American Idol sent four more contestants packing on Thursday, including guitar toting Haeley Vaughn, Gospel singer Jermaine Sellers, Michelle Delamor and John Park. Park was the first to get the axe after landing in the bottom two with Todrick Hall. He had performed John Mayer’s “Gravity” Tuesday. Controversial at times, Jermaine Sellers was the next to be sent home, after both he and Andrew Garcia were brought to the middle of the stage in the bottom two. When asked whether he thought comments made during Tuesday’s performance round were behind the vote, Sellers told Ryan Seacrest “No”. Sellers, leaving the show “happy,” went on to say “Where I sing from — you can’t be taught how to riff and run and sing high notes. I’m a church singer. That’s where I come from.” After a performace from former ‘Idol’ contestant Danny Gokey (“My Best Days Are Ahead of Me”), Michelle Delamor faced elimination. Based on her performance of Creed’s “With Arms Wide Open” the night before, Delamor was eliminated instead of fellow contestant Didi Benami. “I think I was so wrapped up in trying to do everything right while being judged that I kind of lost sight of just performing,” said Delamor. Hailey Vaughn was the final contestant to go Thursday. An early favorite, Vaughn was criticized for her lack of training and as a result ended the night with a performance of “The Climb”. American Idol returns for its third week on Fox, Tuesday, March 9 at 8pm.
