“American Idol” booted yet another hopeful from the group of contestants participating. Host Ryan Seacrest said that 52 million votes were recorded, but ultimately, that was not enough for Stefano Langone who was sent packing.
This was no new routine for Langone, who’s had his fair share of trips to the bottom 3. This time around Stefano shared those seats with Jacob Lusk and Haley Reinhart.
Langone said that “Idol” was a priceless experience for him and then he sang his farewell song, “Lately.”
Guest stars of the episode included season seven winner, David Cook, who sang his new single “The Last Goodbye” and Katy Perry, dressed as an alien to perform her hit “E.T.” along with Kanye West.
“American Idol” returns next Wednesday with the contestants tackling the songs of Carole King, while Bruno Mars and season 9 runner-up Crystal Bowersox will perform on the elimination episode Thursday.
