Biggest Upset: Vino Alan’s Elimination
While we were pretty bummed about David Correy ('memba him?) and Lyric 145 getting the boot too soon, it was the shockingly early ouster of Vino Alan that had viewers up in arms. After three straight weeks of standing strong in the third-place spot behind Tate Stevens and Carly Rose Sonenclar, the head-tatted Vino tumbled down the leaderboard and right out of the competition after just one fumble, landing in 7th place. Like Lyric 145, he fell victim to the curse of the last-minute song switcheroo. His lackluster version of "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'" garnered harsh criticism – Simon Cowell called it "uncomfortable." Still, considering Diamond White, CeCe Frey and Emblem3 snuck past him, it was a terrible blow to the competition.
