Idol Chatter - Top 8 guys' performance show aired March 10, 2010

Last night, the eight remaining male contestants sang for a spot in this year's coveted Top 12. Unlike the girls, which saw at least three horrible performances, the guys did really well last night. Even Todrick Hall and Tim Urban did quite well, but I'm not sure it was enough to save them.

I think the following contestants are definitely safe (in no particular order)

- Casey James
- Michael Lynche
- Andrew Garcia (but his star is falling on the show)
- Aaron Kelly
- Lee DeWyze

Could be in danger, but I really doubt it:

- Alex Lambert

That's how I end up with Todrick and Tim as the ones being eliminated tonight. It's not because I think they deserve it after this last night's performances (if that's all you take into consideration), but because I can't see any of the others being eliminated, except perhaps for Alex, but he has a growing fan base and has become a darling of the judges.

Has Andrew's star fallen far enough to get booted? I doubt it. Is Aaron too young? He has a big tween fan base. Casey? The cougars are voting en masse for him. Michael? After last night, he's definitely safe. Lee? One of the favourites and getting the rocker vote. Definitely safe.

So - it's bye-bye to Todrick and Tim!

Tune in tonight at 9 p.m. Atlantic (8 p.m. Eastern) on Fox to see how it all plays out! Next week, we're back to only two shows per week -- one performance show and one results show, as the Top 12 finally start competing in ernest for the title of American Idol 2010!
