American Idol has its final four!

After Skylar Laine, Joshua Ledet, Hollie Cavanagh, Phillip Phillips and Jessica Sanchez each performed a song from the ’60s and another one from the British pop songbook, the top five faced another elimination on Thursday.

And all eyes were on Hollie Cavanagh, who’s been a regular in the bottom, but had two impressive performances with Tina Turner’s “River Deep-Mountain High” and Leona Lewis’s “Bleeding Love.”

So did she survive another week? Keep reading to find out …

Hollie was in the bottom two again but she was declared safe. The other contestant in the bottom two, Skylar Laine, was sent home in what can only be called a shocking night of results.

Skylar, 18, from Brandon, Miss., was the top 13’s only country singer and built momentum week after week with high-energy performances that nearly always pleased the judges. Jennifer Lopez, in particular, always admired her “attack.”

But Lopez also said that with such a talented top five, it’s a “toss-up” at this point in the competition.

And that will likely be the case next week, when the final four – Joshua, Jessica, Phillip and Hollie – take the stage again.
