'American Idol' Top Three Revealed: Who Was Eliminated? (VIDEO)

Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson, 'American Idol'Top Four has been an odd time in 'American Idol' (Thu., 8PM ET on FOX) history. As Ryan Seacrest pointed out at the close of the performance episode, it was at this point in the competition that Chris Daughtry was eliminated back in Season 5.

Other fourth-place finishers include Tamyra Gray, Josh Gracin, LaToya London, Jason Castro and Allison Iraheta, so it doesn't mean the end of the road. Sure, only Daughtry came out of it with a monster career so far, but many of these people have been able to go on and make music their career in some way.

Girls were the first five eliminated, but since then Lauren and Haley have outlasted four guys in a row. Could they continue their streak and send Scotty or James home, or would the boys make a comeback. It's such a tight field this season, it was difficult to predict what might happen.


Lauren was the first sent to safety, leaving Haley to sweat it out next to the boys who've never even seen the Bottom Two or Three. Haley's been there four times.

But then Ryan Seacrest declared that there would be two girls in the Top Three, sending Haley to safety and America torn. Are we to lose the metal rocker or the country prodigy?

It turns out being young and adorable still holds some weight, along with his almost flawless country vocals. Scotty made it in there and America had to say goodbye to James Durbin.

"I did so much stuff that's never been done on this show before," he said of his metal and hard rock stage performances. Truly, James left his mark on 'American Idol.' Now, he can move on to leave his mark on the music industry.

Maybe he'll found a band and name it his last name and we'll all watch as Durbin shoots to the top of the charts.

Were you surprised by this result? Who do you think will win 'Idol'?
