And at last, we're in the single digits!
The week, the top ten finalists of American Idol aimed to impress the judges with their pop-tastic choices for the Post 2011 Music theme. And although some of the performances were truly awe-inspiring, (We're looking at you Alex Preston!), it's time to start weeding out the weaklings from the season 13 pack.
Tonight, Jennifer Lopez stepped heavily into the spotlight in an effort to promote her new single, "I Luh Ya Papi," and welcomed back Idol alums Pia Toscano, Jessica Sanchez, and Alison Iraheta to discuss their favorites from this season. After this blast from the past, and some truly amazing harmonizing, J-Lo rocked the Idol stage along with her surprise guest, French Montana.
But soon it was time to say goodbye to one of this week's bottom three contestants: Dexter Roberts, Majesty Rose, and MK Nobilette.
And MK Nobilette was voted out of the top ten!
In an effort to save herself from elimination, MK took the stage and belted out a heart-breakingly emotional rendition of John Legend's "All of Me." Within minutes J-Lo was in tears and it was clear that the pop sensation wanted to save MK from the fate that America dolled out.
Unlike previous weeks, the judges took a long while to discuss the possibility of using their extremely important "Save" on MK. After the final break, Ryan Seacrest asked the judges for their verdict. Jennifer couldn't bring herself to say the words, so it was up to Harry to deliver the bad news: They did not save MK from elimination, however it's worth noting that their decision was not unanimous one.
Do you think MK deserved to be eliminated from the competition? Who do you think will be the next winner of American Idol? Sing your thoughts in the comments below!
