STAGE TUBE: AMERICAN IDOL's Heejun Han After the Elimination
They just moved into the Hollywood Hills mansion, but one contestant is already moving out. Hollie Cavanagh, Skylar Laine, and Heejun Han found themselves in the bottom three on Thursday night, and Heejun was the last man standing.
While Jimmy Iovine enjoyed Heejun's "comeback" on Wednesday, he said he didn't think that it would be enough. "I don't think he sings as well as the other eight contestants at this point in the show," Jimmy explained. Heejun sang for his life, reprising his performance of "A Song for You" by Donny Hathaway, but the judges chose to not use their one save of the season on him. "Heejun, you knew this was coming yourself," Steven told him. "You took it up a couple of notches . . . unfortunately, we're gonna have to let you go." As Ryan put it, Heejun's "spirit" will be missed.
