American Idol: Who Was Eliminated?

By Radar Staff

Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez and Randy Jackson enjoyed Deandre Brackensick’s smooth rendition of DeBarge‘s I Like It, but the viewers weren’t as high on the San Jose singer, giving him the least votes of any of the remaining finalists.   

The real drama kicked in Thursday when J.Lo made it clear she was willing to use her one-time-only save card to spare the curly-haired Brackensick, but did not receive the support of Tyler or Jackson.

“This boy right here, we’ve been watching him for two years — you’re an amazing performer, and I stand by that,” Lopez said. “I think you have an amazing voice, and you’re going to share a lot with the world, I really do believe that.

“I only get one vote — I’m sorry, we’re not saving you tonight — I’m sorry.”

Rounding out the bottom three with Brackensick were Hollie Cavanagh and Elise Testone, who both looked like they were on the verge of elimination after their lukewarm performances Wednesday.
