It was another sad elimination night at American Idol
started off with this weeks top 3 (in no particular order). First announced was fan favorite Kree Harrison
, followed by Angie Miller
and for the first time, Lazaro Arbos.
There were a few dropped jaws in the room because Candice Glover
did not make this week's top 3, but luckily, Candice is still safe this week, along with Amber Holcomb
and Janelle Arthur
Based off of last nights
performance, the finalist's mentor, Jimmy Iovine
predicted this weeks
top 3 to be Amber, Angie and Kree, with Lazaro being the one sent home.
With one guy making the top 3, that leaves us with Burnell Taylor as the 7th eliminated finalist on this season of Idol
Burnell had to sing for his life with "Ready For Love" by India Arie
, but the judges still chose not to use their unanimous save this week. (Guess they are waiting for next week since the judges only have the save for one more week, right?!)
During his performance, there wasn't a dry eye in the house. The finalists and judges Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj were tearing up and Nicki even went up to stage to say
bye to Burnell! There really is a first for everything.
Stay tuned for our post-show interview with Burnell.
