Amazing.

Joshua and Jessica are the class of this group, and neither has had less than a brilliant performance all year.

Skylar and Colton are also excellent. Everyone else is middling, and Holly Cavenaugh had the worst performance of the night.

All this prom talk takes me back...Graduated 1964..after the prom, which was at the old Pennsylvania Hotel in NYC, about 50 of us went to a nightclub in midtown..we saw the Smothers Bros, and Trini Lopez was the opening act...great show..we were all under 18, so of course worried about being able to buy drinks. Our table, 12 of us..lucked out..waiter..an old guy..comes up..looks at us..smiles..says hi kids..let me see your smiling faces..you're all over 18, right?..we all nod like crazy..you wouldn't lie to mem would you?..we all shake our heads NO..like wet dogs...OK..he then says..what do you all want to drink.

Our other friends, at the same place..didn't get served..However, there was a problem...that was the first time I ever heard of a TAB at a club..or how dangerous it could be..we never asked for seperate checks..and when the bill came..we were..well..stuned and beebed..I remember the guys all huddled, literally emptied our pockets...and still had to borrow some $$ from several of our dates..though they were all in good spirits about it as they were all also happily inebriated at that time..

Afterwards, like at 2am..we did what kids had been doing in NYC for decades..rode the Staten Island Ferry back and forth until dawn...then we all went to one girl's house..she lived in Manhattan..where we'd all left changes of clothes earlier in the week..went to the Market Diner for breakfast..then took the Circle Line up to Bear Mountain..spent the day on the beach..

Somehow, we all survive the 60's

Good morning...

Just realized, I think in all the years that you've been doing the AI threads, where we've had at least 5-6 contestants left...you've never been so charitable in your evaluations...ALL thumbs up tonight, except for one MEH, for Jessica...

Are you getting soft?..or did you get the memo from the AI producers, after Cowell left..to "be more nice?" (g)

Have a Blessed Easter.

The greatest or strangest picture ever?? Team Nerdist versus Team Mad Men in bowling. I really never thought I would see Weird Al Yankovic and Jon Hamm in the same place ever ever.

Hi, Twin!

You were missed last night. But I figured you might be busy because of Easter. Good excuse :)

Have a blessed Holy Week and a Happy Easter!

I agree with what you said about Elise. The judges dumped all over her performance, but she sounded okay to me.

Unless it is yet again another plea for attention...WHY is it necessary to state on National TV that someone isnt feeling well? Does stating it make the inevitible fainting in front of the camera MORE entertaining? Enquiring minds want to know...Joshua does strike me as one that can be a hair trigger away from the hysterical swooning and fainting while yelping “Lawdy Geezuz!”——you know.....an Obama voter :-)

Well, if its a choice between a Jho video and a begathon I guess I’d go for the Jho video. Its only a couple of minutes vs an hour or more.

After enduring a strange J-Lo video, we return to the results.

Seacrest calls Joshua (who we're reminded several times isn't feeling well tonight) and Jessica.

Joshua is safe.

And so is Jessica.

So would I. She gets a lot of criticism when many of her songs are primarily her vocal versus others who are propped up with background
Singers etc.

OMG!! The Wanted is coming up. They play one of their songs at the gym with ridiculous frequency. It’s like The Situation, Vinnie, Ronnie and Pauly from Jersey Shore made a music video.

It’s so douchy they really should have just called themselves Summer’s Eve.
