Video: Which Contestant Was Eliminated on 'American Idol'?
By AOL TV Editors Posted May 6th 2011 01:30AM
Haley Reinhart had a shaky start, according to the judges, with an unreleased Lady Gaga song. But she closed the show with an amazing take of 'The House of the Rising Sun.' Scotty opened strong with 'Gone,' but wasn't as strong on his second number.
James lost himself in the emotions a bit in his second number, which could have hurt or helped him with viewers. Lauren held back a bit on 'Unchained Melody' while Jacob floundered a lot on 'No Air.' It's one of the strongest Top Five's in recent memory, so it was anyone's week to lose.
After putting James and Lauren through an emotional roller coaster throughout the episode, it was finally revealed that Jacob and Lauren were in the Bottom Two. Lauren had tears streaming down her face, and still Ryan Seacrest forced her through another commercial break.
Afterward, he put her out of her misery by sending her to safety. Jacob Lusk was eliminated, which seemed appropriate. He's been having a harder time reigning his vocals into the songs he's been choosing, and he had two uncomfortable performances this week.
