Who got voted off American Idol on May 12 was revealed Wednesday night. Who got voted off American Idol on May 12 was decided based on Tuesday’s performances of Songs from Cinema week, where the Top 4 contestants all performed famous ‘movie’ songs. It was an interesting night, but it was unclear if some of these contestants could actually sell one of these songs as a hit single or on an upcoming album. Those performances, unfortunately, would end up dictating who got voted off American Idol on May 12, and who would be making it into the Top 3 for next week’s performance show. In addition to that question was whether or not this episode of American Idol was going to run long as well (again).
The 2010 American Idol Top Four
Last week it was Aaron Kelly that went home, with Michael Lynche joining him in the bottom two. It showed that Michael Lynche was still at risk, just a few shows after he had to be saved from going home by the American Idol judges. With Siobhan Magnus getting sent home the week before, it also left just one girl still in the competition, and she is a strong one at that. Would Crystal Bowersox survive another week of the competition? Or could she be at risk out there on her own now? Would this be the week that Michael Lynche failed to get enough support to stay on the show? On the results show would know for sure!
The American Idol Results Show on May 12 was based on the performance videos that follow:

With the guest performances planned for the May 12 results show (Bon Jovi, Daughtry and Fantasia), it meant that there would probably also be a long delay until the results were finally read. The elongated shows really are starting to seem like nothing more than a place for artists to plug their music, and not actually anything that is used to further the show itself. There are certainly quite a few viewers that tune in to see the contestants, and aren’t pleased when they try to pack in more celebrity-performers instead of having group numbers. Why must there be so much filler in between what we want to see, and what the producers force us to sit through when they finally get to the results?

Casey James was the first contestant put through the stress of having Ryan talk about him, and it ended up being good news for Mr. James. Casey James became the first contestant to make it into the Top 3.
Lee Dewyze was the second contestant told that he was safe (after a lot of drama), and that meant that it would either be Michael Lynche or Crystal Bowersox going home at the end of the night.
The contestant who got voted off American Idol May 12 was Michael Lynche.
