The final 10 became 9 last night on American Idol and it was bad news for top ten finalist Erica Van Pelt.

he mobile DJ got the boot last night and just after she got her new makeover!  Erica shed some tears when the judges decided not to use their save to keep her around, but this elimination was foreshadowed by the fact that Erica has spent the past four weeks in the bottom three.  Erica is staying positive and looking towards the future. She proclaimed that Randy opened her eyes and inspired her by saying: “You’re only one hit away from making it big.” The 26-year-old was one of the older contestants on Idol this season, and we wish her the best in the future.

Both Lana Del Rey and Haley Reinhart performed on last night’s episode. Lana performed her song “Video Games” in a girly white mini-dress and casual flats. The indie-pop sensation performed well, despite the negative buzz about her infamous performance on SNL.

Before the elimination, Haley Reinhart performed her new single “Free,” in a giant birdcage! Haley wore a long red gown, and sported a hair clip that almost out-shined one of Randy’s controversial clips! Her performance was upbeat and entertaining. It was great seeing this talent return to the Idol stage.

American Idol’s resident vocal coach channeled his inner Simon Cowell with his advice for the contestants last night. Jimmy told Hollie Cavanagh that she was “a sweet diva caught in the headlights,” and told DeAndre Brackensick, “too much frolicking and bopping around.”  His comments didn’t stop there either; Joshua Ledet needs to be careful of his “Darth Vader thing” when he sings too low, while lastly stating that Heejun Han’s antics are like “a bad Adam Sandler movie.”
