Kristy Lee Cook Sent Home on American Idol

by at .

A series of mediocre performances finally caught up to Kristy Lee Cook last night, as the pretty American Idol contestant with a disdain for Simon Cowell was voted off the show.

Cowell was a constant thorn in Cook's side, telling her on Tuesday night "you didn't give me chills," but "you managed with what you could."

Viewers agreed with the judge, as they included Kristy Lee in the bottom three last night, along with Syesha Mercado and Brooke White. When she heard the news, Cook cried bit, only for the equine enthusiast to buck up, thank America for voting and ask:"Can I go ride my horse now?"

Yes, Kristy Lee. Go ride away the pain.

Brooke White's tears come from the authentic, good soul that she is. Her heart was breaking because she was overwhelmed with the experience she had with the show and the gift that it brought.
