With hometown visits looming over their heads, it was another big elimination night for American Idol's final four. Once Lauren Alaina was ushered to safety, I expected that Haley would be the one to go home after the judges gave her some negative feedback last night. To my surprise, Haley was the next to go through, leaving Scotty and James in the lurch. James was already weeping before the final result was called, and unfortunately things didn't get easier from there. I expected him to be a shoo-in for the final with all the praise he's been getting lately (especially after he brought down the house this week), but perhaps voters felt the same way and figured they didn't need to call in. Do you agree with America?
