"American Idol" in 60 Seconds has fast become an MTV News institution, but it goes by so fast that it's not always easy to catch every golden nugget. So, here we present to you a slightly altered text version of Jim Cantiello's bite-size recap of the week's "Idol" hijinks, plus a joke or two that had to be cut for time!
(For more thorough takes on this week's "Idol," read Jim's live blog and Gil Kaufman's recaps of [article id="1610708"]Tuesday's performances[/article] and [article id="1610807"]Wednesday's results[/article].)
On Tuesday night, Danny Gokey squealed like a pig and the set exploded (not necessarily in that order). In case you haven't figured it out yet, it was Rock Week on "Idol"!
Kara may have shouted, "Yes! Yes! Yes!" But her leather jacket was all, "No! No! No!"
Kris was forgettable, Danny regrettable. If only their duet were resettable. (And if only Gokey knew when to stop talking during his interviews.)
Amazing? Allison rocking Janis and then sassing Simon. Even more amazing? Adam pulling off Led Zeppelin and singing about doing it with a woman! Most amazing? Adam and Allison joining forces! Can they get their own spin-off show, please? (And not one about them having a "perfect marriage," Paula.)
On Wednesday night's results show, Daughtry debuted the new Nickelback song, Allison cursed, Gokey laughed, Ford commercial FAIL, and then a 60-year-old woman jumped around stage even though she should just accept that her career is over. And I'm not talking about [article id="1610625"]Paula[/article].
"Kris, you are safe."
Yay! And uh-oh.
"Adam, you are safe!"
"Danny, you are safe! Allison leaves us tonight."
Excuse me while I go scream on like Gokey.
