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. – It's down to Paul and Stefano.
They both have had a good ride, but one person has to go home tonight.
And that person is...
Paul! Stefano is safe!
8:55 p.m. – Seacrest reminds us that only girls have left since the competition started.
Well that ends tonight as Haley is safe!
8:50 p.m. – I forgot to mention earlier that Pia is in the audience watching. I'm sure tonight is bittersweet for her.
Rihanna announces that some fans will actually get to be in a section on stage with her at her concerts. That kind of rocks.
8:45 p.m. – Color me stunned that Anita Baker and Chaka Khan are at "Idol" tonight.
They must be there to see Rihanna sing "California King Bed," which she does. The vocals sound off to me, but beautiful presentation with the dancers rolling around in the "sheets" hung from the ceiling.
8:39 p.m.- Here we go with more results.
Firs safe out of the quartet is .. .James, who looks weak with relief.
As for Stefano, he is in the bottom three.
That leaves Jacob and Paul and the one in the bottom three is ...
Our bottom three are Paul, Haley and Stefano. I totally predicted that.
8:36 p.m. – Does the lack of any more female contestants mean that Jacob, James, Paul and Stefano have to sing together?
Apparently. They sing "Sounds of Silence" and "Mrs. Robinson" by Simon and Garfunkel. Nicely done.
8:32 p.m. – So Kelly thinks Casey is yummy. Watch your back, Haley.
8:28 p.m. – Welcome back Kelly Clarkson to the "Idol" stage.
That girl has come a long way. She sings "Don't You Wanna Stay" with Jason Aldean.
Love it and she looks great.
8:24 p.m. – Hey Rob Reiner.
He talked to the gang about music for movies. He's so funny. We learn that almost all the contestants want to act and Rob thinks Casey could be "Seth Rogen's younger, bass-playing brother" in a film.
8:17 p.m. – Wow.
We jump from the feel-good of Casey and Haley's act to some results.
Scotty, Lauren, Casey and Haley are up first and everyone is looking pretty serious.
And after the nation voted, our first person safe is ...
Next up to head back to the couch is ... Lauren!
That leaves Casey and Haley and the one in the bottom three this week is no other than ...
Haley! Casey is safe!
8:14 p.m. – Haley and Casey are our next duet, singing the jazzy "Moaning." They sound good together and should take that show on the road. I wonder if the rumors about them dating are true, 'cause they are looking mighty cute together. Their performance gets a standing O from the judges.
Might we have a jazz "Idol" this year?
8:10 p.m. – James, Scotty, Haley and Stefano got to be zombies in this week's music video.
I guess that's cool if you are into that type of thing.
8:04 p.m. – We are back to singing the duets and Scotty and Lauren sing a Lady Antebellum song. Me likey.
8:02 p.m. – What is that get up J-Lo is sporting? Oh well.
Rihanna and Kelly Clarkson both in the same night? Yes!!
8:00 p.m. – The show just started and I have no idea who is going home tonight.
I love that.
