American Idol Results: Did Someone Get Saved?

The Great 8 has become the Heavenly 7.

Or has it?

Following an impressive performance show that saw the remaining American Idol contestants rehash original audition songs, viewers were left with a difficult decision on Thursday: 

Who deserved to get voted out?

The answer came down to Sam Woolf, Malaya Watson and C.J. Harris, as this trio earned the lowest number of votes.

Ryan Seacrest then announced that Woolf would be going home, unless his latest version of “Babylon” would be enough to earn the judges’ one save of Season 13.

And it was!

“We are unanimous. We’re going

Nigel Lythgoe Blames Lack of "Chemistry" for American Idol Judging Problems

This just in: The American Idol Season 12 judging team didn’t work out so well.

In an interview with Haute Living, producer Nigel Lythgoe owned up to this not-so-astonishing fact, blaming a lack of overall chemistry for the ratings disaster instead of singling out any individual panelist.

“Chemistry is something that everyone has to contribute to,” Lythgoe said. “Each one of them is terrific on their own – they all bring something to the table – but they just don’t gel as a whole.”

Lythgoe praised Mariah Carey’s “wealth of knowledge” and said Nicki Minaj was “very focused”

Was Diane Sawyer wasted during ABC’s election night coverage?

Oh my, Diane Sawyer was “maintaining” as Kaiser puts it, last night during her job as co-anchor for ABC’s election coverage. She was slurring her words, acting goofy, and basically embarrassing her co-anchor, George Stephanopoulos, who stared at her stony-faced as she went on babbling about the election. It was fun for me to watch on several levels. Of course because Sawyer was so visibly wasted, and also because I never watch ABC for election night, I flip between MSNBC and CNN. Plus I actually missed the point last night when they called the election for Obama! I was so tired I passed out

We’ve heard the announcement that Britney Spears will be joining the American version of “X Factor,” and there were rumors that Demi Lovato was in talks to also become a judge. Last night both stars joined Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid at the Fox Upfronts to make the official announcement. Spears and Lovato will be replacing first season judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger. TMZ has video of the upfronts, with both Britney and Demi making brief prepared remarks on stage.
