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?

AMERICAN IDOL IS NOT PHILIPPINE IDOL! Please vote for an AMERICAN.
By the way Jessica likes shopping for a hobby. What a young and immature stupid behavior. SHOPPING IS NOT A HOBBY. SEWING IS A HOBBY. SHE CLAIMS TO BE PROUD TO BE A FILLIPINA. SHE NEVER SAYS SHE IS PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN !!!! Wake up voters

Sure Jessica can imitate famous singers, she is young and has not recorded her own written songs and singing all this songs from all this famous singers is merely showing audiences what she can do with her voice,why can we just admit that this girl can control her voice and very very talented when it comes to singing and i am sure a very smart to just memorize all that lyrics, SO GOOD FOR YOU JUDGES FOR SAVING JESSICA, AMERICAN IDOL NEEDS TO CHANGES THE VOTING SYSTEM TOO MANY TALENTS ARE BEING VOTED OUT DUE TO THIS VOTING SYSTEM,, IT SUCKS!!!

Given that most of the fans and people who would be voting for Jessica would be young, I think that Jessica made a mistake in choosing a song that would not have appealed to them.....Nor was it a known song. I'm a Jessica fan but I did not recognize her song choice...and I'm guessing most of the fans would not have bothered voting at all.

This is a contest so judges don't ask america to vote and you do what you want to do.I agree with tinat702. If the judges are going to play this game why vote at all?

If American Idol is a contest then the judges are wrong to try and manipulate the voting public into voting according to their judgment. In the past this has proven to be a poor strategy as the public tends to ignore their advice and admonitions at this stage of the contest. I, for one thought that whole debacle involving the very dramatic JLO and Randy was over the top and phony. Don't have a favourite yet. Been watching AI since the beginning and the only time I got it wrong was Adam Lambert. I doubt that Jessica will win.

I salute you judges.. may be it was a test for judges. They had never been hard or active on any body in their judgement before.. well, they pasted the test.Jessica is the biggest there. I have never voted before.. but i will busy busy next week just to vote for her and Josh... the rest are trash.

Some voters here are obviously racists & they are voting for the good looking contestants not the singing talents. Anyway, that's how the way they voted>>>>> being arrogant & bullies! I am not an American & I cannot vote as well, but I am an avid watcher of American Idol from the middle east! Judges should be fair in judging & should not depend on what others voted from those discriminating youngsters!

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.
