American Idol 2011 Top 4 Results Show Recap

american idol top 4 recapFOX managed to stretch out last night’s American Idol results show to a full hour once again.

Only four contestants remained on American Idol 2011 last night (May 12, 2011) so you would think that the results show would only be 30 minutes; wrong. FOX managed to fill their 1-hour time frame with performances by Lady Gaga, Jordin Sparks, Enrique Iglesias and a brand new music video by Steven Tyler. At the end of all of that nonsense, we found out who was voted off American Idol Season 10.

Ryan Seacrest first shocked us at home by saying that Haley Reinhart and Lauren Alaina were safe and made it in to the American Idol Top 3. This left country boy Scotty McCreery and rocker James Durbin up on the Idol stage, fearing the inevitable. Ultimately, in perhaps the biggest shocker since Pia Toscano was eliminated, James Durbin was voted off of American Idol.

What went wrong for James? Taking a look at the elimination poll I posted yesterday, 46% said that Haley Reinhart should be voted off, Lauren Alaina 33%, Scotty McCreery 11% and James Durbin 10%. Did America finally realize that James was just another Adam Lambert sounding rocker? I honestly don’t know what happened because as much as I disliked James’ screaming, I was sure he was going to win.

There’s no point in getting all upset because what’s done is done. James Durbin has been eliminated from American Idol and next week the final three will head home to perform. Who has what it takes to win? Tune in next Wednesday night at 8|7c on FOX and as always, comment below with your thoughts!
