Janelle Arthur has become the first girl to be eliminated from the Top 10 of "American Idol" season 12. The 23-year-old Tennessean landed in the bottom two along with Kree Harrison, but she's the one who had to sing for her life on Thursday, April 18.

She performed The Supremes' "You Keep Me Hangin' On" to show that she deserved to stay on the competition, but the judges decided not to use the save. "There's two for and two not for, so unfortunately, baby, it's not unanimous. We're not gonna use it," Randy Jackson announced, saying that the debate was "tough." He added, "We love you, though. We love-love you. Thank you."

Nicki Minaj indeed had predicted on Wednesday that Janelle would get low votes from audience, but told her, "You need to know you were great." Jimmy Iovine, meanwhile, critcized her song choice on "Ladies' night", calling her choice of "Dumb Blonde" a case of "right diva, wrong song."

With Janelle's elimination, it means Kree is in the Top 4 along with Candice Glover, Angie Miller and Amber Holcomb.

The latest results show saw the return of former Idols Clay Aiken, who sang "Bridge Over Troubled Water", and Fantasia Barrino, who performed her new song "Lose to Win". Former "Idol" judge Paula Abdul also made appearance, praising Candice's performance of "Straight Up" on Wednesday night. Fall Out Boy, Jordin Sparks and Jason Derulo were additionally seen watching from the audience.

It's funny because I thought Janelle sang the best (besides when she did the acoustic version of yesterday) when she was singing for her life. I wish that she did more performances like that. Personally I think if she did Jewels song"Who will save your soul" while playing guitar it would have been a home run, I would have LOVED to have heard that. I was surprised that Kree was in the bottom, I loved her performance of the counting crow's song. Candice as usual did amazing, I was blown away by her rendition of "straight up", I think it was risky to do "when you believe" because my favorite thing about that song has always been the harmonies between the two powerhouse divas of our time. Amber, hmmm. I didn't like her version of Mariah Carey's song, It wasn't in her range (I mean Mariah has an 8 octave range!) however her Barbara Streisand performance was incredible!! One of the most shocking moments, and one of the best performances. Now to get to Angie. I will give her credit for "Halo" but I feel like she was using the Boston tragedy in a very "pageant" move. I thought her "home town" was from Florida, I remember specifically in the beginning of the season it was between her and another contestant and they were from the same "home town" in florida and he got the most votes from them not her. Anyway it's irrelevant but I totally get why Jimmy says she's not genuine, because she's not. I've always gotten such a fake "pageant" kind of vibe from her. She just loves to soak up any positive attention the judges throw her way, I won't deny that she has talent but I can't take fake people.
