American Idol Results: Elimination Night Shocker!

by at . Comments

American Idol treated us to seven great performances last night.

But the remaining finalists were forced to look ahead on this evening's results show, as America voted and revealed an inevitable, but sad result for one aspirant:

He or she is going home. Who's on to the top six and who's out?

American Idol Top 7

It looked briefly like fan favorite Phillip Phillips might be in danger, but it came down to a surprising bottom three: Jessica Sanchez, Joshua Ledet and Elise Testone.

That's right, arguably the three best singers remaining on the show were in danger of getting booted, making for the most gut-wrenching elimination this year.

The contestant getting the boot this week was an even bigger stunner, too. Who was it? You're not going to believe it, but the lowest vote-getter was ...

Jessica Sanchez.

The studio erupted in chaos at this news, but as she began to sing for her life, she was interrupted by Jennifer Lopez, who informed her that she had been ...

SAVED by the judges!!

There it is, the one and only judges' save of the season, used on a powerhouse performer who definitely didn't deserve to be in danger, let alone go home.

"We are saving Jessica, without a doubt!" Randy said as the judges engulfed her. "This girl is one of the best singers in America! Ever! Are you kidding me!"

"Everybody, please vote for the best! Come on!"

It remains to be seen if America will heed his words a week from now, but for now, all seven singers survive heading into next Wednesday's Top 7: Reloaded.

What do you think? Did the judges make the right call?

hummm, has an Asian won AI, I think not. I don't think it will ever happen. Only white or blacks has the numbers to vote, I voted for many in the past and did not look at color. Lets face it America is not color blind.

America's vote had NOTHING to do with racism. This show is called American Idol for a reason.....america picks their favorite. It is not called Judges idol. The judges were very wrong to rush the stage like thewy did and show their immaturity andinsult not only the other contestants but america's millions of votes. i believe they just destroyed the show.

Jessica has an amazing voice, tone and quality with great stage presence and an ease in singing any notes, she is not forcing it. Holly has a strong voice but needs a great deal more training because her high notes are very forced and slightly under the pitch. You can almost see her tonsils when she's hitting those big high notes and her fingers turn red whle she's holding the mike so tightly. Right now she doesn't have the right approach, confidence or ease of singing.

I do believe that Jessica is at par much better when it comes to voice quality and she is really awesome. But that doesn't mean she is eventually on her top. American Idol relies on votes and no matter how bad you sing or good its the votes that counts. Jessica might not win the American idol but she will be the next singing sensation in the future and will over shadow who ever wins the American Idol of 2012. The judges won't saved her if they don't believe in her but as all we know... its the votes that counts and ratings of the show.

if you have a voice that sings well, the whole idol look can be changed. And I believe Jessica is born to 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.
