On a pleasant Wednesday evening, viewers sat down to American Idol as the ground round part deux (or 2, for those who failed all French classes) began.

People who were booted included Emily Anne Reed, Tiffany Rios (with good reason, this isn’t the Jersey Shore), Jessica Yantz (of the blonde Snooki poof), and Rob Brolin.

Who do you wish had been booted? Perhaps Ashley Sullivan who quit for half the night, cries at the drop of a JLO eyelash and is super dramatic?
