The first announced to be safe on "American Idol" result night was Lee Dwyze who was later joined in respective order by Crystal Bowersox and Casey James. This left Michael Lynche and Aaron Kelly in the bottom two. The former was hailed for his rendition of Frank Sinatra's "The Way You Look Tonight", and many agreed with the judges. Aaron was sent home.

The 17-year-old was singing "Fly Me to the Moon" on the performance night. Both Randy Jackson and Ellen DeGeneres agreed that he pulled off a stellar performance but Kara DioGuardi and Simon Cowell did not. "Compared to last week, I think it wasn't as strong," Kara said.

Before the result was read, Lady GaGa and this week's mentor Harry Connick Jr. performed on the stage. The result show also announced that next week's theme would be songs from cinema and the person to guide the Top 4 would be movie star slash R 'n' B singer Jamie Foxx.

I don't buy for one minute that Mike's performance this week, compared to Casey's performance, was deserving of the bottom 2. On the other hand, it's the time of the season when personalities get the votes -- not voices -- so I understand. Aaron Kelly needs mention too. Harry Connick did wonders with him. He sang circles around Casey this week. For Mike and Aaron to fall in the bottom 2, lower than Casey, says the competition has reached that point it does every year when it's all about personality and nothing about talent. I keep saying every year it's my last year to watch, that until they install a one-vote system I'm done with the b.s. of being able to vote 100s, 1000s, even 10s of thousands of times. What does this measure? How fast your phone is? How exceptional the software on your computer is? It may speak to technology, but then I thought this competition was supposed to be a singing competition. American Idol need to get over its need to claim that 32m+ people vote every week, when in fact it's more like 320,000 people -- willing to call in 100 times each. I'm especially disappointed that Randy, Ellen, Kara and Simon would be willing to lend their otherwise good names and honest judgments to a total sham in which their positions and responsibilities are absolutely meaningless.
