The “American Idol” Top 10 turned into the Top 9 on Thursday with one contestant shockingly eliminated.
Curtis Finch Jr. surprisingly earned the lowest amount of votes, despite earning a standing ovation from the judges just last week.
Nicki Minaj was shocked, and actually got up from the judges’ table, and started walking away mouthing “I’m done.”
She went back to her seat as Finch performed “I Believe I Can Fly” — the song he received the ovation for — in hopes of being saved.
And Minaj noted before his performance, “If you go home, I’m going home.”
In the end, with the judges not in agreement about saving Finch, he was eliminated.
Minaj expressed her outrage, especially at the short time they were given to deliberate.
