American Idol Results Stunner: Who Went Home?

by at . Comments

The first two elimination rounds of American Idol featured the surprising save of Casey Abrams, followed by a double ouster of Naima Adedapo and Thia Megia.

Was the third contestant voted off tonight someone we expected, or did the voters have another surprise up their sleeves after Wednesday's performances?

Most pundits felt the Bottom Three would be made of Jacob Lusk, Paul McDonald and Stefano Langone. Two out of the three did in fact land there. But ...

The third member of the trio in danger was someone no one saw coming, and not only did that person land in the bottom three, they're the one going home!

Follow the jump to see which finalist left American Idol tonight ...

Pia Toscano was shockingly sent packing by voters this week!

American Idol viewers eliminated their fifth consecutive female singer tonight, leaving Jacob, Stefano, the judges and plenty of fans beyond shocked.

Many considered Pia to not just be safe tonight, but to have given Wednesday's best performance and to be almost a lock for the Season 10 finals.

"What a shock, what a surprise," Ryan Seacrest said amid boos.

Jennifer Lopez could not even hold back the tears. "I have no idea what just happened here. I'm shocked. I'm angry. I don't even know what to say."

"A mistake is one thing, but a lack of passion is unforgivable," Steven Tyler added, upset and nearly at a loss for words himself. "They're wrong."

"We're all in shock," said Randy Jackson. "I'm gutted."

Think they're regretting that save of Casey Abrams?!

After her swan song (The Pretenders' "I'll Stand By You"), Pia Toscano broke down and was given a standing ovation from all, with many in tears.

What do you think? Did America really blow it this week, or was Pia actually deserving of the heave-ho? Sound off in the comments ...

imo most of the people that didn't like pia are people who are so into the ladyy gaga and pink scene,etc ,that pia is too boring to them.while pia has total class,thses idiots that would put pop artists that dress like multi colored birds with their boobs hanging halfway out their dresses above pia and her stage presence,are total void of knowing what talent is.

I question the integrity of the voting system from American Idol end. On May 11, I called 1866idols05 for James Durbin. I heard the recording say, "Thank for for voting for contestant No. 1." I was puzzled, since I thought James was No. 5. I called again to vote for Lauren, 1800idols04 or 03; I don't remember now. And the recording said "Thank you for voting for contestnant No. 3 (or 4)." I did the same thing for Scotty, and the recording confirmed Scotty's number. I called for James again, thinking that maybe I misdialed. Again it said No. 1. I tried it again; it again said No. 1. The next day, Thursday, James was eliminated. I began to have a bad feeling in my stomach. I called the American Idol comment phone line and left a message regarding my voting experience and requested a callback with an explanation. I did not get a return call. I called again the next day. I still did not receive a callb back -- up to now. Did I do anyting wrong? Can somebody explain it. Thanks.

No more American Idol for me. American screwed up badly. James was the best and talented. American slided down the hill by not knowing who is the best, just not in musics but in all other areas. It was very sad.

Have no reason to watch American Idol anymore this season and might not watch it anymore! James was by far the most talented.Such a great performer.

American Idol Quotes

Brooke White's tears come from the authentic, good soul that she is. Her heart was breaking because she was overwhelmed with the experience she had with the show and the gift that it brought.

Paula Abdul [after Brooke White was eliminated on season seven]

I read some of this online this morning and just for the record, the rumors — they’re not true. She’s part of our family and we love her.
