Ryan opens the show with a warning Knowing what happened to Michael Johns last week no one is safe anymore Thanks a--hole we remember that you tortured Michael by telling him no one was kicked off last year during Idol Gives Back and then you kicked him off OK I know it wasnt you Ryan but still did you have to do it in such a douche-y wayThe Idols sing Mariah Careys hit One Sweet Day starting off with Jason Castro He gets a nice solo but I feel like hes phoning it in Kristy Lee is totally singing through her nose but man is she workin her outfit She will totally pull a Pickler and take the country world by storm The rest of the Idols do a nice job but I kind of think picking a song about shining down on me from heaven must be so hard for David Cook to sing considering his brother is so sick But hes pro and sings with all his heart Side note Is Syeshas hair getting taller with every show Is David As getting spikierWere shown high read more

The Top 8: Who's Your Idol Now?

American Idol by Frank Micelotta/Fox

The following contains spoiler information about Wednesday night's American Idol results show.No huge surprises this week. There may have been one or two others who could have been sent home, but there certainly is no arguing with America's latest decision. The Davids were of course safe, Carly's still more than solid, and you have to figure Jason can work the pretty eyes and charm for another round or two. So, after all was said and done tonight, as it boiled down to Kristy Lee, Brooke and Ramiele, it was the littlest lass who got sung off.All of which is my long-winded way of saying: Who's your pick to win Idol now? Paula's got the Davids, Michael and Carly in her "final four." But is there a dark horse who could still ride up and steal a win? Vote here, and have your say in the next Power Rankings.PS. Got questions for when Ramiele drops by TVGuide.com for her video Q&A? Share them in comments! read more
