Update: Annie’s recap is live

Now that the young ‘n’ hot Top 12 season 10 contestants have croaked their way through songs from the years they were born on Wednesday night’s performance show, it’s up to grizzly old America to decide which unlucky soul with a sassy iTunes headshot will shuffle off into obscurity tonight.

Chat here about American Idol‘s one-hour results show, and I’ll update this post with the name of the eliminated contestant as soon as it’s announced. Update: The eliminated contestant is…. Karen Rodriguez, who was joined by Haley Reinhart and Naima Adedapo in the bottom three.

Come back later for my full recap, a detailed on-the-scene report, and an exit Q&A with the eliminated contestant!
