Top 8 Results Night
April 14, 2011 (Apr 15 MLA Time)
Paul McDonald is the latest eliminated finalist on American Idol Season 10.
From Top 8, they're now down to just 7 (5 males, 2 females).
After 5 consecutive female finalits, Paul McDonald is the first male finalist to be eliminated since the Final Top 13 eliminations.
This week's theme was "Songs from the Movies" and McDonald performed "Old Time Rock and Roll", a song from the movie Risky Business, but America's voters didn't like it as he got the lowest number of votes.
Here's the list of their song choices this week:
1. Paul McDonald "Old Time Rock and Roll" from the movie Risky Business
2. Lauren Alaina "The Climb" - Hannah Montana: The Movie
3. Stefano Langone "End of the Road" - Boomerang
4. Scotty McCreery "I Cross My Heart" - Pure Country
5. Casey Abrams "Nature Boy" - The Boy with Green Hair
6. Haley Reinhart "Call Me" - American Gigolo
7. Jacob Lusk "Bridge over Troubled Water" - The Pursuit of Happyness
8. James Durbin "Heavy Metal" - Heavy Metal
Also called in the Bottom 3 along with Paul were Hailey Reinhart and Stefano Langone, who were on their 3rd time already to be part of the Bottom 3.
It's amazing how Hailey managed to reach this far. She almost went home during the first 2 eliminations, but here she is now surviving 'til the end.
The other remaining 'Idol' finalists are Casey Abrams, Jacob Lusk, James Durbin, Lauren Alaina and Scotty McCreery.
So far, only James, Lauren and Scotty are the ones who haven't been called as one of the Bottom 3 finalists.
Next week, the remaining Top 7 finalists will sing song from the 21st Century.
Here's Mykiru's new ranking for the remaining Top 7 finalists:
