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?


I was sorry to see adorable Hollie go home last nite...I truly cannot stand that Phillip Phillips, and i am hoping and praying that he is the next to go...i don't get him, his music, or the weird faces he makes week after week...what the hell is all the hype about this freak anyhow....the finale should be Jessica and Joshua, with Jessica winning....without a doubt she is the best singer on A.I.PERIOD>>>>>>>>>


I personally like Phillip..i'm not a teeny bopper..I'm in my late 70's and that is the music i would buy and LISTEN too..not the screaming vocals..Joshua is a given..and altho Jessica is technically correct..i have a hard time watching a young girl dressed up like an old ? etc...i see younger and younger children dressed and pushed to act older than their age more and more...Not all top winners end up at the top..a lot of the runner ups become very successful..


i really love jessica perfromence because i feel that song


Here's my complaint: these singers are exhausted there is not an ounce of energy in any of their performances. Either they're shooting smack or they are being over worked to their core because free labor is a thing to abuse. AI shamelessly overworks these guys to fill a 2hr show. THe show is overproduced and even the judges are a snooze fest.


LOL Hard to believe Phil wasn't eliminated! Maybe somebody miscounted the votes???


it's hard to predict who gonna win this competition..all of these three contestant remain are good singers..but in the top 2 i think it's between phil-joshua or phil-jessica..because joshua n jessica have the same vocal character..


Would really like to see Gene Simmons as a guest judge to find out if he could provide the candid, edgier commentary that's missing without Simon.


Phillip has been my favorite since the beginning, but, i think that it should have come down to Phillip and Hollie. I think that Hollie deserved to stay just because she has come so far since the beginning. Sure Joshua has a great voice, but he's not the best performer. And as far as Jessica goes, I just feel like she's screaming at me the whole time she sings.I just do not like her at all. SO i think America made the wrong decision! Hollie should have won or been second at least, she deserved it more than any of the others.


I think all the contestants this year had more talent than the judges could contribute to. I just get irritated at their comments they are so worthless. It's true all they understand is screaming. I would love to see different judges. I MISS SIMON!


I do believe that Hollie's voice not that bad,give the proper training , unlike Philip Philips,all his fellow contestants already belting out their voices to the fullest and his just like singing always safe notes,I am wandering if he will sing Jon Von Jovi songs, Michael Bolton ,James Ingram , dont know what will hqppen to him,he might be fainted flat on the floor.


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.

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.
