There was a massive surprise at the end of American Idol on Monday night.

The singers competed in the Judges Song Contest, and were given three song choices – one from each judge.

They didn’t know which judge chose which song, and after they learned the song and performed it, the fans voted on which nine of the final 11 would stay.

However, the surprise was at the end of the night.

The judge with the most songs chosen by the competitors got to save one of the two that didn’t make the fan voting cut.

That came down to two people — Lady K or Tristin Gressett.

Comments - Have Your Say

  1. Tristen was the best performer of this year’s AI class. He oozes soul and sings with passion! Will miss him on the show, will follow his journey.

  2. Tristan is a great talent. He just needs experience in dialing it back which will come. The comparison to Adam is stretching it a bit. Adam did already have the ability to know when and how to keep his performances at the correct level. The judges were correct in attempting to calm Tristan down.
    I believe this exposure will draw the right people towards Tristan to make him a star.

    • B*tch You put it beautifully, my thoughts exactly. Who was afraid of a Rocker? Though there are some very talented artists left they all seem the same to me. I was convinced Tristen would be a no brainer. I hate to say I’m not really as interested in the show for this season and this reason.
