Following last week's save of Matt Giraud, American Idol eliminated a pair of contestants this week.
Viewers weren't shocked when Anoop Desai and Lil Rounds were sent home, though we were dismayed that Allison Iraheta was included in the bottom three.
Anoop, however, simply didn't have the talent to match the remaining finalists; while Rounds could hit any note, yet lacked any sort of creativity on stage. We wish them each the best of luck.
