It’s coming down to the wire on American Idol with the top five contestants revealed last night. The competition is getting tighter as a fan favorite is sent home, leaving Crystal Bowersox to solely represent the girls. Catch up on artist performances from the night, including [lastfm]Shakira[/lastfm]‘s rustic collaboration with [lastfm]Rascal Flatts[/lastfm]!
It’s the part of the competition when viewers’ favorites are in danger of being eliminated from the show. Last night three faves faced the wrath of voters with “Big” Michael Lynche, Casey James, and Siobhan Magnus in the bottom.
Ultimately it was “funny little thing” Siobhan who got the country boot from the show, leaving Mama Sox as the last girl standing. Well, unless you count Casey James and his ever-flowing golden locks, he’s so pretty.
The night was filled with the biggest stars in Country music getting back to their roots while performing on the Idol stage. [lastfm]Shakira[/lastfm] performed a rootsy version of her hit “Gypsy” with Country megastars [lastfm]Rascal Flatts[/lastfm], check out the video below!
