American Idol 13 Top 4 Jessica Meuse was eliminated from the competition on May 8. The singer was widely expected to be sent home after a mixed reception from the judges to her 3 performances Wednesday night. She became very emotional as she watched her goodbye package.
She stood on the stage with Alex Preston as Ryan Seacrest revealed which of them would be leaving the competition. Jena Irene and Caleb Johnson had been already declared safe earlier. The 3 remaining contestants will head to their hometowns this weekend for a heroes welcome, to be videotaped by Idol for broadcast next week.
Jessica won’t be heading back to Slapout, AL to celebrate with friends and family tomorrow, but I bet they are proud of her anyway. She’ll be leaving for New York City soon, to perform on Live with Kelly and Michael on Monday. It’s likely she’s the yet-to-be named American Idol finalist scheduled to perform at the FOX Upfronts scheduled for later in the afternoon!
Watch Jessica’s emotional send off. She sobs as she watches her video package, but gets her self together to perform a fierce version of her original song “Blue Eyed Lie.”
