We can't wait to see what you'll do next! Tim Olstad found it hard to contain his tears after his elimination. Tim Olstad was devastated to be elimination, but we know he will not hang up his microphone any time soon. The Top 10 showed off their silly sides backstage before the Top 10 elimination show. The Top 10 enjoyed some quality time with our host Mario Lopez before their British Invasion performances. Khaya Cohen and Tim Olstad enjoyed their time backstage. Little did they know that they would both be eliminated the next night. After another "This is it" from Mario, Rion Paige, Josh Levi, Alex & Sierra, and Lillie McCloud were sent to safety. That was one act from each category. Kelly Rowland jumped for joy after Jeff Gutt was sent to safety, meaning she didn't have to lose anyone tonight. Ellona Santiago and Restless Road were also safe, which meant that poor Paulina Rubio was going to have to choose one of her boys to go home. During the goodbye package, Paulina came up on stage to comfort her guy. Poor Tim was eliminated during the 4 Chair Challenge only to be immediately brought back, only to be given some tough critiques each week. But he took it like a champ, and he should be very proud of his ninth place finish. Kelly commented on the the determination and sincerity she saw in both boys' performances, and then voted to send Tim Olstad home. Demi admitted to being critical of each of these boys, and was emotional because she didn't want to hurt anyone. Ultimately, she voted for Tim to go home. The toughest decision of the night was in Paulina's hands. She said, "You two are my boys. You're so talented. You both are hard workers. You deliver. You have that great voice, and you are multi-fa-CE-ted." This was the most emotional we've seen Paulina, who ended up eliminating Tim Olstad from the competition. Drawing out the decision makes it harder on the contestants. Once she let Tim go, he was able to breathe again.
