We kicked off the first American Idol results show of Season 13 with a group sing and a promo for this summer's tour.
Okay, not the strongest opening. But, hey, there are 58 minutes to kill before we find out the initial finalist eliminated, isn't there?
After learning Ben Briley, Alex Preston and Jena Irene are say, Malaya Watson is sent to the Bottom 3.
Up next? Dexter Roberts is safe. Majesty Rose and Sam Woolf are as well. But MK Nobilette is off to the Bottom 3.
C.J. Harris, Caleb Johnson, Emily Piriz and Jessica Meuse? On to the next round. Kristen O'Conner? To the Bottom 3 - and there you have it.
We then learn that O'Connor earned the least number of votes and her attempt at a judges' save ("Turning Tables") falls on deaf ears.
KRISTEN O'CONNOR IS THE FIRST AMERICAN IDOL FINALIST ELIMINATED.
Did viewers make the right choice in voting off O'Connor?
