American Idol 2012 Top 10 Results: Jessica Sanchez is safe, Erika Van Pelt eliminated!

American Idol 2012's Top 10 Results Night held Thursday, March 22 (March 23 morning in Manila) had finalist Erika Van Pelt being eliminated from the competition.

26-year-old wedding singer and mobile DJ company owner Erika Van Pelt, who was a wild card finalist, decided to have an extreme make-over, from blonde to black hair, for her performance this week, but unfortunately, it didn't matter to American Idol viewers and she was still voted off.

She was given a chance to perform again in order to convince the 3 judges to save her from being eliminated, but the judges opted not to use their one-time-only "power to save".

Joining Erika in the bottom 3 this week were Heejun Han and the remaining wild card pick DeAndre Brackensick.

It was Erika's 3rd time to be part of the Bottom 3 while it was the first time for both Heejun and DeAndre.

Erika and DeAndre were among the 3 wild card contestants, picked by the judges to join the Top 13 finalists. The other wild card finalist, Jeremy Rosado, was already eliminated 3 weeks ago.

Pinoy-Mexican pride Jessica Sanchez is very much alive in the competition as she enters Top 9 and still remains as a strong contender to be the American Idol 2012 winner.

The other remaining finalists are Phillip Phillips, Hollie Cavanagh, Joshua Ledet, Skylar Laine, Elise Testone and Colton Dixon.
