Description

JESSICA MEUSE (AGE 23) - TOP 13 - SLAPOUT, AL Song #1: "Counting Stars" by OneRepublic Song #2: "Radioactive" by Imagine Dragons The show kicks off with a group medley of OneRepublic's "Counting Stars" and Imagine Dragons "Radioactive," and the standouts are Jessica Meuse, Emily Piriz and (surprisingly) Malaya Watson. Also noteworthy is Alex Preston's bizarre suit/shoe combo. An astounding 71 million votes were cast, which under the new rules represents approximately 37 people. The last-night recap doesn't so much cover the performances as what happened after the show. The girls all pester Sam Woolf about being a ladies man, especially over a girl who cried just because he touched her. They all vote for themselves on the ride home (with Caleb accidentally voting for Sanjaya, Ben Briley quips), then they eat dinner and talk about the judges. They end with a cheers about being Friends Forever, and I assume they are referencing the Zack Attack hit single from the early 90s. The save doesn't expire until the top six, which means we're not using it tonight. Original Airdate: Thursday February 27, 2014 (ICE-TV) FINALS In this season, there are 13 weeks of the finals and 13 finalists, with one finalist eliminated per week based on the American public's votes.
