'American Idol' Top Five Results: Which Contestant Was Eliminated? (VIDEO)

Top Five Elimination, 'American Idol'It's down to the wire now on 'American Idol' (Thu., 8PM ET on FOX). With only five contestants left, each of them had two solo performances last night. For most of them, this proved to be a blessing as they were able to nail at least one of their songs.

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 on '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 song, 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.' With so many hits and misses, it was anyone's week to lose.

'American Idol' airs Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8PM ET on FOX.


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 reining his vocals into the songs he's been choosing, and he had two uncomfortable performances this week.

Do you think the right person went home?

You Morons would not know talent if it walked up to you and slapped you in the face with both hands!! Jason (ALONG WITH JENNIFER HUDSON) was probaby the BEST SINGER ever to be on the stage in this sorry A$$ show's history! That is why I stopped watching this canned BS a long time ago. The only reason why I watched some shows this season was because of Jason......and I knew that he would be eliminated for the lesser talent. That is this shows formula. I will be so glad when this BS show gets CANCELED!!

Yes the right choice was made by sending Jacob home. I personally do not know how he has made it this far. To me it seems like he needs to clear his throat every time he sings. And OMG that LV song was horrible.

lauren needs to go --she is a clone--but they will have to have someone to catch her when they do send her home--she took it pretty bad just being on the bottom--scotty or james will win--scotty has won the total votes every week.there are millions of girls that sing just like lauren
