Spoiler: Two leave American Idol

Two singers have been kicked off American Idol

Two more American Idol finalists have been shown the way home.

Naima Adedapo and Thia Megia were booted off the US talent show last night (Thursday) after host Ryan Seacrest revealed they had garnered the fewest votes.

Earthy 26-year-old dance instructor Naima had performed I'm Still Standing during the Sir Elton John-themed evening, while 16-year-old high school student Thia sang Daniel.

Joining the duo in the bottom three was smiley 26-year-old singer-songwriter Paul McDonald who sang Rocket Man.

Naima and Thia were sent packing after the judges overturned viewers' votes last week to save quirky 20-year-old film camp counsellor Casey Abrams. He redeemed himself Wednesday with a tender take on Your Song.

"If you knew how many (votes) you got, you'd be very proud," Ryan told him.

Judge Randy Jackson proclaimed Naima's reggae rendition of I'm Still Standing was "kinda corny" and told Thia her choice of Daniel was "once again very safe." Before their dismissal, former Idol winner Fantasia crooned Collard Greens And Cornbread and the top 11 finalists split up for various duets and group performances.

The other remaining finalists are Lauren Alaina, 16, James Durbin, 22, Stefano Langone, 21, Jacob Lusk, 23, Scotty McCreery, 17, Haley Reinhart, 20, and Pia Toscano, 22. Another singer will be eliminated next week.

Libra:

Sorting out and organising your surroundings should be your first priority. As a general rule, you don't mind an untidy workspace. As far as you're concerned, messiness is a sign of genius. There comes a point when even the most talented person has to make order from chaos. It may take a few hours to sort through all the papers that have accumulated, but take heart. Once you dispose the junk, you'll be able to zip through chores like a hot knife through butter.More
