It was a double elimination on the hit FOX reality show American Idol Wednesday night. Because the judges used their save last week to keep Michael Lynche in the competition, it was determined that two of the remaining nine competitors would be given their walking papers this week.

Show host Ryan Seacrest reported that after the 22 million votes were tallied, the two going home were Andrew Garcia and Katie Stevens. All is not lost for the singing hopefuls because they will rejoin the rest of their Idol pals when summer rolls around. Having made the Top 10, they are guaranteed a contract to travel on the AI tour.

Performing last night were Brooke White and Justin Gaston who sang “If I Can Dream” – check it out here.

The seven remaining contestants are Crystal Bowersox, Siobhan Magnus, Michael Lynche, Tim Urban, Aaron Kelly, Lee DeWyze, and Casey James.
