Hollywood Week is always a tearjerker, and American Idol 2013 is no different.
 
Everyone has a favorite who goes home earlier than expected, and there are many contestants who have a strong emotional reaction when their journey is cut short. Below are the names of some of the more notable eliminated contenders we were rooting for throughout the audition process:
 
Matheus Fernandes
Nicholas Mathis
Papa Peachez
Micah Johnson
Gabe Brown
Sanni M’Mairura
Nate Tao
 
It’s sad to see these guys go, but there’s always next season!
