American Idol 2011 Top 9 Weekend Update

What a week on American Idol! After a night of Elton John hits we witnessed Naima, not so surprising, and Thia, kinda surprising, eliminated from the competition while Paul survived the Bottom 3. So far we’ve seen 5 singers eliminated from the Top 13 with 1, Casey, pulled back from the brink. Those 4 singers sent home? All female. Could this season be destined to yet another male American Idol winner? Looks to me like we could be heading that way.

Good news for ratings. The numbers were up this week over last with a peak at 24 million viewers for the second half of the show. So anyone still nervous that this could be the last season of Idol, stop worrying! FOX will keep this show going as long as it continues to dominate every night that it’s on.

Coming up this week on American Idol 2011, the remaining nine singers will be performing tracks from the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame which covers pretty a huge range of songs including music which has influenced rock ‘n roll. So yeah, Scotty will still find something to fit in to Country and Jacob will get to overdo a hit.

Thursday night’s results show will feature both the return of season four’s Constantine Maroulis while guitar legend Jeff Beck will be on Wednesday night’s show, which drops to just 90 minutes this week, to support the Top 9’s theme.

Let’s start hearing some rock ‘n roll suggestions for our American Idol Top 9!
