American Idol Finally Cuts the Dead Weight

The judges' reactions were priceless!

Sorry, tweenage girls! Your prepubescent boy toy is gone.

Daniel took his final bow on Wednesday's American Idolafter a lackluster rendition of Kelly Clarkson's "Breakaway" that inspired no one to try out the new Twitter fan save and left the judges struggling for compliments.

What songs does American Idol need to retire?

"That's a super hard song. All of Kelly's songs are super challenging. I think you did an OK job with it. You did as good as you could do with it with everything that's going on," Jennifer Lopez said.

"Just keep practicing, man," Harry Connick Jr. added.

"You look great on camera, so you have a lot going for you," Keith Urban said.
