Another singer was eliminated from American Idol Thursday, continuing an unexpected trend, and raising some eyebrows in the process.

SPOILER: Who Was Eliminated On American Idol?

Yet another guy was given his walking papers, as Louisiana native Burnell Taylor finished last, after stumbling during his Wednesday night performance of Bon Jovi's You Give Love a Bad Name.


While Mariah Carey was crying over Burnell's elimination, the judges did not unanimously agree to award him a save after his last chance performance of India.Arie's Ready For Love.

"I’m sorry, no," Randy Jackson told him. "Good luck brother, we love you, we love you."

While many might have expected Lazaro Arbos to be sent home -- especially after forgetting the song lyrics twice a night earlier -- the resilient 21-year-old from Florida wound up among the top three in votes received. (The inspirational singer might get cut even more slack in coming weeks, as he remains the only boy left in the competition, and the heartthrob vote has to go somewhere.)

Thursday's show also featured performances from season nine finalist Casey James, and Idol winner-turned-mainstream superstar Carrie Underwood, who returned to the show that made her a star to belt out her new single, See You Again.


The remaining singers in the competition are Arbos, Janelle Arthur, Candice Glover, Kree Harrison, Amber Holcomb, and Angela Miller.
