The American Idol results are in!

On the heels of the news that Randy Jackson will be leaving after 12 seasons of sitting in judgment of hundreds of aspiring pop stars (news that Ryan Seacrest couldn't help but acknowledge), another talented young lady was sent home tonight—just shy of next week's finale.

"Of course, a little later on, we'll be revealing who is leaving our show," Ryan said, turning Randy's chair slightly and giving him a pointed look. The veteran judge played coy, shaking his head and laughing as if he didn't know what Ryan could possibly be referring to.

"Maybe a heads-up?" Ryan cracked before moving on to the first order of business of the night: Candice Glover, Kree Harrison and Angie Miller joining forces on Selena Gomez's "Who Says."

But the pièce de résistance was, of course, the elimination.

And it is Angie who will not be competing for the Idol crown. She couldn't help but choke up as her most memorable moments on the show flashed by in a montage—and then, tears flowing, she was barely able to power through a cover of Colton Dixon's "Never Gone," one of her biggest hits from earlier in the season.

So, it's Candice and Kree for all the marbles next week! Best of luck, ladies!

Do you think the right pair made the finale? Sound off in the comments!
