's her Boo.
8:15 p.m. – First down front is Lauren, Casey and Stefano.
Apparently, Kelly Clarkson tweeted that she has a crush on Casey. I think he should give her a call. But he should lose that crazy hat before they go out. Is it that cold in the studio?
8:10 p.m. – The Ford music video.
And I'm all about celebs pimping their latest project, but Russell Brand? He was allegedly there to advise the contestants on their stage presence, but he was more funny than helpful.
We probably all could learn from the phrase "Loosen up, take your clothes off."
8:03 p.m. – Hello rock medley.
And Constantine Maroulis returns to the show tonight? Why?
8:00 p.m. – I'm on pins and needles already and the show just started.
Who, oh who will go home tonight?
