I’m sure by now you probably know which contestant American Idol bid adieu to. And even if you didn’t, I’m pretty sure you had a good idea which lady was in danger. Out of all the eliminations during Season 12, this one was the easiest to predict. That’s why I’m not even going to wait til the jump to reveal that **SPOILER ALERT** Amber Holcomb was finally sent packing. Love the girl, but it was definitely time for her to go.

Proving her inability to pick the right song was part of her undoing, the 19-year-old selected Whitney Houston’s “I Believe In You And Me” as her farewell song. Why she picked it is mind-boggling. Her original cover wasn’t anywhere near her best performance during her entire run. And her second attempt at it wasn’t any better. Though I’ll give her a pass as I’m sure her emotions got the best of her. That end where Amber choked up à la Kelly Clarkson during the Season 1 finale was sorta adorable.

It’s usually a cliché when ousted contestants claim you’ll be hearing from them in the future, but I believe it in Amber’s case. She might be the Jennifer Hudson of the season. Given the right material, Holcomb could be huge.

Like Amber’s elimination, the rest of the show was anti-climatic. The hour featured performances by Season 7 winner David Cook, will.i.am and this week’s mentor Harry Connick Jr. The part I did enough from #ThrowbackThursday was catching up with Season 4 standout Constantine Maroulis. Congrats on being the first Idol alum to snag a Tony nomination. Check out all the performances, Amber’s elimination and Constantine’s update below.
