American Idol Eliminated Jeremiah Lloyd Harmon Tonight, May 5, 2019
Hey, “American Idol” fans. Tonight, May 5, 2019, the final 6 American Idol contestants performed LIVE once again. However, this time, they performed not one, but two songs. Their first set of songs were inspired by the Woodstock music festival. The second set of songs were titled “Inspirational Showstoppers.”
American Idol alum and CCM star Lauren Daigle arrived to mentor the singers through the Showstopper performances. All the judges: Lionel Richie, Katy Perry and Luke Bryan were on hand, and they still had a “save” in play to rescue one lucky contestant from elimination.
Tonight’s LIVE show started off with the Woodstock performances. Madison Vandenberg hit the stage first to sing, “Piece of My Heart” by Janis Joplin/Erma Franklin. Afterwards, Katy told Madison, “Oh my gush! You flung your pony! I don’t want you to be second. I want you to win this thing. I think the second half was better than the first half.” Luke said, “You’re doing what we ask every week, digging in more and more.” Lionel said, “You brought us attitude tonight.”
Next up, was Laine Hardy. He sang, “I Don’t Need No Doctor” by Joe Cocker/Ray Charles. Afterwards, Luke told him, “Your voice has that certain sweet spot.” Lionel said, “I dig your colorful jacket.” Katy said, “You are taking it to the core of who you are. I think you’ve figured this chess game out. Push yourself hard.”
Next, Jeremiah Lloyd Harmon hit the stage to sing, “Swing Low, Sweet Chariot” by Joan Baez. The judges got on their feet for his performance. Afterwards, Lionel told Jeremiah, “You’re bringing the bling and the swing. Your vocals are absolutely amazing.” Katy said, “HALLELUJAH. The church is in ya! Thanks for showing off.” Luke said, “comfortable from day one.”
After that, Laci Kaye Booth hit the stage to sing, “To Love Somebody” by Janis Joplin/Bee Gees. Afterwards, Katy said, ” Your voice is spectacular. I compare it to Bonnie Raitt. I want you to move more though.” Luke said, “You dug in and stood out. You commanded our attention. This was cool to watch.” Lionel complimented her big hair and fringe outfit. He also told her, “I want you to play the crowd more.”
Alejandro Aranda hopped on stage next. He ended up singing, “White Rabbit” by Jefferson Airplane. Afterwards, Luke told Alejandro, “I felt your performance embodied the spirit of Woodstock. I call it “Pink Floyd like.” Lionel said, “The jacket is on fire.” Lionel also gave him some mic tips saying, “Make love to it.” Katy said, “That was a fantastic performance. Keep feeling yourself. Your heroes would be proud.”
Next, Wade Cota hit the stag to sing,”With a Little Help from My Friends” by Joe Cocker/The Beatles. Afterwards, Lionel told Wade, “You have more movement than Joe Cocker. It’s the perfect song for you. You knocked it out of the park.” Katy said, “That was the best performance I’ve seen tonight.” Luke said, “You just elevated the game. You spiritually moved the whole room.”
Shortly after that, one of last season’s contestants Gabby Barrett hit the stage to perform her new song titled, “I Hope.”
After that, Madison VanDenberg hit the stage again to sing her second song of the night. It was, “I Surrender” by Celine Dion. Afterwards, Katy told Madison, “I could really hear and see you feeling it. There you are.” Luke told her, “You finally gave us a cry in there. You’ve been 99.9 percent there.” Lionel said, “Your vocals are far beyond your age. You’re owning it so much now. You did that song in a Madison style.”
Next, Alejandro Aranda arrived on stage to sing an original song called, “Poison.” Afterwards, Luke said, “It’s tough to sing and play guitar like that at the same time.” Lionel said, “Watching you sing your songs is everything. Your star has already gone to the top.” Katy said, “That was the best you have ever sang on the show. I think it will be interesting how American Idol will change when you win.”
After all that, Laci Kaye Booth hit the stage for her second performance. She sang, “Open Arms” by Journey. Afterwards, Lionel told her, ” Your delivery was fantastic. You’re in your comfort zone now.” Katy said, “That was exactly what I was asking for. You are multidimensional.” Luke said, “I’m so proud of how far you’ve come.”
Next, Jeremiah Lloyd Harmon hopped on stage to sing, “Somewhere” by Barbra Streisand for his second performance of the night. Afterwards, Katy told Jeremiah, “I was locked in every single word. Every single syllable.” Luke said, “You started a little unsure, but you rallied at the end.” Lionel told him, “You cannot study mesmerizing. You killed it tonight.”
After that, Wade Cota performed, “Through the Valley” by Shawn James for his second set of the night. Afterwards, Luke told Wade, “That was a Johnny Cash moment.” Lionel said, “You have sold it to us.” Katy said, “That voice is 1000 years old. I think you’re finally believing in yourself.”
Then the last performance of the night fell upon Laine Hardy. He sang, “Johnny B. Goode” by Chuck Berry. Afterwards, Lionel told Laine, “That was the perfect song. The perfect attitude.” Katy said, “I’m scared. It was so good! Who knew you had that in your lower body!” Luke said, “Laine has left the building! I have nothing left to say.”
After that, host Ryan Seacrest got right down to business and revealed that everyone was safe and through to the next round except for Laci Kaye Booth and Jeremiah Lloyd Harmon. They were the two with the least amount of votes from the viewing audience. However, the judges did opt to use their “save” tonight, and they used it on Laci! So, Laci got very lucky. She’s still in this thing! But for poor Jeremiah, it was indeed the end of the road.
