American Idol Eliminates Scott MacIntyre

at . Comments

Scott MacIntyre went farther on American Idol than any blind contestant in history.

But his run came to an end last night, as viewers voted the affable songwriter off the show.

In her most coherent statement in weeks, Paula Abdul told the singer:  “You’ve been an inspiration to the entire world through your commitment, through your talent. We love you.”

Not So Great Scott: MacIntyre receives the bad news.

Next week, the remaining seven finalists sing songs from movies,under the tutelage of guest mentor Quentin Tarantino. Seriously!

Also, Jennifer Hudson and Miley Cyrus are lined up for next Wednesday's elimination show.
