Tonight, we have the eight more contestants competing for the last three spots. Will it be all girls? Will they break the normal mold and maybe put more guys in than girls? Is this just a sick twisted game for the guys who will compete for nothing?  Let's find out.

 tatiana del toro                                    Last night we sat through an utter  disappointing night of bad performances. Tonight, somehow, America narrowed it down to the best three. The question that remains is who are the three that get to go on, and who was to wait till tomorrow to find out if they get that second chance. He are just around the corner to the main stage and the top twelve.  I guess all that remains is to find out who makes it and who doesn't. However, before that, I have to make a point to say that if you look at the top six so far picked, you can already tell there will be a big distinction this year. The rules are the top boy, the top girl, and then the next top voted person makes it through every week. Right now, there are two girls and four guys. That means, by default, there should be two and two with two more spots to fill. They were both filled by guys. I have a feeling we will have a guy win this year.

Last night we had 12 of the 36 sing. Tonight, only three of them are gonna make it through this round. I feel very strongly about my predictions last night. If any of them don't get through, I will be very upset. And now that we had to sit through a really bad group singalong and a recap from last night, we get to see who will make it.

Tonight, we have 12 performing. Now, Ryan explained the new rules to us, and boy was it confusing the way he said it. So to break it down a bit more simply, I think, he said the top boy and top girl of the night will go through. Then the next highest rated person, guy or girl will make it through to the top 12 as well. That brings it to 9 contestants. The final 3 contestants will then be chosen in a wild-card night. I hope that helps. The next change is they have the parents or spouses in the red room to discuss further how they think they did. Not the best idea, but I guess it works. So how did they do? Let's watch together.
