After Elise Testone's elimination last night, we now know that our top five American Idol contestants are:
- Hollie Cavanaugh
- Jessica Sanchez
- Joshua Ledet
- Phillip Phillips
- Skylar Laine
I thought it would be fun to take a look back at all the top five finalists from Seasons 1-10 of American Idol to see how they fared, and how fans think they stack up against this year's five finalists.
First Up: American Idol's Season One Top 5 Finalists were:
- Kelly Clarkson
- R. J. Helton
- Tamyra Gray
- Justin Guarini
- Nikki McKibbin
The Top 5 perfomed Burt Bacharach Love Songs
Kelly Clarkson - Dionne Warwick's "Walk On By"
R. J. Helton - Christopher Cross's "Arthur's Theme (Best That You Can Do)"
Tamyra Gray - Dionne Warwick's "A House is Not a Home"
Justin Guarini - Dusty Springfield's "The Look of Love"
Nikki McKibbin - Lou Johnson's "(There's) Always Something There to Remind Me" (Lou Johnson)
After the votes were tallied, R.J. Helton and Nikki McKibbin were in the Bottom 2 and R.J. Helton was eliminated.
