American Idol results: Judges save Matt Giraud from elimination


Matt Giraud, the 23-year-old piano player from Michigan, was supposed to go home tonight but the judges decided to use their one-time power to save him from elimination.

Matt, who sang Bryan Adam’s “Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman” for his movie-themed performance Tuesday, received the fewest number of viewer votes.He was in the Bottom 3 along with Anoop Desai and Lil Rounds. Next week, two will be kicked off.

“It’s good news,” said Simon, hesitantly, as he informed Matt that the panel had voted to preserve the 23-year-old finalist. The audience, which had chanted “Save, save, save!” cheered wildly.

What do you think? Does he deserve the save? With the exception of Danny Gokey, I think all of them do. But if Allison Iraheta gets eliminated next week, then the use of this save will mean kind of impulsive. I think it’s Allison–who has been in the Bottom 3 twice–who deserves this privilege the most.

Next week’s theme: Disco!
