‘American Idol’ Has It’s Top 3

Bye bye, Big Mike. Hello, Top Three.

After first putting Casey James into safety and then Lee Dewyze, Michael Lynche and Crystal Bowersox were hanging out in the possible-elimination-spotlight, which created zero tension because who thought Crystal was going home? Lynch, who arrived at the Meet the Top 12 event back on March 11, was technically eliminated previously but given another shot by the judges.

“It’s been unbelievable,” said Lynch. “I sit here right now and think, ‘I wasn’t even supposed to be here.’ Thank God for the judges saving me.”

Well after weeks of ending the bottom three (why didn’t America like Big Mike?), it was finally his time to go home.

Check out the elimination after the jump.
