Who Was Eliminated on American Idol?

Truth rating: 10

By Shari Weiss


“American Idol” went from the Top 7 to Top 6 on Thursday’s results show. After naming four safe contestants, Ryan Seacrest ultimately revealed that Dexter Roberts and Jessica Meuse were in the dreaded Bottom Two.

Roberts was ultimately sent home when it was revealed he had received the lowest amount of votes following Wednesday’s performances. Judge Keith Urban seemed visibly shocked by the news, appearing to exclaim, “What?!” Unfortunately for Roberts, the judges had already used their lone save of the season, so the results meant instant, final elimination.

Like Urban, Roberts was a country singer. This week’s theme was “Competitor’s Choice,” in which each contestant had their song chosen by a competitor. C.J. Harris chose “Muckalee Creek Water” for Roberts, a match that apparently didn’t win over enough fans.

While obviously not the result Roberts wanted, he does get a consolation prize. He’ll get to join the Top 6 on the “American Idol” tour, along with fellow previously eliminated contestants, Malaya Watson, Majesty Rose, and MK Nobilette.

Check out the list of remaining contestants below. What do you think of tonight’s elimination?
