'American Idol': Heejun Han Goes Home + Power Rankings

March 30th, 2012 10:00am EDT

Yes, being my favorite has been cursed since I helped Kelly to a win in the first season, and now the end has come for my favorite this year: Heejun Han.

Elise Testone performs Whole Lotta Love
Stevie Nicks. Singer. Artist. Legend. Creepiest ‘Idol’ mentor of all time. Stevie brought it all to the director’s chairs for her first stint in the ‘Idol’ mentor role. A lot of singing. Some crying. And an inate ability to make every contestants’ performance and song choice about herself. Exactly what you want from a narcissistic mentor.

But she brought an extra weird creep factor to the recording studio as well. She had the presence of a burnt-out college professor talking about how she was “there man” and the instability of that same professor’s mother.

I really didn’t know what she’d ...
