BEIJING, May 11(Xinhuanet) -- The Top 3 American Idol was revealed with the result of the ups of Jessica Sanchez, Joshua Ledet and Phillip Phillips, according to media reports Friday.

It is not known whether Jimmy Kimmel, one of the judges, whose comments on "her crashed and burned performance" or the very name of her song brought bad luck to Hollie Cavanagh, the fourth contestent who was eliminated on the spot.

The four contestants performed well Wednesday night when they gave an open show "California Dreamin" at the cut-throat completion in the States.

Phillip was up first due to his outstanding performance. Then came David Cook, the former winner of American Idol, to cheer the competition, although his hairstyle was not good as his sound of singing.

Jessica and Joshua won their honor both with their golden voices. Jimmy "thought Jessica’s second song was awesome and he just loved Joshua's second performance to no end."

After a break, Jennifer Lopez, a specially invited guest, was invited to entertain the warm audiences before the host declared that Hollie ended up on the fourth place.

Hollie lost mainly due to her second failed performance of "Bonnie Raitt's classic--I Can't Make You Love Me."

According to People net, "the top three will be heading home for their hero's welcome this weekend. Next week, they'll be back to perform for the judges and America's votes again."
