Who will it be?

Who's going home tonight on Idol? We'll find out after an hours' worth of inane filler and fluff. I'm predicting (and hoping) Jacob, but we'll see. Bruno Mars and Crystal Bowersox, from last season, will be performing tonight. Okay, those two things won't be inane--everything else will.

See what I mean? The kids went to a British consulate to celebrate the Royal Wedding. I'll be so happy when that wedding is over. Fast forward.

Next comes the group sing. It's a Carole King song, and you know...she really did write a LOT of songs. The group sing is horrible though...everyone sounds off key. Maybe their ear pieces aren't working.

Ford commercial (yawn), then Crystal (yay!). She's so awesome...still sounds great!

Before we hear any results, there's a Q&A with questions from "America."

Ryan tells us he's calling people up individually in random order. Haley's up first. Jimmy Iovine comments on last night's performance. He said he agreed with Jennifer that Haley has the best voice up there, BUT, as an artist, she doesn't really know who she is yet, and if she goes up, it will be because the audience has gotten wind of that. And THANK YOU! Haley is SAFE!!! I was worried.

Scotty's next. Jimmy says Scotty is a phenom who comes with character, strength and confidence. Jimmy's worried that Scotty's subtlety gets lost in the AI environment. Ryan tells Scotty to hang on before announcing whether he's safe or not.

Instead he brings up Lauren. Jimmy says that Lauren only hears the negative in the critique. He thinks she'll be around for the long run. And again, Ryan tells her to hang tight.

Then he calls up Casey. Jimmy was disappointed because Casey was "on" and then he had to growl. He said Casey needs to realize that the family dog does not vote! HA! (Hey Kerri, maybe The Ricardos can vote!) But, Jimmy ultimately predicts Casey will be safe. And Casey has to sit down and wait.

For the second time tonight, Ryan hints that we may be surprised by the results and then we go to commercial.

James is next. Jimmy says when James sings heavy metal sometimes, it's not believable, but when he sings a melody with a great song with a "rock feel," he's much more believable. He adds that there's no doubt that James can win this thing. And Ryan tells us that James is safe. Of course he is!

And finally, Jacob comes up. Jimmy says that when he saw Jacob's outfit, he though Jacob went into the wrong dressing room since Dancing with the Stars is next door. He thinks Jacob could go home--he's on "banana peel status."

Jimmy then says "at this point in the competition, this is a horse race. We've got to stop comparing them to themselves and their progress every week. We have to compare them against each other. There's only one winner of American Idol."

Ryan brings Casey, Scotty and Lauren back up. Lauren is safe, so Scotty, Jacob and Casey (boo!) are in the bottom three.

But first, Bruno Mars performs "The Lazy Song." Cute little ditty. (His album, Doo-Wops & Hooligans is great, by the way.) I can relate to this song so much, especially on Sundays.
Today I don't feel like doing anything • I just wanna lay in my bed • Don't feel like pickin' up my phone • So leave a message at the tone • 'Cause today I swear I'm not doin' anything
Finally, it's results time. Ryan says the results are in random order tonight. Jacob is SAFE?!?!?! WHAT?!?!?!?! Wow. The person leaving the competition is CASEY. Fuuuuuuuuccckkkkkkkkkk. There goes my pool. Oh man. I'm so disappointed. Jacob over Casey?!?!? I just don't understand it.

Casey sings us out with I Put a Spell on You.

Ugh. I'm distraught. Casey goes and hugs all the judges while he's singing. Then Tivo cuts off, so I didn't see the end of the song.
