Idol Chatter review of American Idol’s April 20, 2011, episode — Top 7 performance show

Brian Cormier - Idol ChatterThe Top 7 performed songs from the 21st century last night on American Idol. While there were no disasters, I did notice that several contestants kept yanking out their earpieces during their performances. This has happened for the past few weeks. Jacob Lusk complained that he messed up the first part of his song because he heard drums in his earpiece and it threw him off.

I’m not a fan of Jacob, but he’s as honest as the day’s long, so I believe him. I hope producers fix this issue. Something is obviously not working correctly with those huge monstrosities (the earpieces). You’d think that in this day and age — and with American Idol’s budget — they could afford earpieces that are a bit more subtle, not to mention ones that work.

The big question is the ability of Stefano Langone to survive yet another week. He’s been in the bottom two the past two weeks and has knocked off both Pia Toscano and Paul McDonald. Can he do it again? If he does, who will go?
