Finalist Eliminated on "American Idol"; Four Contestants Remain
02 May 2014
Four contestants now remain on the Fox singing competition "American Idol XIII."
Host Ryan Seacrest surprised the Top five finalists – Alex Preston, Jena Irene, Caleb Johnson, Sam Woolf and Jessica Meuse – on the May 1 broadcast of "Idol" with the option of either eliminating the lowest vote getter or rolling the vote over to next week, when two contestants would be eliminated.
In an anonymous vote, the finalists did not unanimously agree to delay the elimination until next week; therefore, Woolf was eliminated after receiving the least amount of votes. From Bradenton, FL, the 18-year-old sang “Sing” and “How to Save a Life” on the recent performance show.
The competition will continue May 7 at 8 PM ET when the final four take to the stage in the “Love: Break-ups and Make-ups”-themed performance show. One contestant will be eliminated during the May 8 broadcast.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
