American Idol is now down to 12.
Following an evening that paid tribute to Whitney Houston and Stevie Wonder - and included the Performance of the Season in Jessica Sanchez's "I Will Always Love You" rendition - the Fox competition sent its first finalist packing tonight. And the unlucky contestant was...
... Jeremy Rosado!
The Jer-Bear was a bundle of nerves prior to his cover of "Ribbon in the Sky" last night, knowing he was a judges' Wild Card pick from the week before and really had to prove himself to viewers. Sadly, he won't have any more opportunities to do so.
What do you think? Did Jeremy deserve to go home?
