Finalist Megan Joy was eliminated tonight from AMERICAN IDOL after she received the fewest of America’s more than 36 million votes. On Wednesday’s show, finalists performed Top Downloaded songs, and Joy, 23, from Sandy, UT, sang “Turn Your Lights Down Low” by Bob Marley.
Next week, the Top 8 finalists – Kris Allen, Anoop Desai, Matt Giraud, Danny Gokey, Allison Iraheta, Adam Lambert, Scott MacIntyre and Lil Rounds – take the stage Tuesday, April 7 (8:00-9:01 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) to perform songs from the year they were born.
Tune in the following night Wednesday, April 8 (9:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) to find out if the judges use their save or if America sends another finalist home. Also, Season Five finalist Kellie Pickler returns to the IDOL stage to perform her new single, “Best Days of Your Life.”
