American Idol 2011: Tiffany Rios and Jessica Yantz get sent home

It was only a matter of time before the [[American Idol (2011 Series)|American Idol]] judges snapped to their senses and rejected horrific hopeful Tiffany Rios. Sadly, there was a little bit of collateral damage as Jessica Yantz got sent home too, following an abysmal version of Beyonce’s Irreplaceable.

You’ll remember from our Hollywood Groups post, Jessica ditched Brett Loewenstern’s group to sing with Tiffany. It turns out that Jessica went with the New Jersey singer out of pity…because no-one else would allow her to join their group.

In fact, so unpopular was Tiffany that she could only scrape together a duo. I feel a little bit sorry for Jessica, whose act of mercy saw her getting kicked out of the competition. And Tiffany – who seconds earlier called her an ‘angel’ – quickly shrugged Jessica off in order to beg the judges to give her another chance.

Ah well, a fun character while she lasted, but I’m glad she got sent home in the end.
