It was another emotional night on American Idol after one of Mariah Carey’s favorite contestants was sent home.
After Wednesday nights performances, one could have guessed that Lazaro Arbos was going to be eliminated after the singer forgot his lyrics for the second time this season. But the singer received enough votes to put him through to next week. As, for Burnell Taylor, he wasn’t so lucky.
The 19-year-old Louisiana native muddled his way through his rendition of Bon Jovi’s, “You Give Love a Bad Name”, landing himself in the bottom two.
Taylor’s attempt to earn a save with India Arie’s “Ready For Love” was unsuccessful, and the judges decision to keep the Hurricane Katrina survivor in the competition was not unanimous. “I’m sorry, no … Good luck brother, we love you, we love you,” Randy told Burnell.
As Burnell was sent home packing, Mariah wore her emotions on her sleeve, and started to cry. This wasn’t the first time Carey cried over the 19-year-old. During auditions, Taylor’s voice moved Mariah to tears as well.
Idol is now down to their bottom six. Who will go home next?
Check out Burnell’s journey on the show below:
