Who Went Home on 'American Idol' Tonight? There's a Twist!!!

SPOILER ALERT: DO NOT CONTINUE IF YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW THE RESULTS!

We’re just three weeks away from the finale of American Idol and now a major new twist was brought into the competition.

The top five contestants performed this week and before Ryan Seacrest read off the results to reveal the bottom two, he introduced a twist. The five contestants got to vote anonymously if they would like to keep the group together and send home two people next week or have someone go home tonight.

The results had to be unanimous, so even if one person decided to vote for someone to go home tonight, that would be the result of the twist.
