Oh, what a difference a week makes.

Last Thursday, the American Idol top 8 spent elimination night celebrating the judge's choice to use their only save of the season on contestant Sam Woolf, but this week the reality set in that there are no more second chances.

Coming off a strong night of performances on Wednesday's '80s-themed show, it was anyone's guess which of the remaining contestants would be placed in the bottom three and who would be sent home with the lowest number of votes.

Keep reading to find out who was eliminated.

"Even when you're hungry as heck, hot as heck, emotions are high, you've gotta remember to keep that character cool. Like Cool Hand Luke. Just keep it cool."
– Brian Heidik, winner, Survivor: Thailand

Survivor has really been an emotional roller coaster for poor Spencer. One minute, he's exulting in the highest highs, contorting his body in jubilation like he's just won the Game of Thrones as he celebrates a challenge win or an idol clue. The next minute, he's stomping his feet like his brother was a guest at the Red Wedding.

Wednesday night on Survivor, we got to see Spencer at his best and his worst. On the one hand, he was subtle and calculating like the chess master he is. On the other, he was abrasive and angry like the young kid he also is.

The episode starts with the tribe coming back to camp and Spencer is pissed. Kass has just flipped on his alliance, and suddenly what seemed like a sure path to the final six now looks like a trail to the jury bench.

It was a day she never thought would be possible. On April 4, a beaming Taylor Armstrong exchanged vows with new husband John Bluher, finally finding the happy ending she'd so longed for.

Armstrong's first marriage, to Russell Armstrong, was turbulent and abusive, even landing the reality star in the hospital. Then, just one month after Armstrong filed for divorce in July 2011, Russell committed suicide, leaving her with unpaid bills, an outstanding lawsuit and their then 5-year-old daughter, Kennedy, to raise on her own.

"When everything you think is one way turns out to be different, it's a scary feeling," Armstrong, 42, tells PEOPLE. "I couldn't fathom ever loving somebody again, ever trusting somebody again."

Illness Almost Keeps Two American Idol Singers from Performing

This isn't how they wanted to go viral.

The American Idol Top 8 gave strong performances Wednesday night, but at least two of them almost weren't able to perform due to illness.

"In rehearsal today, my voice totally went out," Caleb Johnson told PEOPLE following his performance. "There was so much crud in my throat. I couldn't breathe. We had to lower the key just so I could get through it tonight."

Johnson, 22, says he came down with bronchitis last week and had to visit the doctor three times before his symptoms finally began to recede.

"It was awful," he told reporters of not being able to sing to his fullest potential on Wednesday. "My voice kind of went out towards the end of the song. I just thought, 'Oh, Jesus. Just let me get through it.' "

Johnson wasn't alone. Dexter Roberts also fell ill this past week.

American Idol's Top 8 sang songs from the golden age of Madonna under the tutelage of season 7 winner David Cook Wednesday.

Here are the singers who had "The Eye of the Tiger" and those who were more "Borderline."

The Real Housewives of New York City was filled with magical creatures Tuesday night, including mermaids, tooth fairies and Diddy divas.

Hell in the Hamptons took a turn for the worse after last week when Heather Thomson continued to defend friend Carole Radziwill over the never-ending Bookgate battle.

"Get this bitch outta here … someone needs to take out the trash," Thomson said about Aviva Drescher's pal, Amanda Sanders, before turning her wrath (and a lot of f-bombs) on Drescher herself. "Aviva, you are full of empty bull––––. No one likes you. No one wants to be around you."
