Update: Annie’s recap is live.
SPOILER ALERT: One of these 10 lost souls will NOT get to move into the American Idol mansion. “It’s a cool mansion!” said Ryan Seacrest. “All mansions are cool.” You would know, Ryan! After a results show featuring taped performances of Lana Del Rey nearly weeping and season 10’s Haley Reinhart being a total badass bitch, tonight’s eliminated contestant is….
Erika Van Pelt.
Heejun Han and DeAndre Brackensick joined Erika in the bottom three.
Read what Erika told EW after her elimination — about her vocal limitations, those party favors, and Idol‘s “women of a certain age” problem — here.
