Janelle Arthur saw it coming.

Speaking to reporters after her American Idol elimination last night, the singer said she turned to Candice Glover prior to taking the stage and said:

“This is the deal: I’m going home. They’re not gonna save me, but I love you.”

The American Idol Top 8 took their act to Detroit this week, covering songs by artists who hail from the Motor City.

Did this variation on Motown Night pay off? For some, yes.

Janelle Arthur broke out her guitar and broke down "You Keep Me Hangin’ On" in very impressive fashion. See for yourself:

For others? Far less so, most notably Angie Miller, who failed to show the "fun crazy side" she promised prior to her failure to really rock out on "Shop Around."

And Lazaro Arbos, who attempted to cover Stevie Wonder and whose voice was simply not up to the challenge. Will it finally be time to say goodbye to Arbos tonight?
