American Idol’s remaining eight finalists took on some of Queen’s greatest hits last night, and by the end of the night, only six were left vying for the throne.
Helping to mentor and prepare the Top 8 to rock the stage was American Idol alumnus and Grammy-nominated artist Adam Lambert. In addition, each of the finalists partnered up for classic movie duet performances.
After America’s vote, the contestants marked as safe were Jeremiah Lloyd Harmon, Laci Kaye Booth, Madison VanDenburg, Laine Hardy, Alejandro Aranda and Wade Cota, leaving Walker Burroughs and Alyssa Raghu in jeopardy. Sadly, the judges chose not to save either of them, sending both Burroughs and Raghu home.
