After giving it their all for 'Queen Night', American Idol's Top 6 left their fate in the hands of American voters. While each of the finalists received generally positive feedback from judges Randy Jackson, Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler, it's clear that they have their favorites - but who was yours?

Stay with Digital Spy live from 8/7c to find out whose dreams will be cut short and who will get another chance as part of the Top 5.


21:00Well, that's it for this week! Next week, the Top 5 hit the stage - it's getting down to the wire! Join us on Wednesday (May 2) at 8/7c for more!

21:00She's singing Led Zeppelin as her final song - nice choice. I do love Elise; she really grew on me this season and is super talented. Jennifer is really into the performance, too, dancing and singing behind the judges' table.

20:58Well, it's the moment of truth, and Elise is heading home. That means Hollie is safe. We sort of expected this, didn't we? I called it last night! The judges stand up for her as a reel of her best moments from the show is played. It's a shame - she's quite talented. However, she'll no doubt do something big now that she's had the exposure of the show. It's probably better for her that she didn't win, actually...

20:54Skylar lands in the bottom three - unfairly, I might add. Damn you, teenage girls, and your tendency to vote for "cute boys". Luckily, Skylar's not there for long, as Ryan sends her straight back to the couches just moments after. That means either Elise or Hollie will be headed home... after the ads, of course.

20:49The final two contestants to receive their results are Skylar Laine (y'all!) and Phillip Phillips - but who'll complete the bottom three?

20:41Time for Katy! She's doing 'Part of Me', which is a pretty great pop track. The stage production is intense, of course - lots of army girls/dancers. Love her!



20:37Ugh, no, of course not. Joshua's safe, Hollie heads to the bottom three. Sigh!

20:35Next to hear their results are Hollie Cavanagh and Joshua Ledet. God, I hope it's Joshua in the bottom, but it probably won't be. (Please, voters, surprise me!)

20:27Stefano Langone is on stage now and... for some reason, I didn't picture him doing pop/techno music. Do people listen to this? Is this getting radio play? He's 'on a roll' - I'm guessing that's what the song is called, no? After a quick Google search, I can confirm: 'I'm On a Roll'.

20:25Ryan reveals that the American Idol tour will kick off July 6 in Detroit, in case you're interested. Tickets go on sale for some dates on Friday. However, I nearly missed that announcement as Casey Abrams is back and looks more like a homeless mountain man than ever before. I do love him, though.

20:20Anyway, time for some live results - it's Jessica Sanchez and Elise Testone who will find out their results first. Unsurprisingly, Jessica is safe, while Elise lands in the bottom three. We all expected that, right?

> Coldplay to perform on 'American Idol'

20:15One of the TMZ reporters confronts Joshua Ledet with the fact that there's a male strip club in New York called Mantasia (referencing his love of Fantasia Barrino). LOL to that - though Joshua loses even more favor in my book by having zero sense of humor and looking really put off by it. No further comment. Skylar Laine also gets pulled on her rumored relationship with Colton Dixon, which cracks her up.

20:13It's the portion of the show you've all been waiting for - the Ford music video! This week, origami animals come to life in a magic themed clip that, as per usual, makes no sense. Phillip looks more lifeless than usual and the rest of them look like they'd rather be anywhere else, as well. Luckily, it's over soon after it starts.

But that's not all - the finalists went over to TMZ to learn how to deal with the press. I love Harvey Levin, I must say - even though I don't like TMZ.

20:06Oh right, the Queen Extravaganza is that competition they put on to find "the next Freddie Mercury", so to speak. That's right. I'm with you now. Still don't much care for it, but I do respect the band's contribution to music, etc, etc.

20:05Oddly, there's a performance of 'Somebody to Love' by The Queen Extravaganza. Is that a thing? Am I living in a cave? I know I must sound so ignorant re: my Queen comments, they're just... not for me. I also think the Beatles are overrated - so what, shoot me. (Don't shoot me.)

20:03Tonight, not only is Katy Perry performing, but also Stefano Langone. You probably don't remember or care about Stefano, but that's okay. Yay, Katy!

20:00Here we go! It's getting down to the wire. Any guesses on who's going? My money is on Elise or Hollie - probably the former, which is a shame.
