Oh, sorry, did someone get kicked off of American Idol? We were so distracted by Casey JamesAniston-esque hair that we failed to notice anything else during the episode. Except for when we noticed Justin Gaston’s “Antonio Banderas-circa-El Mariachi” hair. And then there was Tim Urban’s Bieber-iffic ‘do. It was quite the hair show, for real. Coiffes aside, there were two contestants booted off last night, and the results weren’t surprising.

Andrew Garcia will never have to be compared to his Paula Abdul-covering former self ever again, as he lost his valiant fight for Idolatry last night, as did seventeen-year-old Katie Stevens. Despite considering Garcia a front-runner early on, both contestants were meh of late and their departures were imminent. As much as we’re considering this season boring, performance-wise, we’ll miss the contestants when they get cut, they all seem like they’d be fun to hang out with, so it’s still sad. As of now, here’s how our stats stack up:

7. Michael Lynche (+2)
6. Tim Urban (+2)
5. Siobhan Magnus (-1)
4. Aaron Kelly (+2)
3. Casey James (-2)
2. Lee DeWyze (+3)
1. Crystal Bowersox (+1)

Next week, Idol Gives Back will bring us songs of inspiration (swear to God, if we hear “Don’t Stop Believin’” after all the “Don’t Stop Believin’” that those Glee commercials put us through, we might murder a puppy), plus Alicia Keys, Black-Eyed Peas, a couple of Obamas and a lot of charity guilt tripping. Can’t wait!
