katie stevens andrew garcia 'American Idol' Elimination Hangover chat: Katie Stevens, Andrew Garcia heading homeAfter the dramatic save of Michael Lynche last week, the Top 9 became a Top 7 as two “American Idol” contestants were sent packing — Katie Stevens and Andrew Garcia.

How do you feel about the double elimination? Did America get it right? Chat about it live here with Zap2it’s own Andrea Reiher and other “Idol” fanatics at 3 p.m. ET.

Next week is “Idol Gives Back” — are you excited about Alicia Keys as the mentor or Sir Elton John performing? Does the Inspirational Songs theme mean we’re going to have an hour of cheezy ballads or will some Idols be able to stay out of the schmaltz trap? Let us know your thoughts!

Also, be sure to check out our Inside the Idol Dome dispatches. What
didn’t you see on TV? Wednesday, April 14 was Ryan Seacrest’s personal stand-up night once the cameras were off. And Lady Antebellum pre-taped a
live performance
for a future show!
