American Idol Elimination: Who Remains?

by at . Comments

Despite having two chances to sing for the votes of viewers on Tuesday night, no American Idol finalist distinguished himself or herself this week.

There was no clear cut favorite to stick around or to be sent home, making this evening's elimination the most difficult of the season to predict.

So, which unlucky crooner won't be taking us back to his hometown next week?

Jams Durbin heard his name called by Ryan Seacrest tonight, surprising many viewers who thought the aspiring rocker had the best chance to go all the way.

"I worked so damn hard to get here," James said, fighting back tears. "God, I was really hoping to get there, but, you know, I had a feeling today. God, I did so much stuff that's never been done on this show before... In my eyes, in my mind, I did what I came here to do - and that was to give metal a chance."

He then performed "Maybe I'm Amazed" as his farewell song.

This leaves three contestants remaining: Scotty McCreary, Lauren Alaina and Haley Reinhart. Did the viewers get it right by voting off Durbin?
