"American Idol" Recap: Kristen O'Connor Is Eliminated

FOXKristen O'Connor was eliminated from American Idol on Thursday night.  

The 24-year-old from Sebastian, Florida, had fallen into the bottom three with Malaya Watson and MK Nobilette. She made a bid for the judges' save by reprising her performance of Adele's "Turning Tables" from last week. But Harry Connick, Jr. informed her that he, Jennifer Lopez and Keith Urban could not reach a unanimous decision.

The one-hour results show began with the top 13 performing OneRepublic's "Counting Stars" and Imagine Dragons' "Radioactive."

Reigning Idol champ Candice Glover returned to sing a medley of her songs "Cried" and "Same Kinda Man," off her debut album, Music Speaks.

British singer-songwriter Jake Bugg, of whom Keith Urban spoke highly, delivered a live rendition of his tune "Me and You."

The 12 remaining contestants will take the stage again next Wednesday night for a "Home"-themed performance show. It will air on Fox at 8 p.m. Eastern time.

The following night, former American Idol winner Phillip Phillips will make an appearance on the results show, performing his new single, "Raging Fire."
