Let’s hear it for the girls! The ladies have dominated this season but unfortunately, someone had to end up in the bottom on the April 18 results show — do you agree with the results?

The top five girls fought for survival as Nicki Minaj, Mariah Carey, Keith Urban and Randy Jackson offered their critiques. On the April 18 results show, did your favorite end up in the bottom?

On April 17, the girls sang two songs each. One from their birth year and one by a diva. I thought Angie did the best and that Janelle was in danger.

‘American Idol’ Results — Who Goes Home?

The results show started with the top five ladies singing a Donna Summer medley. It really seemed like Janelle was the weak link in the group. I personally thought Amber and Candice shined.

Now, the results.

First up, Angie. Mentor Jimmy Iovine said she was believable on the piano but that her performance of “Halo” would hurt her overall. Angie was later announced as safe.

Candice made Mariah cry as she sang one of her songs. Jimmy said he didn’t like her “narrow” performance of “Straight Up” but she redeemed herself with “When You Believe.” Then, Paula Abdul made a surprise appearance and told Candice she was a huge fan! She was the first to be named safe.

Season two runner-up Clay Aiken sang “Bridge Over Troubled Water.” Later, season three winner Fantasia sang her song “Lose To Win.”

Jimmy commented that Janelle‘s two performances were a strike out. But Janelle felt better after she got a letter from Dolly Parton!

Jimmy said Amber was very brave to sing Mariah Carey and Barbra Streisand songs. Mariah said she should be higher than the top two! She was safe!

Jimmy thought Kree picked the wrong songs.

Kree and Janelle were in the bottom two. Janelle was in the bottom and sang for survival. About 60 percent of fans on Twitter thought the judges should save her.

Unfortunately, it was not unanimous.

Are you upset that Janelle went home tonight, HollywoodLifers? Tell us below.
