And then there were 10 ...
American Idol bid farewell to another finalist Wednesday night after the previous evening's Top 11 performances certainly gave voters plenty of candidates to send packing.
With a few exceptions, the finalists' efforts on Tuesday were mediocre at best, and Paige Miles' was deemed the most mediocre of them all after singing "Against All Odds."
Odds were pretty good she'd be kicked off, and she was.
Tim Urban's "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" landed him in the bottom three with Paige for the second straight week. One of these weeks really soon, he's got to go as well.
Joining them was Katie Stevens after a less than impressive "Big Girls Don't Cry." But she skated through, along with Tim and the other eight. Who really shined this week?
As usual, Crystal Bowersox. It looks like there's Crystal and there's everyone else, although Lee DeWyze, Siobhan Magnus and "Big Mike" Lynche certainly aren't slouches.
Paige Miles leaves American Idol with an 11th-place finish.
