The group song was Steely Dan's "Reelin' in the Years" and the band sounded great. I haven't written about Ricky Miner and the band much but they have done an unbelievable job this season.
During the call in segment, 14 year old Sarah asked all the Wannabes what was the biggest challenge that they have had to overcome and Archuleta said, "I dunno. I haven't been thinking about it lately, sorry."
But Castro stole the show when he said, "Uh, just the brain being dead." Classic, truly classic and I give him a lot of credit for being honest.
After Maroon 5 performed, Ryan Seacrest chatted with Adam Levine and asked if he had any advice for the Wannabes to which he replied, "Get ready to work, baby. It's going to be really tough, and you're going to have to work a lot and then you're going to get jaded and you're going to say god I hate this, but you'll really love it so just remember that."
Jason Castro and Syesha Mercado made up the bottom two and after 51 million votes, Castro was finally sent packing, which he told Seacrest that he had already done.
Before his final performance Seacrest told Casto that he seemed relieved to which he replied, "There are three songs next week, I don't know what I would have done."
America has regained some credibility with this cast off and Castro showed more personality and likeability tonight than he had in the entire rest of the season.
