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!

Top 5: Where am I?

Adam is in the bottom three, but I cannot even fathom that he could go home.

Adam Lambert

Oh Adam, you never, ever pick what group you should be in. You are supposed to plop your booty down on the stage and refuse to choose.

Now look what you have gone and done. You've messed with the universe and ended up in the bottom three!

Top 5: 'Idol' birthdays and results

Who comes up with these ideas?

Did we really need to watch the remaining contestants make a cake and have a food fight?

I wonder who had to clean that up?

We find out when Danny gets a late birthday gift - the $6,000 bill to clean up. Seriously, for some icing on the kitchen floor?

On to the results.

The whole gang is taken center stage.

Matt is up first and is sent stage right. Danny, who doesn't want to say whose performances he has been studying (I bet it's Adam!) is sent stage left, where Allison soon joins him.

Kris is sent to stand next to Matt, leaving Adam in the center. And of course Adam has to pick which group and he picks Allison and Danny and he picks wrong.

WHAT?! Kris, Matt and Adam are in the bottom three?!

Color me stunned!

Top 5: For once I agree with Simon, sorta

Simon thinks this is a wide open competition and I have to say I think he's right.

I disagree that everyone sounded great last night.

The gang sings "It Don't Mean a Thing" and "I've Got Rhythm" and Matt sounds in much better form than he did last night.

The group performance is not as annoying to me tonight as it usually is, but there's a bit of a disconnect in seeing them perform classic songs in modern dress. And is Adam wearing a brooch?

Top 5: Who is going home?

** 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. **

As we get closer to crowning the next "American Idol," it gets way more difficult for me to imagine who is going home.

The show just started and I can feel the excitement in the audience air through the television.

The spin camera made me dizzy and all the dramatic lighting made me almost think they were about to beam Ryan up, but it's all good.

Here we go!
