Lazaro Arbos, who sang “In My Life,” didn’t win the judges over. Randy Jackson thought he gave a pitchy performance, bit fans ignored the criticism and moved in along into the Top 8. Similarly, Paul Jolley got some flack for his version of “Eleanor Rigby,” which Nicki Minaj considered to be a bland and safe choice for the singer.
Unfortunately, the fans weren’t bowled over by the performance either, and he received the fewest votes in the Top 9.
Do you think Paul should have gone home, or should he have stuck around for another week on American Idol? Let us know by using the reaction buttons below!
