Tonight's American Idol results may not have been as shocking as the night Michael Johns was shown the door. But there's no way we imagined anyone not named Brooke White would be going home.
Instead - because viewers obviously felt sorry for White after she forgot the lyrics to "You Must Love Me" on Tuesday night - Carly Smithson was voted out.
We've been Brooke backers all season long, but she deserved to be sent home this week. Smithson put on an inspired, lively rendition of "Jesus Christ Superstar" and, let's face it, Brooke choked under the pressure. It was time for her to go.
Weigh in now: Did Smithson deserve to be eliminated?
