With a couple of notable exceptions, Tuesday's American Idol performances left plenty to be desired, and plenty of people wondering who'd end up in the bottom three.
Last week, Paige Miles was narrowly spared from elimination. Wednesday, though, the 24-year-old Floridian's run on American Idol came to an appropriate conclusion.
Paige's promising voice and great personality weren't enough to overcome her erratic song selection and a quite lackluster rendition of Phil Collins' "Against All Odds."
To the surprise of no one, Tim Urban joined Paige in the bottom three again, along with Katie Stevens, whose "Big Girls Don't Cry" nearly resulted in tears of her own.
Next week, it's R&B/Soul time, with Usher serving as mentor and guest performer. Miley Cyrus rocked the house last night, and we'll have video of that for you soon.
PAIGE TURNED: A good run, Paige, but Miles apart from the top tier.
Which of the remaining 10 do you see going all the way to the end, and who do you think is a prime candidate to be sent packing next week?
Here's how we see the remaining finalists, grouped into tiers ...
- Crystal Bowersox
- Siobhan Magnus
- Michael Lynche
- Casey James
- Didi Benami
- Lee DeWyze
- Andrew Garcia
Bottom Three Calling
