American Idol said goodbye to Jacob Lusk. Lady Antebellum performed its new single, and JLo also sang on American Idol Thursday night.
Thank goodness for Lady Antebellum.
That was quickly followed by the weekly Ford video starring American Idol contestants. Then, we moved into a new degree of Fox cross-promotional audacity.
It's not enough to have the stars of various Fox TV shows sitting in the front row, now Fox is integrating its other shows into its biggest TV ratings star, Idol.
We were "treated" to two cooking segments with "Hell's Kitchen" chef Gordon Ramsay. Each Idol contestant had to make an omelette in 10 minutes and be judged. Lauren Alaina won that round. Later, she and Jacob squared off in a blindfolded contest of Name This Food. Lauren won again.
