The singers, who had fallen into the bottom three alongside Paul Mcdonald, were sent home tonight after it was revealed by host Ryan Seacrest that they had received the lowest number of votes following last night's performances.
The singers who are still in the running are Lauren Alaina, Casey Abrams, Paul McDonald, Pia Toscano, James Durbin, Jacob Lusk, Haley Reinhart, Stefano Langone, and Scotty McCreery.

Naima and Jacob performed Ashford & Simpson's 'Solid' while Haley, Thia and Pia chose Katy Perry's 'Teenage Dream'. Casey, James, Paul and Stefano also came together for a rendition of 'Band On The Run' by Paul McCartney and Wings.
