‘American Idol’ 2011: Double elimination

More than 55 million votes were logged for the Idolettes this week on "American Idol." Which is 25 million more than last week and a record at this stage of the competition, show host Ryan Seacrest reveals at the top of Thursday's results show.

In what may be another, welcome, "Idol" first, the Group Lip Synch is out -- the 11 Idolettes will be divvied up tonight to perform and then learn their fate.

Lauren Alaina and Scotty McCreery sing "I Told You So." "Idol" winner Carrie Underwood and Randy Travis sang this song on the show in 2009. Draw your own conclusions.

Anyway, they're both safe.

Jacob Lusk and Naima Adedapo are brought to center stage to sing Ashford and Simpsons' "Solid." Naima is outsinging Jacob by several laps tonight. Naturally, Jacob is safe – Naima is not, and she moves to a Perch of Purgatory.

Third season "Idol" winner Fantasia Barrino sings her new song about "Collard greens and cornbread…you're my sweet potato pie…I can't get enough of you."

She's singing about her boyfriend, not lunch, right?
