The lucky seven are no more.

American Idol is zero degrees from Kevin Bacon after The Following star commandeered Ryan Seacrest's intro Thursday night for its result show. Awesome. But more importantly, one singer saw his or her dreams dashed. Skip to the bottom to get the results. In the meantime, here are highlights of the inane results show:

Bottom 2


Hmm, we didn't see that coming. We don't want Jena to be the last girl left, so we're hoping that Dexter is the one going home. And after a Ford Escape commercial ... yes, Dexter is going home. So long, 'bama boy! In a way, he and CJ canceled each other out.

Oh, and incidentally, next week's theme is "A little bit country, a little bit rock 'n' roll," in which the remaining contestants sing two songs, one in each genre. This is actually when we'd love to hear Alex and Sam duet -- but in the Donnie and Marie roles.

Did the right singer go home? Who do you think will do the best in both genres next week?

American Idol airs Wednesdays at 8/7c and Thursdays at 9/8c on Fox.
