Last night was an emotional one on American Idol!
The judges finally used their “save” that was put into place as a twist for this season. Simon and the rest of the judges decided Matt Giraud was worthy of being saved after it was revealed he was the contestant with the least amount of votes last night.
While Matt sang his “swan song” Have You Ever Really Loved A Woman, the judges deliberated, and it was pretty clear they would use the save on him. Upon finding out he wasn’t leaving quite yet, Matt was overwhelmed and tearful on stage, hugging and high-fiving the other hopefuls on stage.
But in true Simon fashion, he was quick to bring everyone back to reality, reminding them that not one, but two people would be sent home the following week, and to also remember that the theme next week was disco.
We still envision the same people in the bottom three next week” Lil Rounds, Anoop, and Matt G. So this week’s save may have just been prolonging the inevitable. But who knows? It’s anyone’s game!
