It was Elise Testone’s time to bow out of the contest and leave it to the tiny teens.
The judges had crtiticized Elise’s choice of an obscure Jimi Hendrix song and Jimmi Iovine didn’t like her Queen song, either, labelling it a “monotone stadium anthem” that had “come off clubby — like I was in a nightclub somewhere in the back of beyond.”
Well, that’s OK, because I think Elise would be perfectly happy playing those kinds of gigs. She always said she would.
Elise was joined in the bottom three this week by Skylar Laine and Hollie Cavanagh. But Skylar was soon declared safe. That left Hollie and Elise in the hot seats but Elise got the worst news of all and with no judges’ saves left (like they would have ever used it on Elise!) then Elise Testone was out of the competition.
