Sad news, Idol fans. Paul McDonald has been booted from the competition and we must now usher in a darker, drearier, less bedazzled era of American Idol. If you need a moment to collect yourself, we understand.
It was love at first sight for us when Paul McDonald and his pearly whites stepped into the Nashville Auditions. Since then Paul has danced and rasped his way into our hearts. Relive some of his best performances and heave a little sigh with us, will ya? We'll miss his epileptic dancing and flippin' rose suits.
P.S. Don't feel too bad for Paul. He's still got Twilight vixen Nikki Reed to keep him warm — nice going, bro!
