The tsunami was originally expected to strike the coasts of Hawaii at about 4:05PM Eastern, but estimates could put the strike time at about 5:45PM Eastern.

It was our first results show for American Idol Season 9 and I’m a little surprised with the two guys who were voted out.
What a shame for Tyler Grady who sang “American Woman”. It might not have been his best vocal performance but he deserved another chance. I loved his Jim Morrison look and think he could have done well if given the opportunity.
The same with Joe Munoz. I blame this on idol. They gave him absolutely no face time until it was announced he was in the top 24.
