Who Got Voted Off ‘American Idol’ Tonight?

Tonight, the top 6 contestants on American Idol 2016 faced elimination. Trent Harmon, Dalton Rappatoni, La’Porsha Renae and MacKenzie Bourg were put through to the top 5 after each of their first performances, leaving Sonika Vaid and Tristan McIntosh in the bottom two. Each contestant performed a song chosen by American for their first set. Vaid and McIntosh had to sing for the last “save” of the season from the judges, but one girl had to say goodbye … And the performer eliminated tonight was … Tristan McIntosh.

While McIntosh received mixed reviews from the judges, the judges just fell in love with Vaid’s performance. They felt she was making a real statement that she wasn’t ready to go home yet.

This was the second time the judges saved Sonika Vaid from elimination.

The judges are extremely inconsistent. They criticize one performer (Tristan) for falling into one category (country music) but when Dalton continues singing “dark” songs and MacKenzie can’t sing anything upbeat, it’s OK. Very inconsistent. Leave the judges out of it. This last season seems to be governed by the judges and not what the “American” public wants.


Why would they save her a second time? Obviously, America doesn’t like her much, and she’ll just get voted out next. They should have kept Lee last week.
