It was all in America’s hands last night as the audience chose songs for the final five contestants to sing and then ultimately vote for their favorites like usual. But a “shocking” twist almost changed everything.

WARNING! Spoilers ahead about tonight’s show!

Sam Woolf was voted off tonight, even though the contestants were given the option to keep the group together for one more week and have two people go home next week. 2 people voted against it and it needed to be unanimous. I wasn’t shocked by the twist really, but I was really surprised the final five didn’t stick together. I thought this was a friendly competition?!?!?

Full recap coming soon! UPDATE! It’s here.
