Sam Woolf was eliminated on the May 1 episode of ‘American Idol’, but not before a bizarre twist which almost kept him on the show. HollywoodLife.com caught up with Sam after his elimination, and he told us that he has no hard feelings about his elimination — but that he didn’t like how it went down, and nor did the other ‘Idols’!
It was bound to happen eventually. Sam Woolf was eliminated on the May 1 episode of American Idol. In a strange, unnecessary twist, Ryan Seacrest gave the remaining 5 contestants ballots to vote for the option of keeping everybody on the show for one more week and eliminating two the following week, or to eliminate one that night — as has been the case each night previously. The Idol hopefuls chose to eliminate one that night, which turned out to be Sam. HollywoodLife.com spoke to Sam after the show and while Sam doesn’t have any hard feelings about his elimination, he wasn’t thrilled with how it went down — and nor were the other contestants!

Now that Sam Woolf is officially 18 years old, he melted hearts more than ever on the April 23 episode of ‘American Idol’ with his performance of Shania Twain’s ‘You’re Still The One’. However, HollywoodLife.com spoke to Sam after the show and he told us that he’s not so sure about that “Heartthrob” label!
The incredibly shy Sam Woolf has been given the heartthrob label ever since his tenure began on American Idol, but he’s never seemed to revel in the attention as some other boys his age might! Well, this was basically confirmed for us when we caught up with Sam after the April 23 show where he told us all about how he feels about the “heartthrob” label!
On the April 3 episode of ‘American Idol,’ Sam Woolf was saved from elimination by the judges after America’s vote landed him in the bottom. However, I’m not so sure that he deserved the coveted, once-a-season save — especially not so soon into the finals!
Before a pack of tweens come at me with pitchforks, let me explain: it’s not that I think that Sam Woolf, 17, isn’t talented, nor do I think that he doesn’t deserve to still be in the competition. However, I really don’t think that the judges should have used their one-time-only save on a contestant like Sam, whose performances have often been inconsistent. Furthermore, we’re only in the Top 8! The judges are sure to regret using their save so soon. Do you agree?
On the April 3 ‘American Idol’ results show, the Top 8 remained untouched from elimination because the judges used their save! Whoa!

Click to watch and to find out what else she had to say!
On the April 2 episode of American Idol, viewers got a surprise treat in the form of duets from our Top 8. They were all pretty great, but Malaya Watson and Sam Woolf‘s performance of “Lucky” was one of our faves. Not only were the vocals on point, but Malaya worked that stage like the diva she was, giving Sam flirty eyes and circling around him. Hilariously, Malaya told HollywoodLife.com after the show that she felt “the evil eye” that all of the girls in the studio audience were giving her. She’s the best.

On the March 26 episode of ‘American Idol,’ the Top 9 performed for your votes! The theme was ‘I’m With The Band,’ where they sang songs from rock royalty — also, Plain White T’s.
American Idol is now in its Top 9, and the theme for the March 26 episode is “I’m With The Band,” where the contestants covered songs from “rock royalty” — also, Plain White T’s and Evanescence. There were a lot of great performances, but Sam Woolf definitely melted some hearts with his rendition of every girl’s favorite acoustic jam that they like to think is about them — “Hey There Delilah!”
On the Feb. 27 results show on ‘American Idol,’ we learn that Americans cast 71 million votes and now one of the Top 13 — soon to be Top 12 — has to go home! Also, Randy Jackson displays a pretty confusing mentoring style.
The Feb. 26 performances were a bit of a debacle, so we weren’t too sure what to expect with this results show. For example, Malaya Watson has been a favorite so far but her performance last night was not up to her usual gold standard. If Malaya gets voted out, we’re going to need to have a talk with America. Also, we thought that Randy Jackson kind of threw Malaya — and the other Idol hopefuls who didn’t fare so well — under the bus! Rude. See below for who didn’t make it to the Top 12 and tell us if you agree with America’s choice!
The Feb. 26 episode of ‘American Idol’ finally takes us to the LIVE finals with our Top 13 where America has the vote! Are you excited?!

See below for our full recap and to tell us who YOUR favorites were!
