The bottom three tonite were Carly Smithson, Kristy Lee Cook, and Amanda Overmyer. It was very surprising to see Carly in the bottom three, and completely disgusting that Amanda Overmyer was the one eliminated.. it should have been Kristy Lee Cook! Every performance of hers has absolutely sucked, and for the life of me, I cannot understand how she has gotten this far in the competition. Amanda would have added something unique and fun to the tour, and instead we get Kristy Lee Cook? Unbelievable. It seems we have one every year — someone who goes through based on something other than singing talent.. and I’m sorry for Amanda Overmyer, David Hernandez, Danny Noriega, Asia’h Epperson, and all the others that were voted out before Kristy Lee Cook, who hasn’t had one single good performance in this entire competition.
Mentors for this season were announced tonite, and they are Dolly Parton, Mariah Carey, Andrew Lloyd Webber, and Neil Diamond.
Kellie Pickler was the musical guest tonite, performing her hit “Red High Heels”.
