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 will.i.am 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."

America is obviously not qualified to sit in judgement on true talent. Pia is the best and purest singer on the show and she was voted off by America. America should have a vote weighted at one quarter of the total vote and the rest should be left to the judges. Why have professional in the field who are judges if they can't really judge. Letting Pia go was a terrible and unforgiven mistake!

AMERICAN IDOL IS A SET UP..... THEY SET THESE YOUNG PEOPLE UP TO BE CRITITICED BY OTHER YOUNGSTERS. THEY KNOW THE VOTERS ARE PRIMARILY YOUNG WHITE GIRLS, who got nothing more to do than sit on the cell phone gossipin and cause they are white they will always vote for a blonde barbie or a underdog homely white girl like kelly clarkson, fantasia made it only cause the other contender couldnt beat her period....
i think the voting system for these shows is bogus and need to be changed.......there is no way pia should have been booted
I ALWAYS CHOOSE THE WINNER BEFORE THE END AND PIA WAS MY CHOICE AND A LOT OF MATURE PEOPLE JUST GETTIN HOME FROM WORK FEEDING KIDS GETTING THE HOUSE IN CHECK, GOT A LOT OF STUFF TO DO...AND DIDNT VOTE...FOR THIS BRILLIANT VOICE YET...NOW COMPLAIN THAT SHE WAS BOOTED......AMERICA YOU HAVE TO VOTE@@

Love Haley and Pia. Both women transport me and set me vibrating; both move me to tears and chills, Haley especially. I see Haley as another Judy Garland. She doesn't have the power of Janis Joplin, but she makes up for it in versatility. I love the way she combines cabaret with raunchy blues!!! Naima was too abrasive and Thia was not abrasive enough. Thia's singing was too smooth, too sweet, no edges or contrasts, no articulation. Still, I was sorry to see these two leave. I did like Naima's reggae. Paul should have been sent home instead -- along with Jacob and James. Jacob has lost his lower register and now does nothing but cry and over-dramatize, and James is good at burning pianos, but that's not singing.

My heart was crying because my bet Thia Megia sent home.I dont know if I watch again AI without Thia.Her beautiful voice should be heard instead of growling and shouting voices which is not the gauge if the singer is good or not.Well Thia has a mistake in choosing songs ,previously she was given hints to stop choosing ballads but I was surprised when she choosed "Daniel ".When she sang that song the last part of the song has a lyrics of saying "goodbye", I am thinking that she herself is ready to say goodbye to people who loves to see her in the show.She will be missed but with her talent i know she will have a music career waiting ahead.But I will support her all the way even in her other career outside AI.

It's about time they get voted off. Scotty and Lauren are AMAZING

Paul should have been the one instead of Thea, Naima she can't sing glad that she is gone. The opening act with Lauren and Scottie was the best part of the show, they should do a duet together. Jacob should be next can't stand to watch him sing.

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.
