Haley Reinhart, Scotty McCreery and James Durbin are all sitting around waiting to see if they're going to join Lauren Alaina in the top three. First, Jordin Sparks, one of my all-time favorite contestants, is debuting "I Am Woman."

She flounces out in a silver raincoat, all hard and scowling, trying to be like Fergie or something. Not really her vibe in my opinion, but I guess she's going for this niche. It's just not enjoyable and a bit all over the place.

She gives Steven Tyler a careful kiss on the lips; oh well, it's show biz. Speaking of which, after a break it's time to premiere a video by him. It's bizarre, lots of freak show-like imagery. 

Oh wow, Haley Reinhart's in, too! Wow, as Ryan noted, after all the buzz about how great the guys are this year, and all the women eliminated in a row to start the finals -- its two women, one guy in the final.
