Ah, Movie Week. It’s American Idol at its corniest. While I wish the show would do away with theme weeks altogether for the sake of staying current (next week is 80’s Week, so that’s not happening anytime soon), sometimes we do get some startlingly great performances. This week was not one of those times. A week full of out of tune performances (I must be sounding like a broken record at this point), surprising voter turnouts, Kenny Loggins, Jennifer Lopez promoting her single for Dreamworks’ Home with a laser light show dress, and two weeks in and the judges have already used their magical save.
I mean, really? Two weeks? This has happened once before with Casey Abrams back in Season 10, but that was a totally deserving choice. Here? I just can’t accept it especially after seeing the hokiest, toneless performance I’d seen this season.
But first, here’s everybody else.
