American Idol Recap: Who Was Sent Home?



It was another emotional night on American Idol after one of Mariah Carey’s favorite contestants was sent home.

After Wednesday nights performances, one could have guessed that Lazaro Arbos was going to be eliminated after the singer forgot his lyrics for the second time this season. But the singer received enough votes to put him through to next week. As, for Burnell Taylor, he wasn’t so lucky.

The 19-year-old Louisiana native muddled his way through his rendition of Bon Jovi’s, “You Give Love a Bad Name”, landing himself in the bottom two.

Taylor’s attempt to earn a save with India Arie’s “Ready For Love” was unsuccessful, and the judges decision to keep the Hurricane Katrina survivor in the competition was not unanimous. “I’m sorry, no … Good luck brother, we love you, we love you,” Randy told Burnell.

As Burnell was sent home packing, Mariah wore her emotions on her sleeve, and started to cry. This wasn’t the first time Carey cried over the 19-year-old. During auditions, Taylor’s voice moved Mariah to tears as well.

Idol is now down to their bottom six. Who will go home next?

Check out Burnell’s journey on the show below:

    Yes, Burnell didn’t have the best performance of his run on the show but it wasn’t as bad as Lazaro’s song. Still, he remains and we say goodbye to a great singer. Sometimes life just isn’t fair. I work late at my DISH office so I miss a lot of the Idol shows live. I don’t mind though because I can instantly skip commercials with my DISH Hopper DVR so easily and yet I save enough time watching commercial free I can get ready for work and watch at the same time. I get more TV in my life that way and I don’t get the results spoiled by someone at work.

Watch: Halle Berry Issues Whiskey Challenge During ‘Kingsman’ Interview



Halle Berry proved she could hang with the fellas when she downed a glass of whiskey at Comic Con alongside her Kingsman: The Golden Circle co-stars. But don’t expect her to do that again.

“No more, no more,” she said after hilariously bolting from the room when we asked her if she’d drink another glass. “I will never [do it again], and no one lets me live down the fact that I did it either.”

According to Berry she was ill for three days after, but that didn’t stop her and Pedro Pascal from daring me to throw back a glass right before our interview.

Not one to turn down a challenge, I did it, and received a round of applause and high fives before preceding to discuss the duo’s roles and why they decided to join the cast of Kingsman.

“Matthew Vaughn’s version of these movies always interested me” explained Berry who is no stranger to spy flicks after starring in the James Bond film Die Another Day. “I was apart of the Bond series and I feel like this is similar but it’s also for the new generation.”

She continued, “Some of the elements are the same but I call it spy thriller 2.0, he takes it to the next level that no one else does right now.”

In the film Berry, Pascal, Jeff Bridges and Channing Tatum play members of the Statesmen – a U.S. Spy agency operating out of a Kentucky Bourbon distillery. Pascal told us he gained a newfound appreciation for men in suits, but still prefers his jeans.

“I play agent whiskey. I’m a southern gentlemen so I’m a little more buttoned up … I’m like the stateside version of those square pegs from across the pond,” he joked.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle hits theaters September 22.
