American Idol Recap: Top 4 Elimination Results 5/10/12

“American Idol” is back tonight with an all new elimination episode of the show. On last night’s performance episode of the show, we saw the top four contestants take on two songs. One of which was a song from an artist or band from California, while the other was an inspirational song with the contestants wished they’d written. In case you’ve missed the performances, we’ve recapped the show live here.

Tonight, four will become three as the competition is getting down to the wire. Jessica Sanchez and Joshua Ledet seemed to really wow the judges last night, so we’re going to guess that they’re safe. Phillip Phillips (our favorite) impressed us with both of his covers, so that leaves Hollie Cavanagh. We’re guessing that after all of the dust settles, we will learn that her time on the show has come to an end.

We say that Hollie is in danger, primarily because she doesn’t even seem to be in the same league as the other singers. Stay tuned, however, as we could be faced with a shocking elimination tonight.

Watch this space — we will be LIVE-BLOGGING the show tonight at 8PM EST. In the meantime, tell us who you think is going home tonight!


The Hometown Heroes episode slated for next week is on the line. David Cook and Jennifer Lopez will be performing tonight! The top four are taking on The Mamas and the Papas’ song “California Dreamin’”. Seems appropriate, no?

Phillip is taking center stage to learn whether or not he’s going to be coming back next week. Phillip is headed back to the couches to learn his fate later. WTF?

Hollie is coming on the stage to find out if she’s going through to next week or if she’s in jeopardy. After Jimmy critiqued her performances, Ryan sent her back to the couches. David Cook is performing. WGWG. That is all.

Joshua is taking the stage for his critique from Jimmy. Blah, he’s being sent back, as well. Jessica is now talking to Ryan about last night’s performances. Back to the couch with her.

Jennifer Lopez took to the stage to promote her tour with Enrique Iglesias. Joined by her boyfriend, Casper Smart, she performed her new song, “Dance Again”.

Heading back to the couch for next week’s episode is Jessica Sanchez! Joshua Ledet is safe, as well!

Getting eliminated on tonight’s show is Hollie Cavanagh! Phillip is safe!

What do you think of tonight’s results? Did America make the right decision?

  7. I so agree with keeping Jessica and Joshua! But I think if Phillip was eliminated tonight then Hollie could clean up her singing and not be as pitchy. I agree she is a good singer! I think Phillip should have been eliminated because Hollie is better than Phillip, when Phillip first started I thought he was bad but then every week he grew! I disagree with Americas choice with Hollie.

  8. I’m sorry Holly got voted off. I was sad when Elise got the boot. I could listen to Phillip Phillip’s music all day long…..easy listening. Any CD Josh made would drive me absolutely crazy!!!!! After the 1st song (not even 2) I would SCREAM with anquish!!!
