American Idol Contestants Cut, Alaina Whitaker Distraught

by at . Comments

American Idol sent four more semifinalists home last night, with one booted contestant taking the news harder than most.

Robbie Carrico and Jason Yeager were eliminated from the men's side; neither were really a surprise, as Yeager never stood out for any reason and viewers didn't buy into Carrico's attempt to look and sound like a hardcore rocker.

For the women, Alex Lushington was voted off after a considerably lackluster performance on Wednesday night. Joining her in packing up her things was Alaina Whitaker, who broke down in tears upon hearing her name called.

"Sorry, this is so embarrassing," she told host Ryan Seacrest, who consoled her with a hug, as fellow Idols comforted their fallen comrade.

Idol Comfort

Alaina Whitaker received bad news on American Idol last night. But the news has been nothing but positive so far for Brooke White, Carly Smithson, David Archuleta and others.
