Update: Annie’s recap is live.

SPOILER ALERT: Those celebratory balloons just seem cruel now, don’t they? After a results show featuring another tribute to Dick Clark from Ryan Seacrest and performances by Kris Allen and LMFAO, the Top 7 became the Top 6. The singer headed home tonight…is…coming up, after the break!

Colton Dixon was eliminated. Whoa! Only two guys left.

Hollie Cavanagh and Elise Testone joined Colton in the bottom three.

Stay tuned for my full recap later on. Here it is!
