Our long national nightmare is over

Yep, it's 9:55 when Ryan finally hauls the bottom two back to the stage.

And though there's a bad moment when Ryan tries to fake out Syesha, it's Jason who's outta here.

At last. 

He may be an airhead, but even Jason saw this coming.

"I think my inexperience is coming in," he'd told Ryan a few moments earlier, confiding that this week he tried to help himself by picking two songs he knew, "and even  then I screwed it up."

Later, he said: "There are three songs next week. I don't know what I would've done."

He's going to be such fun on the "Idol" tour.
