American Idol: The Elimination That Brings Jennifer Lopez To Tears

February 23, 2011 07:10 AM by Lisa Princ

American Idol on FOX is back tonight as we head to Las Vegas where the contestants will be narrowed down again and tomorrow the top 24 will be revealed. On Thursday’s episode we will see one particular elimination that is so emotional it brings Jennifer Lopez to tears. Keep reading for more information – but beware this contains a spoiler, so do not read if you don’t want to be spoiled!

Last week, American Idol executive producer warned us that something something emotional would affect Jennifer Lopez on the show, and I guess it is safe to assume this is it. According to numerous sources on the web, on Thursday’s episode we will watch as Jennifer Lopez has to break the news of elimination to hopeful Chris Medina, in which she will suffer an emotional breakdown. Jennifer was touched by Chris’ story of devotion to his paralyzed fiancee that she cannot help but be reduced to tears during his elimination.

In Thursday’s “Green Mile” episode – titled as such because the contestants are made to walk through a long room to get to hear their fate from the judges is when we will get to find out who the top 24 are. Chris Medina, who makes the top 40 apparently does not make the cut. Chris, whose love story blew the judges away just as much as his signing did during auditions will not be leaving empty handed however. It has been reported that the hopeful has received over $24k in donations towards his fiancee’s medical bills thus far since airing his story. What do you think of Chris Medina? Do you think he should have made the top 24? Comment and share your thoughts with us!

    our family has watched american idol for 10 years and this has been the best ever. jennifer, steven and randy being all with great musical background has had the best group of talent i have ever seen.
    my son tried out in north carolina 3 or 4 years ago and was told they were not looking for skilled talent. even though he has a rn degree, he has a minor in music because his scholorship was for voice, he is a great singer. i am trying to talk him into audition for next season if these judges are there next year! this year has been AWESOME!!!! keep up the great work.

    I must say, I am DISAPPOINTED in the way they let Chris Medina go…they drew it out way way too much…this guy had a lot riding on this and it was in my opinion CRUEL to let him down so hard and with such insensitive game playing….shame on AI and shame on you Jennifer Lopez…you were crying because you were told to do it in a way that makes you and the show look like a bunch of bullies!!!!!

    Maybe, God has plans for Chris Medina — much much better. There goes a saying “The best is yet to come”. God bless Chris and God bless AI.
