American Idol Cuts Fan Favorite; Field Down to Six

at . Comments

American Idol bid farewell to a performer last night that:

  1. Has been a fan favorite since the start
  2. Has been in the bottom three already
  3. Has been on borrowed time for weeks

As American Idol results shows go, this was not a big surprise. The bottom three were more or less predictable, as was the one aspirant sent home Thursday.

So who's out? Haley Reinhart, Jacob Lusk or Stefano Langone?

It was a good run, but Stefano Langone has reached the end of the road.

The wild-card finalist from Kent, Wash., was probably lucky to make it this far, and harbors no hard feelings about his ouster from the competition.

Asked by Ryan Seacrest how Idol had changed his life, Stefano replied: "It started my career, man. That's something you can't put a price on."

"That's everything. I'm so blessed. I came this far. It's great; it really is."

What do you think? Did America make the right call this week? Did Stefano deserve to go, or would you have preferred he stick around longer?
