Who was eliminated on tonight’s episode of American Idol? Tyanna Jones was the contestant sent home halfway through the show, leaving the Top 5. As part of her send-off, Jones decided to sing a Beyonce song. It was down to Jones and Rayvon Owen, but Owen had more votes. Jones handled the news with poise and only got emotional when the farewell video played of her time of the show.
On tonight’s show, Martina McBride was one of the mentors, along with Rascal Flatts’ Jay DeMarcus, and judge Harry Connick Jr. took the stage as a performer, as did McBride. What was really cool was the contestants got to meet former Idol judge and Aerosmith super star Steven Tyler. Upon meeting Jax, Tyler asked to sing with her in the finale episode.
As for tonight’s performances, each contestant performed two songs, with the exception of Jones, and the theme of the night was hometown and soul songs.
