The Top 10 has become The Elite 8.
Following a mediocre performance show on Wednesday, two more contestants were sent home on the Fox competition this week.
First, Khaya Cohen was given the bad news, as Mario Lopez told her at the outset of the hour that she garnered the least number of overall votes.
From there, it was down to a pair of Paulina's charges, Carlito Olivero and Tim Olstad, and it was time for the duo to sing for their survival.
Olstad went first with “You Raise Me Up" and Olivero followed with “Beneath Your Beautiful.”
Who impressed the least?
Kelly Rowland voted to oust Olstad, Demi Lovato did the same and then Rubio actually concurred, making it unnecessary for Simon Cowell to even voice his opinion.
So long, Cohen and Olstad. You had a great run.
