Well? Who among American Idol‘s final six is no longer with us?

Did the singer a lot of us expected to get the boot actually get it tonight? Or did voters have yet another surprise up their sleeves here in Season 10?

As we saw it, Jacob Lusk would end up in the bottom three, while James Durbin and Scotty McCreery would be safe. Beyond that? Anyone’s guess.

It turns out there wasn’t even a bottom three tonight …

Ryan just started send people to safety in random order until there’s no one left. First Haley Reinhart, then James, then Lauren Alaina were in the clear.

Scotty, Jacob and Casey Abrams were left vying for two of the three safe spots. Follow the jump to see which singer left American Idol this evening

Casey Abrams was voted out, with no judges’ save to rescue him.

The jazz singer from Idyllwild, Calif., had quite a run – many weeks longer than it likely should have gone – but it reached the end tonight, surprisingly.

“This is what talent looks like, ladies and gentlemen,” Ryan Seacrest said, as he introduced Casey for his final performance, “I Put a Spell On You.”

Didn’t see it coming. He wasn’t the strongest in the field, but we saw Jacob Lusk going home this week. But once again, the votes are the votes.

Congratulations on a great run, Casey. Now, on to the top five …

What do you think? Did America get it right voting off Casey?
