Scotty and Lauren begin with a duet, I Told You So. It is followed by their results. Hardly a surprise that both are safe.

A replay of Casey’s dramatic save opened the show. Elton John songs will be featured this week, when two Idols will be going home.

An Entertainment Weekly makeover is featured with clips of each Idol’s transformation shown throughout the show. I gather that Ryan got dragged along, as he showed up with a new hair style. It aged him by ten years with a bad coverup of a receding hairline. Hope this one grows out fast.

Scotty leads with Country Comfort. He does it proud and makes his Grandma proud as he acknowledges her during his performance. When he finished with two notes that went from an incredible high to his incredible low, the crowd went wild. I was right there with them and so were the judges.

Idol medley and Stevie Wonder provide a rousing start to the show, as Signed, Sealed & Delivered is followed by Stevie singing Happy Birthday to Steven Tyler.

Following the Ford video, Ryan calls Scotty, Pia and Lauren to center stage and quickly announces that they’ll all be packing their bags – in a few months for the summer tour, that is. They looked relieved, but it was hardly a surprise.

Sugerland performs Stuck Like Glue, a toe tapping number that breaks the tension for a couple minutes. Calico is not fond of this one, Grandma didn’t mind as much although it got a bit repetitious.
