The pressure was on for the remaining American Idol finalists this week.

Following Sam Woolf's save last week, there will be more more Season 13 pardons. This is now it. If the viewers say so, you are out of the competition.

With that scary knowledge secure in their minds, the Top 8 took the stage last night (with David Cook as a mentor) and belted out covers of classics from the 1980s.

How did they fare? It wasn't the most memorable performance episode of all-time, with many hopefuls choosing obvious tracks and no one really blowing us away.

But you can cycle through all eight solo auditions now and then vote on your favorite:

The Great 8 has become the Heavenly 7.

Or has it?

Following an impressive performance show that saw the remaining American Idol contestants rehash original audition songs, viewers were left with a difficult decision on Thursday: 

Who deserved to get voted out?

Sam Woolf is Saved!

The answer came down to Sam Woolf, Malaya Watson and C.J. Harris, as this trio earned the lowest number of votes.

American Idol went back to the beginning last night, as the eight remaining finalists performed songs from some of their original auditions.

And it was easily the best performance episode of Season 13.

Two contestants impressed us with original songs, while a couple others re-arranged their classics, made them their own... and left us scrambling over to iTunes to download.

Who stood out the most? Who could be in danger of elimination? Click, listen and be awed by the Top 8 now:

Majesty Rose has been forced to abdicate her American Idol throne.

The young hopeful was eliminated from the Fox series last night and told reporters soon afterward that she has mixed feelings about the result.

Majesty Says Goodbye

"Obviously I'm sad,” Rose said. "But at the same time I am really happy because I made it. What number am I? [Top 9.] That's really good out of over 75,000 people. I can't be all that sad. There's worse things going on in the world than this, definitely."

Thanks to the premiere of Surviving Jack (seriously... thanks!) the drawn-out American Idol results show was cut to 30 minutes this week.

So we won't waste any time in revealing the Bottom 3 after what most believed was a fairly entertaining performance episode:

Sorry, Majesty Rose, CJ Harris and Sam Woolf.

American Idol 9

But even more sorry to Majesty in particular because she earned the lowest number of votes.

Last night marked yet another mediocre performance episode of American Idol Season 13.

But at least Jennifer Lopez did all she could do to liven up the live proceedings... but dropping an F Bomb during one of her critiques!

The accidental incident took place when J. Lo was gushing over Jena Irene and her cover of Evanescence's "Bring Me To Life.

Note to American Idol producers: 

You don't need to keep churning out theme nights every week. It's not, like a law or anything.

Following last week's vague performance theme of Hits Since the Year 2010, viewers were treated to Rickey Minor and company playing a key role Wednesday evening for "I’m With the Band!" night.

It was random... but was it entertaining?

Yes, if you’re name was Alex Preston or Majesty Rose. These hopeful covered a couple classics and did No Dobut and Florence + The Machine, respectively, proud.

Who else stood out? Who will be on the chopping block tonight? Click through all nine performances here and then vote below:

She brought tears to the eyes of Jennifer Lopez and the crowd to its feet on American Idol last night.

But when all was said and done, MK Nobilette was eliminated from the Fox competition.

The first openly gay contestant in show history, Nobilette told reporters after the news was announced that she sort of saw it coming.

Farewell, MK Nobillette

"The whole night kind of sucked," Nobilette said, adding of her Wednesday performance. "I definitely did the worst out of everybody because I fumbled so hard. "

And then there were nine.

Following dinner with the finalists, Jennifer Lopez took to the stage and performed "I Luh Ya Papi," including alums such as Pia Toscano, Allison Iraheta and Jessica Sanchez in the opening.

It was a hot dance number, gotta give J-Lo that.

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.
