After an unprecedented five standing ovations last night, it was hard to say goodbye to any of the top nine performers on ‘American Idol’ March 29!
It was anyone’s guess who would be going home tonight on American Idol, and even though he had a flawless performance, I was pretty sure it was going to be Deandre Brackensick. But boy, was I wrong…he wasn’t even in the bottom three!
Instead, our bottom three were BFFs — Hollie Cavanagh and Skylar Laine — and the charming Heejun Han. Sadly, I think what was perceived as Heejun’s bad attitude last week when he didn’t perform well was his kiss of death.
Despite a strong performance of Donny Hathaway‘s “A Song for You” last night, Heejun was sent packing. I’ve said this before, but it’s become increasingly difficult to critique these performers after I’ve gotten to know them personally week in and week out. Did I think Heejun would win the whole competition? No, not really. However, I’m still sad to see him go.
What did you think of tonight’s elimination? Who is your favorite right now to win? Sound off below!
