American Idol Shocker, Part II: Carly Smithson Eliminated!

by at . Comments

After Michael Johns was eliminated from American Idol a few weeks ago, we figured we couldn't be surprised again by any results.

Consider us mistaken.

Carly Smithson was voted off the show last night, despite the fact that fellow finalist Brooke White flat out forgot the lyrics to her song the evening before. Smithson was joined in the bottom two by Syesha Mercado.

Hugging it Out

We've been huge fans of White all season, but come on. She deserved to go. You simply cannot make the sort of blunder she did on such a big stage.

Moreover, Smithson's rendition of "Jesus Christ Superstar" on Tuesday night was lively and well done.

What do you think? Who deserved to go home this week on American Idol?
