Top 7: The building of the bottom begins

Allison looks like she is on her way to the mall in that outfit, but I guess that's OK given her young age.

She's safe this week, which I think must be a relief for her if she  watched a playback of her performance.

Now here's a shocker: Adam is safe also!!!!

Next up is Anoop, and I get that little icky feeling in my tummy because he's always in the bottom three.

This week is no exception. Anoop is yet again in the bottom three.

How come I never noticed before that he has eyebrows like Bert from "Sesame Street"?

Top 7: The gang hits the red carpet


Zac Efron and the gang from "American Idol" all on one red carpet!

Pinch me, please!!!

And after that, go pull that hat off of Zac's head. Didn't his mama ever tell him you NEVER wear your hat indoors?!?!?

Top 7: What a group of maniacs

The chairs on stage look so lonely these days as the number continues to shrink.

I don't think I have ever heard a worse rendition of "Maniac." It was all over the place!

Is there anyone who really enjoys these group performances?

If the producers want to save some time and keep the show on schedule, perhaps they may want to consider cutting the group performances, which just feel like previews of the tour to me.

Top 7: The results are in, we just don't know them yet

** SPOILER ALERT: Wednesday night’s blog will eventually reveal the contestant leaving the show. Do not visit the final entry of the blog if you do not want to know the results.  **

Lots of folks are asking me who I think is going home tonight.

I may not be able to say for certainty who will be voted off, but I can tell you who won't be: Adam Lambert.

He's been tearing up the stage every week and even on the nights when he doesn't outsing everyone, he definitely outperforms the rest of the contestants.

The show just started, and I am freaked out by the announcer's voice and the flaming graphics.

Someone is getting voted off, not sent to hell for goodness sake!

And what in the world was that look Quentin Tarantino gave the camera all about? CREEPY!!!!

Watch 'American Idol' results with CNN.com

“American Idol” went to the movies last night and tonight one of the contestants will take their final bow on the results show.

Top seven

Music from the movies was the theme and while the group as a whole didn’t exactly take Hollywood by storm, there were moments here and there – both good and bad.

It was a weird night with Quentin Tarantino serving as guest mentor and the judges critiquing in pairs. Tonight may also yield a few surprises in who lands in the bottom three and who ultimately goes home.

Do you think you know? Tune in to learn the results and watch scheduled performances by Academy Award winner and former “American Idol” contestant Jennifer Hudson and teen star Miley Cyrus.

CNN.com’s Lisa Respers France will blog live during the show. Leave your comments here or submit videos of your reaction to the results to iReport.

Has your favorite sung his or her swan song? Let us know and your comment may be used on CNN!
