Karen Rodriguez was sent home Thursday night on American Idol after performing “Love Will Lead You Back” on Wednesday night. Take a look back on her emotional journey on American Idol.
Haley Reihart, Naima Adedapo joined Karen in the bottom three, but America decided it was Karen’s time to leave.
After Karen performed Mariah Carey‘s “Hero” to sing for the judges save, she told the judges, “I know I can do so much better and I know you guys believe in me. And my mom believes in me. I know it’s about the votes, but I’ve done my best to represent for everybody, for my family — for everyone.”
But Randy Jackson told the 21-year-old they were not going to use their save. However, he also said it was not a unanimous decision.
