GOKEY LEFT AMERICAN IDOL

After Fantasia, Daughtry, Cook and Trias, Gokey has been my favorite for all the IDOL finalists, but he was eliminated last night.

Over 88 million votes came in and the Top 2 finalists were finally revealed.

Here’s the recap of last night’s American Idol Season 8 elimination night:

The show started with Danny Gokey, Kris Allen and Adam Lambert’s last Ford music video which was based on the song “Ain’t Nothin’ Gonna Break My Stride”.

Alicia Keys then came on the stage together with a Rwandan child named Noah who sang an English song “I’m the World’s Greatest” that he learned in one week. In this line, Alicia asked for donations to help prevent AIDS in Africa.

Ryan Seacrest called Danny Gokey on centerstage and talked about the song choices from last night. He told Danny to have a seat on the couch and he will get back to him in a few minutes. Ryan called Kris Allen afterwards and took the audience on his journey home this past week. To hold the suspense, Ryan sent back Kris to the sofa to sit with Danny.

American Idol Sixth season winner Jordin Sparks came out next and sang her hit single “Battle Field”.

After Jordin Sparks’ number, Ryan Seacrest called Adam Lambert on center stage. Just like with Danny and Kris, he showed Adam’s homecoming the past week. He also talked about Adam’s song choices and sent the rocker to the couch together with Kris and Danny.

Katy Perry came out and performed her latest song “Waking Up In Vegas”. Katy was wearing a cape with Adam’s name on it…her way of showing America how she adored Adam. This is actually the first time a guest artist has openly campaigned for a contestant on the show.

Ryan Seacrest then announced the first person competing next week in the finale…surprisingly, it was Kris Allen. The second name announced to go head to head with Kris in the finale is Simon’s favorite Adam Lambert.
