'Idol' Watch: The First Cut!
The hammer fell on American Idol last night as the season's first finalist was eliminated from the competition -- but in a new twist, it was the judges and not America that did the axing.
The bottom three boys and the bottom three girls were put in Ryan's harsh spotlight and they were: Joshua Ledet, Jermaine Jones, Jeremy Rosado, Erika Van Pelt, Shannon Magrane and Elise Testone.
When all was said and done, the judges were forced to eliminate either Elise or Jeremy -- and opted to send the baby-faced boy home.
Did Jennifer, Randy and Steven make the right decision?
