So, Matt Giraud is the low man on the 36-million vote totem pole and he latches on to the first-ever A-I “Save.”
And that means that Matt and Lil Rounds are the odds-on favorites to head home next week when the field will be sliced to five and “saves” will be a thing of the past.

OK, some notes along the way to the “Save”…..

– the Top 10 start their 50-city A-I Tour in Portland on July 5th…

– OK, who cares about Portland? Here are the dates you want to know (tickets go on sale May 9):

– July 10 – ARCO Arena in Sacramento
– July 11 – Oracle Arena in Oakland
– July 12 – HP Pavilion in San Jose

– Jennifer Hudson proved that you don’t have to win this to be a success …. in fact, far from it…

– The best part of the Ford ads are the graphics…

– Paula will orchestrate the group number next week on Disco Week.

– Also next week David Archuleta will perform…

– It’s still a battle for second-place. Adam wins, but who comes in second now is the biggest question – Allison, Kris or Danny? Anoop is a longshot…

Following is a rundown of Wednesday night…

Here is how it went down:

– Allison Iraheta stands up-she is SAFE.
– Adam Lambert stands up-he is SAFE.
– Anoop Desai stands up-he’s in the Bottom 3.

– Kris Allen stands up … he’s SAFE.
Lil Rounds stands up – she’s in the Bottom 3.

– Matt Giraud and Danny Gokey stand up. One is in the Bottom 3. It’s Matt.

– Anoop is sent back to the couch.

So, here is the lineup…

SAFE:

Allison Iraheta
Adam Lambert
Kris Allen
Danny Gokey
Anoop Desai

Bottom 3

Lil Rounds
Matt Giraud.

Eliminated – Matt Giraud.

But…..

The judges decide to save him so he’ll be back next week for “Disco” week and two people will be eliminated.
