Shera Lawrence and Derik Lavers are both cut. Lavers cries more than Lawrence does.
16 year-old Allison Iraheta (and her unnatural shade of red hair) is lucky number 19. Paula Abduhl calls her a dark horse.
Danny Gokey (of “did I mention my wife died” fame) takes the 20th slot, dashing my hopes of a sing-off between Gokey and his BFF Jamar Rogers. Rogers will have to wait until after the commercial break to learn his fate.
