American Idol fans axe one of the best. What’s up?

And then there were five.

Ryan Seacrest told us at the top of the show that we would be disappointed with the outcome of tonight's results - and he wasn't wrong: In somewhat of a shocker, Casey Abrams was eliminated from 'American Idol.'

Of course, the elimination wasn't totally surprising, as Casey was actually eliminated on a previous episode. (He was then saved by the judges.) Even so, it didn't feel like it was his time to go, especially after his crowd-pleasing performance on Wednesday. Then again, it's a talented group of six, so tonight's results were guaranteed to have at least some shock value.

Another American Idol hopeful falls

On Wednesday night, Jennifer Lopez said, "It's getting down to the wire and it's time to bring out the big guns." That statement will become more relevant as each week goes by.

We're now down to the top 6, as 'American Idol's' wild card pick, Stefano Langone -- who made it very far in the competition after nearly being eliminated a handful of times -- was eliminated from competition on Thursday.

It was another jam-packed elimination show, as we got to see the contestants go to an L.A. Dodgers game, have some fun at bowling, get the full spa treatment and lasso some clouds. And if that wasn't enough, we also saw performances from 'Idol' season 7 winner David Cook and superstars Katy Perry and Kanye West.

American Idol says goodbye to Paul McDonald

J. Lo said it best when she said, "You gotta stop singing to stay; you gotta start singing to win."

It was a good piece of advice, but unfortunately for Paul McDonald, it came a little too late: Paul's quirky style and unique soft voice have been eliminated from 'American Idol,' according to PopCrush. There's a lot of talent on the show this year, so as the weeks go by, main contenders will have to be cast off the show. That's life on 'American Idol.'

A Better Way For West Michigan To Judge American Idol?

Do you think the way "Idol" eliminates performers is flawed.  I do.  A lot of people do.   Following Pia Toscano's surprising elimination last week, "Idol" producer Nigel Lythgoe suggested having the viewers' votes determine the bottom three and having the judges decide who goes home.  Three-quarters of the respondents in an ongoing AccessHollywood.com

Great news for American Idol’s Pia Toscano

American Idol Wannabe Casey Abrams Upset

HOW CAN IT BE!  How can American Idol's Top Contender, Casey Abrams,  receive the least amount of votes this week on American Idol.  He literally had to "sing for his lifeline".  The question?  Would the judges give him the only "save" for the season? 

So how did the guy with the most Twitter followers, the guy who was and has been the front runner for the title, end up in the bottom three?   Could America have

Name Your Idol Favorite

Andy and I were talking on WTRV this morning about American Idol and how it looks like Aerosmith will be performing sometime before season's end. I was hoping to hear the older pre 1979 Aerosmith. Not politically correct, but the drugged-up Aerosmith were much better

Idol Was A Tough “Ladies Night!”

Unlike the men of the night before , the dozen women in the “American Idol” semifinals had a hard time standing out from the crowd.

With at least five spots there for the taking (and as many as eight, depending on how the judges spend those three wildcards), nerves and song choices helped keep anyone from separating from the pack early. But the show closed with three straight performances that allowed things to finish on a high note.

Do The “Guy’s” Have It?

There’s only one semifinal round of “American Idol” this season, and the field of 24 will be cut to 13 following Thursday’s results show. Only five men are guaranteed spots in that group, which is terrible news for the judges, since they loved pretty much everyone.
