American Idol 2014: Who Went Home From the Top 13 — February 27, 2014
No surprise here but tonight was a hard episode of American Idol to watch. We've spent nearly two months with these kids, watching them push through auditions, Hollywood Week, and, most recently, the rough round known as Rush Week. To say goodbye to one so soon after they've all finally made the big stage seems kinda cruel in a way.
But this is American Idol and only one singer reigns supreme. Or, as Ryan puts it, "It's happy times now" before he checks us back into reality by reminding us that tonight is indeed an elimination episode. This is why Ryan's the host and we, we're just faithful viewers.
So who went home? All in good time, all in good time. Idol didn't reveal who did and didn't make the Top 12 until the very end of the show. Darn you, American Idol!
As we waited for the big reveal, we got to see the contestants pledge friendship forever over food and drink, a great performance by last year's winner, Candice Glover, and even a number by English artist Jake Bugg.
