American Idol, The Day After: Motown Week Results Dish

Last night's history-making "American Idol" results show had everything an "Idol" fan (or a fan of AWESOME TELEVISON in general) could hope for: A Jennifer Hudson/George Huff reunion! Hulk Hogan! Stevie Wonder! A Steven Tyler birthday party...with a leopard-print cake! But more importantly, the show also featured: A shocking elimination! An even more shocking use of the controversial Judges' Save! An onstage meltdown! The risk of projectile hurling! F-bombs!

Yes, this was some exciting TV, people. And the day after, my Yahoo! Entertainment colleague Matt Whitfield (who brought his championship wrestling belt to the office just for this occasion) and I are still all riled up. We didn't even need any caffeine this morning to get all giddy and chatty about Thursday's results show, there was so much awesomeness to discuss...

[Editor's note: Our especially giddy tangent about next week's "American Idol" theme, '80s Night, was shot before the show announced the crushing news that next week's theme has been changed to...Elton John Night. Argh. I just dearly hope Matt's not reading this, because I really don't have the heart to tell him he's not going to hear any Skid Row or Motley Crue covers next Wednesday...]
