American Idol Results Night: Who Went Home And Why?

Subscribe To:

And then there were ten. Ten American Idol finalists, that is. It’s getting to be that time in the competition, when the hearts of the remaining Idol hopefuls just don’t seem to be in it (at least for now). If you've somehowe managed to avoid spoilers thus far, be warned: SPOILERS BELOW, So, so many of them. It came as no surprise when the bottom three – terrible word choice, by the way – was named as: Sam Wolfe, Ben Briley and Majesty Rose. And the winner, pardon, loser is… Ben Briley.

Ben Briley, American Idol Finalists Party
Sorry Ben, much like a Katherine Heigl movie, it just wasn't meant to be.

Briley’s name coming up wasn’t really a surprise after his performance during Wednesday movie night. Passing off Bennie and the Jets as a Song from the Cinema was more than a bit of a stretch. Yes, it was featured on the 27 Dresses soundtrack, but come on! In any case, the judges didn’t buy it and neither did the audience.

Keith Urban, American Idol
Keith Urban didn't feel that Briley's performance was artistic enough.

Ben chose to sing Grace Potter and the Nocturnals' "Stars," for his "Save Me" song. He put up a good fight, but in the end, the judges chose not to save him, rounding out the final ten instead. Keith Urban explained that he wishes Ben had shown America more of an artistic quality whenever he took the stage. Whatever that means. If you’re keeping score, this leaves us with C.J. Harris, Jenna Irene, Caleb Johnson, Jessica Meuse, MK Nobilette, Alex Preston, Dexter Roberts, Majesty Rose, Malaya Watson and Sam Woolf still in the running.

American Idol Finalists
Three down, ten more to go.
