As featured at Fox on Thursday night, DeAndre was voted out from the show which now brings down to the remaining American Idol 2012 Top 7 finalists, who will continue to compete with each other next week.

On the first part of the show, host Ryan Seacrest called Jessica Sanchez and Joshua Ledet, who had a duet last Wednesday night and sang “I Knew You Were Waiting (For Me)” by Aretha Franklin and George Michael. Both were announced safe, which fans notably expected.

Jimmy Iovine noted that Joshua dominated the show for his superb rendition of “If You Don’t Know Me By Now”. Jessica, who sang Whitney Houston’s “How Will I Know” was also praised but Jimmy stressed out that she did not pick the right song that night.

After British pop group The Wanted performed on stage, Skylar Laine, Colton Dixon, Hollie Cavanagh and DeAndre Brackensick were called on stage, with Skylar and Colton announced as safe; while Hollie and DeAndre landed in the ‘Bottom Three’.

Moments later, Seacrest called Phillip Phillips and Elise Testone and announced that Phillip is ‘safe’ and that Elise will be completing the ‘Bottom Three’, but was soon announced ‘safe’ along with Hollie; with DeAndre left and was not able to convince the judges to save him despite performing again.
