Last night’s American Idol show had the song theme centered on an iconic musical genius, Sir Elton John. The American Idol contestants shared their individual photo shoot stories and song selection decisions.

Fifty-five million people voted last night for tonight’s American Idol result show. The contestants are receiving plenty of fan mail.
Tonight’s American Idol result show started with a duet by Lauren and Scotty singing, a country song, “I Told You So.” The previous night, Lauren Alaina sang a sweet country ballad version of, “Candle In The Wind, and the judges thought she was amazing.

Lauren Alaina and Scotty McCreery were told they were the first ones safe tonight by the host, Ryan Seacrest.
Naima and Jacob sang a duet, “Solid,” by Ashford and Simpson. Last night, Naima Adedapo followed her reggae heart and sang, “I’m Still Standing.” Two judges weren’t sure the reggae beat fit the song but Steven admired her decision. Jacob Lusk sang a softer version of, “Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Words.” He held it back and the judges approved. Jacob Lusk was told he’s safe for another week but Naima Adedapo was told she’s the first of the bottom three American Idol contestants.

The judges said good job, but safe. Pia Toscano, a steady ballad singer over the previous weeks, sang, “Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me.” The judges loved her but said they’d like to see her sing a more up tempo song. Pia Toscano and Hailey Reinhart join the safe contestants to go another week. Thia Megia is the second named as one of the bottom three.
Paul, Casey, Stefano and James formed a band and sang, “Band On The Run.” Last night, Paul McDonald sang, “Rocket Man,” and judges wanted him to push his voice a little more.
