Deandre Brackensick and Hollie Cavanaugh in 'Idol' bottom three

Skylar Laine and Colton Dixon are next up as "American Idol" cuts to its contestants down to seven. I figured they were both safe, but since Joshua Ledet and Jessica Sanchez have already gone to safety tonight, maybe Laine is in the bottom three again?

Hope not. I had them both in the top four from last night.

This makes more sense -- they had Deandre Brackensick and Hollie Cavanagh come up on stage too. I think they're both going to be in the bottom three; they were for me.

Mentor Jimmy Iovine calls out the judges for pretending Brackensick was great last night; awesome, maybe it'll keep them honest.

Brackensick is indeed in the bottom three; Dixon is safe, as is Laine. She gives  Cavanagh a hug as she walks back to safety, and then Cavanagh joins Brackensick in the bottom three stools.

Kellie Pickler back to sing "Where's Tammy Wynette" -- I liked her when she was in the finals in season five because of her funny personality, but someone with vocals as weak as she had wouldn't be anywhere near the finals this year.

Still, she helped make the show big; her season -- with winner Taylor Hicks, runner-up Katherine McPhee, should've-been-the-winner Chris Daughtry, Elliott Yamin, my fave Paris Bennett and Long Island's own Kevin Covais was when "Idol" hit its highest ratings, and in my opinion had its best mix of personalities.
