Following the most surprising American Idol vote of the season, the top seven gathered once again this week to learn which of them would be going home.

After two performances from each of the contestants on Wednesday – along with a song tonight by Kris Allen and a tribute to Dick Clark – it came down to a bottom three of Hollie Cavanagh, Elise Testone and, for the first time so far, Colton Dixon.

And the unlucky eliminate-ee?


“I need to apologize. I wasn’t myself last night and I get it,” Dixon said with class and grace upon hearing the news.

What do you think, THGers? Did America get it right? Should Colton have been sent packing?
