Jason Castro in final American Idol 11

David Hernandez was out, Jason Castro and others servive to live another day. Eleven remaining in the's only two more weeks to make it to the American Idol tour.

According to Chris Sligh (finished in 10th place in season 6 of American Idol),


Chikezie stepped out of his shell and became a front-runner in my book. He KILLED it! Let's hope America agrees. Jason Castro confirmed his status as my personal favorite. If he doesn't make the top 5, I'll be very surprised — he's artistic, smart with song choice, and a good musician (despite failing music theory!). David Cook rocked ''Eleanor Rigby.'' His voice sounded incredible. I think he really stepped out tonight. He'll be here for a while.

IN CONCLUSION This year's top 24 was NOT the best ever. This year's top 12, I think, barely beats out last year's top 12 as the best. They're all decent to great. There is not a person who is an obvious worst, like there has been in past years. Not that it matters, but I concede that these guys are a great group.

More than 29 million viewers cast votes for their favorites this week as the series entered the home stretch of its seventh season, moving from three nights a week to two.The weekly show draws nearly 30 million viewers, making it the most-watched program on U.S. television.

After a recap of the events yesterday, we get our first set of results. Ryan has Carly Smithson, Michael Johns, Jason Castro and Syesha Mercado stand up. Carly, Michael and Jason are all safe.

That is the great news, Jason Castro was safe. It was not his best performance, but it was an average one, but still it was quite ok. He in now in the last 11. One to go and they will have the grand American Idol tour.
