Jeremy Rosado has become the latest contestant to be eliminated from the eleventh season of American Idol.

The Top 13 hopefuls learned the results of a public vote tonight after their Stevie Wonder and Whitney Houston covers on Wednesday's (March 7) episode, for which Jessica Sanchez once again topped a Digital Spy poll to find readers' favourite contenders.

Rosado, who sang a shaky rendition of 'Ribbon in the Sky' on Wednesday, was sent home after ending up in the bottom four alongside Shannon Magrane, Elise Testone and Jermaine Jones.

After the public vote, he ended up in the bottom two with Testone, with the judges granted the right to choose who stays for one week only as part of a twist to mark the show's 400th episode.

Of America's decision, judge Randy Jackson said, "It wasn't either of their best performances... I don't think it's exactly right."

The judges ultimately decided to save Testone, who received less than stellar comments for her Whitney Houston cover on Wednesday evening's show.

In reaction to the elimination, Rosado said only that his time on American Idol has been "an amazing experience".
