American Idol has its final four!

After Skylar Laine, Joshua Ledet, Hollie Cavanagh, Phillip Phillips and Jessica Sanchez each performed a song from the '60s and another one from the British pop songbook, the top five faced another elimination on Thursday.

And all eyes were on Hollie Cavanagh, who's been a regular in the bottom, but had two impressive performances with Tina Turner's "River Deep-Mountain High" and Leona Lewis's "Bleeding Love."

So did she survive another week? Keep reading to find out ...





Hollie was in the bottom two again but she was declared safe. The other contestant in the bottom two, Skylar Laine, was sent home in what can only be called a shocking night of results.

Skylar, 18, from Brandon, Miss., was the top 13's only country singer and built momentum week after week with high-energy performances that nearly always pleased the judges. Jennifer Lopez, in particular, always admired her "attack."

But Lopez also said that with such a talented top five, it's a "toss-up" at this point in the competition.

And that will likely be the case next week, when the final four – Joshua, Jessica, Phillip and Hollie – take the stage again.
