Journey Ends for Megan Joy on American Idol

Los Angeles (E! Online) –

Following a rousing group performance of the Journey classic—was that Danny Gokey or Steve Perry out there?—another American Idol hopeful had to go, bringing the number of aspiring hitmakers down to eight.

In a tiny bit of twist, no contestant knew—for sure, that is—if he or she was safe until the second half hour of the show.

And in a bigger twist, Simon Cowell let tonight’s castoff know in no uncertain terms that her swansong was going to be her final solo performance on the Idol stage.

Sure enough, after doing her best bird impression by flapping her wings and squawking to the side when informed she was in the bottom three, Megan Joy’s encore of “Turn Your Lights Down Low” was it for her.

“Megan, with the greatest respect, when you said that you don’t care—nor do we,” Simon told her before she sang. “So I’m not going to pretend that we’re even going to contemplate saving you.”

  1. I was hopeful that they were really going to do the song justice but…..I was wrong, I think the guys Chris Danny and Adam gave it an ok shot but it really reminded me of a high school musical this was definitely not a highlight of the show for me.I wish they would have had Randy Jackson do the guitar solo now that would have been something to talk about! I bet poor Steve was cringing while watching it,I know I was.
