Pretty much the same old, same old results show.
Opened with a group number reportedly shot the night before and it took three tries to get it right.
Last season’s winner Candice Glover then performed and the songs, as expected, were yawners.
Ryan says 71 million votes came in. So, ratings down, votes are up.
More typical results show fodder showing the contestants in their limo and then post-show meeting around the table.
Malaya Watson goes to a bottom-three chair. Alex Preston, Ben Briley and Jena Irene are all safe.
It’s announced that the save is back and can be used up to the Top 6. Will they use it tonight? Not a chance.
Next MK Nobilette takes a bottom-three seat and Dexter Roberts, Majesty Rose and Sam Woolf are all safe.
Jake Bugg takes the stage after some serious pimping from Keith Urban. He is kind of folkish and not all that bad, but where did he come from, and why?
CK Harris, Kristen O’Connor, Caleb Johnson and Jessica Meuse are called up. As expected, finally, someone who was supposed to be there is: Kristen takes the final hot seat.
Harry is surprised by the bottom-three.
Dim the lights once again, MK is safe and then so is Malaya. Kristen sings Adele’s “Turning Tables” for her life and gets no save for the effort.
