Well, someone had to be first.
On the first elimination show of 2014, American Idol voted out Kristen O'Connor Thursday night, a Wild Card entrant who knew she had no chance at earning the judges' save.
"I think we all knew that no matter who it was, they probably weren't going to save them," O'Connor told reporter backstage. "I knew especially for me it wasn't going to happen no matter how good the performance was. So I just knew I wanted to go out with a bang and I was proud of the performance I gave."
Kristen was in the Bottom 3 along with MK Nobilette and Malaya Watson.
