America's vote decided who was in the Top 5! The six remaining contestants all battled it out on Wednesday in the hope to earn one of the coveted spots, but someone didn't make it through!

The judges looked fierce and ready to face yet another contestant elimination on Thursday.

America has spoken and now Alex, Caleb, C.J. Jena, Jessica and Sam have to face the music!

We got a peek at what hunky judge Harry Connick, Jr. would look like with blonde hair!

Sam, Caleb and C.J. were called to the stage first to hear the results of America's vote.

Sam Woolf was the first contestant named safe.

Caleb Johnson sailed into the next round of the competition.

That put C.J. Harris in the bottom two for yet another week. What would the final results reveal?

Jena Irene's solid performances easily earned her a spot in the next round of the competition.

Alex Preston's superior artistry earned him a spot in the next round.

Jessica Meuse joined her fellow Alabama native in the bottom two for the night. One person would definitely be returning to the Southern state after Thursday's show.

Ryan quickly revealed that C.J. Harris received the lowest number of votes and was eliminated from the competition.

C.J. performed "Can't You See" by the Marshall Tucker band for his final performance.

Though visibly shaken from his elimination, C.J. Harris still delivered the emotionally charged performance that America has come to expect from him week after week.

In the blink of an eye IDOL™ went down to only five contestants. Each week we'll be forced to say goodbye to a talented performer until we reach the finale! Tune in Wednesday at 8/7c on FOX to watch them square off for a shot at the title!
