No Drama In Top 4 Elimination - Bye Bye Big Mike
Left with the task of trying to keep the audience invested in the program when it was obvious what was going to happen were Daughtry, who debuted their new single September (iTunes | Amazon) and Bon Jovi doing their new song "Superman Tonight" (iTunes | Amazon) with some horrid harmonizing in the first chorus. Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora look amazing for their age, but the vocals haven't aged as well. Fantasia also performed at the top of the show, singing her new song "Bittersweet" (iTunes | Amazon).
And you know what else is bittersweet? Not getting a Simon Cowell WTF reaction to Fantasia's performance. But especially bittersweet was seeing the montage of Idol homecomings with Claudette Yamin, Elliott's mother who passed away last year. R.I.P., Claudette.
