'American Idol': The judges were (finally) critical! Will it affect who goes home tonight?

Posted on

O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay! The judges on American Idol finally — finally! — had less-than-glowing things to say! Jennifer Lopez and Randy Jackson weren’t happy with Scotty McCreery’s song choice — and Steven Tyler wished he’d done more boot scooting! Haley Reinhart’s take on Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep” was met with tepid response! And Jennifer Lopez said Jacob Lusk needed to get more control of his emotions, while Randy Jackson said Jacob Lusk need to let go of all of his emotions! SO MANY EXCLAMATION POINTS! Yes, some of it didn’t exactly make sense in the way it barely adhered to basic logic and reasoning, but at least it wasn’t just an endless ocean of you’re beautifuls, you’re a great performers, and you did yous and we love thats.

But here’s the pressing question now: Will the judges’ negative critiques actually affect the voting? Will Scotty, Haley, and Jacob find themselves teetering on the silver stools of doom? And who will ultimately go home? Vote in the polls below, and then defend your choices in the comments:
