Top 5: One less in the pack now

** 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. **

So was the save wasted?

Matt is over and out. I'm more shocked that the show ended on time than I am that Mr. Giraud is heading home.

Were you surprised? Do you think Matt is destined for a big career? Did you really think Adam might go home?

We want to hear from you. Post your comments below or head over to iReport to submit videos of your reaction.

Your comment or video may appear on CNN!

Top 5: The journey has come to an end for...

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

Ryan tells us that after 47 million votes, the highest of the season, we have our contestant who is going home.

Matt Giraud

It's Matt!

WHEW! That was close. Now I can breathe again. I feel like I was just totally toyed with, but it was good TV.

I'm going to miss Matt and his hats. Well, actually I'm really going to miss making fun of the hats, but still I think he is talented.

My condolences Kalamazoo!

Top 5: Blame it on Jamie Foxx

Ohhhhh, I blame T-Pain for this foolishness.

Jamie sings his new song "Blame It" and he is doing that computerized voice thingie that I hate.

T-Pain usually performs on the song with him and he's not there, but that stupid vocoder is.

Jamie can sing, the beat is hot and he can perform and that's what I want to hear. Not a computerized voice!

He's worked up a sweat and he really seems to be digging the show. He manages to sneak a promo for his new movie in along with some words of wisdom for Matt and Adam. (I still can't believe I have to type that!)

Top 5: Turn down the lights


Kris is safe over Adam? Are you kidding me?!

Adam and Matt are our bottom two.

I love, love, love Kris, but I am beyond shocked. Are the producers just manufacturing drama because so many people have been saying Adam is a shoo-in?

Lambert nation has got to be all a-Twitter right about now. Keep your fingers crossed, Lambs!!!

Top 5: Remember Taylor Hicks?

Hey, didn't this guy win "American Idol" a few years ago?

Taylor Hicks

I like him with the shorter hair and the guitar. He sings his new single "Seven Mile Breakdown."

What is that, country, bluegrass or what? He's still rocking the harmonica and he looks good, nice and svelte.

Out of all the "Idol" winners he's the one I remember least. Is the Soul Patrol still in effect?

Top 5: Strut your stuff, Natalie Cole

Natalie Cole has had some health challenges lately and I guess that's why she looks so thin.

Her voice is also not very robust as she sings her new single "Something's Got To Give." It just seemed a little off. And I love her lots.

Maybe it's the gold dress she is wearing, but I immediately started hearing the "Solid Gold" theme in my head. Didn't she host that show for a minute back in the day?

Best wishes to you Ms. Cole. It may not have been your best tonight, but you are a class act!
