Last night, American Idol took an axe to its cast, whacking half the contestants off the show.
But not without some fireworks!
Jimmy Iovine from Interscope came to the show and gave some really harsh criticism. The judges came to the rescue of the contestants, though they admitted they were a bit too easy on the boys.
J Lo even admitted she wanted to punch Jimmy!
But once the dust settled, America voted in their top 10, which seemed like an easy decision. The top 10 singers voted to sing next week include:
Phillip Phillips, Heejun Han, Joshua Ledet, Colton Dixon, Jermaine Jones, Hollie Cavanagh, Skylar Laine, Jessica Sanchez, Shannon Magrane and Elise Testone.
Next, Jen Hirsh, Jeremy Rosado, Brielle Von Hugel, Deandre Brackensick, Erika Van Pelt and Reed Grimm all got a chance to redeem themselves while we had to say goodbye to the other nine hopefuls who didn't make it.
In the end, Erika, Jeremy, and Deandre were spared the walk of shame and completed the Top 13.
Congrats everyone! We'll see who survives next week!
