The tension in the air on Thursday night’s elimination episode of “American Idol” was building as we learned that Jessica Sanchez and Joshua Ledet were safe from getting the boot on the elimination show. It all came down to the wire when Phillip Phillips and Hollie Cavanagh were called to the stage to learn their fates just minutes before the show ended. In the end, the American public chose to send Hollie home instead of allowing her to advance to the final three. In case you’ve missed Hollie’s elimination, we’ve recapped it here.
After the elimination, Phillip took to his official Facebook page to say, “thank you everyone for voting and supporting me, i appreciate it so so so so so much….i cant thank you enough…im so blessed to have all this happen and i really mean it when i say thank you to you all.”
