'American Idol' Result: Paul McDonald, the First Man Eliminated This Season

On April 14, the 26-year-old Alabama native followed in the footsteps of Karen Rodriguez, Thia Megia, Pia Toscano and some other girls.

The male gang of "American Idol" season 10 has just lost one of its members. After five girls from the top 13 were sent home, Paul McDonald became the first guy eliminated from the show as the finalists were shrunk down to 7 on Thursday, April 14.

Paul was in the bottom three with Haley Reinhart and Stefano Langone. Rihanna took the stage for a performance before the final result was announced. When Ryan Seacrest came back, he gave the bad news to Paul. As his last performance on the stage he delivered "Maggie Mae" which he sang when auditioning in Nashville, Tennessee.

Opening the Wednesday performance show with "Old Time Rock and Roll", Paul actually did well as Steven Tyler praised his "crazy, wild abandon." Jennifer Lopez added, "It's just so great to watch...Good job."

The Thursday result show also saw Kelly Clarkson returning to "American Idol" as a musical guest, sharing stage with Jason Aldean.

    I hate people being bitter with stefano staying while their pia/paul was booted. Please be reminded you're the ones voting If pia/paul was gone it was definitely not Stafanos fault. I feel sorry fr the guy, Makes me want to root for him. You keep on downsizing him and elevating the eliminated ones! When the votes has already been casted. If the pia/paul was eliminated it was their fans fault not stefano so blame ur selves and quit on picking on stefano
