American Idol 2014 Top 8 Elimination Results! [VIDEOS]

We don’t know what to expect on the American Idol results show tonight. We found it difficult to predict who would end up in the season 13 Top 8 finalists this week. The problem wasn’t just figuring out who was eliminated on American Idol tonight by the voters, but also if the judges would end up using the save. We might just end up with a whole repeat of the American Idol 2014 Top 9 performances again next week!

Dexter Roberts

We think the American Idol judges will use their save this season, and they only have a few weeks left to do it. But whether or not they will use it tonight will probably all depend on which contestant ends up being voted out by the viewers.

In our American Idol elimination results prediction earlier today, we placed our bet that Majesty Rose York would be the most likely person to end up on bottom this week. If that did end up being the case, we didn’t think the judges would use their save to keep her from being the singer who got voted off American Idol this week.

If, on the other hand, Dexter Roberts somehow ended up last in the votes, we did believe the judges would use their save to keep him. As the only cut and dry country artist on the show, we didn’t see the judges or the producers being willing to let him be the one who went home on American Idol just yet.

As for the rest of the finalists, it wasn’t an easy call to choose who else might end up in the bottom three on the American Idol 2014 results show tonight. We thought perhaps it could be CJ Harris, in which case we didn’t think the judges would save him either. While he’s very talented, he just hasn’t really established an identity for himself this season.

And here we go!

To kick off the show tonight, we have our usual video montage of the finalists chatting about their performances over dinner. Caleb Johnson talks about Jennifer Lopez calling him sexy. Alex Preston pulls out a shoe and slams it on the table, bringing us back to Ryan Seacrest taking off his shoe and sock for Harry Connick Jr. last night. And then it’s on to the results show!

Ryan introduces the American Idol judges as they walk in and J-Lo is looking super hot tonight in a red dress that shows off her killer curves. Then we move on to mentor Randy Jackson talking about the performances from last night. He says his three type favorites were Caleb, Malaya Watson, and Jena Irene Ascuitto. Randy says the “cream is starting to rise to the top.”

Tonight we’re going to do the American Idol results a little differently by showing who is safe for the evening on the big screen. And we’re going right to our first results now.

The first person safe tonight is… Jena Irene! Next up as safe tonight is… Malaya Watson! And we keep rolling right along. The next person moving forward based on America’s votes is… oh wait, we won’t find out until after a commercial break and guest performance from Janelle Monáe.

We don’t really have a lot to say about that guest performance. It was peppy and fun, but not really our kind of thing. If you like cartoon music, it’s probably right up your alley.

Now on to more results. The next person moving on to next week is… Alex Preston! The fourth person who will be back on the stage next week is… Jessica Meuse!  And the singer coming up safe next is… Caleb Johnson!

So now we’re down to Majesty Rose York, CJ Harris, Dexter Roberts, and Sam Woolf. The person from these four that is safe tonight and will stay with us another week is… Dexter! That means Sam, CJ, and Majesty are the bottom three.

Another commercial break and it’s time for the final results. The person who is not in the bottom two tonight is… Sam Woolf! That means it’s down to CJ Harris and Majesty Rose. Host Ryan Seacrest draws it out… and the last person safe tonight is… CJ Harris!

Majesty Rose will have to sing for the save and we don’t think the American Idol judges are going to give it to her.

And no, the judges are not going to give Majesty the save. She has been eliminated.
