American Idol: Recap of Top 9 results show

My predictions were way off this week, except for the fact that Aaron Kelly was in the bottom three, as I thought he would be. Other than that, I missed everything! I guess my ego got too big for my own good after I nailed last week's results 100%! Ha! Oh universe... you silly goose!

The bottom three last night was composed of Aaron and two other contestants who also saw themselves in the bottom three for the first time. Perennial bottom three favourites Katie Stevens and Tim Urban were spared this week after great performances and good reviews from the judges. One member of the bottom three was a surprise but not a shock... the other was a complete shock. In fact, the "complete shock" needed to sing for the judges' save because they, in fact, received the fewest votes!

After the contestant sang for the judges' save, Simon Cowell announced that -- for the first and only time this season -- the judges' save would indeed be invoked! So that's it for this year! If another "shock" elimination occurs, that contestant is out no matter what.

Because the judges' save was used this week, the Top 9 perform AGAIN next week under the mentorship of Adam Lambert, last season's runner-up. As well, because the judges' save was used, two contestants will be eliminated next week instead of just one.

Tune in to the Top 9 (Part 2) next Tuesday at 9 p.m. Atlantic (8 p.m. Eastern) on Fox!
