American Idol is down to its Top 7.
The judges may have used their save on Sam last week, but this week, one person actually did go home. Was Sam able to redeem himself with his take on "Time After Time"? Or were his efforts to connect with his fans all for naught? Skip to the bottom for the results.
American Idol performance recap: Livin' in the '80s
In keeping with the totally '80s theme this week, we get treated to throwback Thursday pics of the judges from that decade. Apparently, there is such a thing as a belt buckle shaped like Australia! Thanks for that, Keith.
And here are the results:
Well, Sam gets another week to work on emoting. Good for him. Malaya has fallen to the bottom several times, so the writing may be on the Idol wall for her.
And yep, the teenaged tuba player, who's rocking a Cosby-esque sweater, is going home. She actually delivers a relatively composed swan song until her fellow contestants share the stage with her. Malaya was such a quirk-monster but has tons of potential. We feel this isn't the last we'll see of her.
Will you miss Malaya? Did the right singer go home?
American Idol airs Wednesdays at 8/7c and Thursdays at 9/8c.
