Alexis Grace Voted Off "American Idol 8"
On Wednesday, 21 year old mom Alexis Grace was voted off "American Idol" and won't be going on the Idols tour. On Tuesday's performance show the Top 11 sang country music and were mentored by Randy Travis. Kris Allen, Danny Gokey, Anoop Desai and Matt Giraud were the standouts of the night, earning praise from all four judges. On Wednesday Ryan Seacrest revealed that the bottom three were Alexis Grace, Michael Sarver and Allison Iraheta. Ultimately it was Alexis who had received the least amount of votes and had to perform one last time hoping the judges would save her. Unfortunately for her the judges didn't save her and she was eliminated. Next week the Top 10 travel to Detroit where they will be mentored by Smokey Robinson and Motown founder Berry Gordy Jr. Next week's shows will air Wednesday and Thursday because of Obama's speech.
