'American Idol': Shocking twist almost changes everything

'American Idol': Shocking Twist Almost Changes Everything

It was elimination night on "American Idol," but this time there was a shocking twist. Ryan explained that the 'Idol' contestants had two options: either the singer with the lowest amount of votes could go home, as usual, or no one would go home this week, but two people would go home the next week.

In order for no one to go home, the vote had to be unanimous, and it wasn't, which meant one contestant was eliminated.

RYAN: "Sam Woolf ... the rest of you are all safe and continue on in the competition."

The fan favorite had been saved a few weeks prior by the judges, but had some steep competition and failed to deliver a "wow" performance to keep himself safe.

Before the episode, BuddyTV predicted Sam's elimination -- and they were right.

"No matter what happens tonight, we all know Sam deserves to go home. And there's no way he can escape the bottom two this time, even if he doesn't go home. His voice sounded good during both performances, but the problem he keeps having is he never has a showstopping performance that just wows everyone."

But Hollywood Life was disappointed to see the remaining contestants opt to have someone sent home this week.

"We're sad to see Sam go! If you remember, he was eliminated from the top eight, earlier in the season, and was saved by the judges to get another chance. We wish his chance last even longer, but at this point in the competition, it's nothing but cutthroat."

I think the last 6 idols that were left were all amazing in their own unique way. all different!!. A this point we cant say who is better because, of the different style of music and voice they have. I would love to see these idols all go further in their carrers becuase, i enjoy what they bring on stage. As for YOU SAM WOOLF, your voice is so soothing, I can see sam become a successful artist. no worries sammi, you got this. See you at the top. good luck to all of you!!!

I want to see a contest between the contestants of the Voice and American Idol go head to head. I would bet the voice contestants would win

Yea, Sam should have went home alone time ago. Why the judges saved him before I will never know. Dexter was so much better and CJ.

I think it was wrong to put those kids in that position. Thats why they have judges.

The Voice is the better show with the better talent. That being said I think the rocker guy will win and one of the girls will be the runner up.

Sam was NOT star quality, every week, same old-same old, just stand there with the mic and sing, never connects with the viewers or audience. Back to the Sun Coast for you boy.

Sam should have went home along time ago. The judges wasted their save on him. Dexter should have been saved. CJ was a lot better than Sam too. American Idol is not good any more. This is my last year watching it. Go Voice.
