After an awkward performance of “Video Games” from Lana Del Ray, an even awkwarder but kick ass guitar riff from Joe Perry of Happy Birthday for Steven Tyler, and the new single, “Free”, from last season’s Haley Reinhart and her big side ’80s hairdo, the bottom three was DeAndre, Erika and HeeJun.


DeAndre was sent back to the couches, stranding a strong vocalist and a funny contestant.  HeeJun escaped elimination, and Erika sang “I Believe In You And Me” for one last chance at stardom on the American Idol stage.  Did the judges use their one save to give her another chance?


Randy unceremoniously broke the news…NO.  Best of luck to Erika, who never seemed to really let loose and show the audience the full extent of her voice.
