Fifty-two million votes were cast for the "American Idol" finalists, Ryan Seacrest tells us and then out comes four of the contestants to sing "Hey, Soul Sister."
It's fun and fluffy . . . Jacob Lusk and Stefano Langone playing with Lauren Alaina and Haley Reinhart. Just ear candy, but sweet. It's really a good group this year. Wish there were more of an edge after the bridge.
After the break Casey Abrams, Scotty McCreedy and James Durbin sing "Viva La Vida." It's more powerful than the first medley,it but doesn't really mesh. There's no real synergy.
Then they have Casey and Jacob stand up. Oh-oh, someone's bottom three. I think it'll be Casey. But he's safe; Jacob's in the bottom three.
