At least Robbie Carrico has more time now to read about Britney Spears news.

The ex-boyfriend of that troubled singer was one of four American Idol contestants voted off the show last night. Viewers never bought Carrico's transformation from boy band singer to hard rocker.

Fans also gave the boot to Alaina Whitaker, Jason Yeager and Alex Lushington. When Whitaker (pictured below) heard her name called, she let out a loud cry.

"Sorry, this is so embarrassing," she told host Ryan Seacrest, who consoled her with a hug.

Alaina Whitaker isn't part of the final 16 on American Idol. David Archuleta, Michael Johns and Brooke White certainly are, however.

Alaina Whitaker didn't lack confidence on American Idol last night. When asked if she looks like Carrie Underwood, the 16-year old from Oklahoma responded:

I'd like to think Carrie Underwood looks like me.

We like the confidence - but we loved the voice and the fact that she's moving on to Hollywood. Check out her audition of Faith Hill's "Stronger" now:

Aside from Whitaker, here are a few names to keep in mind from the Dallas auditions last night:

  • Kady Malloy (follow our link to hear her Britney Spears impression!)
  • Colton Swon
  • Kayla Hatfield
  • Jessica Brown
  • Kyle Ensley

No sighting yet of Carly Hennessy - the singer with a professional background who many have dubbed an early season favorite - but we'll keep you posted!

Did we leave anyone out? Who was your favorite contestant on last night's American Idol?
