American Idol Results: Who Remains?

by at . Comments

For their second performances last night, the remaining American Idol finalists sang tracks they wished they had written.

This evening, though, the wishes of only three contestants would come true. So, perfect segue behind us, who got the boot?

American Idol Top 4

Following performances by David Cook and Jennifer Lopez, along with the announcement that both Jessica Sanchez and Joshua Ledet were safe, it came down to Phillip Phillips and Hollie Cavanaugh. And the eliminated contestant this week is...


Cavanaugh took the news better than good friend Ledet, as she sang her farewell to "The Climb" and the audience stood up and cheered. What do you think, readers? Did voters make the right choice in sending Hollie home?


What is wrong with you people, Phillip is awesome, Josh sounds like something from the 50's and 60's.... Really.... Jessica is awesome too she never misses a note. The votes have been on Q.


Joshua seems so sincere and his smile is precious. I believe that even though he is a "church singer" he will be listened to and appreciated by many age groups! Both he and Jessica have a God given talent but I believe that he will handle the success humbly that would come to him if he wins, Jessica appears to be a bit more self assured but not necessarily more likeable as a human being.




JESSICA has the widest range of VOCALS...


Phil should be gone next, then it's a flip for who wins.
My wish is for Joshua, the guy with the most emotion and soul.
Jessica is close, but no cookie, just too young at this point.


Joahua has sung balladls, duet with Phillip , he knows how to use his voice he sings it all


Jessica stinks,Hollie rocks


Jessica has the best vocals and I hope she wins the title.


Joshua and Jessica are great singers


Phillip is the real deal, Joshua can sing but honestly he won't sell the kind of music he screams, that belongs in theater or gospel... Holli was awesome and could sell records and Jessica can sing like nobody's business but she would do musicals better than records.


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.
