In this April 11, 2012 photo released by Fox, Elise Testone performs on the singing competition series "American Idol," in Los Angeles.
"American Idol" said good-bye to one of its strongest rock singers from Season 11 on Thursday night.
(SPOILER: This story contains the elimination result of "Idol.")
"Weird. This is weird," remarked Elise Testone, after she learned that she was going home.
The 28-year-old won't be out of "Idol's" embrace any time soon. She's going on the "American Idol" tour this summer.
Now, just five singers remain in the competition – Phillip Phillips, Joshua Ledet, Jessica Sanchez, Skylar Laine and Hollie Cavanagh.
The Bottom 3 on Thursday included Elise, Hollie and Skylar. Hollie and Elise made up the Bottom 2.
"American Idol" returns next Wednesday on FOX.
