Top 8: Did America get it right?

** SPOILER ALERT: This entry will reveal the contestant leaving the show. Do not continue to read this entry of the blog if you do not want to know the results. **

Things are getting even tighter as the number continues to be whittled down.

With only seven contestants now, contestants are really going to have to shine if they want to stay.

Do you agree with Scott MacIntyre's ouster? Who do you think will be next?

Top 8: It's over

**SPOILER ALERT: This entry may reveal the contestant leaving the show. Do not continue reading if you do not want to know the results.**

Scott tried, but you just knew that he knew.

Scott McIntyre

He sang his swan song, and it was as bad as the night before.

Two judges wanted to save him and two wanted him to go, but they decide not to use their save on them.

I thought Paula was going to burst into tears.

You came a long way, Scott. Kudos to you!

Top 8: The one who doesn't have to worry is ...

It comes down to a 30,000 vote difference, and Anoop is saved.

Scott must sing for his chance to stay.

It doesn't look good people!

Top 8: The person who is safe is ...

Lil Rounds!

She gets to try again next week, and I hope she pulls it together because viewers are clearly getting tired of her lackluster performances.

Now Anoop looks worried.

Top 8: Kellie Pickler has one of the best days

If I were a contestant, I would feel pretty heartened after watching Kellie Pickler perform her song "Best Days of Your Life."

Kellie Pickler

I would think to myself: "Self, if she has a career, then surely there is hope for little ol' me."

She seems to be having a great time performing, so good for her.

Love her look.

Top 8: We have our bottom three

Danny Gokey stands, and he is safe!

So much for the theory that the first to perform gets shuttled off to the bottom three spot.

Matt Giraud also escapes the bottom three.

Next up is Scott MacIntyre, and he is in the bottom three.

It's down to Allison Iraheta and Lil Rounds, and Lil is the unlucky one.

So in the bottom three are Anoop, Scott and Lil. Anoop looks chill (hey, he's been here before). Lil looks sad, and Scott has his usual grin going on.

Simon says there is one the judges would definitely consider saving. Who can it be now?
