(Side Note: Since Randy yelled at the America viewers last week, I think is going to backfire in Randy's face this week. What Randy did on stage last week was unacceptable, it not help Jessica Sanchez cause of the win the American Idol title. It just hurt her chance of win the competition. He don't need to ram Jessica Sanchez our throats and plus he threw Joshua, Sklyar, Hollie, Elise, Colton, and Philip under bus. Randy showed that they are not good in this competition.)
