'Idol' Shocker: Scotty McCreery In The Bottom For The 1st Time & Jacob Lusk Is Safe!

We were surprised to see Haley Reinhart and Jacob Lusk safe from elimination April 28, but our favorite jazz singer wasn’t as lucky!

And then there were five. Slowly, but surely, American Idol is whittling away its contestants — and it’s anyone’s guess who will take home the prize! Most HollywoodLife.com readers expected Jacob Lusk to get the boot April 28, but that wasn’t the case at all.

Casey Abrams and Scotty McCreery were in the bottom two, and it was Casey who was sent home. The 20-year-old soulful jazz singer was originally voted off March 24, but the judges used their one save of the season to keep him around.

This was Scotty’s first week in the bottom, leaving Lauren Alaina and James Durbin the only two contestants who’ve never been on the chopping block.

With only five contestants remaining, who do YOU think will win season 10 of American Idol? Sound off below!
