Paige Miles Voted Off American Idol

by at . Comments

With a couple of notable exceptions, Tuesday's American Idol performances left plenty to be desired, and plenty of people wondering who'd end up in the bottom three.

Last week, Paige Miles was narrowly spared from elimination. Wednesday, though, the 24-year-old Floridian's run on American Idol came to an appropriate conclusion.

Paige's promising voice and great personality weren't enough to overcome her erratic song selection and a quite lackluster rendition of Phil Collins' "Against All Odds."

To the surprise of no one, Tim Urban joined Paige in the bottom three again, along with Katie Stevens, whose "Big Girls Don't Cry" nearly resulted in tears of her own.

Next week, it's R&B/Soul time, with Usher serving as mentor and guest performer. Miley Cyrus rocked the house last night, and we'll have video of that for you soon.

American Idol Quotes

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.

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.
