No big surprises

So it looks like this season of "American Idol" is not as popular as it used to be. It may be too early to say, but Ryan says 28 million people voted this week - I could be wrong, but I remember more than 30 million people voting last season.

Anyway, the show kicks off with the first group song of the season. They sing a medley of songs from the 1960s and it's OK, but the best part was watching Luke Menard redeem himself. He only sang alone for a second or two, but it was enough to see that he can sing in tune. The outfits were a bit cheesy, especially Joanne Borgella, who looked like she was wearing an outfit out of the 1920s, not the 60s. Overall, it was cute, but not terribly exciting.

So, we're starting off the guys tonight. After showing clips from last night and allowing me to fall a little deeper in love with Jason Castro, Ryan calls up Garrett Haley. He talks to him for a quick minute, but tells him that tonight he has to say goodbye to him.

So, first one to go is Garrett Haley - no big surprise there. And they make him sing again - I've always hated that. After dashing someone's hopes and dreams, you make them perform live? Seems kind of cruel.

Anyway, let's keep it moving. Next up are the girls. Ryan calls up Kristy Lee Cook first and for a second, I wonder if maybe she's the one who's going, but then I think that they can't let them go in the same way, which they don't. Kristy Lee is safe for tonight.

He says the girl leaving tonight is Amy Davis. Again, no big surprise.
