American Idol S6 Elimination Round 5
They showed an ‘audition tape’ featuring Tony Bennett. Very clever.
Jennifer Lopez performed the hit “Que Hicistes” from her first Spanish album, “Como Ama Una Mujer” (How a Woman Loves). She still sounds great. Her hair, make-up and body never looked better. Muy caliente!
The bottom three contestants were Phil, Haley and Chris. Chris was the first sent back to safety – and rightfully so. There were over 35 million votes cast – the most this season to date. As predicted here last night, Haley received the lowest number of votes. We have reached the lucky seven.
Next week we go country with Martina McBride. Stay tuned performances Tuesday and results Wednesday on Fox.
