Last night on American Idol on FOX we watched as the top 13 took the stage and tonight we saw the results as well as a performance by season eight runner up Adam Lambert! Keep reading to find out who was sent home this week!
American Idol kicked off the top 13 elimination results show as Ryan Seacrest announced that Casey Abrams was not in attendance as he was in the hospital again. Then we watched the top 13 perform a medley of Michael Jackson songs followed by their Ford music video and then it was time for some results. Jacob Lusk, Karen Rodriguez and Stefano Langone were the first group called up to the stage and Ryan told Karen Rodriguez that she was in the bottom three but both boys were safe.
Next we saw an amazing acoustic performance of “Aftermath” by Adam Lambert and if you loved it, click here for details on how you can get this tune as proceeds will go to charity. Then it was time for more results and Ryan called up Lauren Alaina, Haley Reinhart and Ashton Jones to the stage and Lauren revealed that she was not happy with her performance after she watched it. Ryan then tried to spook her by telling her he was sorry to say and finished by telling her that she would have to endure more of the show.
After reviewing both Ashton and Haley’s performances from last night on American Idol, Ryan told Ashton that she was in the bottom three but then also told Haley she was in the bottom three as well. That made the bottom three after America voted Karen Rodriguez, Haley Reinhart and Ashton Jones. That also meant that everyone else was safe, including all of the guys, I guess America prefers the guys this season? Then we got see a performance of “Coming home” by Diddy Dirty Money Featuring Skylar Grey.
Finally it was time to find out if it would be Karen Rodriguez, Haley Reinhart or Ashton Jones who would be heading home after America had their say. Ryan told Karen Rodriguez that she would be returning for at least one more week. So with only Haley and Ashton left, Haley was sent off to safety as Ashton was told she had the lowest number of votes. With that said Ashton chose to perform another Diana Ross tune in hopes that the judges would use their save to keep her in the competition. After her performance the judges decided that they would not be saving Ashton Jones, instead she would be heading home. Best of luck to Ashton Jones!
