Alexis Grace chucked off from 'American Idol'
On Wednesday night Pint-sized Memphis crooner Alexis Grace got eliminated from "American Idol", one place shy of the Top 10 tour group.
Alexis, the mother of one, was placed in the bottom three, alongside country-loving Michael Sarver and teenager Allison Iraheta. However it was Alexis who received the worst news of all.
Things went from bad to worse for her when the judges took the decision of not using their new veto power to override the public vote.
"You were the one we were thinking about saving," "It's all gonna come down to this performance now." Simon Cowell told this to Alexis before she sang Dolly Parton 's "Jolene," one last time.
However unable to shake off the shock after the one-time standout learned she had received the lowest amount of votes, Alexis offered a wavering performance, and Simon delivered bad news.
Simon added, "We're kind of unanimous on this. It was good, but it wasn't good enough," "Sorry. It's the end of the line I'm afraid."
Before left the stage forever, Paula Abdul offered some comforting advice. She said, "You have an amazing life and career ahead of you my dear. Everything's going to change for you”.
