Sad news for fans of finalist Ashthon Jones.
Jones was eliminated tonight on "American Idol" after she received the fewest of America’s votes. On Wednesday’s performance show, the Top 13 performed songs by their music idols, and Jones, 24, from Valdosta, GA, sang “When You Tell Me That You Love Me.”
Also, Casey Abrams was hospitalized.
According to reports, 20-year-old Casey, from Illinois, needed to medical treatment for a stress-induced bleeding stomach ulcer.
Abrams suffered a similar medical episode a few weeks ago just before the Top 24 contestants were revealed.
Idol Host Ryan Seacrest said that to the viewing audience that Casey was in the hospital and that he hoped he could ‘get back here soon’.
Tonight saw past Idol contestant Adam Lambert sing his latest hit, “Aftermath,” and Diddy-Dirty Money featuring Skylar Grey took the stage to perform “Coming Home.”
Also, the Judges’ Save returns this season. Like last year, up until only five finalists remain, the judges – if they unanimously agree – have the option to save from elimination the finalist receiving the lowest number of votes. The judges do not have to save a finalist during the competition.
However, if they choose to use the Judges’ Save, they may only do so once during the season. The following week, the two finalists receiving the lowest number of votes will be eliminated.
On Wednesday, March 16 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), the Top 12 (Casey Abrams, Naima Adedapo, Lauren Alaina, James Durbin, Stefano Langone, Jacob Lusk, Scotty McCreery, Paul McDonald, Thia Megia, Haley Reinhart, Karen Rodriguez and Pia Toscano) return to the stage to perform songs from the year they were born.
Tune in Thursday, March 17 (8:00-9:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), to the live results show to see performances by The Black Eyed Peas and IDOL Season Nine winner Lee DeWyze, as well as to find out who receives enough votes to stay in the competition and who is sent home.
