11 Idol contestants standing in a row, votes get tallied and Shannon has to go!
The remaining competitors are winners in a certain sense - regardless of their future on the show, they'll make $$$ and get professional stage-time from the nationwide American Idol tour.
The AI finalists are as follows: Joshua Ledet, Phillip Phillips, Skylar Laine, Jessica Sanchez, Colton Dixon, DeAndre Brackensick, Hollie Cavanagh, Heejun Han, with Elise Testone and Erika Van Pelt barely escaping the chopping block.
Who do U want to see win AI??? And do U think it'll last another season??
