And the cuts just keep on coming!

Before we get into that, does any one else think that it was beyond random that Kevin Bacon opened tonight's live results show of American Idol? We love Bacon, and we know that he's the star of Fox's The Following, (which we love!) but we would have never guessed that surprise appearance in a million years. But hey, we ain't mad at it. We love bacon in any form we can get.

If you're already missing Dexter, don't you worry! Mr. Roberts will be apart of the American Idol tour this summer.

Do you think Dexter deserved to be eliminated? Who do you think will be the next winner of American Idol? Sing your thoughts in the comments below!
