Update: Annie’s recap is live.
SPOILER AHEAD if you’re on the west coast!

Lo paramour Johnny Keyser — would get the “incredible second chance” of a lifetime and be brought back to the American Idol stage.
The lucky guy was….
Jermaine Jones!After telling his young admirer Ryan Seacrest that his mom almost hadn’t answered the producers’ call to bring him back because she didn’t recognize the phone number, the big purple people eater sang the emotional Luther Vandross ballad “Dance With My Father.”

I’m not LOVING it.
