Another boy bites the dust, but who was it? %VIRTUAL-Gallery-182988%
After three superb performances by former American Idol finalists Colton Dixon, One Republic ft. Katharine McPhee, and Keith Urban, last night's results were finally in.
Ryan Seacrest read off the safe finalists (in no particular order). First up was Kree Harrison, followed by Candice Glover. The other three female finalists, Janelle Arthur, Angie Miller and Amber Holcomb, were all safe as well.
That left the three guys. And yes, that meant they were all in this week's bottom 3. Devin Velez, Lazaro Arbos and Burnell Taylor stood in the middle of the stage together as Ryan was about to announce their fate.
The finalists' mentor, Jimmy Iovine, predicted that the boys would be in the bottom 3 this week after Wednesday night's performances. He was right about that, but he also predicted that Lazaro would get sent home. Was he right again?
Unfortunately for Devin, Jimmy was wrong. After receiving the news, Devin had a chance to sing for his life to get a "save" from the judges. (The judges only have three weeks left to use their unanimous vote to save one eliminated finalist.)
After leaving it all on the stage with his performance of "It's Impossible," it was hard for us to believe the judges did not save Devin. Mariah Carey even teared up during his performance.
We weren't the only ones who were shocked. "Really? Wow," Ryan reacted after Randy Jackson announced there would be no second chance for Devin.
Devin took it in stride though and even received some amazing news.
Do you think the judges make a mistake by not saving Devin?
