Double Elimination: Who Did American Idol Send Home?

by at . Comments

Farewell, Naima Adedapo and Thia Megia.

The run of both these finalists came to an end last night, as American Idol viewers voted out a pair of contestants following the surprising save of Casey Abrams a week ago. There was no such shock this time around.

Double Elimination

Joined in the bottom three by Paul McDonald, both Naima and Thia struggled to find their groove on season 10. The former may have been too eclectic for viewers, while the latter has a beautiful voice, but didn't do a lot to stand out.

Among other results show highlights:

  • Jamie Foxx and performed.
  • Lauren Alaina and Scotty McCreery sang a duet of "I Told You So."
  • Haley Reinhart, Pia Toscano and Thia worked together on Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream."
  • McDonald, Casey Abrams, Stefano Langone and James Durbin formed a quartet for "Band on the Run."

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.
