And once again, we're down to ten.

Tonight, American Idol gave us a not-so shocking elimination, as our remaining contestants continue on their quest to be the next singing sensation. Hey let's be honest, they can't be jaw-droppers each and every week.

On Wednesday night, our finalists sang their hearts out to their favorite big-screen selections, and we finally started to hear some Kelly Clarkson-worthy performances.

Do you think Ben 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!
