On the American Idol results show tonight, the voters weigh in on which contestants deserve the chance to sing again next week as part of the Top 9 finalists. Who got voted off American Idol 2013 tonight and will face the long journey home? Dive in to our full American Idol recap of the elimination results show here, or just keep reading to find out who was kicked off the show by the voters this week!


In our prediction for who would end up in last place this week, we chose Paul Jolley as the most likely person to get the boot. He wasn’t the worst singer on American Idol last night, but he was the most boring.


The prize for the worst performance last night actually went to poor Lazaro Arbos, who was ripped up by the judges so badly, he started leaking tears on stage. Not because they hurt his feelings, however. Lazaro said he just felt incredibly upset that he disappointed his supporters so badly. Our readers thought it should be Lazaro who went home on American Idol Season 12 from the Top 9, not Paul Jolley — although they did list him as their second choice for elimination.


So which American Idol 2013 Top 9 contestant was voted off the show this week? Here’s the breakdown from the voters from tonight’s show:


Safe: Angie Miller, Candice Glover, Lazaro Arbos, Burnell Taylor, Janelle Arthur, and Kree Harrison


Bottom 3: Paul Jolley, Devin Velez, and Amber Holcomb


Who was eliminated on American Idol tonight: Paul Jolley
